This was a perfect loss for the tanking Knicks. Young players like Emmanuel Mudiay, Trey Burke and Frank Ntilikina got plenty of minutes (all played at least 24) and the Knicks competed for most of the night but ended up with a loss.

On how things played out with New York, Al Horford said of Joakim Noah, a life-long Knicks fan: "It's hard. Because ever since I've met him I've always known him wanting to be a Knick, be here in New York. And I feel like he really, he's an example of what New York is. He really embraces that and it was just tough for him not be able to play to his potential here and do the things that he wanted to do." Horford and Noah were teammates at Florida.

Al Horford believes his ex-Florida teammate Joakim Noah can help a playoff team: "He's just about the right things. He's the kind of guy you want around. I feel like he can help any team." Noah is not with the Knicks as the club and player try to figure out a way to get him off of the roster. It's difficult because Noah is owed $38 million over the next two seasons. He's away from the team after a heated argument with coach Jeff Hornacek.

Clint Frazier firmly told reporters his "eyes are set on opening day. I'm here to want a spot ... in my mind, I'm breaking (spring) with the team. That's my goal, and that's the vision I have for myself." He isn't worried how the stacked OF competition will shake out. "I've been up (on MLB club) before, and I know people know I can play up there."

Following the Yankees' 4-1 win over the Pirates, Clint Frazier and Aaron Boone spoke about the 2nd-inning fly ball Frazier drifted on, then leapt for and caught on the warning track. Boone, smirking: "I was thinking, ‘Get back there, man. Get behind that thing a little bit.'" Frazier said the wind carried the ball today. "I've just got to make it look a little easier from here on out. That way I can have some people trust in me when the ball's hit to me."
