New York was beaten 95-83 by the Raptors at MSG in the first of back-to-back games against Toronto on Friday.

Meanwhile, forward Metta World Peace is in “another galaxy.”

World Peace responded unusually to questions about owner James Dolan’s meeting with players to inform them that no forthcoming trades or coaching changes would be made.

“I’m not a player, I’m an alien,” World Peace told reporters. “I wasn’t actually there. I was in another galaxy with my galactic friends.”

The forward continued: “My focus is on winning championships. I don’t focus on anything else. Aliens only want to win championships.That’s it. Injuries is not a focus. Trade talk is not a focus. Nothing is a focus. Gluten-free pasta is not a focus, which I would rather have gluten-free pasta. Hey, if I have to have regular pasta. It is what it is. I’m still going to try to win a championship. Nothing will distract me from my focus, my galactic mind.”

World Peace will sit out Saturday’s game due to a sore left knee according to the Knicks’ official PR Twitter account.
