The rookie sensation has been dubbed “magical” by Phil Jackson and head coach Derek Fisher added, “We obviously felt very strongly about drafting him at No. 4, we liked a lot of things about him and thought he would be a great selection.”
While it would be easy for Porzingas and the Knicks to look by Brooklyn and its 5-13 record, this won’t be an easy Nets team to match up against. The squad has won consecutive games for the first time since April and is set to start a nine-game stretch in New York. In fact, tonight marks the Nets only “road” game.
It’s time to fight for city-wide bragging rights.
Tip-off for the game is slated for 7 p.m. ET and will be nationally broadcast on ESPN. Don’t worry if you’re not near a TV screen tonight, here’s how to watch the matchup online and on mobile, including a free option:
