Both teams played in the playoffs last year but didn’t achieve their goals, so we can expect them to be very hungry this season.

In addition to that, we will also be able to see future Hall of Famer and NBA legend Kevin Garnett play for the Nets. There are also some international players on both teams. Read More >>
