New York Knicks power forward Andrea Bargnani let Atlanta Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll blow right by him for an easy bucket on Wednesday. What's funnier is that he blamed J.R. Smith for the defensive lapse.

Neither Bargnani nor Smith got in Carroll's way, and Carroll picked up two easy points.

It has been a rough defensive season for Bargnani in his first year with the Knicks. Earlier this season he had an embarrassing defensive effort against the San Antonio Spurs.
