NYC Sports Guide: Nets & Knicks vs. Heat

Welcome to the NYC Sports Guide. Not only do we cover the latest news related to New York sports, we fill you in on what’s happening around town during the big game. So whether you’re a die-hard local or a visiting sports fan, we’re here to help you create the ultimate game-day experience in the Big Apple.

This winter, a heat wave from South Beach hits New York City.

The red-hot Miami Heat play the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, Jan. 10 (7:30 p.m.) at Barclays Center and the New York Knicks on Sunday, Jan. 12 (3:30 p.m.) at Madison Square Garden.

Miami has been one of the NBA’s biggest surprises this season with a 23-8 record as of the end of 2019, so you can expect to see basketball fans sporting Heat gear around Downtown Brooklyn and Midtown Manhattan very soon.

Buy Heat vs. Nets Tickets Here

The Heat wasn’t expected to be this good this soon due to how young most of its core players are, but the addition of four-time all-star Jimmy Butler this past summer and reliability of veteran point guard Goran Dragić have helped the franchise’s youth movement develop ahead of schedule.

Six Heat players are averaging 10 or more points per game, including the aforementioned Butler (20.4), Dragić (15.9), 20-year-old rookie shooting guard Tyler Herro (13.9) and 22-year-old center and Newark native Bam Adebayo (15.8).

Heat fans haven’t been this excited since their team was a perennial NBA Finals contender led by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh a half-decade ago.

For out-of-town Heat diehards who’ll be touring the city during the team’s Big Apple visit, here’s a list of sports bars/restaurants around Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center to hang out at before, during and after the games against the Nets and Knicks on Jan. 10 and 12, respectively:

Brooklyn, New York

200 Fifth
200 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn

If you’re searching for some classic game-time grub, look no further than 200 Fifth. Chicken wings are served in a variety of flavors, like sweet chili, Jamaican jerk, traditional buffalo, drunken (lager and cayenne) or their signature sweet and sour. The bar has over 100 televisions for your sports-viewing pleasure and closes at 2 a.m. on Fridays.

The Montrose 
47 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn

Hungry for some homemade pub food? The Montrose serves up the half-pound Brooklyn Breakfast Burger (an angus beef burger stuffed with mac and cheese and a fried egg), as well as jalapeño mac and cheese with bacon. It’s open from 4:30 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Kick Axe Throwing
622 Degraw Street, Brooklyn

Kick Axe Throwing offers beer, malt beverages, wine, snacks and Table 87 coal-oven pizza – but it’s not a sports bar. There are no televisions on site. None. But, as a member of a party or simply as a walk-in, you can, as its website states, play darts with axes. To be exact, you’re paying for the thrill of throwing hatchets at a (bullseye) target. Kick Axe Throwing typically opens at noon on Fridays (closes at 1:30 a.m.), and there are also locations in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

40/40 Club by Tanduay Rum

If you’re not actually going to the game but still want to enjoy the atmosphere at Barclays Center and watch Nets vs. Heat on television on Jan. 10, 40/40 Club by Tanduay Rum is the place.

Teofimo Lopez

Press Play: Teofimo Lopez

As lightweight contender Teofimo Lopez approaches the ring at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, December 14, it’ll be the Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” blaring from the speakers.

As lightweight contender Teofimo Lopez approaches the ring at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Dec. 14, it’ll be the Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” blaring from the speakers.

Lopez (14-0, 11 KO), 22, wants to honor his borough with both the ’80s classic and a victory over IBF 135-pound world champion Richard Commey (29-2, 26 KO), a 32-year-old native of Ghana who resides in The Bronx.

“Last time I fought at The Garden, I came out to Frank Sinatra’s ‘New York, New York,'” Lopez, who’s making his first attempt to win a world title, told “My manager suggested the Beastie Boys for this match, so we’re going with that.

“I try to bring the atmosphere of New York, just to let them know that Brooklyn’s here,” he added. “Now we have a chance, an opportunity, to show out and let everyone know that we’re here to stay, and we’re here because we’re the truth.”

Lopez, the youngest of three born to Honduran immigrants, was introduced to boxing at age five.

The 5-foot-8 fighter made his professional debut at Las Vegas’ Thomas & Mack Center in November 2016, knocking out his opponent, Ishwar Siqueiros, with a left hook to the body in the second round.

In total, Lopez has 11 wins by KO. Commey, who also stands at 5-foot-8 and won the IBF title in February, has won 26 times in the same manner.

Given how often each have won by knockout, Lopez doesn’t expect Saturday’s showdown to last the scheduled 12 rounds.

"I try to bring the atmosphere of New York, just to let them know that Brooklyn’s here."

- Teofimo Lopez

“Fighting Richard Commey, obviously, he does have power in both hands, and so do I,” said Lopez, who represented Honduras in the 2016 Summer Olympics. “A lot of people are excited about it. It’s a fight that everybody knows is not gonna go the distance.

“I’m ready for it,” he added. 

That’s the kind of warning of violence that keeps Lopez’s mom from ever attending any of his fights. It’s also why he listens to ’90s hip hop to get “amped up” while training for such a battle.

Lopez shouts out DMX, Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G. and Big Pun as those who are amongst his favorite rappers of any era.

“You have the new generation of rappers, but it’ll never be like the ones from the old days,” he said.

On Saturday night, though, he’s going with the Beastie Boys in his homage to Brooklyn, to which he hopes to return with the IBF lightweight title around his waist.

“It’s just great to be back here, on my soil,” Lopez said. “I got family here, I got aunts here, my uncles are here. 

“Those are the things that we all work for when you’re in the sport, in any sport – turning your dreams into reality,” he continued. “I prepared myself for that, man.

“It’s honestly a blessing.”

Event note:  Lopez’s fight against Commey takes place before the main event: Terence Crawford (35-0, 26 KO) vs. Egidijus Kavaliauskas (21-0-1, 17 KO). Crawford, of Omaha, Nebraska, will be defending his WBO welterweight (147-pound) world title against the Lithuanian contender.
