Here's Carmelo Anthony on the Knicks, who fell to 8-9 tonight with an ugly loss to Miami: "To drop 3 after weve been playing so well, I just think we got a reality check."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Knicks have shot a combined 38% in their last 3 games. A common theme from the locker room: some players believe opponents have taken things away from the Knicks after more detailed scouting and that now need to adjust.

Derek Fisher continues to go deep into his bench. Tonight against Miami, he played 12 players, 11 of whom played at least 14 minutes. Foul trouble for Porzingis and Robin Lopez factored in to his decisions, but it's fair to wonder if a shorter rotation from Fisher would help NYK.

Carmelo Anthony started tonight's game 4-for-5 but has missed his last 8 shots. With Anthony off and Kristaps Porzingis in foul trouble, the Knicks offense has struggled. NY is shooting 39% from the floor, down 13 with 8:45 to go.

Derek Fisher is still tinkering with his rotations  and the results haven't been good lately. The Knicks bench has been outscored 71-22 in the past 2 games. Its my job to continue to figure out & search for how to substitute guys, how to get our rotations in a way where we can sustain that & not have the drop-offs in the 2nd & 4th quarter," he says. Fisher's been playing 13 different guys & it seems as if that will continue for the foreseeable future.

'The Zinger' catches our eye

Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis was cited among the most surprising players during the NBA's opening month by ESPN's panel of hardwood experts. 5-on-5

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

One thing that stood out to Chris Bosh in his matchup with Kristaps Porzingis? How much the Knicks involve the rookie in their offense. "He can spread the floor, put the ball on the floor, can post up, he can do it all. So you have to be aware of that," he said. "They really try to get him going. They involve him in the offense quite a bit so he's going to take a lot of shots. So you just have to conteset them all."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Chris Bosh thinks the Knicks look much more comfortable on offense this year than they did last season. "I think the ball movement has been a lot better. It seemed all around in the offense when they were trying to run the triangle (last season) it kind of got stuck & you could tell guys werent totally comfortable." NY currently ranks 20th in offensive efficiency.

Halftime: Magic 46, Knicks 35

Orlando's Tobias Harris scored a team-high 11 points, and Jason Smith added 8 points off the bench to help the Magic to an 11-point halftime lead. Carmelo Anthony scored 13 to carry the load for the Knicks, while rookie Kristaps Porzingis was held scoreless in a first half for the first time in his career. Follow live

The Knicks are shooting 29.3 percent from the field and trail the Magic 46-35 at the half. Rookie Kristaps Porzingis has been strong defensively, contesting and altering shots near the rim, but is 0-for-5 shooting.

Knicks (8-7) at Magic (6-8)

New York opened a four-game trip with wins over Oklahoma City and Houston to give it four straight victories overall for the first time since the end of the 2013-14 season. A big reason? Rookie Kristaps Porzingis, who is averaging 20 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.8 blocks while shooting 51.9 percent -- 66.7 from beyond the arc -- in the last four games. New York leads early in the first. Follow live
