Knicks lead guards haven't been able to stay in front of Ricky Rubio often tonight. He just created two easy buckets for the Jazz midway through the third and Jeff Hornacek isn't happy about it.

Strong night for Tim Hardaway Jr., back in the starting lineup for the first time since coming back from a stress injury earlier this month. He has 15 points in 20 minutes for NYK. It will be interesting to see if Jeff Hornacek can play Hardaway more than 30 minutes. He's been on a minutes limit leading into tonight.

The Knicks had a run of poor possessions late in the second quarter and are fortunate to trail by just six against Utah. It will be interesting to see if NYK goes back to Frank Ntilikina in the second half. Jeff Hornacek pulled him after just three minutes in the first half following two turnovers.

The Charlotte Hornets would like engage the Knicks on trade discussions involving All-Star point guard Kemba Walker but New York and Charlotte haven't yet had substantive discussions about a trade involving Walker, per league sources. It seems unlikely at this point that the Knicks will want to meet Charlotte's desired return. Charlotte is hoping a Walker trade returns a good young player or a first-round pick, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Knicks have first-round draft picks and a promising young player in Frank Ntilikina. But the other part of Charlotte's request is a holdup for the Knicks. Wojnarowski reports that Charlotte appears eager to shed one of its less desirable contracts. That would mean the Knicks would likely need to take on extra salary to acquire Walker, which was something New York was hesitant to do in trading Carmelo Anthony over the summer.
