Boxscore


Allonzo Trier led the Knicks with 24 points and 10 rebounds off the bench and Damyean Dotson scored 17. Enes Kanter was din double double with 16 points and 14 rebounds. Kanter, Dotson and Trier were the only Knick players that shot at least 50%.

The Knicks took an 15-7 lead early in the first quarter, then fell and trailed by 16 in the second. The Pistons kept the advantage and took it with them in the fourth twice before cooling their engines just enough to allow the Knicks to cut the lead to single digits.

“Credit to their defense. They really competed hard, especially on the ball. They made it tough on us. I thought when we did get open shots, we didn’t shoot it well.”

David Fizdale

Blake Griffin scored 30 points while Stanley Johnson and Reggie Jackson added 21 buckets each for Detroit (11-7) who have lost only three games at home.

The Knicks are now 7-15 and will play the Sixers tonight in Philadelphia.
