The Brooklyn Nets close their preseason Friday night when they face the New York Knicks in Manhattan. Here’s how to watch the game and injury status reports.

The Brooklyn Nets on Friday night close their preseason slate the way they began it nine days ago — against the New York Knicks.

This is the third consecutive preseason in which the Nets and Knicks have met twice, after not playing at all in the preseason from 2013-16.

Brooklyn (1-2) comes in off their most lopsided preseason loss in six years. The Nets lost in Montreal to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday, 118-91, their worst preseason loss since a 115-85 loss to the Boston Celtics on Oct. 18, 2012.

New York (3-1) lost for the first time this preseason when they fell 110-98 to the Washington Wizards at Madison Square Garden on Monday night.

The Knicks swept the Nets last season and that 4-0 edge allowed New York to sneak past Brooklyn in the Eastern Conference standings by a single game. The Knicks were 29-53 a season ago, while the Nets finished 28-54.

New York also came out on top in their first meeting this preseason, a 107-102 victory over the Nets at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The Knicks made no major offseason additions, though they did draft Kevin Knox out of Kentucky with the ninth overall pick in the draft, and brought in free agent Mario Hezonja.

Their biggest change was on the bench, where David Fizdale — the former Memphis Grizzlies coach — takes over for Jeff Hornacek, who was fired at season’s end in April after going 60-104 in two seasons as the helm.

Fizdale got less than two seasons in Memphis, going 50-51. He was fired on Nov. 27 after 19 games and a 7-12 record.

The Grizzlies were 2-4 in postseason play under Fizdale, who spent 13 seasons as an NBA assistant, including eight with the Miami Heat, before landing a head coaching job.

Hollis-Jefferson was cleared to participate in his first full practice on Thursday after being limited and missing the first three postseason games with a strained left adductor.
