It's easy to see why the Knicks are 3-13 over their last 16 games. They turned the ball over seven times and shot just 38.9 percent in the first quarter. And that's why they're down 34-22 to the Pacers at the end of the first quarter.

Knicks remain at No. 26 in Power Rankings

Marc Stein feels bad for Carmelo Anthony. He's still a top-20 scorer in the league and is capable of doing great things, but still is an All-Star long-shot. Worse yet, he's had to play without Kristaps Porzingis. Week 14 Power Rankings

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

The NBA's Last Two Minute Report states that Eric Bledsoe did not foul Derrick Rose on late drive. Jeff Hornacek said there was body contact but the L2M states that the Suns point guard "maintains legal guarding position and makes incidental contact with Rose (NYK) that does not affect his drive to the basket and shot attempt."

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

When games are within 5 points in the last 5 minutes (including OT), Carmelo Anthony is shooting 31.3% (15-of-48), the 3rd-lowest field goal percentage among players with at least 30 attempts according to ESPN Stats and Info. Derrick Rose is shooting 44.4% (20-of-45) and Kristaps Porzingis is making 39.4% (13-of-33). "It's keeping the belief in and the faith in ourselves and one another to know that when we lose (on) one or two plays you can't fault the effort," Anthony said of losing in close games. "The effort is there. There's something that's not going our way. We're not doing the small things... When you're losing games you have to work that much harder to make sure those things don't happen."
