Randle pours 33 as the Knicks top Nets 94-82 in Brooklyn

Coming off a three game losing streak, the Knicks struggled to get in the game but their effort was supported by the Nets’ lack of offense. With a field goal percentage of under 27%, the Nets posed no threat at all for their rivals who got back at them with a 94-82 in at the Barclays Center. The game, which was supposed to be televised nationally on TNT, was pulled off and replaced with the Mavericks-Spurs game.



Julius Randle scored a game high 33 points for New York and collected 8 rebounds while shooting 14-26 from the field, including 5-9 from behind the arc. Marcus Morris added 22 buckets and the same number of boards.

“Our guys played with great energy. I thought we really had great focus. I really felt like we did a good job with how we started making them go through us to make some plays.”
