The New York derby has been a well anticipated game, and we've had to wait longer that we thought, with hurricane Sandy delaying play for a few weeks. However, last night basketball fans in New York City got to see the historic New York Knicks, go up against the newly rooted Brooklyn Nets. 

The game went into overtime, with the Nets finally coming out on top with a 96 - 89 win over the Knickerbockers. 

Derron Williams was always going to be a key player for the new Brooklyn franchise, and he turned up the Heat last night to put away a double-double of 16 points and 14 assists.  Interestingly, Williams had the same amount of assists as the whole Knicks team put together. 

Brook Lopez blocked 5 shots in the game and had 11 rebounds to go with 22 points. Reggie Evans, a monster on the boards, grabbed 14 rebounds in just 18 minutes of playing time. 

On the Knicks side, Jason Kidd sat out the game with back spasms, although his stat lines of late say that he wasn't really missed by the Knicks. Carmelo Anthony had 35 points, although he missed the shot that might have given New York the win, instead sending them into overtime. Tyson Chandler also had a good shooting night, with 28 points on 12 of 13.  Carmelo's points, plus Chandler's accounted for over half of the entire teams points, and together they had 13 offensive rebounds.

It was a great night for Brooklyn, in front of their part-owner Jay-Z and playing to a hyped home crowd.
