Rookie phenom Luka Doncic and the Mavs weren't going to let the Knicks' losing streak stop on their watch, as New York fell 114-90 on the Madison Square Garden floor Wednesday night. >> Box score
Things to know about Wednesday's game
1) The main storyline was Doncic's first taste of the Garden, and it didn't begin the way he wanted it to with an airball from three. But, of course, he made up for it was a big dunk a couple possessions later. Doncic would finished with 16 points on 7-of-18 shooting along with eight boards and five assists in a pedestrian night for the NBA Rookie of the Year hopeful.
2) On the other hand, the Knicks' first-rounder in Kevin Knox had a better night on the scoreboard than Doncic. He finished with 17 points on 6-of-16 from the field, while collecting five rebounds, one assist, and one steal.
3) Enes Kanter finally made his way back onto the court tonight, and he was so thankful that he kissed the Knicks logo at center court. In a little over nine minutes, Kanter had five points, two rebounds, and one assist.
4) With Frank Ntilikina and Emmanuel Mudiay out, Trey Burke saw 32 minutes on the floor and made the best of it. He had 16 points and collected three assists, one block, and two steals in an all-around solid game. Burke continues to show he can be a good facilitator for the Knicks when they need him to be.
5) The Knicks came into the game with the worst record in the NBA, and furthered that with their 11th straight loss.
