Smith, who signed with New York on Friday after playing in the Chinese Basketball Association during the lockout, scored 15 points in 30 minutes on 6-of-16 shooting, including 3-of-9 from 3-point range."First five minutes was really mind blowing," Smith said. "First thing I was thinking was don't airball your first shot. You never live that down in New York City. So once I made my first one, that really got me going." Veteran guard Baron Davis was active Sunday, but did not play. Bill Walker (elbow) also sat out Sunday. Davis, who has been recovering from a herniated disk in his back, has yet to play in a game this season after joining New York after the lockout. The 33-year-old point guard hasn't participated in a full practice lately, but could play a key role in spelling recent sensation Jeremy Lin.
