Spike Lee and Brook Lopez exchange pleasantries before play resumes.
It took an entire quarter, but the Nets are finally pounding the ball inside.
Now Mirza was guarding J.R. Smith. Those matchups will not end well for the Nets.
Nets have Mirza guarding TIm Hardaway, Jr. That simply isn't going to work.
Amare's coming back in, so it looks like he's OK.
Jamie Foxx among the faces in the crowd tonight. Wendy Williams also sitting court side, a few seats away from Spike Lee.
Something happened to Amar'e on that blocked shot. He's limping coming off the floor.
Carmelo Anthony just threw that up trying to get a foul and it went in. Ugly start for the Nets. Trail 30-15.
Jamie Foxx is here in Jay-Z's seats tonight.
Even Mr. Whammy can't faze Bargs.
Andrea Bargnani must really want Mike Woodson to keep his job.
The Knicks are 10-for-12. Nets are 5-for-17. Knicks lead by 12.
This is a Knicks crowd in Brooklyn, and they're outworking the Nets. Rock bottom, amazingly, continues to get lower.
The Nets continue to be unbelievably bad guarding the 3-pointer.
The Knicks are leading 17-8 and Carmelo Anthony has barely touched the ball, and has no shot attempts.
Two fouls for Iman Shumpert, who is the only real option the Knicks have for Joe Johnson.
Andrea Bargnani drives by Garnett for the slam. Already has four points and a block.
Paul Pierce is here on the bench. Usually doesn't sit on the bench during games he doesn't play in.
Andrea Bargnani blocks Brook's shot on first possession.
One reason to watch this game? Joey Crawford is working it. There will surely be fireworks. Another? Barkley is doing commentary on TNT.
Lots of boos for Jason Kidd when he's introduced, though hard to say if they are from Knicks fans or both teams. Split crowd tonight.
Boos for Jason Kidd during intros. This is going to be a wild atmosphere.
Nets getting booed at intros, nobody harder than Jason Kidd.
Pregame films on scoreboards at sporting events are great for fans. But they make everything seem as dramatic as invasion of Normandy
Nets intro video malfunctioned at the start, like their season.
Nets have a sound system malfunction during their introductions. That pretty much sums their season up.
Spike Lee is here, rocking a Clyde Frazier jersey. http://t.co/OzOqo5d5wm
Nets honor Nelson Mandela before tonight's game.
The Nets actually named a Player of the Month. It's Joe Johnson.
Which is the worst game tonight: Knicks-Nets or Jaguars-Texans? To be clear, not sure there is a right answer either way.
There's still time for me to leave and not actually sit through this game. Should I?
Mike Woodson said he was surprised that Jason Kidd retired. "Absolutely, I thought he was coming back."
Kidd on losing: "Any coach hates to lose. Everybody is a competitor ... You want to win."
Kidd: "Yes, we'd like to get off to a better start, but our record is what it is."
Kidd on coaching: "I'm learning, but I have a great group of guys in that locker room who have knowledge and make it easy on myself."
Kidd says they're maybe closer than public thinks. Says it comes down to making two more stops a quarter.
Kidd on surviving injuries: "We all feel confident we have enough to win. This team was built with depth."
Kidd says he isn't looking at standings. Says if you do that, lulls you into a false sense of security that you have time to fix things.
Kidd: "I think it's still a big game. You have Brooklyn and New York, you have two teams who think they are going to make the playoffs."
Kidd says same starters tonight.
Kidd on Melo: "He's one of the best in the world, so we have to make it tough on him."
Shaun Livingston made today's first guarantee: the Nets will actually get healthy at some point this season. "We are," he said with a laugh.

Somebody set up a fake Lawrence Frank account and is writing his fake daily reports @lfrankdaily
Happy things work out for Jameis Winston.
Gotta think editors at Minnesota papers and TV stations were just giddy about the money they spent sending workers to Mexico for Spurs game
