GAME RECAP – Knicks 101, Bobcats 91

Now that’s more like it. The NBA season is a long one. You always want to be wary of labeling games as “must wins,” especially so early into the year. But facing the possibility of a fourth straight loss, last night’s rematch with the Charlotte Bobcats was a game the Knicks simply could not afford… More

GAME RECAP – Bulls 82, Knicks 81

I don’t know about you, but last night’s “playoff” game really drained me. And we are only two games through the 82-game slate! If the Knicks are going to play with our emotions like this all year — and we all know that they will do just that — we had all better pick up… More

GAME RECAP – Knicks 90, Bucks 83

The New York Knicks are undefeated! Okay, maybe it’s a tad premature to start getting sized for championship rings, but New York start its 2013-14 season by dispatching the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, 90-83, last night at the newly-refurbish Madison Square Garden.

GAME RECAP – Bucks 105, Knicks 95

After six preseason games, last night’s contest against the Milwaukee Bucks almost felt like a regular season tilt. Whereas Monday night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors served as an extended audition for players seeking one of New York’s final roster spots, Mike Woodson was certainly focused on molding his regular season lineups in Green Bay. Unfortunately, still short-handed,… More

After a thrilling victory Wednesday night against an overhauled Boston Celtics team, the Knicks took the floor last night against the Toronto Raptors in a game that could be quantified in one word: Yuck. Bad shots, defensive lapses, and fouls. Sweet… More

NBA: Playoffs-Indiana Pacers at New York Knicks

It’s the Turnovers, Stupid!

This may sound a little crazy, so bear with me here, but in case you hadn’t heard, the 2012-13 New York Knicks were pretty great on offense. Finishing third in the league in offensive efficiency, the ‘Bockers tallied 108.6 points per 100 possessions while splashing an NBA-record 891 three-pointers. The Knicks’ efficient — dare I say machine-like?… More

Au contraire: In Favor of Bargnani

Yesterday, my esteemed colleague Dan Litvin wrote an exceptionally well-reasoned post about the controversial acquisition of Andrea Bargnani and why it was the wrong move for the Knicks. You should read it. I’m here to tell you why he’s wrong. The Time Value of Bargnani Like many other critics of the deal, Dan believes that the… More
