The Nets came back home from Montreal to play this one ... although they’ll be in Manhattan instead of Brooklyn. Still, they’ll get to sleep in their own beds. Comfortable! For those of you who missed it, the Nets had something of a third-quarter collapse against Kawhi and the Raptors and they never fully recovered. Oh well, on to the next one ... and the last one.
The Knicks and Nets are matching up for the second time for the final game of the preseason. They also play again next Friday in the home opener. So, a lot of New York basketball to consume. These two squads are going to be quite familiar with each other this year. By the time the season is complete, they will have played each other six times: six preseason and the usual four regular season.
YES and MSG are both going to have this one at 7:30 pm ET, so no shortage of options on that end. No radio for this one again, guessing that’ll start up with the regular season. If there are any new or impartial fans trying to reach a decision on whether to watch the game with the YES or MSG announcing teams, as good as Mike Breen and Walt “Clyde” Frazier have been and as much as they’re lauded, the YES crew is hands down the most entertaining in the league and I don’t think it’s particularly close....
