Jeff Hornacek on one of biggest differences on offense between last season and this season: "I think it's probably more ball movement and body movement. This group of guys, there are some really good guys who cut off the ball," he said, mentioning Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee and Tim Hardaway Jr. as strong cutters. "We're not standing around as much, having one guy just go to it. We have to be careful that, sometimes when KP gets the ball in there that we're not all just standing there, watching. We're trying to work on that of cutting from the weak side and keeping constant movement so teams can't double him."

Damyean Dotson had 23 points, 6 rebounds and three assists in the G League on Sunday for Westchester. He's back with the Knicks' big club on Monday for its game against the Clippers. It's a transition Dotson has made a few times this season, and it's one he takes seriously and uses to his advantage. If he's on the bench during a Knicks game, Dotson says he's focused on studying how Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee perform in the Knicks' offensive and defensive schemes. He then applies that to his games in Westchester, which he says has helped his development significantly. Dotson's professional approach to his D League appearances is one of the reasons why Knicks coaches and management are excited about the second-round pick. Also, no matter if he's with the Knicks' NBA team or the G League club, Dotson has the same pre-game routine: praying for the health of all players involved, and praying for a victory.
