Brooklyn dropped its third straight of the preseason Wednesday after losing to the NY Knicks, 97-95, in overtime. Steve Novak connected on a pair of three-pointers to secure the win for NY, who will play the Nets again to begin the regular season Thursday night. While it is disappointing to see the Nets finish the preseason on a low note, hope still springs eternal for this team and for the state of NYC pro basketball . NY Sports fans can perhaps attest to a legitimate rivalry between the Nets and Knicks now that they play within a 5 mile radius of each other.
