NYK Weekly Report: NYC rivalry begins, life without Kidd, Novakaine is back

Other notes: Rasheed Wallace made a hilarious exit from Sunday's game after 85 seconds of action for yelling "Ball don't lie!" after Goran Dragic missed a free throw following a technical that Wallace disagreed with (VIDEO)... Carmelo Anthony was the leading scorer in all four games last week... Kurt Thomas got four starts in Jason Kidd's absence, but only notched double-figure minutes once and was 2-6 from the field in the four games combined... Marcus Camby hasn't played a minute since being dominated on the boards by Reggie Evans against the Nets last Monday... The team was out-rebounded by more than two in only one game... Ronnie Brewer dislocated his thumb against the Nets, but was in the starting lineup the following game... Pablo Prigioni doesn't play huge minutes or put up big numbers, but he was positive in +/- in every game last week (+28 in 73 minutes last week)... JR Smith was very cold in three of last week's games... Kidd is targeting Wednesday to return from back spasms.

This week's Knicks games: Wednesday @ CHA, Thursday @ MIA, Saturday @ CHI, Sunday vs. DEN.
