NEW YORK, N.Y. — The Brooklyn Nets are up against the New York Knicks in their first preseason matchup. Head coach Kenny Atkinson named the starting lineup and talked about how they will be utilized this preseason.
- Jeremy Lin
- D’Angelo Russell
- DeMarre Carroll
- Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
- Timofey Mozgov
“I think you’ll see our main guys play more minutes than they would if it were a six-game [preseason] schedule,” Kenny Atkinson said before the game.
Asked if this will be a normal thing, Atkinson has a play-it-by-ear approach:
“I think it’s going to be a build up to the last preseason game.”
Of course, Allen Crabbe and Caris LeVert are out with minor ankle issues. Both were at the Garden warming up. No walking boot on either.
