A heated intra-city rivalry plays out tonight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where James Harden and the Nets hope to continue their winning ways against Julius Randle and the New York Knicks. The Nets, short-handed and awaiting the arrival of Harden in a trade from the Rockets, drew first blood in their season series with the 'Bockers on Jan. 13, as Kevin Durant scored 28 points in a 116-109 win at Madison Square Garden.
