Rose on Cavs rout: 'Thank God this is first game'

The Knicks' 117-88 loss to the Cavaliers in their season opener Tuesday was an ugly debut for the new-look Knicks, but coach Jeff Hornacek saw some positive moments for Derrick Rose.

Derrick Rose says he's still getting acclimated to the triangle at this point: "I got to find a way. There's no way around it. I got to find a way, and I'm going to find a way. That's what being great is all about."

The guard cutting to the corner is one aspect of the triangle that Derrick Rose says he needs to get acclimated to: "As the point guard, that's tough sometimes going all the way to the corner and kind of waiting to see what they're going to do on the initial side of the triangle. You have to wait for the ball to come back to you."

Joakim Noah says the Knicks "have to get better in every aspect of our defense. One-on-one coverage, talking, just game plan, everything." They allowed Cleveland to hit 48% of its shots and struggled particularly in the 3rd quarter, when the Cavs reeled off a 19-4 run.

Derrick Rose says he's still getting used to the triangle portion of the offense at this point and is used to running more pick and roll. Sounds like it will take some time for Rose to adjust to the triangle aspects that are used in the Knicks half-court sets.

Joakim Noah wasn't very expansive on why he was shooting free throws at the start of Cleveland's ring ceremony: "I was warming up," he said, flatly.

Derrick Rose after NYK's 29-point loss: "Thank God it's the first game. We have a lot of room to improve." He said the Knicks failed to communicate on defense.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek wasn't happy with the Knicks' effort on defense. "We have to stop the guy with the ball and be more aggressive." He noted that the Knicks committed just one foul during the Cavs' pivotal run in the third quarter.

Stephen A. says Knicks 'ill-equipped' to deal with Cavs (2:03)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek noted that the Knicks were "a little unsettled" on offense, which is to be expected if this was the first night the club's starting five played together. The Knicks probably lose this game 9 out 10 times but you have to think the offense looks better if Noah and Rose were available the entire preseason.
