Randle shoots over Magic at MSG white jerseys

After blowing them out on Friday night in Florida, the Knicks fell to the Orlando Magic on Sunday, 110-104.

Here are the takeaways…

1. Orlando got off to a 9-3 start, but the Knicks were hot from the perimeter, knocking four three-pointers early to tie things up at 12. Things remained knotted up for the majority of the rest of the quarter, primarily because Cole Anthony – who averages 12.8 points per game in his young career – had 15 points. New York hit seven of 13 threes in the first, and led 29-27 after the first 12 minutes.

2. The Magic went on a 5-0 run to start the second, but the Knicks responded with an 18-2 run of their own, including three huge dunks by Mitchell Robinson. Orlando made a comeback, though, going on a 16-4 run of their own to cut their deficit to just one point. But at the half, the Knicks led 57-52. Julius Randle had 14 points and seven rebounds, while Derrick Rose knocked three of four from three.

3. In the third quarter, the Magic regained the lead after trailing by as many as 13 in the second quarter, but New York held on for an 80-74 lead through three. In the fourth, though, the Magic opened the quarter on a 15-2 run to lead 89-82 – the Magic’s lead got up to eight with less than 5:30 to go. Rose knocked two big three-pointers to get the Knicks to within four, but Terrance Ross went off in the fourth quarter, scoring 22 points in the period, including a three-pointer that put Orlando up nine. The Knicks tried for a comeback, but missed eight straight three-pointers to end the game.

4. After the first quarter, the Knicks hit just six of 35 shots from behind the arc (17.1 percent). The Knicks shot 35.4 percent from the floor, while Anthony finished with 29 points and a career-high 16 rebounds.

5. Randle finished with 30 points and 16 boards, while Rose dropped 23 off the bench. But Randle, RJ Barrett, and Evan Fournier combined to make just 16 of their combined 52 shots (30.8 percent).


What’s next

The Knicks will be back at the Garden on Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. to host the Philadelphia 76ers.
