Things to know about Saturday's game
1) The Knicks had absolutely no answer for Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox. The 21-year-old finished with 30 points, eight assists and five rebounds. After the Knicks took a brief 89-87 lead with six minutes remaining in the game, Fox responded by scoring 13 of the Kings' final 16 points en route to close out the victory for Sacramento.
2) DeAndre Jordan and Dennis Smith Jr., the two players who came over from the Kristaps Porzingis trade, were the most efficient Knicks on the court. Jordan was 6 of 9 from the field and finished with a double-double of 14 points and 15 rebounds. Smith led the Knicks with 18 points, although he was a little less consistent, shooting 7 of 19 from the field and just 2 of 7 from 3-point range.
3) Mitchell Robinson continued to be the defensive anchor for the Knicks. The rookie had three more blocks plus a steal on Saturday. He also grabbed nine boards -- three offensive -- and finished with eight points in 22 minutes of action.
4) Kevin Knox got another start, but once again did not see the floor in the fourth quarter. The rookie's struggles continued, shooting 3-for-12 from the field, including 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
