Samuel L. Jackson pokes fun at Knicks, Spike Lee during Oscars
Samuel L. Jackson delivered a message to New York Knicks fan Spike Lee at the Oscars on Sunday.
Lee, a world famous film director, producer and actor, is a huge Knicks fan.
While presenting an award, Jackson let Lee know New York won their first home game since December 1 after they beat the San Antonio Spurs 130-118 at Madison Square Garden.
"First of all, Spike, so glad you're sitting down," he said.
"After 18 consecutive home losses, the New York Knicks won tonight. I repeat, the New York Knicks won tonight, defeating San Antonio 130-118."
Lee then shouted back "we're trying to tank".
Lee went on to win the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
The Knicks have a chance to extend their home winning streak to two games against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday.
They will enter that matchup in last place of the Eastern Conference standings.
