The Brooklyn Nets will play their first (unofficial) game at the $1 billion Barclays Center on Monday night against the Washington Wizards.

The Nets are coming off a 108-105 overtime victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in their preseason opener on Saturday night in Atlantic City, N.J.

Brook Lopez and C.J. Watson both had a team-high 19 points. Lopez added nine rebounds and three blocks. In their first game as backcourt mates, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson combined for 27 points and nine assists.

The Nets officially open their first regular season in Brooklyn on Nov. 1 at the Barclays Center against the rival New York Knicks.

Monday's game tips off a stretch of four preseason games in five days for the Nets.

The Nets practiced on the Barclays Center floor for the first time last Sunday.
