Nets-Knicks Preview

(AP) -- While the surging Brooklyn Nets are aiming for the playoffs on their side of the East River, the lowly New York Knicks are shooting for ping-pong balls over in Manhattan.

The Nets look to extend their season-best winning streak to five Wednesday night when they try to sweep the season series from the Knicks for the first time in eight years.

Brooklyn (33-40) is in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, leading Boston by one-half game, Indiana by 1 1/2 and Charlotte by two. The Nets are also within striking distance of seventh place, trailing Miami by just a half-game.
