Hawks 108, Knicks 107: Interesting to see Derrick Rose take the final shot for the Knicks. Rose drove to the lane and was rejected by Paul Millsap. Carmelo Anthony got a good look off of a rebound but missed it. The bottom line? The Knicks have lost 11 of 13 and are six games below .500. This is not what Phil Jackson expected.

You can't really fault the Knicks much for how the last two possessions played out. They get a runner from Derrick Rose on one end and play strong defense for 23 seconds on the other end, but Dennis Schroeder knocks down a three.

It feels like the Knicks have run a variation of 'your turn, my turn' with Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony on offense in the past few minutes. It's mostly worked well, but doesn't feel sustainable. The game is tied at 105-105 with a minute to play.

Melo beats buzzer for second time (0:22)

Madison Square Garden can't get enough of Ron Baker, AKA Ron Burgundy. Baker and Mindaugas Kuzminskas, the two new Knicks starters, have combined for 26 points and six rebounds. They've also helped keep the Knicks within striking distance while Carmelo rests early in the fourth quarter.

Carmelo Anthony has 28 points on 9-for-13 shooting. In a development that may or may not be a coincidence, he is playing power forward. Anthony thrived at the position in 2012-2013 when Amar'e Stoudemire was injured. It should be noted that he also has five turnovers today.

Kuzminskas left bloody by inadvertent poke (0:39)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Derrick Rose just threw a beautiful pass to Mindaugas Kuzminskas that led to an open layup. Kuzminskas, beat everyone down the floor, has proved to be an adept cutter. Maybe Jeff Hornacek wanted to see more of that today when he decided to start Kuzminskas.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek's lineup changes have brought out the Knicks' scrappy side: Mindaugas Kuzminskas is playing with a laceration below his eye and Ron Baker took an inadvertent shot to the face. Both players remain on the court.

Melo beats the buzzer with tough 3 (0:33)

Quietly, Joakim Noah has put together a nice stretch for the Knicks lately (outside of the Toronto game Sunday). He's playing well again today thus far, with seven rebounds and two assists against Atlanta. Derrick Rose has five assists, a very strong number given how he's distributed the ball to this point.

Billy Wagner receives HoF votes

ESPN's 17 Hall of Fame voters cast their ballots, and Billy Wagner grabbed two votes. At 11.8 percent of the vote, he fell far short of the 75 percent threshold for entry. ESPN's HoF ballot

We're halfway through the season and the Knicks still seem to struggle in defending the pick and roll. Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Brandon Jennings miscommunicated and allowed a wide open 3-pointer. Atlanta has hit 45 percent of its threes thus far.
