Preview: Knicks-Nets MLK Jr. Day City Showdown at MSG!

“It’s definitely a rivalry game. We don’t like them, they don’t like us,” Knicks guard J.R. Smith. “I like it like that. We should keep it like that. We especially can’t just let them come into our house and get a ‘W.’ That’s the main focus.” – nypost

Gotta be saying Can’t Wait… for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Knicks-Nets City Showdown at the Garden! The highly anticipated game, new rivalry will kick off at 3:30PM EST today on YES/MSG/NBATV when the improved Brooklyn Nets come cross-town to battle the NY Knickerbockers for the title of City’s finest!
