It doesn’t get much better than this to kick off the 2012-13 NBA season. After Joe Johnson fired the first shots against the Knicks, the trash talk will be settled on the court in the season opener for both the Nets and Knicks as they will meet November 1 at 7PM at the brand new Barclays Center.
The first professional sports game in Brooklyn since the Dodgers last game at Ebbets Field in 1957, the season opener will draw a ton of interest from New Yorkers. There is destined to be a great deal of Knicks fans in attendance to see their Atlantic Division rivals begin their transition to Brooklyn.
The game is set to be an intense one between both on the court between both teams, and in the stands between both both sets of fans. Expect hard fouls, physical play, and a raucous crowd on an extremely exciting sports night in New York. The battle for the city begins.
