The Knicks beat the Jazz on Friday night, 108-81, which added fuel to the fire to anyone who hasn't been keen on the rumors and reports of New York looking for a Mike Woodson replacement, namely Phil Jackson.

"I don't think it's been fair the way he's been treated all year," said J.R. Smith, post-game. "I think he's done a great job since he's taken over the head job.

"If we're having a bad year, I don't think he should take the blame for all of that. I think some of the players should take the blame for that and we should move on as a unit as opposed to singling people out."

As for Carmelo Anthony, he says he was unaware that Steve Mills met with Jackson.

"As far as me, personally, I haven't heard anything of that nature," said Anthony, after Friday night's win. "So it's hard for me to speak on something I don't know about."

The Knicks play at Cleveland on Saturday night where Lebron James will be in attendance for the retiring of Zydrunas Ilgauskas's jersey.
