After 55 years, Brooklyn’s in the house! Nets beat Raptors 107-100 in season opener at Barclays
The chant was 55 years in the making, delayed a couple days by disaster, and delivered by a sold-out crowd that wasn’t missing this party no matter what it took to get there.
Those were the lyrics of a rocking return to major pro sports.
“That gave me jitters, man. Chills,” guard Joe Johnson said. “I know that these fans want the best for this team. All they want from us is to work hard and give them a show.”
Brook Lopez scored 27 points, Deron Williams added 19 points and nine assists, and the Nets beat the Toronto Raptors 107-100 on Saturday night in the first game at Barclays Center.
