Neither the Knicks nor the Nets have played very inspiring basketball this season.
The difference between the two, however, is that the Nets have actually showed signs of being entertaining when we expected them not to be, while the Knicks have been a clear step (or more) beneath their expectations.
There’s also the will off-court drama that’s taken place with the Knicks, but we won’t touch on that here.
*All statistics, standings, records, rankings and trends are current as of this writing at 5:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 11, 2017.
New York Knicks
The Knicks enter this contest scoring 105.6 points per night. That number is good enough for 13th in the league.
Defensively, New York is allowing opponents to score 108.6 points per game. That number puts the team at 25th in the league.
Against Brooklyn, the goal will be to control the pace.
The Nets are going to do whatever they can to score easy buckets in transition.
By slowing things down and getting into the halfcourt triangle set, New York will force the Nets to approach the game with a similar mindset.
Head coach Jeff Hornacek has talked this season about how this team will look for transition buckets first and then default to the triangle, but as much as the players may be opposed to, getting into those sets as a default option will help them win this game.
Brooklyn enters this game scoring 105.5 points per contest. That number is good enough to put them in the upper half of the league (14th), but it doesn’t tell the whole story.
As previously mentioned, this team likes to get out and run. In fact, it’s how it scores best.
On the year, the Nets are the No. 1 team in the NBA in terms of pace. Conversely, it’s the No. 30 team in Offensive Efficiency — or points per 100 possessions.
Defensively this team isn’t any better. It gives up 114.1 points per night, which puts it in dead last in the Association.
Stopping the Knicks isn’t going to be an option come Sunday, which makes scoring quick, easy buckets in transition that much more important.

The Knicks aren’t anything to write home about this season, but the Nets are a different level of bad — which is unfortunate since they are giving their 2017 draft pick to the Boston Celtics.
