Game 39 - Nets @ Knicks - Friday, January 19, 7:30

When the schedule makers put this match on the board in the off season, few people would have seen it as a critical game for the Nets, but New Jersey has been disappointing and New York a bit surprising. The Nets are only two games ahead of the Knicks in the Atlantic Division, but the game means more than that. A win would put the Nets within one game of .500, where they haven't been since November 24. Eddy Curry leads the Knicks with averages of 19.1 and 7.3.
