AROUND THE WEB:
• The Knicks won the battle for New York — also a matchup between the Atlantic Division’s bottom-feeders — on Thursday night, rolling to a 113-83 victory in Brooklyn in a game that showcased how bad the Nets are playing right now.
Kevin Garnett, who was the glue on defense for the Celtics the past few seasons, explained that there is some confusion among Nets players, especially after defense-minded assistant coach Lawrence Frank was demoted earlier in the week.
“Chemistry isn’t just snap, wave a magic wand and voila,” said Garnett, who was involved in a dust-up with Andrea Bargnani in the fourth quarter that led to the Knicks forward’s ejection. “We have a new system … changing the team on the fly.”
Jason Kidd admitted that the first month of his coaching tenure has not been memorable.
“The losses can sometimes take the fun away,” he said after his team fell to 5-14, only percentage points ahead of the 4-13 Knicks for last place in the Atlantic.
“I don’t think [any]body goes somewhere expecting to lose, but we’re going through it and I’m dealing with it,” Anthony said before Thursday’s game. “As far as me leaving and thinking about that, I’d be selfish to think about that at this point with us losing and going through the situation that we’re going through. I’d be selfish on my part, to my teammates and to the organization to even have that thought even coming across my mind.
“So, no, I’m not even thinking about that at this point.”
“If I’m healthy and the situation is right, I will be back playing,” Rose said Thursday about the possibility of returning for the playoffs. “If I’m healthy and my meniscus is fully healed, of course I’ll be out there playing. But if it’s something totally different and the outcome is not how I would want it to be, there’s no need.”
Rose also did not take kindly to a suggestion that the team move on from building around him, given that he just suffered his second major injury in three years.
“What can I say to that?” Rose responded, adding after a long pause: “You could be a fool if you want to. Dead serious. I know I’m going to be all right.”
• Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martinhad a second meeting with NFL special investigator Ted Wells on Thursday to discuss his alleged harsh treatment by teammates, according to an Associated Press report.
Wells is expected to have another meeting with some Dolphins players before filing his report.
Martin, who first was interviewed on Nov. 15 after leaving the team on Oct. 28, continues to stay with family in California while undergoing counseling for emotional issues. He was put on the reserve/non-football illness list by the Dolphins last week, ending his season.
Richie Incognito, who emerged as the main focus of the bullying accusations, remains suspended from the team.
Despite the turmoil that threatens to cost coach Joe Philbin his job, the Dolphins are 6-6 and challenging for a playoff berth headed into Sunday’s game at Pittsburgh.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “The second period was atrocious. It was unacceptable. There are no excuses about playing with five defensemen [following the first-period injury to Johnny Boychuck]. We have to look in the mirror.” – Bruins coach Claude Julien, on the Bruins’ performance in Thursday night’s 2-1 loss to the Canadiens
