The NBA's Last Two Minute Report states that Eric Bledsoe did not foul Derrick Rose on late drive. Jeff Hornacek said there was body contact but the L2M states that the Suns point guard "maintains legal guarding position and makes incidental contact with Rose (NYK) that does not affect his drive to the basket and shot attempt."

When games are within 5 points in the last 5 minutes (including OT), Carmelo Anthony is shooting 31.3% (15-of-48), the 3rd-lowest field goal percentage among players with at least 30 attempts according to ESPN Stats and Info. Derrick Rose is shooting 44.4% (20-of-45) and Kristaps Porzingis is making 39.4% (13-of-33). "It's keeping the belief in and the faith in ourselves and one another to know that when we lose (on) one or two plays you can't fault the effort," Anthony said of losing in close games. "The effort is there. There's something that's not going our way. We're not doing the small things... When you're losing games you have to work that much harder to make sure those things don't happen."

The Knicks' last 3 losses have come at the end by a total of 6 points combined. In games within 5 points in the last 5 minutes (including overtime), the Knicks are 11-14, ranking 20th in the NBA according to ESPN Stats and Info. "It's frustrating," Jeff Hornacek said after losing another close game, 107-105, to Phoenix. "The guys are hanging in there... Over 82 games we'll look at the end of the season and it'll probably end up about even. I say to our guys, you know, our times will come. It's just a bad stretch for our guys."

Final game in the Georgia Dome today: I covered the first game (regular season). It was Sept. 6, 1992. The Falcons defeated the Jets in the season opener, 20-17. QB Browning Nagle made his starting debut, throwing for 366 yards, two TDs and a 108.6 passer rating in defeat. The Jets thought they had found their franchise quarterback. They were wrong.

Amazing championship weekend stat: Tom Brady has gone back to pass 487 times this season. Zero lost fumbles. Not sure how that is even possible.

Carmelo Anthony says "I'm done kind of worrying about that" when asked if he wonders if management might make some changes with Knicks losing 13 of last 16 games. Also when asked about LeBron James potentially playing in 2020 Olympics, Anthony says he's retired from Olympic play and says James can have his U.S Olympic scoring record.

Jeff Hornacek said he thought there was "body contact" by Eric Bledsoe on Derrick Rose on the drive to the basket near the end and it wasn't called. "I don't know if they treat guys differently because they say, 'OK, he's a great player, he should be able to make that shot," Hornacek said. "It's still body contact. I don't know what the difference is between a guy who pump fakes and leans into somebody, that's body contact and they call that."
