In their last 114-108 win in Denver, Zach LaVine was brilliant scoring 36 points on 14-24 shooting from the field and 4-9 from deep. DeMar DeRozan had 26 points with 7-21 from the field and 12 free throws without a miss.
Derrick Jones Jr. and Ayo Dosunmu scored in double-digits off the bench with 16 and 10 points.
The Knicks started the season 5-1 but recent losses have cost them to drop to 9-7.
Tom Thibodeaux's side has lost 3 of their last five barely winning the last game against the worst team in the league the Houston Rockets.
The Knicks needed a last-quarter comeback to defeat the Rockets 106-99.
Alec Burks scored 17 of his 20 points in the last quarter to hand the Rockets their 14th consecutive loss.
Evan Fournier had 19 for the Knicks while All-Star forward Julius Randle was near a triple-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists.
