Things to know about Monday's game

1) The Knicks came close to forcing overtime in this one, as Luke Kornet drained back-to-back threes to bring New York within one. He had a great look after a pump fake to take the lead, but was well short on another three. In the end, the Knicks had two chances to bury a three to send the game to overtime, but Dennis Smith Jr. and Kornet were off.

1) The Knicks got off to a hot start with a 14-3 run. However, the Raptors closed the first quarter with a 25-23 lead. New York made it close the rest of the way, regaining their lead at one point in the second. But Toronto, the second-best team in the Eastern Conference right now, would've let this one slip away.

Things to know about Friday's game

1) Following up a 25-point game, Dennis Smith Jr. dropped a career-high 31 points on 9-for-15 from the field with eight assists and two rebounds as well. Smith also went 11-for-19 from the charity stripe, which he didn't seem happy about having given away eight free points. Either way, he has solidified himself as the Knicks' main source of offense since the Kristaps Porzingis trade.

Knicks lose 14th straight game 00:01:31
Knicks coach David Fizdale, Dennis Smith Jr. and DeAndre Jordan comment on Smith's stellar performance in the Knicks loss to the Pistons.

Led by PF Blake Griffin, the Pistons took down the Knicks in Madison Square Garden, 105-92, for the team's 14th straight loss. >> Box score

Things to know about Tuesday's game

1) Dennis Smith Jr. had his best game as a Knick so far, dropping 25 points on 11-for-25 shooting with six assists and five rebounds as well. Being the Knicks' primary source of offense tonight, this could be the role Smith plays for the rest of the season, especially since he was in a lot of 1-on-1 situations. Fizdale clearly wants to see Smith's offensive gifts for himself, and he got that tonight.
