Melo beats the buzzer with tough 3 (0:33)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Quietly, Joakim Noah has put together a nice stretch for the Knicks lately (outside of the Toronto game Sunday). He's playing well again today thus far, with seven rebounds and two assists against Atlanta. Derrick Rose has five assists, a very strong number given how he's distributed the ball to this point.

We're halfway through the season and the Knicks still seem to struggle in defending the pick and roll. Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Brandon Jennings miscommunicated and allowed a wide open 3-pointer. Atlanta has hit 45 percent of its threes thus far.

So far, the Knicks starting lineup has played pretty well on offense. They've hit 53 percent of their shots and are down just one to Atlanta. It will be interesting to see how Courtney Lee's move to the bench impacts the second unit.

It's a bit surprising to me that Courtney Lee was removed from the starting lineup. The biggest issue with the starters was consistent effort on defense and that didn't seem to be a problem for Lee. I'm interested to hear Jeff Hornacek's reasoning on this after the game.

Regarding the starting lineup, Jeff Hornacek said he planned to start Kristaps Porzingis at C today if he was healthy, with Carmelo at power forward. That would have moved Joakim Noah, presumably, to the bench. Porzingis is out with a sore left Achillies so Noah is starting.

Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Ron Baker are starting for the Knicks today, alongside Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah.

The Knicks say Kristaps Porzingis (sore left Achillies) is out today.

Two different Knicks teams in second half

On Sunday, the Knicks followed an eight-point third quarter with 39 points in the fourth. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, it was the second time in Knicks history that they scored 30 more points in one quarter than in the previous one. The only other time was in 1956.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek reiterates that he may make a lineup change today.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Knicks say that Kristaps Porzingis' availability is still to be determined. He's officially listed as questionable (sore left Achillies).

Knicks' L. Thomas suffers fractured orbital bone

Lance Thomas suffered a fractured orbital bone and has concussion-like symptoms as a result of an inadvertent elbow from Jonas Valanciunas in the Knicks' loss to the Raptors on Sunday.

ESPN sources say Lance Thomas has suffered a fracture to a bone in his cheek. The timetable for his return is unclear.

MSG Network and ESPN's Mike Breen sums things up for the Knicks: "There have been a number of candidates for worse loss of the season and this is one of them." NYK was down by 34 to Toronto in the second half and ended up losing by 15. They have just two wins in their last 12 games and flat-out failed to give effort today on defense against Toronto.
