NBA schedule 2012: Knicks and Nets to square off Tuesday

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets will battle it out on Tuesday at the Barclays Center.

The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are set to square off for the second time this season on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET at the Barclays Center. The Nets won the first "Battle of New York" 96-89 in overtime back on Nov. 26.

The Knicks currently sit atop the East's Atlantic Division with a 12-5 record. The Nets have lost four straight games after starting 11-4.

After facing the Nets, the Knicks have a TNT showdown with the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. The Lakers are struggling mightily under new coach Mike D'Antoni, sporting a record of just 9-12 after entering the season with so much hype.

The Nets follow up their bout with the Knicks with a contest against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. The Raptors have gotten off to a dreadful start this season, as they sport a woeful 4-17 record.
