ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Acie Law IV, Guard Josh Childress, Forward Jeremy Richardson, Center Zaza Pachulia, Forward Solomon Jones, Guard Salim Stoudamire, Guard Mario West, Guard Speedy Claxton (injured).PLAYER NOTES:
--Center Al Horford was a menace on the boards and matchup nightmare for the Knicks, who played small ball all game.
--Forward Jeremy Richardson piled up another DNP-CD (did not play, coach's decision), backing up Joe Johnson, which is hard to fathom since Johnson averages 41 minutes a night.
--Guard Mario West tried his hand at guarding Jamal Crawford but finished with the same results.
--Forward Josh Smith hasn't seemed like himself lately, struggling to score the ball and with his all-around game.
