180112-caris-levert

The Nets play their second game of the season against the NY Knicks. The Nets played the Knicks twice in the preseason, and now they meet for the first time in the regular season.

As the Nets come off of a tough loss against the Pistons, they came out on the court with a refreshed mindset. Quick on their feet, and controlling the paint, the Nets were off to a commanding start. Joe Harris went 1 for 7 from 3-point territory in his last game, but scored 2 quick treys in the first quarter as the Nets closed out the first quarter with a 9-point lead.

Caris LeVert, coming off of a solid opening game brought the same energy to game 2 by being aggressive on the court, but he quickly picked up a technical foul in the second quarter while the Knicks battled back into the game; the Nets take a 7 point lead to close the first half.
