Recap: Heat 106, Knicks 91

Sometimes, the other team is just better. The Knicks played hard tonight, but bad defense and a subpar game from Carmelo Anthony weren’t going to get the job done against the defending champion Heat. Miami won by 15 points, behind a combined 52 points from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. From the get-go, the Knicks… More

Knicks vs. Cavs blood

GAME RECAP: Cavs 109 Knicks 94

In a big night for the NBA, Indiana beat Miami 90-84 on NBA TV. That’s a big national game, assuming you’re one of the 24 people that actually gets NBA TV. I don’t get it and have to watch on illegal totally legal online streams. It’s very annoying. I wish the NBA would make these… More

For Knicks, Spacing Out Is a Good Thing

Last season, New York’s third-ranked NBA offense was fueled by small lineups, great floor spacing and record-setting three-point shooting. Through the first few games of this season — in some cases due to necessity, if not by design — the formula had changed. Canadian import Andrea Bargnani was inserted into the starting lineup and Carmelo Anthony was… More

Knicks Blow Out Magic… Again

Two national TV games versus Orlando. Two Knicks blowouts. Nice. The Knicks defeated Orlando for the second time in as many weeks, as they blew out the Magic 96-80. Tyson Chandler led the way with a solid 12 points and 12 rebounds. He shut down Dwight Howard for the 3rd time this season, holding the… More

Knicks Coast Past Atlanta, 99-82

Well that was easy. Tonight, the Hawks came into Madison Square Garden with less energy than a middle aged man at a Justin Bieber concert. The Knicks dominated from the tip off and cruised to a 99-82 victory. The ball moved well all night and multiple Knicks contributed to the scoring. Jeremy Lin and Steve… More
