Nets outlast Knicks in 1st NYC Pro Hoops Showdown

Here’s a clip of Knicks-Nets game from NBA.com:

In front of a sellout crowd at Barclays, Brooklyn defended its home court against the Knicks by defeating them, 96-89, in overtime Thursday. Deron Williams was magnificent once again scoring the basketball as well as passing it, finishing with 16 points and 14 rebounds. The Nets and Knicks are now tied for the Atlantic division lead with 9-4 records. The victory is a big deal for Nets fans and for a franchise looking to arise from under the shadows of its neighbors at MSG. But the Nets will have to do more than defeat the Knicks in meaningless regular season games. Brooklyn will have to win multiple championships in order to challenge for basketball supremacy in NYC.
