Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis say that the Knicks have incorporated pick and roll into their transition/early offense. That seems like it will be an opportunity for Rose and Brandon Jennings can create off the dribble before settling into the triangle offense.

Joakim Noah finds a trailing Kristaps Porzingis for an open 3-pointer, which Jeff Hornacek notes was taken from '4-5 feet' behind the line.

In addition to playing at a quicker pace, the Knicks may use more pick and roll this season. Derrick Rose confirmed that they've been running pick 'a lot' of pick-and-roll thus far in training camp. It seems like this will emerge mostly early in the offense. The club will use the triangle in half court.

Good sign for team chemistry? Jeff Horancek and the Knicks wrapped up lunch yesterday at 1 pm and "the guys were still sitting there, talking to eachother until 2:30, a quarter to 3. We had to turnaround at 4:30 and have another praictce. So I think these guys really like each other."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Late in close games, Derrick Rose expects the Knicks to use a pick-and-roll to get a shot. "I don't think it's going to be the triangle. I think it's probably going to be 1-3 pick-and-roll or 3-1 pick-and-roll. Either me or Melo will have to create for someone to take the shot."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Derrick Rose said the triangle offense feels ‘foreign' thus far, but he's optimistic about it. "It's like 40 to 50 options on one side of the floor. It's like giving you your space for creativity. It's like if you're doing it the right way, you could do everything you want."

For those wondering if Jeff Hornacek pays attention to analytics: he said today that a 'big key' for the Knicks this season is their effective field-goal percentage. Last year, New York ranked 28th in effective field goal percentage, which is a field goal percentage that adjusts for the value of 3-point shots.

Mike D'Antoni told NBA.com that Carmelo Anthony & Kobe Bryant didn't fully buy in to his offense, resisting the principles. "They did," the Rockets coach said. "And they were paid 20-something million dollars for it -- they were successful. So I don't blame them. Nothing's been proven up to that point."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Carmelo Anthony says the Knicks have been playing quicker in scrimmages so far in training camp with a focus on early offense. It's a development Anthony seemed to welcome. "It can make the game easier," he said. NY ranked in the bottom 10 in the NBA in pace the last 3 seasons, per NBA.com.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek wants to push the pace: "If we can get 5, 6 easy buckets a game just by pushing the ball, that's a big advantage." NYK ranked 30th in fast-break points/game (8) last year, per NBA.com. For what it's worth, 12 fast-break points/game would put a team in the middle of the pack last year.
