NEW YORK KNICKS VIDEOS

Jackson said Anthony needs to focus on other things than shotmaking, getting to the basket when the triangle is set up on the other side of the court as he did in Atlanta in the first half on Saturday. Jackson also would like to see Anthony get more offensive rebounds. Jackson hasn’t traveled to any road games, but has been giving input. In fact, he made a point to step on the court during the morning shootaround Monday to impart wisdom about showing more fight against physical defense. New York Post

Jackson said he told his coaches to expect the team to struggle early on due in part to a difficult schedule. The Knicks have played eight games in the first 12 days of the season, seven against teams that made the playoffs in 2013-14. The lone exception was a road game against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. "I see growth in this team and I'm optimistic," Jackson said. "It's not always the final score; it's sometimes how you play. I think we're playing the game much better and we're getting some activity that we like to see." ESPN.com

J .R. Smith returned to the Knicks’ lineup Friday night in Brooklyn after serving a one-game suspension for what he insisted was an unintentional striking of Washington’s Glen Rice Jr. in the groin earlier this week. “I wasn’t surprised. It is what it is,” Smith said at the morning shootaround at Barclays Center. “At this stage of my career with all the suspensions and stuff like that, once I knew I had to make the phone call, something was going to come down from it. “It is what it is, just got to move on and try and win some games.” New York Daily News

Williams toasted Shumpert like an English muffin all game, finishing with 29 points on 10-of-15 shooting in the Nets’ 110-99 victory. One question was answered: Williams is healthy. One question remained: When are the Knicks getting a healthy point guard back? “I’m going to take this one,” said Shumpert, who stood up, stuck out his chest and took every hit. “Deron Williams got to do whatever he wanted out there. I got to get better with controlling the ball after him coming off the ball screen. I didn’t do a good job of that tonight. “As a reflection of that, our bigs got in foul trouble, they hit 3s from everywhere on the court because he kept getting into that paint. I [have] got to do a better job of getting over the ball screens and not letting him get into our defense.” New York Post
