Knicks-Nets opener rescheduled for late November

The game originally scheduled for Thursday night at the Barclays center between the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks has been rescheduled for Nov. 26 at the same venue, the NBA announced Thursday. The New York area is still battling the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy, and the current conditions would have made it tough for the city's two teams and their fans to participate in what was supposed to be the season opener for both squads

The rescheduled game will still be televised on TNT. Some of the excitement around the contest will now dissipate, as it is no longer the Nets' debut in Brooklyn. The next scheduled home game for the Nets comes on Saturday against the Toronto Raptors.

The Knicks are still expected to play the Miami Heat on Friday night for their home opener. That game is set to take place at 8 p.m. ET and will be shown on ESPN.
