This is a good opportunity for Mindaugas Kuzminskas to show what he can do in extended minutes. Tough start for both Kuzminskas and Billy Hernangomez on defense thus far; Knicks trail the Blazers, 10-4, and Portland has gotten easy looks after defensive miscues from both rookies.

Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Lance Thomas sitting tonight is not entirely surprising because the Knicks playing the second game of a back-to-back and out of the playoffs. So it makes sense that they'd rest these guys, particularly because losing games is beneficial for them at this point. Rose suffered a foot injury last night against Utah. Carmelo & Lance Thomas' injuries are new.

Carmelo Anthony agreed with Jeff Hornacek's admission that the Knicks should've committed to one offense and stuck with it. "Earlier we were playing faster, more free flow throughout the course of the game," he said in Utah, according to reports. "Then we kind of slowed down, started settling it down, not as fast, the pace slowed down for us as a team. It was something we had to make an adjustment on the fly in limited practice time. Once you get into the season it's hard to kind of readjust a whole system."

RB Donnel Pumphrey catches a pass as New York Jets running backs coach Stump Mitchell looks on at San Diego State's pro day Thursday. Pumphrey stood on his combine numbers. He did a nice job catching punts and going through bag drills. The FBS all-time leading rusher with 6,405 yards, Pumphrey understands he'll have to make it as pass-catching back and returner at the next level.

Since the Yankees have three off days in the first 2 weeks of the year, they could wait until April 17th, the 13th game of the season, before using a fifth starter. Jordan Montgomery, a rookie lefty, continues to come around the outside to possibly be that man.
