Knicks vs. Nets Prediction & Pick

Nets fans got their first taste of Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson on Saturday. The two return players in the Kevin Durant trade combined for 35 points (12-of-31 shooting), 13 rebounds and 4 assists. Up next in their introduction to Brooklyn is taking part in the rivalry known as the Battle of New York.
