1. Ball Movement


The Knicks knew they would not be able to get a win tonight by relying purely on isolation basketball. The team moved the ball freely, creating open looks for shooters in the corners and easy layups and dunks both in the half court sets and in transition.  
The award for Pass of the Night goes to rookie guard Toure' Murry, who got fancy with the ball before dishing off a smooth pass to a driving Kenyon Martin for an easy hoop. New York ended up with assists on 73% of their baskets, up from their season average of 56%.
