Lowly Nets Send Knicks to 41st Loss - Mar 13, 2017

Brook Lopez
Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis (7'3''-C/F-95) slumped his 7-foot-3 body into a chair in a dour visitors' locker room at Barclays Center on Sunday and went about examining the latest turbulence in his team's chaotic season. He had plenty of material, but little clarity. The Knicks had just absorbed their 41st loss - a 120-112 defeat to the dismal Nets (12-53) - to ensure a fourth straight nonwinning season. The Knicks (26-41) continued to run their offense haphazardly, even as they delved deeper into the triangle system, the offense made famous by the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers when they were coached to championships by Phil Jackson, now the Knicks' president. The Knicks' defense was so poor that seven Nets scored in double digits, led by Brook Lopez (7'0''-C-88, college: Stanford) with 25 points, including six 3-pointers. The Nets' win ended their home losing steak at 16 games. The Knicks have lost three straight games and five of six. Whatever playoff hopes they had at the All-Star break have all but drained away. With the seventh-worst record in the N.B.A., the Knicks might as well be counting lottery balls for the draft. In recent weeks, they have turned their focus to the triangle offense to try to salvage their season and build for the future. The pace-and-space system, which Coach Jeff Hornacek tried to introduce in October, while juggling the triangle, now seems so distant. Hornacek has tinkered, nearly endlessly, with his defense and offense all season, trying to find answers to the team's problems. 'We've been switching things up,' Porzingis said, adding: 'We never played like we wanted to. It was always kind of like: 'Oh, maybe this will work. Maybe this will work.' We were kind of looking for stuff.' Sunday night, it continued. The Knicks hit just 41.5 percent of their field-goal attempts. One night after Carmelo Anthony (6'8''-SF-84, college: Syracuse) took just nine shots in a loss to the Pistons, he took nine in the first quarter and 26 in all. He made just 10 and scored 27 points. Porzingis added 19 points and 10 rebounds. 'We don't know the triangle that well,' he said. 'We're very basic in what we do.' Porzingis made an attempt to paint the loss with optimism, even as Anthony said that tempering frustration would be the team's biggest remaining challenge. Porzingis mentioned a saying - a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor. But just a few breaths earlier, he had conceded that confusion reigned with these Knicks. 'From top to bottom,' he said. 'Everything. A lot of stuff that's not clear. So it's hard to play.'
