Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Nets vs Knicks

Rival Team: New York Knicks

The Battle of the Boroughs between the Nets and Knicks stems from the two teams proximity and is one of only two in town rivalries in the NBA. The Nets moved to Brooklyn in 2012 has only added heat to the already fairly intense rivalry between the teams as the Nets have moved even closer to Knicks turf after having played in New Jersey for their first 36 NBA seasons. There is always quite a bit of trash talking between these two teams, so you’ll be in for a treat when attending a game between these two Big Apple teams.

Nets vs Raptors

Rival Team: Toronto Raptors

The Nets-Raptors rivalry dates back to 2004 when the Raptors traded Vince Carter to the Nets. Since then these two Atlantic Division teams have met in the playoffs several times, with their most recent contest in 2014 going to seven games. Things are usually pretty tense when these two get together, so don’t miss it when the Raptors come to town.
