A frustrated Carmelo Anthony said the New York Knicks failed to show fight in their 23-point loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Monday.

“That’s the only thing that kind of bothers me: Today we didn’t even fight. I felt like we didn’t fight as a team,” Anthony said after the Knicks’ 103-80 loss. “Them guys from the jump ball just came in and it felt like they owned us.”

The Knicks were embarrassed in Monday’s loss to their crosstown rivals, shooting just 34 percent from the field. They allowed the Nets to hit 49 percent of their shots.
