Should Knicks consider Scott Brooks to be next coach? (1:42)

Carmelo Anthony plans to use the All Star break to rehab his sore left knee. He will have a daily routine in Toronto and will continue that routine in New York. The Knicks have nine days between games and Anthony hopes to significantly relieve the knee soreness in that span.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

One turning point for this Knicks season was on Jan. 12, when Carmelo Anthony ran into a referee accidentally and sprained his ankle. He's missed five of 15 games since and the Knicks have done 3-12 in that span. They've fired their head coach, in part, because of the struggles in that stretch.

Matt Barnes says Derek Fisher's firing "don't matter to me." The Grizzlies forward, who says the picture he posted on social media after the firing had nothing to do with Fisher, was serenaded to "Fisher" chants toward the end of Memphis' 109-90 win over Brooklyn. "I hear it every game," Barnes said. "Everyone has time to say (something) when they're protected and then they don't have the balls to say it to your face so all you can do is laugh."

Knicks have lost their way

On Jan. 20, New York stood at 22-22 and only one-half game out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Not much has gone right in Gotham since.

Phil Jackson said in an interview with MSG Network that the chances the Knicks have a 'very slim opportunity' to make a trade before the Feb. 18 deadline but adds that 'we are open to it." The Knicks would love to add help in the backcourt.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Jackson said on MSG Network that the team noticed Kristaps Porzingis fatiguing at points during the season. Jackson said that Porzingis had been lackadaisical to start some games and was taking poor shots, which is something the coaching staff worked with him on.

Knicks fall short in Rambis' debut (1:00)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Kurt Rambis' message to the Knicks heading into the All Star break: stay active, do cardio work, don't loaf around.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Kurt Rambis says the coaching staff knows that quick point guards are going to give Jose Calderon problems. John Wall had 28 points (10-for-24) and 17 assists tonight.

Kurt Rambis said the Knicks failed early on to get back on defense and stop Washington in transition.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Wizards 111, Knicks 108: A breakdown by the Wizards allowed Langston Galloway to get off an uncontested 3-pointer at the buzzer but his shot came up short, sealing the Knicks' loss. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 33 points and Kristaps Porzongis had 20. It was Mew York's first game under interim head coach Kurt Rambis. Overall, the Knicks (23-32) have dropped 10 of 11 and six straight entering the All Star break.

Wizards survive Knicks last-second shot

Down by 3 in the final seconds, Langston Galloway got a wide-open look from the wing, but his shot came up just short and the Wizards escaped with a 111-108 win in Kurt Rambis' debut as Knicks head coach. Box score

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Langston Galloway: unshakeable. After committing what could have been a game-ending turnover, Galloway hits a 3-pointer with 8.5 seconds to play to pull NY within one. Give the Knicks this much: they didn't quit late in games under Derek Fisher and they haven't quit tonight in Game No. 1 under Kurt Rambis.
