Kyrie Irving is here. He’s arrived. And his arrival was electrifying.
Unfortunately, the Nets lost their home opener against the Timberwolves, but, the good news is that they turn around and play the other NYC team, the Knicks, at home in Brooklyn.
WHO: Nets vs. Knicks
WHEN: 7:30 PM EST
WHERE: YES Network [tv], WFAN [radio], Barclays Center [live]
The good thing about the Knicks roster is they have a lot of size up front. Julius Randle is a borderline All Star that has a good handle and is a bully around the rim. He had a great debut, but couldn’t bring the win home in the fourth due to cramping. With Robinson less than 100 percent, the Knicks will lean on Bobby Portis to handle interior duties.
