The NBA has officially announced that the game that was supposed to take place today between the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets has been rescheduled for Monday, November 26th at 7 PM. TNT will broadcast the game on national television because TNT was supposed to televise the game that would have been played on November 1st.
This game got postponed because of Hurricane Sandy which prevented many New Yorkers from getting to the arena. The NBA wanted to play the game but Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided to cancel it because the city is dealing with more important things now. The Nets will open up their schedule on Saturday when they host the Toronto Raptors in Brooklyn. They will be the last NBA team to play their first game. By Friday, the Los Angeles Lakers will have already played 3 games while the Nets have played none. The Knicks are scheduled to play tomorrow at home against the Miami Heat unless Bloomberg decides to cancel that game as well.
Even though this is probably the best choice of date for this game, it is unfavorable to the Nets. It will be their third game played in 4 nights and 6th game in 9 nights. However, it will still be the first time these two new rivals will face off against one another. The teams will also play on December 11th in Brooklyn and on December 19th and January 21st in Manhattan.
