GEICO SportsNite: Rose no-shows 00:00:29
Knicks guard Derrick Rose did not show up to the game against the Pelicans at Madison Square Garden leading to concerns from the team.

New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose left the team without permission for Monday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans to deal with what he told teammates as a family issue back in Chicago, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Rose's absence, which surprised several teammates and temporarily went unaccounted for, could possibly lead to a suspension and may have cost himself long-term job security with the Knicks, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Head coach Jeff Hornacek did not specify why Rose was not with the team for the Knicks' 110-96 loss, even after teammate Courtney Lee said Rose, who has played in 33 of 38 games this season, was at shootaround before the game, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. The Knicks' full statement during the game, according to Deadspin, was, "He's not with the team."

Will Knicks ever jell? 00:02:16
Daily News Live discusses the Knicks lack of team chemistry and inconsistent play so far this season.

Anthony Davis had 40 points and 18 rebounds before leaving with a left hip injury after a hard foul Monday night in the New Orleans Pelicans' 110-96 victory over the New York Knicks, who started the game without Derrick Rose and lost Carmelo Anthony to an ejection.

Rose was not with the team for unspecified reasons, and Anthony was back in the locker room late in the third quarter after getting thrown out for arguing with the officials.

Davis played only 29 minutes and also blocked three shots. He left the game when he was flagrantly fouled by Kyle O'Quinn, ejected for swinging his arm down hard on Davis, who was dribbling up the floor on a fast break and ended up being knocked into the front row of fans behind the baseline. >> Read more

Carmelo Anthony says he was momentarily "shocked" when he felt someone grasping at his thigh as he stood near the top of the key in the final minute of the New York Kicks' game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night.

When he saw it was a young boy who'd somehow slipped through courtside security to give him a hug, his instinct was to react with an affectionate pat on the head.

"It was a little kid," Anthony said when explaining his friendly response. "I was shocked. I didn't really know who was it until I actually looked over and saw that it was a kid."

Jrue Holiday scored 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and the New Orleans Pelicans snapped a three-game slide with a 99-91 victory over the New York Knicks on Monday night.

Returning from a two-game absence because of a toe injury on his left foot, Holiday took over a tight game in the final minutes, scoring six points during a 9-0 run that gave New Orleans a 93-85 lead.

The Pelicans won for the first time this season when scoring fewer than 100 points. New Orleans had been 0-33 in such games.

According to STATS:

  • The Pelicans have held the Knicks to fewer than 100 points in each of their last five meetings. The only time New Orleans has kept New York to under 100 points in six straight contests was the first six matchups from Nov. 10, 2002 -- Feb. 11, 2004.

  • Alonzo Gee put up a season-high 18 points in the loss to Toronto on Saturday. It marked the first time Gee had scored 15+ points in back-to-back games since April 5-7, 2013, which was also the last time he scored 18+ points (19 on April 7, 2013).
  • Jose Calderon had seven assists and no turnovers in the loss to Cleveland. Calderon has nine games on the year with at least five assists and zero turnovers, tied with Tony Parker for the most games in the NBA.

  • Norris Cole recorded his second double-double of the season (but his first career points/assists one) when he had 17 points and 10 assists against Sacramento on Thursday. He had just one double-double in his first four seasons.
  • Ryan Anderson tied his career-high for points in a game when he poured in 36 in Thursday's victory over Sacramento; he also had 36 points against Chicago, December 2, 2013. Anderson has now had 20+ points in each of his last three contests.

The Nets (23-26) defeated the New Orleans Pelicans (22-28) Sunday night by a score of 93-81.

The Least You Should Know:

[sny-box]With all eyes on Anthony Davis, it was actually a young Nets center who stole the show tonight, as rookie Mason Plumlee had perhaps the best game of his career.

Tonight, the Nets return home and look to get back in the win column when they host the New Orleans Pelicans at the Barclays Center.?The Nets have faced every team in the NBA at least once, with New Orleans being the only team they have yet to play.?It's the first of two meetings between the two teams.

The Pelicans enter tonight with a 22-27 record on the year, winners of two straight games. However, no two divisions in the NBA have a more dramatic difference in quality than the Nets' Atlantic division and the Pelicans' Southwest division.

At 22-26, the Nets are in second place, 3.0 games behind first-place Toronto, the only team in the Atlantic with a winning record. The Pelicans, with a virtually identical record to Brooklyn, are dead last in the Southwest. In fact, of the five Southwest division teams, the Pelicans are the only team that doesn't?have a winning record.
