Hawks 108, Knicks 107: “Knicks.”

Hawks 108, Knicks 107: “Knicks.”

Fresh off a blowout, New York lost a heart-breaker. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee at Madison Square Garden between New York and Atlanta was an up-and-down affair that ended familiarly for the Knicks: down. A late comeback led to a five-point lead they couldn’t hold, and a last-minute Dennis Schroder three gave the Hawks the win. Jeff Hornacek said he’d shake up the lineup and he did, with Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Ron Baker starting in place of Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) and Courtney Lee (Amenable). What might Horny have been thinking? This. Of the 30 most played lineups in...

What did we learn from Ron Baker's stint as backup point guard?

What did we learn from Ron Baker's stint as backup point guard?

Placed in an uncomfortable situation at the point, Baker showcased some skills. This week brough forth a new, unheralded revelation for many Knicks fans. Derrick Rose's back spasms left the Knicks with a shallow point guard rotation, and the apparent removal of Sasha Vujacic from the rotation left the doors wide open for a change at the third-string point guard position. To top it off, Brandon Jennings was mostly terrible, leaving an opportunity for someone to grab the bull by the horns and get some real minutes in the spur of the moment. Enter Ron Baker, the Shot Maker. With ol' mophead...
