J.R. Smith may have finally secured himself that starting role he's worked so hard to earn. Smith's numbers weren't blow-you-away incredible, but his three first quarter triples helped ignite a Knicks offense that had struggled to find a spark in opening periods so far this season.
 
He finished with 12 points and seven rebounds.
