The Brooklyn Nets overcame huge scoring nights from Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler to take down the Knicks in the first chapter of what should be one of the best NBA rivalries.

Brooklyn outscored New York 12-5 in the overtime period to take a 96-89 decision, winning the first meeting between the two teams to be played in Brooklyn, and the first game since the Nets moved from New Jersey to the Empire State.

It was Brooklyn’s third straight win overall, while New York suffered its third loss in the last four games.

‘Melo had a game high 35 points (11-25 FGs) and a team best 13 rebounds, while Tyson Chandler had his best night as a Knick, making 12 of his 13 field goal attempts to finish with 28 points and ten boards. No other Knicks reached double figures in any category.

Brooke Lopez filled up the stat sheet to lead the Nets with 22 points, adding 11 rebounds. Deron Williams dished out 14 assists and scored 16. Gerald Wallace added 16 points and Reggie Evans grabbed 14 boards off the bench.

Each team moved to a record of 9-4 on the season and will play again Wednesday. New York will visit Milwaukee, Brooklyn plays in Boston.

Game notes: Jason Kidd did not play due to back spasms. Ronnie Brewer left in the second half with a dislocated finger.
