Knicks Avenge Loss to Nets in Round 2 of the NYC Pro Hoops Showdown

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

The New York Knicks improved their Eastern Conference-best record to 16-5 by stunning the Nets with a 100-97 win at Barclays Tuesday Night. Though Carmelo Anthony was the star for Knicks with his 45 points, former Nets guard Jason Kidd was the hero after hitting the decisive three-point shot in the closing minutes of regulation to send Knicks fans home happy. Though on the losing end, the Nets can take some positives from the game. As was the case when the teams met the first time, Deron Williams played well, scoring 18 while dishing out 10 assists. Brooklyn also manhandled the Knicks on the glass, 48-20. Nets fans should be encouraged because for the first time in as many games this week, the team showed that they had a pulse.  But the Nets’ losing streak is now five games. I hope Brooklyn can snap out of its losing ways against the Raptors Wednesday night at the Air Canada centre in Toronto.
