According to the Orange County Register, Knicks team president Phil Jackson will be in Los Angeles on Friday, attending the unveiling of the Shaquille O'Neal statue at Staples Center. Also on Friday: the East Regional at MSG and the UCLA-Kentucky game in Memphis. Knicks GM Steve Mills, and not Jackson, will reportedly attend the game in Memphis.

Rick Carlisle on J.J. Barea's flagrant 2: "Watching [Blake] Griffin's cat-ate-the-canary smile tells you the story of that play. That's all you have to look at."

The Knicks lost for the 7th time in 8 games, but this may have been the first game they have actually tanked in the traditional sense. No Carmelo, Derrick Rose or Lance Thomas tonight. New York is tied with Sacramento for the 6th worst record in the NBA.

Knicks engineer an 8-0 run in the third quarter to cut Portland's lead to 13. Nice job by a lineup featuring Kyle O'Quinn, Justin Holiday and Rob Baker.

Wow. I hope the 'trade Carmelo' crowd watched the first half of Knicks-Blazers. New York, without Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose, is down 21 and has allowed 67 points.

Mavs 97, Clippers 95 (final). J.J. Redick jumper at the buzzer was long. Seth Curry (23 points, 4 assists) starred as Dallas' starting PG.
