They still have one of the league’s worst records, but the Knicks got a much-needed morale boost last night by demolishing their intra-city rivals, the Brooklyn Nets, 113-83. The Knicks ran up the score early, and passions were running high: Iman Shumpert and Andray Blatche had to be separated, Andrea Bargnani and Kevin Garnett scuffled, and Bargnani was later thrown out of the game for trash-talking Garnett (poor Kevin!). “I don’t understand Italian,” Garnett told reporters after the game. “I wasn’t speaking Italian,” Bargnani says.
