Tim Hardaway Jr. was asked if he just felt out of rhythm on Saturday when he missed 12 of 16 shots in a loss to Detroit: "Yeah I missed a couple of easy ones here and there, shots that I normally make. It's just tough to see those not go down," Hardaway Jr. said. "My teammates did a great job of just keeping me in it. Telling me to keep shooting. That's what I'm here for, just be a burst of energy and help out on the floor in any way I can. I didn't get it done tonight." The Knicks as a whole hit just eight of 30 3-point attempts. Jeff Hornacek said the Knicks need to be around 38 percent from three. He didn't place the blame on Hardaway Jr., who said he got the looks he wanted against Detroit. "Yeah. Transition shots, I just have to find ways. It's still a new offense but at the same time I still have to find ways to get to the line, get to the basket a little more, finish when I'm there. Missed a lot of bunnies today I wish I could take back and I definitely could have helped out on that end of the floor."
