The Knicks faltered late in the second half and fell to 0-2 in the Las Vegas Summer League as they lost to the Phoenix Suns 105-100 in overtime on Sunday.
Five things to know about Sunday's game
1) Knicks rookie RJ Barrett struggled from the floor again, making just 3 of 15 field goals. He scored eight points and committed eight turnovers. Through two games, he has 23 points on 7-of-33 shooting.
2) Second-round pick Ignas Brazdeikis scored 30 points on 11-of-18 shooting, while Kevin Knox, last year's first-round pick, scored 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting, missing a potential game-tying 3-pointer with under a minute left. Mitchell Robinson had 17 points, eight rebounds and two blocks.
3) Brazdeikis forced overtime with a late 3-pointer in regulation that capped a 7-0 run by the Knicks. But in two-minute overtime period, the Suns outscored New York 7-4, taking the lead for good on a Rayvonte Rice 3-pointer and not looking back.
4) New York outrebounded Phoenix 40-32, thanks in part to Barrett's 10 boards and Brazdeikis' eight.
