After a flurry of off-season transactions and a high-profile move from New Jersey, the Brooklyn Nets will finally make their debut on the court as they travel to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers who are 1-0 this pre-season.
The Nets re-signed Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams in the off-season before acquiring Joe Johnson from the Atlanta Hawks. Johnson will likely start alongside Williams in the back court.
The 1-0 New York Knicks will travel to Boston for their second pre-season game. New York defeated Washington 108-101 on Thursday after Steve Novak had a game-high 21 points by going 7-of-7 shooting from three-point territory. The Celtics are 1-1 in the pre-season.
