You wanted it. You got it. The Nets' first regular season game at the Barclays Center will be against the Knicks, reports Al Iannazzone. Neither team will play on the NBA's opening night, Tuesday Oct. 30, or the next night. Instead, they'll wait until Thursday, Nov. 1 to make their 2012-13 debut in Brooklyn, and the game will be televised on TNT.

It will be the first of four regular season meetings between the two teams. The rest of the 2012-13 schedule will be released at 7 p.m. on Thursday, with a special on NBA TV.

Meanwhile, Rod Boone of Newsday tweets that the Nets first "home" preseason game will be held not at Barclays but at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island, where the team won its two ABA championships in 1974 and 1976 ... and where the Nets would like to draw fans. Boone did not say who the Nets would face.
