Tuesday night brought more NBA preseason action for fans to check out including the Brooklyn Nets taking on the New York Knicks. Both teams made some major changes in the offseason with the Nets trading several players over to the L.A. Lakers in exchange for D'Angelo Russell. The Knicks also dealt their All-Star Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Doug McDermott, Enes Kanter, and more. All of these players got some time on the court in their first preseason game ahead of the regular season. Here's the latest on how the Brooklyn Nets won 115-107 in New York behind Russell's scoring performance.

What's up next?

With the win, the Brooklyn Nets get a 1-0 start to their NBA preseason. Despite chatter from players here or there that they'll make the playoffs, it's not expected this team will do a whole lot this coming NBA season. Next up, they'll take on the Miami Heat in a home game on Thursday night at 7 p.m. Eastern Time.

NBATV will carry the live televised presentation.

The New York Knicks also have low expectations for the season ahead, due to being in a rebuilding mode. With Carmelo Anthony departed, the team is focused more on big man Kristaps Porzingis as the cornerstone of the franchise. The Knicks could somehow squeeze into the playoffs but it would be a surprise. Next up on their preseason schedule is an away game against the Washington Wizards on Friday at 7 p.m. Eastern Time.
