Adam Zagoria's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
One of the keys to the Knicks first 2-0 start since 1999-00 has been their ball movement. They rank 12th in assists
at 22.5 per game.
Of course, it helps having three veteran point guards in Ray Felton, Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni.
"They like passing the ball," coach Mike Woodson said after the 100-84 win over the Sixers Sunday. "That is what they have done in their career. They also have the ability to score the ball. It is truly a double threat for our ball club."
Felton even joked that maybe they're moving the ball "a little too much."
"As long as everybody is sharing the ball we'll take turnovers over passing," he said. "IF we're passing to each other and we turn the ball over we would rather do that than taking bad shots."
In the win over the Heat, the Knicks had five guys with at least 3 assists and two with more than 6. J.R. Smith had six and Felton had nine.
"I just have to keep making plays to find them, keep getting those guys the ball," said Smith, who went for 20 in the Philly win.
