Tim Hardaway, Jr. scored 31 points and went 6-of-7 from 3-point range to lead the New York Knicks to a 117-115 win over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

Mitchell got help from Rodney Hood in sparking Utah. Snyder said it was possible, but the decision would be made later.

"We were talking about rebuilding and we got off to a good start because we had a lot of home games", Hornacek said. NY dominated in the paint by outscoring the road team 36-20 and in second chance points, 21-3.

Memphis held on after Courtney Lee was whistled for a technical foul and the Grizzlies won a critical jump ball in the closing seconds. NY almost blew a 10-point lead with about two minutes remaining, and was forced to watch the Jazz attempt - and miss - four potential game-tying 3-pointers in the final 47 seconds.

There is some hope Utah can turn it around now that Rudy Gobert is back on the court. The veteran guard is having his best season, averaging career-highs in points (23.2), assists (5.0), 3-point field goal shooting percentage (.412) and free throw shooting percentage (.912).

While the potential intent remains unclear, the New York Knicks are widely regarded as a franchise that will be active before the 2018 National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Rodney Hood had 18 points, while Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio each scored 17. The 25-year-old will likely face a minutes restriction in the short term, and at this point it's unclear if he'll immediately return to the starting lineup.

Gobert continued to find his groove in the second quarter as his teammates were routinely looking for him through pick and rolls. The Knicks have given up 15.0 second-chance points per game in January, which ranks 28th in the league. Utah shot 50 percent at the half and 38.5 percent from beyond the arc to lead 55-49 at halftime.

Thomas had started 21 of the last 22 games for NY, while Tim Hardaway recovered from a leg injury.

In the fourth, the Knicks would pull away despite a push from Mitchell.

The Jazz rank 13th in points off turnovers per game (17.2) while the Knicks rank 24th in points off turnovers allowed per game (18.2).

"Of course, we're all frustrated", Knicks center Kristaps Porzingis told the New York Daily News after the game.
