For the first time this season, Enes Kanter was not in the starting lineup on Friday night -- and he didn't want to say much about it after the game, either.
Kanter, who scored eight points and grabbed 13 rebounds off the bench in the team's loss to the Warriors, simply said he is moving forward with Coach Fizdale's plans.
"Coach said he wants me to lead the second unit," Kanter said. "So I'm just leading the second unit."
Kanter's move to the bench was part of a larger change by Fizdale, who hinted in recent games that he would consider making "tweaks" to the lineup. Lance Thomas and Trey Burke also were bumped from the lineup, while Noah Vonleh, Damyean Dotson, Mitchell Robinson, and Frank Ntilikina started.
Kanter posted a cryptic Tweet earlier in on social media earlier in the day following the news of the Knicks' lineup change.
