For 2 lottery picks, less minutes with Knicks means different postgame routine

  For 2 lottery picks, less minutes with Knicks means different postgame routine Dennis Smith Jr. came into the locker room dripping in sweat, roughly 30 minutes after again playing sparingly in Saturday’s loss to the Spurs. The point guard, who represents the biggest piece acquired by the Knicks in the Kristaps Porzingis trade, has a new routine for his new reality as a 15-minute backup: cardio workouts postgame to stay in shape.

Mike Miller has officially joined the Knicks ' coaching staff. Miller fills a hole that was left by the departure of Howard Eisley. Last season, James' Lakers lost to a struggling Knicks team in a game that ended with him getting rejected by Mario Hezonja.

The Knicks played harder under new interim coach Mike Miller, but Julius Randle couldn’t hit the free throw.

In a dramatic finish, Randle was at the line with 0.1 seconds left and trailing by 2. He hit the first one, sending the crowd to its feet. But the second shot bricked off the back of the rim, sending the Knicks to their ninth straight defeat, 104-103, the day after David Fizdale was fired.

BOX SCORE: PACERS 104, KNICKS 103

The Knicks, as a result, fell to 4-19 with the worst record in the NBA.

The Pacers are an overachieving playoff contender at 15-8, but were also on the second night of a back-to-back after flying Saturday morning from Detroit. They also didn’t have their leading scorer and point guard as Malcolm Brogdon was out with a hand injury. The Knicks had an opportunity Saturday largely because of their scrappy defense, but their execution faltered offensively.

Three Things to Know: Luka Doncic is putting up age 20 stats we haven’t seen since LeBron

  Three Things to Know: Luka Doncic is putting up age 20 stats we haven’t seen since LeBron Doncic is averaging 30.6 points, 10.1 rebounds and 9.8 assists a night this season.1) Luka Doncic is putting up at age 20 statistics we haven’t seen since LeBron. In his second season in the NBA, at age 20, LeBron James had a season for the ages: 27.2 points per game, 7.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists a night, and a PER of 25.7, all on his way to making his first All-Star game and, at season’s end, All-NBA (second team).

Maybe Mike Miller , the assistant who will replace Fizdale, per The Athletic' s Shams Charania, will be able to rein Randle in. Maybe Miller can get the team more organized, make it more watchable and find some semblance of a balanced rotation. I can't help thinking, though

Latest on New York Knicks power forward Julius Randle including news, stats, videos, highlights and more on ESPN. He' s had success getting to the line lately, with double-digit free throw attempts in each of his last three games . He'll now have a few days off before facing the Nuggets on Thursday.

They missed 14 of their last 15 shots, including six consecutive to end the game. Randle was fouled after grabbing a rebound off a blocked shot.

Miller, meanwhile, had about 24 hours to prepare for the game and said he’d adjust on the fly.

“Just to start with, the focus on (Saturday night) with what we’re going to go into, it’s going to be really what the game calls for,” he said. “What do we need? Everybody’s ready. We believe in everybody. It’s going to be what we need for this game. Who can help us build this thing through this game? One game at a time. As cliché as that sounds, that’s really what it is. It’s been one day and that’s where it’s at.”

Miller had been the head coach of the Westchester Knicks for four seasons, winning the G-League Coach of the Year in 2018. He has less ties to Fizdale than the rest of the staff since he was brought into the organization by Phil Jackson. Miller actually sat behind the bench during games before being promoted to interim coach.

Miller’s experience in the G-League gives him a unique perspective in player development, and he said Saturday that pushing the pace was the priority.

“Let’s get some force with our entries coming into our offense, let’s have some attack. Let’s get downhill more, put more pressure on that defense, and do that consistently,” Miller said. “Because when we’ve done that we felt like we’ve had good possessions. We’ve had good quarters, good games. And that’s where we’re at.”

The organization is feeling urgency and it’s trickling down to the players. Even before Fizdale was fired, Marcus Morris, the team leader, summoned a players-only meeting Friday.

“We were 4-18,” Dennis Smith Jr. said. “Got to talk about something. Got to hash something out.”

Fizdale had hinted at a lineup change just hours before he was fired. Miller stuck with the same group of Frank Ntilikina, RJ Barrett, Marcus Morris, Randle and Taj Gibson.

Knicks dominate the Hawks and continue to show improvement under Mike Miller .
It was in the final minute of the first half when Mitchell Robinson, the high-flying Knicks center, picked up a loose ball and soared for tomahawk jam. That gave the Knicks 75 points in the second quarter. Seconds later — just before the first-half buzzer — Dennis Smith Jr. nailed a fadeaway. It capped an 8-0 run over 68 seconds to give the a 24-point advantage. Total domination. The bar was set extremely low during the David Fizdale era, and interim coach Mike Miller has the Knicks leaping over it with plenty of room to spare.
