Carmelo Anthony stood at his locker, shaking his head back and forth like a man who couldn't believe what he had just seen.
Mike Woodson may make another lineup change before Tuesday’s game at Detroit. The Knicks (3-6) have used four different starting lineups in the first six games. “I gotta go back and re-evaluate things,” Woodson said. “I’m going to continue to shuffle and do things that I think are right by our team to try to find the right combinations to win.”That may mean removing J.R. Smith from the starting lineup. The reigning Sixth Man winner has started the past two games for the Knicks, including struggling mightily on Saturday, finishing 3-for-18 from the field.
NEW YORK — The chants started in the third quarter. They weren’t very loud and didn’t pick up much steam. But for the second time in three home games, Mike Woodson was serenaded with a brief “Fire Woodson” chant from the Garden faithful. This one came in the middle of a 20-point loss in which New York allowed Atlanta to shoot 56 percent from the field. “When that happens defensively, we’ve got to figure out who we are and right I don’t know who we are,” Woodson said after his team fell to 3-6.
NEW YORK — It wasn’t very family friendly, but J.R. Smith found a succinct way to sum up his awful shooting night on Saturday. “Excuse my language but I was playing like s—,” he said. “I played terrible. I’ve been playing terrible since I got back and I wasn’t happy about it.”

Kenyon Martin believes in the no- layup rule and the credo of thou shall not question the head coach. The former is self-explanatory but Martin felt the need to address the latter after it was reported that he was upset with head coach Mike Woodson over playing time.
