Quincy Acy led New York with 18 points while Tim Hardaway Jr. added 15. Shane Larkin had 12 points off the bench but the of the Knicks struggled, most especially veteran Jose Calderon, who missed nine of 12 shots.
"They have to continue to learn, and we all have to continue to learn that it's not easy to win in this league. We're obviously finding out the hard way," Derek Fisher said after the game.
