Video: Knicks RJ Barrett Guarantees A Win in Game 5


The New York Knicks may be down to their last gasp in their first-round series with the Atlanta Hawks, down 3-1, but don't tell that to guard RJ Barrett. He ripped into a reporter at today's media session, calling even the suggestion that Game 5 tonight might be the end of their season "a dumb a** question", and guaranteeing a win. 

This all comes a day after Hawks center Clint Capela's epic trash-talk rant, warning the Knicks they're coming to Madison Square Garden tonight to send them on vacation.

The Knicks were feisty on that front too. Julius Randle blew it off with a "why would I give a hell what Clint Capela has to say?", while Derrick Rose was even most honest: "I'm 32 years old. I've never talked sh** like that in my life, and I'm not gonna start now once Clint Capela starts talking crazy."

The Knicks hope their game speaks for itself on the court Wednesday night, if they're hoping to talk about a Game 6 afterwards.
