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.
2) With the loss, the Knicks set their franchise record in consecutive losses, snapping the 16-game streak that came in the 2014-15 season under head coach Derek Fisher. That season the Knicks had only 17 wins, another franchise record.
3) Smith had back-to-back rough games after dropping a career-high in points two games prior. Tonight, he had only 10 points on 5-of-12 shooting with four assists, two blocks, three steals and two rebounds.
4) On the other hand, Kadeem Allen was the Knicks' biggest source of offense, as he continues to have success in his past couple contests. He rewrote his career high in points with 25 on a very efficient 10-of-16 shooting with six assists and three rebounds.
5) Kevin Knox continues to struggle from the field, shooting only 5-for-16 for 13 points. He was 1-for-7 from beyond the arc, and saw a couple airballs come as well.
6) DeAndre Jordan collected another double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while also tallying two assists and one block on the night.
