Toronto reels off a 20-5 run and is up 19. This will be a good test for Jeff Hornacek and the young Knicks. Will they lay down on the road or tweak their approach at halftime and compete in the second half?

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Knicks backcourt is having a tough time with Kyle O'Quinn and DeMar DeRozan and Kristaps Porzingis has missed his first 6 shots. That's why Toronto is up 18 early in the second quarter.
