RECAP – FINAL: #Nets 81 – #Knicks 110

Updated: April 3, 2014


The Brooklyn Nets were defeated by the New York Knicks by a score of 110-81 in Manhattan.


The Knicks came out shooting well behind JR Smith’s three 3-pointers and 11 first quarter points to the tune of a 29-20 lead after the first quarter.  The rest was more of the same as the Knicks went on a 44-19 run to push the lead to 63-38 halftime lead behind 67 percent shooting and a 20-to-12 edge in rebounding.  Brooklyn decided to wake up and put together a couple of runs in the third to get the big lead down to 14 points with three minutes left in the quarter.  The run was stopped with two more end- of-quarter 3-pointers by the Knicks.  The game was over and the benches emptied to a bad 110-81 loss to the Manhattan Knicks.

Momentum Changers:

With the Knicks leaking water and only up 74-60 with the Nets storming back Pablo Prigioni hit a 3-pointer coupled with a Nets turnover and a Smith jumper and a three put the game out of reach entering the fourth.


Brooklyn is 3rd team in the last 40 years to earn a playoff berth after entering the New Year 10+games under.500.

Joe Johnson has tied Jason Richardson for 15th in NBA history in 3-pointers made (1,577).

Brooklyn is now 30-13 in 2014.

Johnson (16) – Williams (12) – Anderson (11)

Kidd’s Corner:

Coach received his first career regular-season technical as a coach with 8:56 left in the second quarter and joked about it after.

“Accidentally, that was an accident,” Kidd said with a smile. “I was wrong,” said Kidd, “They felt that I expressed too much so I got a T. No big thing.”

Kidd on the Nets’ 14-22 road record. “There are 41 road games. … You can’t win them all.”

“If you lose by one or by 100, it’s a loss, and we move on.”




NEXT UP: The Nets will be back in action Friday night when they the Detroit Pistons in Brooklyn.  The game can be seen on MY9 at 7:30.
