If you thought the friendly beef between Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson and New York Knicks forward Steve Novak is over, you’re wrong. As you may know, Robinson and Novak have been going back and forth with trash talk — or flirting — throughout much of the season. Robinson kept it going on Thursday night when he dropped the Discount Double Check on Novak once again during the Knicks’ win over the Bulls. For those of you are are keeping score, Robinson clearly won this battle. He dropped 35 points on New York and shot 5-for-11 from beyond the arc. Novak did not score in the game and missed the only three-pointer he attempted. Simply put, Novak had no reason to even consider doing the title belt celebration that he adopted last season. Robinson has gotten better for Chicago as the season progresses. He is averaging 20.5 points per game in the month of April after averaging 16.1 in March — both significantly higher than his season average of 13.2. Earlier this year when he mocked Novak’s Discount Double Check celebration, Novak responded by calling Robinson “Little Nathan.” Shortly after that, Robinson gave Novak a shout-out on NBA TV. Given the way the stat lines turned out on Thursday, it would probably be best for Novak to just let this one slide.
