Knicks drop to No. 18 in rankings

"Zinger fever" has abated somewhat with four straight losses pushing New York down three spots in Marc Stein's weekly assessment. Home games this week against the 76ers and Nets should prove helpful. Power Rankings

The Knicks sent Cleanthony Early to the D-League for tonight's game. He will likely be back with the club for their next game on Wednesday. Early hadn't played much at all lately so this is a wise use of the D League affiliate by the Knicks. Their D League club - the Westchester Knicks - plays its home games a few miles away from the team's practice facility in Westchester.

Kristaps Porzingis says of getting dunked on by Dwight Howard: "He got me." In his next breathe, Porzingis said he asked teammates when NYK plays HOU next because "I want to get him back." He was smiling when he said it but it's clear that he's looking forward to the opportunity.

Jerian Grant hit an open three-pointer to give the Knicks a 13-point lead with 8 minutes to play against Houston. It may seem like a non-descript play on the surface. But Grant had made just one of his last 16 3-point attempts. Pretty big shot for the rookie.

Kristaps Porzingis has 12 points and 11 rebounds with five minutes to play in the third quarter tonight. It's his eighth double double in 18 career games.

Here's one reason Brook & Robin Lopez dont live together in New York: their cats dont get along. Brooks cat (Poupin, pictured below) is very two-faced, Robin Lopez told the New York Post. ".... He acts like a lazy, sweet cat when everybody is looking. But when their heads turn, hell try to chase after (my cat)."

Knicks say Carmelo Anthony (illness) will not dress tonight. Lance Thomas will start in his place.

The Knicks played fast in the preseason, ranking in the top 10 in pace. But they've slowed down considerably since. New York enters play tonight ranked 25th in pace. Derek Fisher wants that to change. "It's something we have to figure out how to get back to as the season goes on."

Dwight Howard will face Kristaps Porzingis for the first time tonight. Hes been impressed with the rookie thus far. For him to be 7-2, 7-3, hes skilled tremendously & and I like where his head is at, Howard said. I really never heard of the kid before the draft & I watched the draft & the fans were booing & I felt bad for him. But it seems now hes won New Yorks heart with the way hes played.

Anthony among top DFS plays

Jim McCormick lists Carmelo Anthony among his top recommendations for Sunday night, when the Knicks will host the Rockets. He also likes Kristaps Porzingis on a lesser level. Best buys (Insider)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Houston Rockets are expected to play their "big" starting five again against the Knicks tonight. The lineup features Dwight Howard & Clint Capela so it will be an interesting test for New York's two starting bigs -- Robin Lopez and Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis had 24 points, 14 rebounds and 7 blocks against Houston last week but Howard sat out of the game as a precaution.
