  • [New York Newsday] Carmelo Anthony misses chance to win it as Knicks fall to Nets (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 00:09:39 EST)
    The long orange sleeves that rode high up Carmelo Anthony's arms probably covered goose bumps for most of the night. He said he gets them when he hears the Barclays Center crowd chant "Brook-lyn."

  • [ESPN.com – New York Knicks] Notebook: Nets wanted it 'a little bit more' (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 01:08:05 EDT)
    BROOKLYN — While Mike Woodson and Tyson Chandler both pointed to some fatigue as a factor leading to the Knicks’ collapse Monday night, there were mostly no excuses in the team’s locker room.
    The Knicks admitted that the Nets outplayed them down the stretch.
    “It was a hard-fought game. Our hats go off to them,” Rasheed Wallace said. “They played a good game. I guess they wanted it just a little bit more this evening.”
    Added Raymond Felton, “It was still a good game, went into overtime, but they got it.

  • [ESPN.com – New York Knicks] Melo has up-and-down night in Brooklyn (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 00:33:22 EDT)
    If he forgot for a moment that he was one of the biggest stars on the Knicks, and looked at things from the perspective of a kid from Brooklyn (which he once was), Carmelo Anthony could appreciate the atmosphere inside the Barclays Center on Monday night.
    “Unbelievable. To step back from this and take my Knicks uniform off … just to see that and be a part of that atmosphere is nothing like it,” he said.
    Unfortunately for Anthony, he also had to consider the reality of what actually happened on the court.

  • [ESPN.com – New York Knicks] Woody: 'Needed about three more Tysons' (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 00:17:39 EDT)
    Even with Tyson Chandler coming off two weak performances, Mike Woodson wasn’t concerned about his starting center entering the game against the Nets on Monday night.
    “He’s that type of competitor, so I’m not too worried about Tyson,” the Knicks coach said before the game.
    Right away, Chandler’s competitive spirit was evident, as he scored eight points in the first quarter — his best start of the season. And he finished with a career-high 28 points on 12-for-13 shooting in the Knicks’ 96-89 overtime loss.

  • [New York Daily News] Lawrence: Still Reasonable Doubt about Knicks-Nets rivalry (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 09:35:35 GMT)
    You can’t just wish a rivalry to suddenly take hold in one 48-minute basketball game. It takes time, and here it will take two strong teams with two great home crowds, in Brooklyn and Manhattan, making it impossible for the visiting team to win.

  • [New York Daily News] Felton has 99 problems from field vs. Nets (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 09:31:26 GMT)
    Raymond Felton attempted one more shot and made one more shot, or else his shooting numbers in the Knicks’ historic first game in Brooklyn would have been identical to the most infamous shooting line in team history.

  • [New York Daily News] Nets run this town for now, beat Knicks in Brooklyn 96-89 (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 08:51:28 GMT)
    The town, at least for one night, belongs to the Nets. With Jay-Z, Beyonce, Mayor Bloomberg and couple of Giants sitting courtside it was the Brooklyn Nets and not the Brooklyn-born Carmelo Anthony that posted a victory on an historic night on Atlantic Ave., not to mention the Atlantic Division.

He watched courtside next to his superstar wife, Beyonce.

  • [New York Daily News] Kidd still not Brooklyn bound after back spasms (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 06:01:25 GMT)
    Jason Kidd never made it to Brooklyn with the Nets. He hasn’t gotten there yet with the Knicks, either. Kidd didn’t accompany the Knicks for their hurricane-delayed first regular-season visit to Barclays Center because of back spasms.

  • [New York Daily News] Nets’ Deron shows Knicks: ‘The City is Mine’ (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 05:52:41 GMT)
    “Big-stageâ? Deron Williams, as dubbed by his coach, put the Nets on his back and ran by the Knicks. He was the leader the Nets envisioned when they inked him as their franchise, $98 million player over the summer, picking up as many assists (14) as the entire Knick squad in Monday’s 96-89 overtime victory.

  • [New York Post] Tyson’s monster game spoiled in OT (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 04:00:57 -0500)

      Wow..I can’t believe what I’m seeing and hearing in the media today. Not takin anything away from the Nets..hats off to them. They made plays when they needed to and eventually outplayed us. BUT IT’S ONE GAME!!! Excuse me..the Nets are a better team than the Knicks?? Are some of these people serious?? It took for us to go cold in OT for them to win. Plus we had no Kidd, Stat, or Shump. Even worse..the supporting cast shot horribly. The people in the media that took that one game too far should just wait until both squads are healthy. Still..they’ve had a heck of a start while it seems like teams are starting to figure our Melo-centric offense out. No worries I would say. Brooklyn is a big team..much like Memphis. They’re supposed to out-rebound us and get more blocks than us..at least right now. Maybe when Stat and Shump gets back that changes. My biggest concern right now is the amount of energy Tyson has to spend out there tusslin with bigs since Sheed, Camby and Thomas aren’t getting alot of run. Also I hope this one horrible game by Felton doesn’t get in his head.

    2. Nick C.

      In a way I can understand. It helps to encourage a fan base to develop in Brooklyn by putting it that way. I don’t know that any of the members of the local media is astute enough to do that. I have not watched much of Brooklyn this year. To me it seems that Williams and Lopez, while good, seem to lack a certain focus. It was good for that franchise’s sake, once I could figure out that they weren’t chanting bogus or bogans, to hear Brooklyn chants and cheers for them rather than the embarrasment of a half fileld arena 90% full of people cheering for the opposition.

      Give the nets credit, they played good defence, but my opinion is that,Felton was tossing too many shots. instead of passing and looking for the open man. It is one game.The knicks have to move on .They played well, but not good enough to win.

    4. Z-man

      Great game for WoW lovers. My takeaways:

      Nets are very physical
      Evans is a beast!
      Nets should not be taken lightly by anyone, so long as they stay healthy
      Playing without Kidd is like playing after a lobotomy
      Melo needs more rest before the 4th quarter, he was running on fumes for the last 10 minutes
      Great, great game to watch, playoff intensity from start to finish

    5. JC Knickfan

      Evan I actually suggest getting him way back June as I thought he polar opposite of Amare. PF defensive specialist that you sub in for Amare in defensive situations. He just doesn’t a lick of offensive skills.

      That “brooooook-lyn” thing is arguably the most annoying artificial noise pumped into an arena since the race car sound at old Market Square Arena. They must have played it every 45 seconds.

      I wish we had the high ground here, but Madison Square Garden has succumbed to the thunderstick-clapping, shirt-cannon-shooting, music-during-possessions fad that has essentially ruined NBA arena atmosphere. I miss the good ol’ days where the only sound was the occasional organ tune, a timely bass drum thump, and the voice of Mike Walczewski.

      Get off my lawn.

    7. JK47

      Marcus Camby is looking like a bad signing. We’re 13 games into the regular season and he does not have a field goal, is sporting a .174 TS%, can’t get more than 5 minutes of floor time in the second game of a back-to-back and generally looks like the worst player on the roster.

      What a dummy I was I thought those chants that sounded like Brooklyn after a while were actual fans.

      Now that the team isn’t shooting like 75% from 3 and playing defense on fresh legs, a few things that could kind of be ignored during the Best Start Ever are becoming more apparent about this team.

      First and foremost, while Raymond Felton may or may not be a competent PG for an elite team (jury is still out if you ask me, and I’d rather Jason Kidd run the offense 10 times out of 10 when the game is close), he is NOT an adequate second scoring option after Carmelo Anthony, at least not for a team that expects to go deep in the playoffs. Not in any way, shape or form, and neither, for that matter, is JR Smith.

      This team needs a secondary scoring option who can consistently get 18-20 efficient points (per 36) every night and function as the focal point of the offense and take over the game when Melo is on the bench (or just tired). That person’s name is Amar’e Stoudemire.
