Courtney Lee has created 9 of the Knicks' 11 points so far in the second half. NYK seems to have made the right decision by not trading him over the summer, instead pairing him with Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Knicks have to find a way to slow Toronto on the perimeter. Raps' penetration has helped them start the game 7-for-15 from beyond the arc. They enter play tonight ranked 23rd in 3-point field goal percentage.

Raptors' Dwane Casey on Enes Kanter, who is 3rd in the NBA in offensive rebounds per 48 minutes: "Just one guy, I don't think, is going to box him out by himself because he's like the old-school Rodman, you know. Rodman goes to the boards, doesn't even look for his offensive shot and that's kind of Kanter," said Casey, whose Raptors held Kanter to 0 offensive boards Saturday. "He has that knack of finding you so we have to make sure we give him multiple bodies and he's one of the best of the world at the free throw line of just bulldozing his way in and running over whoever's in front of him to get a rebound. So we've got to make sure we put extra special attention to him at the free-throw line."

On the injury front, Jeff Hornacek said Joakim Noah is sick tonight but he would have been inactive anyway.

The Knicks aren't playing on Thanksgiving but NYK fans who are looking for highlights can find some games on MSG Network. The network is going all-in on Kristaps Porzingis on Thursday with what they are calling, "THANKZINGIS." From 11:30am until 11:30pm on Thanksgiving, MSG Network will have six of Porzingis' top games this year. The third-year forward is fourth in the league in scoring (27.6 PPG) and first in blocks (2.27) entering Wednesday's game against Toronto.

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who is close with Phil Jackson, was asked about Jackson's tenure in New York. "I felt bad for the way things ended," Kerr said at Warriors practice at St. John's University today. "I think Phil did some good things here. Drafting Porzingis and hiring Jeff Hornacek. I think Ntilikina looks like a good player. It feels like they're on a good path right now. It's a hard league, man. Things really have to fall (in your favor), you have to do a good job. But you also have to get some luck. Phil knows that better than anybody. You can be really lucky and inherit Michael Jordan and you can also be unlucky and things don't go your way. It's all part of it. We're all going to have our moments in this league - ups and downs. Phil had so much success as a coach. I don't know, maybe he was due for the down part of it."

Rumor Central: Ron Baker to return soon?

New York Knicks guard Ron Baker has been unavailable to coach Jeff Hornacek since the third game this season because of a sore left shoulder.

After struggling in the 1st 3 quarters Monday, Frank Ntilikina didn't play in the 4th. It was his decision. "Frank's under the weather,'' Jeff Hornacek said after the Knicks' 107-85 victory Monday. "He's been fighting it two, three days now. he just didn't have it tonight. He was fine with it. He actually said, ‘I'm not helping the team now.' Frank's a smart player. He realized he didn't have enough energy. He sacrificed."
