The Knicks came out a bit slow at first, as the Kings went on a 13-2 run to push themselves up to a 10-point lead over 23-12. But the Knicks have changed that, mostly thanks to their increasing defensive intensity. The Knicks went on for 17-2 at the end of the first and at the beginning of the second to move forward. Julius Randle, as he often does, rolled the Knicks into the first with 12 points in the frame.
