The New York Knicks were without Carmelo Anthony Thursday night meaning that someone--or ones--had to step up if the Knicks were going to be able to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder.
J.R. Smith certainly did his best with 36 points for the Knicks; Amar'e Stoudemire added 16 to go with 8 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as the Knick lost this one 94-95. However, even thought he won, thanks to the hit he took on this dunk by Stoudemire Serge Ibaka might feel like he lost.
In the process of taking his jock and his pride Stoudemire gave Ibaka a hard elbow to the face on his way up. Afterwards Serge showed off where he must have bitten his tongue in the process.
