The Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks slugged it out Monday afternoon in their fourth of what turned out to be four enthralling crosstown rivalry games in the first season of the Nets’ residence in the outerborough.
They split the season series after the Nets won at MSG this afternoon, 88-85, but the action didn’t really get going until after the game ended. Nets forward/noted Kim Kardashian ex Kris Humphries was pretty juiced after his team’s win, noticing how quiet the Garden was after they handed the Knicks the loss.
Big game tonight!The Garden got really quiet on the way out!#Brooklyn

But Humphries didn’t count on J.R. Smith being just as roguish on the interwebz as he is on the court. Much like his game, his ensuing tweet was reckless, risky and sure as hell fun to see unfold.

Hit ‘em where it hurts, J.R. You didn’t win the game, but you sure won the aftermath.
