Knicks get a hot start but finish cold against the Jazz

Fueled by the win over the Bulls, the New York Knicks had a hot start this afternoon. With 3 minutes left in the first quarter, Kristaps Porzingis already had 14 points, as many as all the points scored by the Utah Jazz. But the hype ended soon.

Up by 13 points, the first quarter was the only one won by New York, as the Jazz slowly came back, took the lead in the 3rd and stormed the Knicks in the last act to win 114-109.

Carmelo Anthony and Porzingis scored each 28 points. Anthony added 9 rebounds while the Latvian sophomore grabbed 8 boards and blocked 2 shots.

Derrick Rose scored 12 of his total 18 points in the final quarter, including a couple of 3 point plays. He had 8 assists but also 4 turnovers. His former Bull team mate, Joakim Noah, had only 4 points and 5 rebounds and with less than 6 minutes on the clock he made a turnover that Rodney Hood turned into a three pointer to put the Jazz up 96-89.

The Knicks fell 2-4 after losing the second straight game at home and will have a three day break until Wednesday when they return to the Garden to play the Brooklyn Nets.
