Jason Kidd will face the Nets, one of his ex-teams, for the first time as a Knick on Tuesday.
He insists that it's just another game on the schedule.
"They're looking to stop a streak and we're looking to get better," Kidd said. "There's no hype about this game."
There may not be much hype from Kidd's perspective, but you can be sure that the Knicks will be properly motivated for Round Two against Brooklyn. They lost in overtime in their first trip to the Barclays Center in late November.
"We'll be ready," Carmelo Anthony said. "I think that first game, I don't think they really did anything to beat us. We kind of beat ourselves, so we kind of have that in the back of our mind."
