New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-11-24

New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-11-24--C Eddy Curry's minutes continue to increase, as well as his role, but he could find himself on the bench in the next game because of a flagrant foul called against him with 5:21 left in the fourth quarter.

Curry, frustrated after he missed a layup against some physical defense by Kendrick Perkins, shoved guard Rajon Rondo to the floor as Rondo grabbed the rebound. The NBA will certainly review the play, mainly because Curry deliberately pushed Rondo in the back as he was in the air. Rondo fell to the floor but was not injured.

"I hope to not get suspended," Curry said, "but we'll see what happens."

The Knicks might not mind seeing this type of emotion from Curry, however, especially because he rarely showed it in previous seasons, which called to question his passion for the game. But in three games, Curry has already shown some fire, including in his debut Nov. 18, when he went face-to-face with Pacers big man Solomon Jones after the two got tangled up on the post.

Curry played 15:50 against the Celtics and had six points and four rebounds.

--G Nate Robinson's antics in the previous game against the Nets drew the ire of coach Mike D'Antoni, but the next day D'Antoni went right back to Robinson as the first guard off the bench and the 5-9 dynamo played with much more purpose and control. He was also far more effective than he has been all season.

Robinson had 19 points off the bench, with 7-for-11 shooting from the floor, including 3-for-6 from 3-point range. He provided exactly the kind of energy and athleticism -- not to mention scoring -- the Knicks have sorely missed from him so far this season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We didn't use our foul. We were supposed to foul." -- Mike D'Antoni on the final play Sunday, in which his team failed to use its foul-to-give before Kevin Garnett's buzzer-beating winner.
