2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Nets

The Knicks take on the Nets in a game that makes Jerian Grant’s debut as a starting point guard for the Knicks due to Jose Calderon perhaps being out for the rest of the season.

The Nets are shockingly kind of fun to watch now, so even with Porzingis out, this might actually be a fun game to watch.

Always fun to watch the Lopez twins play each other.

Let’s go, Knicks! The meaningless winning streak begins soon!
