Nets to open Barclays Center vs Knicks

Updated: July 25, 2012


According to Stefan Bondy of NY Daily News: @NYDNInterNets

“If the Nets truly found a home in Brooklyn — and not just an extension of Madison Square Garden — they’ll find out on the first day of the season. The Brooklyn Nets will open up their inaugural campaign at the Barclays Center against the Knicks on Nov. 1 in a nationally televised game at 7 p.m., a source confirmed. It’s a surprising move, and perhaps a dangerous one for the Nets, who are trying to establish themselves as Brooklyn’s team in historically Knicks territory. The Knicks will then play the Miami Heat at home Nov. 2 on ESPN, according to the Miami Herald.”

More from Bondy’s conversation with Deron Williams:
“Deron Williams said playing the Heat, not the Knicks, would bring the most excitement to the season opener.”
