Clash of the Boroughs: Nets vs. Knicks

Sitting court side, Knicks and Nets give me high fives – “Empire State of mind” Jay Z

Clash of the Boroughs round 1 took place on Monday night in Brooklyn at Barclays Center as the Nets matched up against the Knicks. This game was rescheduled as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The bright side, both teams had a chance to find their legs in the process with the Knicks having their best season start since 1993.

Of course Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce were courtside and the halftime performed was hip-hop legend, Slick Rick the Ruler – down side, word is his performance was subpar –


But back to the topic at hand, the Nets took this one 96-89 in overtime to the chants of Broooooookkkkkklynnnnn raining down. Knicks center Tyson Chandler had a few nice dunks, check those out too.

There also was another battle taking place in the stands… At least the New York Post hyped it up. The fashion battle between Knicks and Nets wifeys and significant others; Amar’e’s fiance, Alexis Welch, Steve Novak’s wife, Jerry Stakhouse’s wife Ramira and Coach Avery Johnson’s wife Cassandra… I’ll say this, Mrs. Avery Johnson is a winner.

Jay put his stamp on the game last night on Twitter. You know he only has like 5 Tweets so it’s significant when he puts one out.



How you loving that Knicks fans?
