The Knicks' new lineups worked well against Portland but New York couldn't hold a 10-point second half lead, falling 118-114 to the Blazers. The Knicks got 32 points from Tim Hardaway Jr. but allowed Portland to hit 46 percent from behind the arc. The Knicks, who've struggled on defense for much of the season, have lost six in a row.

Allonzo Trier's t-shirts and sweatshirts will be available at https://represent.com/allonzo for a two week period ending December 4, or until they sell out. Proceeds from sales will benefit the Win program, which helps homeless mothers and their children. Established in 1983, the organization has roughly 1,200 units of transitional housing which provides shelter for more than 4,700 people. It also focuses on solutions for the many causes of homelessness by helping women improve their job skills, life skills and health.

Allonzo Trier, the Knicks' two-way guard, was raised by a single mother. He said it was important to partner with an organization that helps single mothers and their children when choosing where a portion of the proceeds from his clothing line would go. "I am excited to be working with Represent and Win to support single mothers and their children in New York," Trier said in a statement. "This city has embraced me since the moment I got here and being able to give back to this community in a way that acknowledges my mom and all she has done for me means everything to me."

A portion of the proceeds for Allonzo Trier's "Bui1t 4 This" apparel will benefit Win, the largest provider of shelter and supportive housing for NYC's homeless women and their children. "With his generous support for families in need, Allonzo Trier is showing that he knows how to contribute to the team to help New York win," said Christine Quinn, President and CEO of Win. "More than 60,000 New Yorkers will spend the holidays in shelter, and the majority of them are women and children. Money raised through apparel sales will help homeless families get the support and services they need to break the cycle of homelessness."

Enes Kanter on starting at center for the Knicks against Portland: "We just need to win the game. First unit, second unit, lead the second unit, whatever it is we just need to go out there and win games. That's the most important thing. Obviously coach is always trying to do something to figure out what's best for us and we'll see how that works." Earlier in the season, Kanter said the right things about coming off the bench, but it was clear that the idea didn't sit well with him. Asked about the possibility that David Fizdale may change the lineup again, Kanter said, "We just lost five in a row, man. (Fizdale) needs to try to find the best fit for us. That's why we all respect him. We all respect his decisions. He's the coach. He's the head coach. He's going to make moves and for us as players we just need to not complain, just go out there and play our game."

Mitchell Robinson will be out of the starting lineup for the foreseeable future because he was getting in early foul trouble, interrupting his rhythm and the rhythm of the group. David Fizdale was asked if he has any regrets over starting Robinson. "No, no, heck no. That's what it's about. That's exactly what it's about. We have to learn that, we have to see that. That's what all of this has been. Who can do what? Who can handle what? What's the best scenario for him to grow? So if I never threw him out there, how would I know? And I don't like looking back saying I should have done this, I should have done that. So I really felt like it was worth it. And now we know and we just set it up this way now. and that's why I said as we get to 20-25 games, I can start figuring out how we're going to move forward and get a solidified, closer to a solidified group."

On his starting lineup changes, David Fizdale says he wants to see how different players perform in different situations at this point in the season. He says he hopes to have a consistent starting lineup at the 20-25 game mark (part II): "I've got to put these guys through some stuff so they can learn and grow from it and not just say, ‘oh he's not good at that right now. This isn't necessarily his strength right now. So let's keep him away from that,'" Fizdale said. "I don't think that's player development. You've got to go through getting beat up and learning and doing again and doing it again. Over that time you grow. The suffering part is tough. If you don't do it well you lose. That's part of it. We're going to just keep growing from the experiences."

On his starting lineup changes, David Fizdale says he wants to see how different players perform in different situations at this point in the season. He says he hopes to have a consistent starting lineup at the 20-25 game mark. "We're trying to learn. We're trying to learn them, see what they're capable of, what they can handle," Fizdale said. "What's their strengths, what's their weaknesses, who they play well with. We didn't know any of these guys, really, getting them all together. I didn't for sure. My staff didn't. So once we got them together we had to start figuring out what fits and who can handle what. And so that's really what this has been about. So hopefully we can start honing in on something we can start saying is what we're going to go out with."

Knicks guard Trey Burke has signed with Roc Nation as he enters free agency this summer. After being out of the NYK rotation earlier this season, Burke has scored 55 points in 55 minutes over the last two games for New York.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Knicks allow 44 points in the first quarter and 132 overall in a loss in Orlando. New York has dropped five straight and is struggling on defense. Barring a significant roster change, the defense will probably be an issue all season. Mitchell Robinson, Frank Ntilikina and Damyean Dotson are the club's top defenders, but haven't played significant minutes of late. Robinson starts but has been in foul trouble and is inexperienced. Ntilikina is a great defender but is inconsistent on offense.
