Research Notes

  • J.R. Smith scored 19 points on 7-11 shooting off the bench Wednesday and the Knicks outscored the Nets by 24 points with him on the court. Entering Wednesday's game, the Knicks had a higher offensive efficiency this season with J.R. Smith off the court (115.7) than when he was on the court (107.6), but that was not the case Wednesday.

  • Carmelo Anthony scored at least 30 points against the Nets for the third time in three games this season and is averaging 37.0 points per game against his crosstown rival. Anthony is shooting a career-best 46.4 percent from at least 15 feet this season and has been over 50 percent from that distance against the Nets.
