Lee, Porzingis lead Knicks past Grizzlies, 99-88

Lee, Porzingis lead Knicks past Grizzlies, 99-88”

Hardaway Jr. will be re-evaluated in two weeks but he has begun a treatment and rehabilitation plan for the stress injury in his lower left leg. He will be evaluated on December 19, but there's a chance that he could be sidelined well beyond that initial evaluation. So he's hopeful Tim Hardaway Jr.'s "stress injury" won't derail the season.

If Wednesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies was any indication, it might not be that hard.

Almost every lineup change associated with Hardaway's absence worked out well for NY against Memphis. Lee's season high is 26 points.

The New York Knicks will have star forward Kristaps Porzingis back in the lineup against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

NY kept a safe lead from there and when Memphis trimmed it to 88-82 with about five minutes remaining, Lee scored in the lane and Porzingis followed with a basket and a 3-pointer to push it back to 95-82.

"We got off to a slow start", Hornacek said.

"Offensively, we got stagnant and just watched", Grizzlies interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. If New York (12-12) sputters with Hardaway out, team president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry might choose to unload veterans at the trade deadline with an eye toward the draft.

Kristaps Porzingis revealed he had a stress fracture when he played in Spain four years ago and remembers only missing "a couple of weeks".

Courtney Lee buried a 3-pointer just as the first half clock was expiring to lock the game at 49-49.

"There's a reason when Steve Mills talked about getting Tim [over the summer]", Hornacek said recently.

Now Hornacek and the coaching staff will have to figure out how to make up for Hardaway's scoring and playmaking for the foreseeable future.

Porzingis was just 3 for 11 for six points in the first half, but the Knicks rallied to tie it at 49 going into the break on Lee's 3-pointer.

Thaddeus Young scored 20 points to lead seven IN players IN double figures as the Pacers routed the Knicks 115-97 on Monday night.

The Knicks outscored the Grizzlies by a margin of 76-56 during the final three quarters of the 11-point victory. Last week, Lee had a simple explanation for his recent offensive surge.

"It's not good for us at all, " Porzingis said. Tim's played great for us so far. I'm sure we'll find ways to win games.

Of course, the Knicks also will rely more heavily on Porzingis.

Porzingis, though, doesn't necessarily see it that way. "It just locked up", he said. "Yeah (I wanted to go back in), but I can't do nothing about it. Take me out, take me out". But the Knicks, while not wanting to rush their franchise cornerstone back earlier than what would be appropriate, needed him with Hardaway, the team's second-leading scorer out of action, too. It's one that could determine whether they're playing for a playoff spot in April - or for pingpong balls.
