New Jersey Nets Vs. New York Knicks: Nets Look For Revenge, First Three-Game Winning Streak In Two Years

The New Jersey Nets will look to avenge a November loss to the New York Knicks Saturday night when the two teams meet again, this time at the Prudential Center in Newark. 

While the Knicks have lost four of their last five, the Nets are in search of their first three-game winning streak since February of 2009.

The Nets were winners on Friday night thanks to just the second double-double of the season from Brook Lopez.  The center scored a game-high 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.  Devin Harris had 16 and Kris Humphries added 15 off the bench.

Meanwhile, New York is trying to recover from a 113-96 loss to the Los Angeles LakersKobe Bryant poured in 33 to lead the visitors, including 19 in the first quarter.  Amar'e Stoudemire scored 24 in defeat while Raymond Felton had 20 points and seven assists.

The last time these two teams met, big men dominated.  Lopez abused Timofey Mozgov for 36 points while Stoudemire led the blowout with 35.  This time around the Knicks will have to do it without Stoudemire, who is out with a right big toe injury.

The Nets are 13-13 at home while the Knicks are 12-14 on the road.

Up next for the Knicks will be the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday back at MSG while the Nets continue their time in Newark Monday night against the San Antonio Spurs.
