NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have lost 9 straight, and Iman Shumpert may have guaranteed his trade when he and Carmelo Anthony got into a shouting match after a missed defensive assignment against the Pelicans.

Cameras caught Iman Shumpert and Carmelo Anthony screaming at each other on the bench following a timeout to discuss an open three for Ryan Andersen.

Shumpert says it was a simple miscommunication, and told the New York Post that he just wants to play.

A shouting match with Carmelo Anthony and rookie Tim Hardaway Jr.’s breakout game may have pushed Iman Shumpert closer to the door.

Hardaway is fighting for playing time with Shumpert, who got into a heated rant with Anthony on the Knicks bench during a third-quarter timeout. Anthony didn’t look at him as Shumpert raved. Shumpert, who was then benched for the fourth quarter of the 103-99 loss to the Pelicans, called his tiff with Anthony “a miscommunication’’ on defense.

“Of course I wanted to play,’’ Shumpert said. “Tim was making shots. J.R. [Smith] had it rolling. We were just trying to get a win.’’
