November 1st, 2012, at 7 pm, is not just the first night that the Brooklyn Nets will play a meaningful (i.e. an actual game that counts) game on their home floor, but it will also be their first game against your New York Knicks!
Well, after a 66-game season, we are now back on to an 82-game track. The Knicks will kick-off their season on November 1, by visiting the Brooklyn Nets, then host the Miami Heat the following night. Below are some tidbits from their schedule:
