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.

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.

Very strong half from Derrick Rose, who has 14 points on 7-for-8 shooting, helping the Knicks build a 14-point lead. Kristaps Porzingis' shot has been off (1-for-10). It will be interesting to see how he adjusts in the second half.

Willy Hernangomez is incredibly smooth in the post. He put Kosta Koufos in a blender, spinning on him in the post and finishing with his left hand. He has 4 points, 2 rebounds and three assists in 6 minutes. Have to give Phil Jackson credit for that draft pick and signing.

Kyle O'Quinn goes coast to coast - blocks Demarcus Cousins on one end and finishes on the other end with a dunk. It's O'Quinn's world and we are just living in it at this point. Knicks have controlled this game for the most part. Up 13 midway through the second.

The Mets this offseason asked the Orioles for a high-end reliever in a trade for an outfielder (Curtis Granderson or Jay Bruce). That wasn't going to fly.

Odell Beckham says official told him to 'get out of my face' when he asked about a call. Said this crew shouldn't do Giants games. Same crew that did Giants-Panthers last year. Beckham also says officials clearly not the reason the Giants lost.

Ben McAdoo: 'We are who we are right now.' This in reference to offensive inconsistency. Also adds he's not concerned they're running out of time to get right.

Carmelo Anthony' headed back to the locker room to deal with a bloody lip. He was hit by Koustas Koufos on a drive and no foul was called. He's been replaced by Lance Thomas for the moment but should return.
