OK, they were facing the Sixers. But there was definitely something different in Brooklyn last night in the Nets’ easy-breezy 130-94 victory.

The Knicks are 0-6 while wearing their orange alternate uniforms.
Here’s the issue: Lowry is a free agent after this season. If the Knicks want to re-sign him long-term it will probably cost them around eight million dollars a season, give or take.

Boston Celtics posted the most lopsided victory in the NBA this season over the woeful Knicks. The Celtics routed New York 114-73.
The Knicks are no longer the biggest losers in New York. The Brooklyn Nets look like the real Big Apple busts.
If New York City is still a holy basketball land, with ancient, blacktop altars dotting the map, then tonight’s NBA game is a savage sacrilege
Former Nets coach Byron Scott wasn’t surprised when current Nets head coach Jason Kidd’s relationship deteriorated with Lawrence Frank.
Mike Woodson just had three days of practice. I hope he used them well. It might very well be the last days he will have as head coach of the Knicks to turn this thing around. But he needs help from his players.
