The Knicks, under new coach, Derek Fisher, were blown out at home by the Chicago Bulls 104-80.
The Knicks are back in action tonight against the Cavs for LeBron James' first game back in Cleveland.
The Nets, meanwhile were crushed in Boston 121-105 in new coach Lionel Hollins' debut.
They play again Saturday in Detroit, before returning to Brooklyn for their home opener Monday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
