Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks couldn’t solve their offensive woes while falling to Tobias Harris and the Detroit Pistons.

  • New York Knicks 89 (1-2)
  • Detroit Pistons 102 (3-1)

  • The Palace of Auburn Hills, Detroit, MI

What Jeff Hornacek is going to want to do with the game tape to his team’s 102-89 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night is either burn it or use it to scold his players. 

The New York Knicks were absolutely dreadful at The Palace.

Tobias Harris led all scorers with 25 on 8-of-12 from the floor. He also added 10 rebounds and three assists. Marcus Morris helped matters with 22.

For the Knickerbockers, who were sloppy both offensively and defensively, Carmelo Anthony led the way with 24 points on 8-of-18 shooting. Kristaps Porzingis scored 18 while Derrick Rose poured in 19 while looking good, again, getting into the paint and finishing near the rim.

New York’s 40.7 percent shooting from the floor as a team was just too much to overcome in this one. New York trailed by nine at the half and although they hung around for much of the second half, couldn’t take the lead.

They won’t be able to sulk on it, however, as a quick turnaround is happening now for a home date against the Houston Rockets in Manhattan on Wednesday night.
