That's what some are calling the Nets-Knicks Saturday matinee--the "Anti-Finals", a recognition of how poorly the metro area's two teams have fared: two wins, 21 losses. There hasn't been more mediocre matchup at this point in a season since 1994. The lack of a quality NBA team in New York is blamed for all manner of hoops ills, even as the two teams plan for big doin's next summer. But for now, it's all small ball.
