New York Teams

Carmelo Anthony, probably correctly, referred to Joakim Noah's surgery as 'season-ending.' The Knicks hope Noah can come back before the end of the year, but that seems unlikely.

It probably doesn't need an explanation, but here's Carmelo Anthony on why he threw his headband across the floor after missing an open potential game-winner: "It was all about the shot. I had a wide open shot. I made a tougher shot the other day. I should've made that shot. It was just frustration at that."

Derrick Rose on the DeMar DeRozan game-winner: 'Great D, better O.'

Derrick Rose says his shoulder is feeling OK. He suffered a stinger.

Jeff Hornacek said coaches reminded the players they had a foul to give on Toronto's last possession. Knicks didn't use it.

Derrick Rose defended DeMar DeRozan's game-winning shot pretty well but DeRozan, one of the NBA's top defenders, nailed the contested fadeaway to ultimately seal Toronto's win. ‪Carmelo Anthony missed an open three on the other end at the buzzer that would have won the game. Anthony threw his headband down in disgust. ‬So it goes for the Knicks.

Knicks went isolated Carmelo Anthony to start their last possession. Anthony missed, got his own rebound, and fed Courtney Lee for an open three. Lee hits, Knicks are up one with 10 seconds to play.

Knicks are down two with the ball and 44 seconds to play. The play seemed set up for Carmelo Anthony to get the ball on the weak side. Instead, Derrick Rose found a seam and layed the ball in, tying the score at 88-88.

Carmelo Anthony, not interested in tanking, hits a turnaround jumper on the baseline over Cory Joseph to tie the game at 82-82 with 2:37 to go. He'll have a chance to break the tie from the free-throw line momentarily.

Have seen this t-shirt at MSG a few times. This one worn by Knicks fan Ernie Goetz:

Bad close to the third quarter for the Knicks. They get the ball to Kyle O'quinn for a corner three - a shot he doesn't take often. He air balled it and Fred Van Vleet finished with a layup to end the quarter. Toronto down four entering the fourth.

Patterson trips into defensive play (0:21)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Derrick Rose appears to have hurt his left shoulder or wrist on a collision with Patrick Patterson. He asked out of the game.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Wow. Toronto reels off seven straight points to open the third quarter and cuts the Knicks' 13-point lead to six. Jeff Hornacek calls a quick timeout. This Knicks team has lost many double digit leads this season. Are we headed toward another one here?

Jeff Hornacek pushed back against the notion that the Knicks, four games out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference entering play Monday, were losing intentionally to improve their chances to land a top pick in the draft lottery. "As a team we're not thinking about losing," he said. ".... Because Brandon was waived doesn't mean that we're not trying to win these games. We feel Ron Baker can fill right in."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek going with a back court of Ron Baker and Derrick Rose late in the second quarter, an interesting alignment that's helped the Knicks build on a 15-point lead. It allows Carmelo Anthony to play power forward, a position where he's thrived over the past few seasons.
