Remember when the Knicks drafted Jordan Hill with Brandon Jennings still available? That pick still doesn't look good. Jennings scored 19 points to pace Milwaukee in a 107-80 rout of the Knicks on Tuesday. Amar'e Stoudemire, already a villain in Milwaukee for being involved in a play last season on which Andrew Bogut was hurt, picked up a technical foul in the third quarter. He also had a team-high 19 points. The Knicks, losers of two straight, get Golden State at home Wednesday.
Maybe a repeat performance of last season's 2-19 start isn't out of the question. The Nets fell to the Cavaliers, 93-91, in Newark in the first game of a home-and-home series. Travis Outlaw had 27 points to lead the Nets, who are now 2-5.
The Capitals still have the Rangers' number after a 5-3 comeback win over the Blueshirts. Brian Boyle (twice) and Derek Boogaard had the Rangers' goals.
