The New York Knicks handled the Detroit Pistons last night 99-85. J.R. Smith made the boring game interesting with a free throw air ball that his teammates laughed at, and a little scrimmage with kids during half time. You just never know what you're going to get with this guy, other than 16 points per game. Videos are below for a good laugh.

BEST OF MAXIM
Why in the blue hell would the Knicks of all teams think other teams would be afraid of them? They aren’t the Miami Heat, no one fear the Knicks.
They don’t have the type of resume to admire their work in the mirror. They are having a good season, but they have to understand if they continue to think they are better than they are, their playoff stay will be the same as previous...
Last night the New York Knicks hosted the Detroit Pistons, winning the game 99-85. The interesting moment of the game came from Smith, however. Leave it to Smith to make a boring game interesting.
He kept the crowd and his team entertained after shooting an air ball during a free throw attempt. Then Smith tried to crash a scrimmage game against some kids during halftime.
JR Smith’s shooting is generally considered to be a strength in his game, but it was the source of embarrassment on Monday.
Smith shot 5-for-15 from the field and went 1-of-2 at the free throw line in the New York Knicks’ 99-85 win over the Detroit Pistons. A career 74.5 percent shooter from the line, Smith had 16 points which is right on his season average, but he airballed...

Big kid himself, J.R. Smith, tried to get in on the pee-wee halftime action during halftime of Monday night’s blowout to the Pistons:

PARTY IN THE BACK
Prior to this week, Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith had been growing out his hair for a very long time. As you can see from the photo above on the left, he had one of the raddest hairstyles in the NHL for all of last season and into this year. Many fans will be disappointed to hear that Smith recently cut his hair — until they see his new haircut. The photo above on the right...
Nebraska is just 11-12 and 2-8 in the Big Ten conference this season. Still, if there’s one sentence that I’ve said in about every article since New Year’s, it’s that “winning on the road in the Big Ten isn’t easy”. The Buckeyes nearly fell into that trap with cold shooting and a lazy closeout as the Huskers got as close as five with just under three minutes remaining...
