Kevin Knox had a strong performance in his second NBA game with 17 points on 7-for-14 shooting (3-for-4) off the bench for New York. "I just want him to keep building his confidence, keep competing at a high level. I'm still on him tough about his defense because I see more there that he can do," David Fizdale said. Knox struggled with his shot in the Knicks' last 3 preseason games and went 4-for-16 in NYK's opener. "I got some wide-open looks the last few games. Today I got some good looks," Knox said. "The difference is I was making them tonight."
