Green wide open for 20-yard touchdown catch (0:16)

Kings coach Dave Joerger coached Mindaugas Kuzminskas seven years ago in Europe. He's a big fan of the Knicks forward's game. "He has an energy to him, which is a little Kirilenko-ish, where he's like a big cutter, offensive rebounder, runs the floor."

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Given the Yankees' current state, it always seemed hard to fathom they would be the winners in the Edwin Encarnacion sweepstakes. With Carlos Beltran headed to Houston, Matt Holliday on a one-year deal makes sense. Holliday will DH and provide outfield depth.

Joakim Noah will start at center tonight vs. Sacramento.

Arron Afflalo's thoughts on the Knicks' offense: "I'm pretty sure Jeff (Hornacek) has his guys just pushing the pace probably on some initial offense. I'm pretty sure Phil's got some triangle principles he's still trying to stick with but in today's game some early offense, some fast pace has obviously proven to be successful. I'm pretty sure they're trying to find a nice blend of both."

Difference-making plays by the Giants' defense on back-to-back snaps there. Olivier Vernon with a 10-yard sack of Roethlisberger, then Eli Apple with a stellar interception. Strong series for the Giants' 2016 offseason.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Make it two sacks for Olivier Vernon today. Now has 8.0 this season and seven in past five games. He's earning that money.

Misdirection gets Giants on the board with TD (0:25)

The Giants are back in this game, but their defensive line is banged up. Pierre-Paul is out, Hankins playing hurt, Damon Harrison just left the field with an injury.

Davey Johnson was passed over for Hall of Fame selection. He received fewer than five votes among the 16 voters and needed 75 percent. John Schuerholtz (16 votes) and Bud Selig (15) were selected.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants used a lot of window dressing on the screen pass to Rashad Jennings for the score. Boot action plus the reverse look. That puts some stress on defensive eye discipline. Giants cut the Steelers lead to 14-7 in the third quarter.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

I would complain about the number of screens in this Giants-Steelers game, but so many of them are working! The latest resulted in a 13-yard touchdown pass to Rashad Jennings.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Huge turnover by the Steelers allows the Giants back into the game. Two plays after recovering a fumble Rashad Jennings scores on a screen pass. It's 14-7 Steelers midway through third quarter.

Outside of the Kings locker room at Madison Square Garden: ex-Knicks and current Kings Arron Afflalo, Matt Barnes and Bob Thornton.

Odell Beckham had one catch on one target in the first half. Has been targeted on six of the first nine plays of the second half. Four catches on this drive, which just came up short on fourth down at the goal line.

Brown hauls in spectacular leaping TD (0:32)

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants were shutout in first half. They have 5 first downs and 91 total yards. The season-long offensive struggles continue. No consistency.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants came into this game concerned about Steelers hitting big plays, which is their specialty. Pittsburgh has responded by killing them underneath. Steelers TEs and RBs have 10 catches, 133 yards as they lead 14-0 at halftime.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

2+3+6+3 = 14-0 the non-traditional way for the Steelers.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Knicks center Joakim Noah (ankle) is available tonight against Sacramento. Courtney Lee (ankle) is out. Justin Holiday will likely start in place of Lee. With Noah back in the lineup, it will be interesting to see how Hornacek handles minutes for reserve bigs Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez.
