The Knicks beat the Pistons 103-89 Saturday at Madison Square Garden, giving them a 2-1 advantage in the final season series — a development that greatly will trouble Detroit (31-31) if it misses the postseason. New York averages 99 points a game for the season but 105 against the Pistons. “They dominate us and we can’t play Arron Afflalo and Carmelo Anthony,” Van Gundy said. “We have nobody to play those two guys and Robin Lopez always plays great against Andre (Drummond), always.”
Veteran Knicks mostly took the firing of Derek Fisher in stride, understanding that it is part of the business, but they also expressed regret that their former coach took the fall for what they described as a group failure. “I was surprised; in my mind I don’t think the problem was really with one person,” said Robin Lopez, one of four regulars who spoke in the locker room before Tuesday night’s game at Madison Square Garden against the Wizards, shortly after Carmelo Anthony had addressed reporters in a club area just outside the room.
