Rant My Life: Brooklyn Nets Make Major Statement With Win Over New York Knicks
With the move up north during the offseason, expectations were high for the Brooklyn Nets heading into the 2012-13 season considering they acquired Joe Johnson from the Atlanta Hawks to play alongside stars Deron Williams and Brook Lopez. The Nets looked impressive over their first 12 games of the season, but Monday’s 96-89 overtime win over the New York Knicks was not only a huge statement that this team has what it takes to compete for the Atlantic Division, but the Eastern Conference as well.
Not only does Brooklyn currently sit on top of the division with a 9-4 record, but they’ve nearly been impossible to beat at home as Monday’s win gave them a 7-1 record. Lopez led the way for the Nets against the Knicks on Monday with 22 points and 11 rebounds while Deron Williams contributed 16 points and 14 assists of his own.
This team is certainly talented enough to make a run at their first playoff appearance since the 2005-06 season and it may be early in the year, but it’s difficult not to like the Nets potential at this point with the way they’ve played through the first 13 games. The Knicks may have been the hotter team at the beginning of the season and the Boston Celtics may have seemed like the favorites at first to win the division, but it’s the Nets that should be considered favorites at this point in the season and it should be interesting to see how much better this team gets throughout the regular season.
