Oh KG. Expect a one game suspension. Credit to Baron Davis for playing peacemaker. Not sure what he said, but it was probably something along the lines of "Come on KG. It's Christmas man. Chill." Garnett HATES to lose. I don't think anyone could ever make him less competitive.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO BRAWL
The Big Ticket missed the last shot that would have tied the game, and took out his frustrations on the Knicks' Bill Walker before the two had to be separated.
This will probably cost both guys some money, but I don't think there'll be a suspension.
(A) KG's got to keep a cooler head. I know he's pissed he just missed a game-tying jumper... but you can't risk a suspension... especially with Pierce being hurt.

Point guard Baron Davis officially signed his free agent contract with the New York Knicks on Monday, but it's unclear when he will get on the court.
In case you missed it, after Kevin Garnett missed a jumper at the buzzer, he then decided to use his Jedi Force push on Bill Walker‘s neck, cuffing the former Celtic and throwing him out of his face. When asked about it after the game, Garnett scoffed, “Next question,” but Walker had more to say. [...]
Sources report that the Knicks have claimed 23-year-old Harvard graduate Jeremy Lin off waivers. New York badly needed to add some guard depth after the Christmas Day injury to rookie Iman Shumpert. Baron Davis is likely out until February and old-as-stone Mike Bibby is also nursing his usual aches and pains.
Lin doesn't have terrific career stats in his short time in the NBA...
From Jim Cleamons, Foots Walker and (briefly) Walt Frazier, to Mo Williams, Baron Davis and, now, Kyrie Irving, the point-guard position always has been a key for the Cavaliers.
