Though the NYPD, as noted in the tweet below, expected no road closures or traffic delays, it still wasn't smooth sailing.
I'm told--backed up by a few tweets--that the overlap between the ending of the first show and the beginning of the second led to some significant slowing of traffic and noise around the arena.
The photo at right, of northbound traffic on Dean Street at Sixth Avenue, was taken at about 10:50 pm.

Two shows at Barclays Center tonight. All of Brooklyn’s car traffic is in the neighborhood, sounding off. @KevinHart4real, you owe me a beer— Rob Weychert (@robweychert) July 10, 2015
