The Brooklyn Nets handed the New York Knicks their fourth straight loss in a 103-80 win at Madison Square Garden earlier today.
The Knicks had 11 turnovers in the first half and struggled offensively with the team a combined 11-33 from the field.
Joe Johnson and the Brooklyn Nets however showed no signs of jet lag from their recent trip to London and excelled.
Johnson had 20 first half points, shooting 3-5 from three point territory. Anthony did have 26 points for New York and the controversial J.R Smith chipped in with 15 but still they could not hope to catch the streaking Nets.
Andray Blache was the standout performer for Brooklyn in the second half as he managed 19 points and 12 rebounds. With the Nets dominating on both ends of the court, the Knicks at one managed to bring the score within eight points but in reality this contest was never very close.
Brooklyn further showed their strength in depth with every player who made it on to the court managing at least one basket.
The Nets welcomed back Deron Williams to the team and he managed 13 points and three assists in 27 minutes of play.
The Knicks now have a run of six teams with -.500 records and must put a win streak together in hope of making the playoffs.
Meanwhile Brooklyn will next host the Orlando Magic as they hope to continue their terrific start to 2014.
