Game Preview: Knicks vs Nets- 12/8/18

Never taking shorts because Brooklyn is the playoff bound borough.

The Brooklyn Nets (9-18) will ride their fixies over to Madison Square Garden tonight. At this point it’s still unclear if they’ll remove their septum rings before the game or before the ride. The Nets broke their eight-game losing streak with an overtime win over the fanged and clawed Raptors. New York (8-18) had their last win against the two-point Milwaukee Bucks, also in overtime.

The Bucks, of course, beat the Raptors earlier this year and neither team had their best player (Kawhi Leonard, Giannis Antetokounmpo). Much like the Knicks and Nets matching up tonight without their respective stars (one Caris LeVert for Brooklyn and some mope named Kristaps Porzingis for New York). I just can’t seem to find anything similar about these two teams, other than the pallor of Sean Marks’ brilliance casting a milky shadow over the entire city’s futures.

Projected Starters

Key Matchup

Watch out for Enes Kanter pounding on Jarrett Allen. Kanter got them heavy genes and will be slamming his shoulders into Allen’s bird chest as often as possible. Kanter is averaging 22 points and 12.5 rebounds in two games against the Nets this year.

Lest we forget this preseason romper stomper:

Yea man. Kanter gives them the business.


The Nets are just such a perfect team that has never made a bad move. They are clearly a half a game better than the lol, Knicks and that means they’re making the playoffs. D’Angelo Russell has proven that he is a top 35 point guard in the league. They can’t possibly be stopped.

Knicks by -200,000.

When Nets fans wake up and realize their team is in a shakier boat than the Knicks.
