The Knicks had their white jerseys and the crowd on their side. What didn’t made it a home game was the Barclays Center floor. In spite of all this, the Knicks played a totally different game to the one they played a night before.

Without Carmelo Anthony, who was rested following the ankle injury a night before, and they had a hard time in stopping the Nets from scoring.

The Lopez duel was won by Brook, who outscored his twin brother, Robin Lopez 20-9. Robin, however, won the rebounding battle 12-8.

Lance Thomas, who replaced Anthony in the lineup was 2-10 from the field and finished the game with just 6 points.

Derrick Williams on the other hand, tied his career high, dropping 31 points and adding 7 rebounds off the bench. Williams was 11-17 from the field and was the key factor for New York, keeping the Knicks alive after every Nets run.

Kristaps Porzingis logged another double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds while Jose Calderon and Arron Afflalo combined for 34 buckets.

Former Knick, Shane Larkin scored 17 points off the bench and dished 5 assists.
