    Game Preview

    On the surface James Harden's numbers seem to indicate a decent balance between facilitating and scoring for the Brooklyn Nets.

    Yet after the Nets fell to another opponent with a winning record, Harden admitted he is struggling at finding the right mix.

    Harden gets another chance to figure it out Tuesday when the Nets (14-6) host the Knicks (11-9) in the first meeting of the season between the intracity rivals.

    Harden is averaging 20.3 points and 9.4 assists this season as the Nets deal with the absence of an unvaccinated Kyrie Irving. Harden averaged 24.6 points per game in 36 games last season and enters Tuesday with his lowest scoring average since averaging 16.8 points in his third and final season with the Oklahoma City Thunder in the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season.

    Harden is coming off one of his worst games of the season and it was one where he still produced a triple-double of 12 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds in Saturday's 113-107 loss to the red-hot Phoenix Suns to negate 39 points from Kevin Durant.

    As the Suns posted their 16th straight win, Harden shot 4-of-15 and committed seven turnovers, marking the seventh time Harden missed at least 10 shots and the 12th time he committed at least five turnovers.

    "Honestly I'm trying to figure all that out right now," Harden admitted after the Nets saw a four-game winning streak snapped in a game where they never led and trailed by 22. "I'm trying to figure it out. I'm trying to figure out when to score, when to be a playmaker, when to run the offense, when to do a little bit of everything."

    Despite Harden's uneven start, the Nets are 12-3 in their past 15 games and have yet to drop consecutive games this season.

    New York is also trying to figure out its point guard situation. Kemba Walker has started each of the 18 games he has appeared in but is averaging a career-low 11.7 points, and on Monday, coach Tom Thibodeau said the New York native was out of the rotation and Alec Burks would be the starting point guard.

    Burks made his first start of the season Saturday when Walker sat out and in a 99-90 win at Atlanta, he scored a season-high 23 points.

    "It's a tough decision to make, but you always have to do what you think is best for the team," Thibodeau said at practice Monday. "I've got great respect for who Kemba is as a person, number one, and all that he's accomplished in this league. But I do what I think is best for the team."

    While Burks will start, it is unclear who his backup will be. Derrick Rose is averaging 12 points but was 5-for-19 in his last two games before sitting out New York's next three games with an ankle injury that has left him questionable for Tuesday.

    Regardless of what the lineup looks like, the Knicks are hoping to start putting together some consistency. They began with five wins in six games and are 6-8 in their past 14 after getting 20 points from Evan Fournier to go along with Burks' best game on Saturday.

    "Consistency is key," Fournier said. "We have to take the good stuff and do it all over again."

    Aaiight! Thanks for the Game-Thread of Knicks vs Brooklyn Rady .. The NYC B .ball showdown!
    As much as I was against the Kemba signing, I still dont agree with Thibs, or the Knicks FO decision to take Kemba out of the starter lineup. When it's Barrett's performance does not belong in the Knicks rotation.
    The Knicks starters need to start boxing-out downlow, plus come out to pick/screen opponents so we could start feeding MitchRob downlow for him to average a double-double and become a scoring threat downlow to beat opponent like Brooklyn. Or do we really need to hire a big-man coach in the new NBA to check Randle ???

    Maybe DRose isn’t capable of going 32 minutes a night for 82 games but that’s the move I would have gone with from day 1 instead of plugging the hole with Burks as our starting PG. Reminds me of times where Miller used RJ as our starting PG, it won’t last very long when there is not a true PG in that lineup tonight.

    Love Rady’s injury report.
    Kemba Out of the Rotation (out)
    Kyrie Irving This guy is cuckoo (out)

    Watch Burks TOs and assist/TO ratio tonight. If we see 8 TOs and 2 assists, Kemba may be back in the rotation again.

    Sorry to say Barrett's fans, but RJ dont fit well in the 2nd unit lineup either, the 2nd unit would've stole the lead !!!

    Obi Toppin only getting 5 min in the first half .. In a lot of Knicks games this season Obi Toppin are the fastest runner on the court .. And Thibs are clueless how to use such speed .. Shame-shame !!!

    Half-Time .. Knicks 61 - Brooklyn 60

    High scoring first half!
    Where's the Defense ???
    RJ Barrett injury has him out of the 2nd half.
    D.Rose & Burks could control the starters in the 2nd half for the Win.
    Quickley, Grimes, and Obi could hold down the 2nd unit
