Air quality still "unhealthy for sensitive groups" in Santa Clara because of Camp Fire several hundred miles away. It's hard to tell though at Levi Stadium. Just a little hazy in the distance. Wouldn't expect it to influence game.

Newly acquired Jamon Brown will start at right guard on Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers 12 days after being claimed by the Giants, according to multiple sources. Brown started 16 games for the Rams last year. With the newcomer taking John Greco's spot in the lineup it will be the Giants' fourth different starting O-line combination in nine games.

The Jets are expected to stick with coach Todd Bowles through the end of the season, from what I understand. There will be no bye-week firing. Ownership will evaluate everything at the end of the year. As stated last night, it would be out of character for the franchise to make an in-season change. The Jets haven't done it since 1975. One reason: They don't have a logical candidate on staff who could be the interim coach.

The Knicks wanted to play fast coming into the season but rank 22nd in pace entering Monday's games. Here's David Fizdale on why they've played slow (2/2): “So our pace is definitely slow since then but I'm still emphasizing it, getting it up the court. I think the most important thing for our team is being organized. And our pace suffered because of that. where we're getting where we're supposed to be, organized, and then we run what we're supposed to run. Yeah it's suffered some but that's part of the give and take of adjusting to what you have out there.”

The Knicks wanted to play fast entering the season but rank 22nd in pace entering Monday's games. Here's David Fizdale on why they've played slow (1/2). “I think a lot of it is I'm playing more two big basketball now. That's just – coaches got to adjust to the roster. And what you have at that time to give them the best chance to play good basketball. It all sounds great when you come in and you say I want to do this, I want to do that. But you gotta work with what you have right now. So my job right now is to try to take them and try to put them in the best scenario to give them a chance to win games and to have success and grow.”

New York ranks 20th in 3-pointers taken per 100 possessions and 28th in 3-point field goal percentage. David Fizdale was asked if, in a perfect world, he'd have more 3-point shooters on the roster. “Well yeah but right now, we're just getting Kevin (Knox) back. Courtney Lee's been out the whole year, he's one of our 3-point shooters. But we don't have that right now. We don't have a team loaded full of spread guys who can just shoot – where you're getting up 40 threes a night and doing all of that. That's the good part about it. We're all on the same page from the standpoint of look, this is who we have, we're going to coach them to their strengths and try to put the game together in a way that all of these guys can grow and get better.”

New York ranks 30th in assists per 100 possessions. David Fizdale says that isn't a result of selfish play. “Sometimes holding it too much, not making shots. There's always two sides getting assists,” Fizdale said before his team's loss to Orlando. “Trust. Making the right play with right timing. There's a lot of different factors. I don't think it's a selfish thing. We're not a selfish team at all. It's matter of timing, hitting guys when they're open and converting fastbreaks when we have a 3-on-1, 3-on-2 opportunity and not finishing those and making shots.”
