The Nets will retain bragging rights over the Knicks for another year which unfortunately doesn’t mean as much as fans of New York City’s two NBA squads have underachieved this season.

The Knicks loss drops them into a tie for the worst record in the NBA which will help their chances in the lottery for the #1 draft pick in this June’s draft.
