Knicks' J.R. Smith mentions Kanye West in Twitter jab at Kris Humphries

Following Monday afternoon's 88-85 win over the Knicks, Nets forward Kris Humphries took to his Twitter account to take a jab at the Knicks and the Garden faithful.

"Big game tonight! The Garden got really quiet on the way out! #Brooklyn," the New York Post quoted him as writing.

However, the power forward's comments did not go unnoticed. Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith, who finished with 16 points in 38 minutes but missed the game-tying trey as time expired, took offense to Humphries' comments and took his own shot at the Nets player.

"Wasn't quiet when Kanye tore it down last month!" Smith wrote in reply to Humphries' tweet.

Smith's tweet can only be in reference to Humphries' estranged wife Kim Kardashian, who is now dating Kanye West and is pregnant with the rapper's child.

West performed alongside Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and Billy Joel during last month's "12-12-12" Sandy-benefit concert.

Humphries and Kardashian are in a heated divorce battle as Humphries wants the reality star to admit that their 72-day marriage was "staged" and to give him a "public apology."

Sources have said that Humphries turned down a 7-million-dollar offer to "shut up and go away." (ANI)
