The NBA is back in action as the Big Apple battle is on the schedule. The New York Knicks will clash with their local rivals, the Brooklyn Nets
The Knicks were in action at home on Saturday night as they faced San Antonio, taking a 111-104 loss.
And on the other side, Brooklyn ran over Sacramento 116-97 at home Friday night in their previous contest.
Brooklyn Nets Form
The Nets have been playing well in their last two games. Moreover, they have now won their last two games and they have a winning momentum on their side. The Nets entered Saturday fourth in the Atlantic Division, four games back of the Celtics in the division race. Also, Spencer Dinwiddie led the Nets with 23 points and seven assists in the victory over the Kings.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nets score an average of 113.7 points per game. And this is the 8th best record in the league in scoring. Also, Brooklyn has an average of 47.9 boards per game combined with 22.9 assists per night.
On the defensive side of the game, the Nets concede an average of 115.3 points per game which is enough for the 22nd defensive record in the league.
New York Knicks Form
The Knicks managed to get a solid win against the Spurs at Madison Square Garden. However, the Knicks are on the bottom spot in the Atlantic Division with 7.5 games behind the Celtics.
Also, Marcus Morris Sr. led New York with 20 points and seven rebounds in the win in Manhattan.
On the offensive side of the game, the Knicks score an average of 101.9 points per game which is enough for the 29th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average rebounding of 46.3 boards a night combined with 9.9 assists per contest this year. The Knicks are 12th in scoring defence by allowing 108.9 points per game this season
This is a derby game and it can go both ways. However, the Knicks are on the bottom spot and they are not a great team this season. On the other side, the Nets are strong at home. Also, they have the winning momentum on their side. Therefore, I expect another win for Brooklyn in this game for the Big Apple bragging rights.
