Final Score: Knicks 113, Nets 83

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

STREAK'S OVER!!!!

THEY'RE FIXED! THE STREAK IS OVER AND THE KNICKS ARE GREAT NOW! BYAHHHHH CHAMPIONSHIP COMING!!!!!

But for real, that was fun. The Nets suck harder than a 90-foot remora and the Knicks fiiiiinally took advantage. Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton (and the whole crew, really) got hot from outside. Carmelo Anthony found some touch of his own, attacked the glass, and created beautifully out of double teams and in pick-and-rolls with Amar'e Stoudemire.

But yo, Andrea Bargnani. Bargnani didn't have the most impressive game of the bunch-- that honor probably goes to Shump-- but he did score 16 points on 13 shots and do these things:

1. Blow by Kevin Garnett for a big baseline dunk:

2. After getting in Garnett's face following a bit of loose-ball wrasslin', stick a three in Garnett's eye then get ejected for trash-talking even though there's no way Joey Crawford knew what he was saying:

FORGET EVERYTHING I SAID ABOUT THE KNICKS GIVING UP TOO MUCH TO GET BARGNANI GIVE THIS MAN A LIFETIME CONTRACT RETIRE HIS JERSEY AND RENAME THE ARENA MADISON SQUARE BARGNARDEN HE IS A KNICK HERO FOREVERRRRRRRRRRR

The Nets are exceptionally awful and I'm not inclined to believe a single thing has changed about the Knicks until they put together even a fraction of that production against a team that isn't totally ruined but YEAHHHHHHH KNICKS FOREVER WE'RE BACK Y'ALL!!!!!!

Recap in the morning!
