Knicks’ old misfits finding a home as Nets’ reinforcements

When coach Lionel Hollins was asked Sunday how he planned to wring better production out of his struggling bench, he replied: “Just hope they play better.” Brooklyn’s backups did just that in a 111-101 win over Boston, with Shane Larkin and Andrea Bargnani leading the way.

Andrea Bargnani talks career and his future after best game as a Net

Andrea Bargnani played his best game as a Net Wednesday night. In 17 minutes, he recorded eight points on 3-of-7 shooting, two rebounds, a block and (wait for it), his first assist of the season after more than 100 minutes of playing time.  He finished second in +/- with a +16, behind only Shane Larkin's +24. It's not what we had hoped for. Bargnani has been healthy all season, but his shot selection and poor defense has not instilled a lot of confidence in Lionel Hollins. It's all gotten him his share of derision. He's playing a career-low 14 minutes per game. Was last night the...

Lionel Hollins on Andrea Bargnani: "His past? I don't care."

In interviews with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Italy's leading sports publication, this week, both Lionel Hollins and Andrea Bargnani dismissed the importance of the center's history with the Nets cross-river rivals. "His past? I don't care. Not interested in the opinion of other coaches," said Hollins in a clear reference to Phil Jackson's description of Bargnani as a "malingerer" and a "tease.". "To me, it's just what Bargnani can give me. He was available and we took a chance: a very good chance." Hollins added that Bargnani can shoot, pass and dribble and play in the post, calling him "a...

Andrea Bargnani in a nutshell: scoring ability, hilarious blooper

Andrea Bargnani may have missed the entire preseason, but he was clearly available for Wednesday’s regular-season opening loss to the Bulls. Bargnani played 22 minutes in Brooklyn’s 115-100 defeat, finishing with 17 points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block coming off the bench. “Obviously I was very upset about not playing during the preseason,...
