Knicks G Smith embarrassed over team effort Tuesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) Knicks guard J.R. Smith has criticized his teammates for their lack of effort in the first half of a Tuesday night loss to Milwaukee. He called it "really embarrassing" that Derek Fisher had to remind them at halftime to play hard.

The Bucks had embarked on a 30-9 run in the second quarter en route to a 117-113 win.

"Coach challenged us ... to go out there and play hard and see what happens," Smith told ESPN. "For some reason, it's something we have to be reminded of, to play hard, which is really embarrassing at some point because you're a professional athlete. People pay a lot of money to come watch us play. Competing shouldn't be an issue."


Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith each score 28 in Knicks win Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and guard J.R. Smith shared the team lead for scoring Sunday, each putting up 28 points in their team's 109-93 win over the Nuggets.

Smith's 28 points represented a season high as the guard started and played a season-high 37 minutes in the win. He also chipped in four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block Sunday.

Anthony was coming off a 46-point effort Friday but took his fewest amount of shots since the regular-season opener, going 10 for 14 from the field and 2 for 3 from three-point range. He also kicked in nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 38 minutes as the Knicks snapped a seven-game losing streak.

They'll look for two in a row when they face the Bucks Tuesday.

Knicks SG J.R. Smith: 'We stopped competing' Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) The NBA season opener is certainly a bit early to lose that competitive edge, but Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith claimed that's exactly what happened to his team Wednesday night against Chicago. The result was a 104-80 trouncing.

"When we stopped competing at the end of the third, fourth quarter, we could all tell," he told the New York Post. "[The Bulls] felt as though they smelled blood in the water. We just couldn't do anything about it. ... We put our heads down and tucked our tails, and we can't do that at home."

The Knicks trailed by 10 at halftime, but their deficit swelled to 35 in the fourth quarter as the fans booed. Smith, who scored just six points on 2-of-8 shooting in 22 minutes, added that the team is struggling to grasp the new triangle offense.

"I don't think we can be just thinking, thinking, thinking," he said. "Right now it's time to react. If somebody just kicks your mom's door and takes what they want, I think you have to react, you can't sit there thinking what should I do next."

Things don't get any easier for the Knicks, who travel to Cleveland for a Thursday night game in which LeBron James makes his regular season return to the Cavaliers.
