New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-11-10

New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-11-10--G Chris Duhon finally made a field goal Monday after he went 2 1/2 games without one. In fact, he hit two in the third quarter. But with rookie Toney Douglas showing the hot hand (not to mention an ability to raise the tempo of the game and play tenacious defense), coach Mike D'Antoni decided to leave Duhon on the bench in the fourth quarter.

"By all means, I'd rather sit down and let that group see if they can pull it off," Duhon said of being benched.

Duhon, who was 0-for-4 against the Bucks on Saturday and 0-for-6 against the Cavaliers on Friday, was 0-for-3 in the first half against the Jazz. He actually did hit a shot before halftime, but his three was waved off because it came after the buzzer. He then opened the third with a pair of three-pointers to give him some confidence going forward, though he finished the game 2-for-7. He is shooting 25.8 percent from the field this season.

--C Eddy Curry will return to practice on Tuesday after a month-long exile from the team, which ordered him to work out on his own until he was in the proper condition to play without injury concerns. The 7-foot center lost 40 pounds during a summer of conditioning and diet, but a week before camp he tweaked his hamstring and then on the first day of camp tore a muscle in his calf.

Curry has since put in two-a-day workouts with team trainers, and those who have seen him say he has lost considerably more weight. Last season, when he appeared in just three games because of knee and conditioning issues, he ballooned to as much as 360 pounds.

It is doubtful that Curry, even now that he's in shape, will be ready to play right away. The more likely approach the Knicks will take is to have him practice this week to get re-acclimated with the team and then work him into the system during a four-day break between games after Friday's game against Golden State.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Everyone here is disappointed: coaches, players, management, I haven't talked to him but probably the owner, everybody, fans, we're all disappointed. But that isn't going to turn it around. It's going to take the players to turn it around. I hope they have that kind of inner strength. But when you get started off the way we have, nobody is going to be helping you. Nobody." -- Knicks president Donnie Walsh on the team's 1-7 start.
