Brooklyn Nets Schedule
If your travel dates overlap with any month between October and April, you’re in luck. It means that you have the opportunity to see the Brooklyn Nets live at the Barclays Center. If they make the playoffs and go far, their season could be extended all the way until June. It would be really great if you could experience one of the best things to do in Brooklyn. There are several games throughout each month that are carried out in New York. The Brooklyn Nets schedule has a bunch of home games out of the 82 games throughout the season.
The NBA and the Coronavirus 2020
Coronavirus is sweeping the world and has taken everyone by surprise. Large gatherings in all parts of the world had been banned and unfortunately professional sports lie within that category. The virus that causes COVID-19 has put the world on pause. The NBA initially decided to postpone the 2019-2020 season. The postponement is still in effect and the rest of the season is in jeopardy. The NBA draft is also supposed to be held in June, but that looks like it will be either pushed back or canceled as well.
The postponement of the season started when Rudy Golbert of the Utah Jazz became the first player in the NBA to test positive for COVID-19 and his teammate, Donovan Mitchell also tested positive a couple of days later. As days went by, a few more players throughout the league, including the Brooklyn Nets, tested positive, even though the majority of them were asymptomatic. It might not be until the fall or winter of 2020 where we’ll get to see the Nets play again.
Brooklyn Nets Tickets & Best Seats

About Barclays Center
The Brooklyn Nets play at the beautiful Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which can accommodate 18,000 screaming fans. Barclays Center was constructed just for this team where they were previously called The New Jersey Nets and played in East Rutherford, NJ. Jay-Z, one of the most iconic artists of our generation helped bring the Nets to Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Nets have great fans and the atmosphere at the games is electrifying. You should go to a game just to experience this incredible level of energy – you won’t regret it!
How to get there & when to arrive
Barclays Center is easily accessible by the subway. Lines 2 3 4 5 B and Q stop right at the stadium and you can get there in less than 30 minutes from Midtown, Manhattan. The official name of the station is “Atlantic Av – Barclays Center”. You can’t miss it, especially on game-night where there will be huge crowds.
We recommend getting to the stadium one hour before the start of the game. This will allow you to avoid the long wait lines that generally form right before the game, plus you will have the opportunity to take a closer look at the arena and watch the teams warm-up. It is also a good idea to go buy some drinks and some food during this time so you don’t have to miss any of the actual game!
More about the Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets are currently on their fourth franchise name. The name changes were always the result of moving into different areas of the city. First, they were called the New Jersey Americans, then the New York Nets, subsequently the New Jersey Nets, and since 2012 they are known as the Brooklyn Nets. Their new home is the beautiful Barclays Center, opened by none other than Jay-Z (he is also one of the team owners). Moving the team to Brooklyn and building a new stadium was part of an initiative to restore Downtown Brooklyn into a lively and modern neighborhood. While this initiative met with skepticism early on, locals are now proud of their team.
History and Successes of the Brooklyn Nets
The Nets as an organization have been playing in the NBA since 1967 and have weathered a series of moves and name changes. Following a turbulent history, the team has significantly stabilized in the last few years and has been making a run at the play-offs. Even though they’re the newest team in NYC, and have to compete with the history of the New York Knicks, the Brooklyn Nets will surely make it a rivalry in the future.
I'm a true New York fan! Not only have I visited the city over 20 times but also have I spent several months here at a time. On this blog, I want to share everything I have learned and discovered, so you can have the best time in the greatest city in the world!
