Last night was the Battle of New York as the New York Knicks faced the new look Brooklyn Nets in Brooklyn. New York was divided between the two teams but last night it was the New York Knicks who ruled the city for the night. The Knicks won 113-83.
During the Battle of New York, another battle took place between Brooklyn Nets forward, Kevin Garnett and New York Knicks forward, Andrea Bargnani. The battle started early on as Bargnani blew by an elderly KG for a big slam!
The battle didn’t heat up until the 4th quarter when the Knicks started to pull away. Both guys got tangled up and both coaches as well as players came to their teammates needs. Both players were given technical fouls and play continued.
Even though Bargnani and the Knicks won the game, KG definitely won the inner battle when Bargs hit a long 2 on Garnett and trashed talked his way down the court. The trash talking didn’t last long as everyone’s favorite official Joey Crawford called a technical which was Andrea’s second leading to an instant ejection from the game! With 3 more battles left it should be an interesting end to the war nonetheless!
