Recap: Knicks 106, Suns 99

An afternoon game that began with some wonderful basketball nearly turned sour before the Knicks were able to salvage a win over the Phoenix Suns. Thrice the Knicks built big leads and tip-toed on the edge of turning it into a blowout, only to have the Suns fight back into it behind some nice execution […]


Recap: Knicks 108, Wizards 87

This had the potential to be a trap game – the Knicks, coming off an impressive win in Milwaukee, the Washington Wizards coming off their first win of the season. It would’ve been all too easy for the Knicks to cruise into and through this game, only to meet some hungry Wizards, clinging to their […]


Recap: Knicks 88, Pacers 76

It was not the prettiest game, in some aspects, hardly anything to be proud of, but the Knicks improve to 7-1 with an 88-76 win over the Indiana Pacers this afternoon.

The Knicks and the Nets concluded their preseasons tonight with a surprisingly entertaining, competitive game in Long Island at the Nassau Coliseum. After a bumpy start, a strong second quarter, followed by competent basketball in the second half and a – dare I say – “gritty” overtime, the Knicks pulled together a final win to […]


The Knicks’ Spacing, Shooting Guards, and 15th Man

Despite their numerous options, their multitude of weapons, the Knicks were a below average offensive team in 2011-12. Although they played at the fifth fastest pace in the league (nearly 96 possessions per game), they were 19th in offensive efficiency, averaging 101.4 points per 100 possessions. Needless to say, this isn’t what the Knicks’ front […]
