It could be Kevin Knox' time to shine for the Knicks.
Head coach David Fizdale has seen his team suffer back-to-back double-digit losses, and as a result, some lineup changes may follow. His first big switch was benching Enes Kanter, Trey Burke, and Lance Thomas for Mitchell Robinson, Damyean Dotson and Noah Vonleh.
As the Knicks fly to Oklahoma to face off against the Thunder on Wednesday night, there could be another new starting five when both teams tip off.
"We're going to look at some more stuff, me and the staff, as we get on the plane," Fizdale told The Post's Marc Berman. "Look at some group and some lineups. There may be some changes, but I'm not there yet."
After his 17-point game in the loss to the Magic, Knox could find his way out on the court to start the game tomorrow night for the first time in his career. Fizdale said there's "a possibility" Knox is slated to start, which would likely be in place of Dotson at small forward.
The rookie was expected to be in Fizdale's starting five against the Hawks at The Garden on Opening Night, but a rough ending to his preseason changed the first-year coach's mind.
The reason behind Fizdale exploring some change is not only due to the Knicks' blowouts, but also the team's assist totals. The Knicks are dead last in the NBA with 19.1 assists per game, which would indicate their offense is solely isolation plays or second-chance points around the rim most of the time.
It's a stat that Fizdale doesn't want to see next to the team's name.
"That makes me yack, to be honest with you," he said. "But we can only go from there. Yes, I hate that we're last in the league in assists. It drives me crazy."
Most would look at the point guard position as the reason this is a problem, but Burke said otherwise. Burke, who is tied with the current starting point guard in Frank Ntilikina with 3.5 assists per game, believes the Knicks need to do a better job in transition and playing quicker like Fizdale wants them to.
"I know assists will rise when we do that," Burke said. "We're aware of it. This is a very unselfish team. Guys want to see other guys be successful."
Ntilikina recognizes that he has to play better, especially if he wants to stay in the starting five.
"When you get down, you got to keep going until you go up again," Ntilikina said. "That's my mindset, and I'm pretty confident about my abilities and I know I'm going to play better the next couple of games."
But, through all the maneuvering, Fizdale wants to point out that there are no "demotions" happening when he makes these changes.
"It could be a lot of different things," he said. "I'm still just trying to evaluate who fits who, what combinations work together. None of this is about demotions or some guys not [doing] this, some guys not [doing] that.
"We're trying to figure out who works with who. What talents play well together, which ones really don't play well together. That's ultimately what we're trying to do."
So the Knicks will wait to see what Fizdale decides to do on Wednesday night, as the experimenting continues in New York.
