New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-12-02

New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-12-02--There was no freezing-out of Danilo Gallinari for this game. The redshirt rookie, who some nights doesn't seem to get enough shots, was a one-man arsenal with 27 points and hit 10 of a team-high 19 field goal attempts. Gallinari, the NBA's leader in three-pointers with 54, made 6-of-12 from downtown and was noticeably far more involved and active at both ends of the floor.

"Being aggressive, that's what I have to be every time," Gallinari said. "As long as I am aggressive, positive things come out every time. I have open shots and my teammates are finding me open every time."

Just as important as his scoring is Gallinari's efforts on the glass (team-high 10 rebounds) and on defense (two blocked shots) in 36:11.

"I want to be a complete player," he said. "I don't want to be a shooter or just an offensive player. I want to play defense and offense and be aggressive everywhere. ... And that's what I did tonight."

--Perhaps in Chris Duhon's struggles, D'Antoni will look to veteran Larry Hughes to transform from being a scorer to a passer. Hughes dominated the ball in this game, but in a far more positive way. He had 10 of his 12 assists in the first half and set the tone for what was an impressive amount of ball-movement by the Knicks, who finished with 31 assists on 47 field goals in the game.

Hughes did score 11 points (4-for-11) and in doing that, he eclipsed the 10,000-point mark of his career.

"It's great," he said of the milestone. "I've been around for a while and I enjoy playing this game. I've got some more in me so I just want to keep going. I'm not done."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Mike's an extremely bright coach. Whether they have a winning or losing coach, he's still a really bright coach. In this business, you've got to have players." -- Steve Nash on D'Antoni's tough start with the Knicks.
