They couldn't stop Rodney Stuckey, struggled on offense and failed to quell Detroit's front line in a 92-86 loss to the Pistons.
New York has lost three straight and four of five heading into a Wednesday night matchup against -- gulp -- the 9-1 Indiana Pacers.
Miffed Melo: Carmelo Anthony struggled mightily from the floor against Detroit. He missed 12 of his 20 shots and had seven turnovers. Anthony seemed to be extremely bothered by the way the officials called the game. He complained to officials several times about noncalls and received a technical foul in the second half.
Why not foul Drummond? Drummond hit just one of five free throws on Tuesday. He's shooting less than 20 percent from the line, but Mike Woodson elected not to foul him in the fourth quarter as the Knicks trailed by 15 with nine minutes to play and attempted to come back. It's unclear why he decided against this strategy.
What's next: The Knicks take on the Pacers on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
New York is 0-2 in the second game of back-to-backs this season.
