Knicks 103, Magic 98

New York Knicks 103 Final Recap | Box Score 98 Orlando Magic Andrea Bargnani, PF 28 MIN | 5-12 FG | 3-3 FT | 5 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 13 PTS | -6 If I didn’t know better, I’d swear Andrea Bargnani was created in some twisted, macabre, Island of Dr. Moreau-esque lab with the specific purpose of causing endless spats among Knicker-backers.
