New York Teams

Jeff Hornacek, a baseball fan, says the Knicks' win against Sacramento was ugly but "it's a line drive in the scorebook, right?"

Knicks 106, Kings 98: New York nearly blew a 20-point third-quarter lead but hung on late thanks to a few big shots from Carmelo Anthony (20 points). Derrick Rose had another strong floor game (20 points on 16 shots). He and Brandon Jennings carried the Knicks for long stretches. The club is two games over .509 this late in the season for the first time since 2012-13.

Matt Barnes gets a "Derek Fisher! Derek Fisher!" chants from the fans at MSG. Tough crowd.

The Kings are playing Hack-a-Noah and it's worked. Joakim Noah has missed all four of his free throws, giving Sacramento a chance to eat into a 5-point lead. Fortunately for the Knicks and Noah, the Kings have come up empty on both trips, one of which ended with a Kristaps Porzingis block.

Carmelo Anthony hits a 3-pointer with three minutes to go to give the Knicks a much-needed 5-point cushion. Anthony's just 7-for-18 but has taken shots within the flow of the offense tonight, giving teammates like Derrick Rose (20 points) and Brandon Jennings (15 points) a chance to make an impact.

Joakim Noah seems to be doing a pretty good job of getting into DeMarcus Cousins' head. They ended the last possession in a bit of a shoving match and will probably be whistled for double technicals.

Steelers made Odell a non-factor (1:55)

The Kings ran off 16 unanswered points in the third quarter and Madison Square Garden is awfully quiet. Brandon Jennings may have stopped the free fall by drawing a foul on Willy Cauley-Stein on a 3-point attempt. He knocks down the free throws and then hits a jumper from the top of the key to give NY a 4-point cushion heading into the fourth.

The Giants first loss in almost two months didn't come without controversy. Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr. weren't happy after a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Steelers didn't play into Eli's hands

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Eli Manning was 8-of-9 with a TD when the Steelers blitzed on Sunday. But the Steelers relied more on a four-man pass rush. Manning was 16-of-30 with a TD and two INTs when the Steelers sent four or fewer.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

The Steelers were penalized 12 times for 115 yards. The Giants four times for 24. I'm not wasting much time listening to Giants complaints about officiating.

Kristaps Porzingis hits Willie Cayley-Stein with a crossover and finishes with a running layup. Good luck finding another 7-3 player on the planet who can do that. NY was up 20 but has struggled to get stops - something Jeff Hornacek has harped on - which allowed Sacramento to cut the lead to 7.
