The Knicks and Nets square off in Brooklyn for a MLK Day matinee.
Live coverage begins at 2:30 PM on MSG & MSG GO.
The Knicks have played on Martin Luther King Jr. Day every year dating back to 1987 and hold a 19-12 record on MLK Day.
This year marks the first time they’ve been on road, albeit just a borough over in Brooklyn.
The Knicks will be looking for a better performance after losing in overtime to the Pelicans Sunday after leading by as many as 19 points. They are 2-6 in the second game of back-to-back sets this season.
On the other end, the Nets last played on Saturday, losing in overtime to the Wizards.
Bill Pidto, Alan Hahn and Wally Szczerbiak look at how the Knicks were able to pull away in the fourth quarter from the Nets and hang on for a win in Brooklyn.
With a win today, the Knicks would clinch the season series after winning the previous two meetings.
They close out the season series on January 30 at The Garden.
One bright spot for the Nets this season has been the emergence of Spencer Dinwiddie.
The fourth-year player point guard thrust into action following injuries to Jeremy Lin and D’Angelo Russell. Since taking over the starting job in mid-November, he’s averaging 14.8 points and 7 assists.
