Brooklyn Nets Season Opener vs. New York Knicks Postponed Due to Hurricane Sandy

by October 31, 2012

Welp … so much for the optimism earlier that the Knicks/Nets season opener would take place as scheduled tonight in Brooklyn. The game has been postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. Per ESPN: “At this point, a makeup date has not been announced. The NBA announced on Tuesday that the game would take place as scheduled. But shutdowns of mass transit due to the hurricane would’ve caused significant problems for fans trying to attend the game. Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald said he spoke to NBA executive Stu Jackson, who confirmed that Thursday’s game will be postponed. Grunwald said he has been told that Friday’s game against Miami at Madison Square Garden is still on. ‘We’re good to go,’ he said.”
