Fizdale emerged as a leading candidate after the Knicks fired Jeff Hornacek once the end of the season, but the front office made sure to do its due diligence in meeting with more than 10 coaching candidates. The Knicks’ front office met with accomplished head coaches – such Budenhozler, the 2014-15 Coach of the Year, Jackson, Mike Brown – as well as strong assistant candidates in San Antonio’s James Borrego, Boston’s Jay Larranaga and Miami’s Juwan Howard.

Eric Koreen: Per Raps, Green fell one point short of Lowry’s franchise record of 22 points in a quarter, set on Dec. 2, 2015 in Atlanta. Green’s seven threes were, of course, a franchise record for 3s in a frame.
Tania Ganguli: Some fun facts about Kuzma’s big first quarter from the Lakers. He’s the first Laker with 20 in the first since Kobe in 2011. Only six players have had multiple 20-point quarters this season: Steph Curry, James Harden, Damian Lillard, Paul George, Kemba Walker and Kyle Kuzma
Scott Agness: Good time for the Pacers to play the Mavericks. They won 111-99 led by 19 points from Tyreke Evans. Sabonis had 16/11. Most starters played ~25m with another game tomorrow night vs Hornets.
