Recap: New York Knicks 106, Philadelphia 76ers 110

The picture painted itself: The New York Knicks were down seven points, battling, with all their might, a Philadelphia 76ers team that is actively trying to lose games this season. The Knicks had just cut the lead to two points with two minutes remaining, but folded on themselves again; they allowed Thadeus Young a wide… More

GAME RECAP: Knicks 89, Pistons 85

I’m sorry, but am I actually recapping a win? This is weird. I almost don’t know what to do right now. The Pistons (14-21) had dropped six of their last seven games coming into last night’s affair, while the Knicks (12-22) had just danced a Texas two-step, winning two out of three down in the… More

GAME RECAP: Mavericks 80 , Knicks 92

I’m liking 2014 already. After the much discussed late-game shenanigans in Houston friday night, the Knicks ended their Lone Star State trip on a high note with an impressive 12-point win over the Dallas Mavericks. If you’ve been following my recaps up to now, you’ll know that I believe the Knicks follow a type of formula… More

Super-Teams and the New York Knicks’ Future

In an interview with NBA TV recently, Carmelo Anthony called LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh “smart” for teaming up together in Miami. The interview with Anthony and Ahmad Rashad only just aired, but it was filmed earlier in November when the New York Knicks were 3-5. Anthony praised James, Wade, and Bosh, and… More

INT. MODEST HOUSE IN THE NEW YORK CITY SUBURBS Stacey, our heroine, is a 39-year-old woman who writes recaps for an awful professional basketball team. We find her sitting in a comfy chair in the den of her house, staring at her TV in disbelief. Her laptop is positioned in front of her on a… More

STFU!

Back in March or April of my junior year of high school, our English teacher got very sick and was replaced by a substitute. The sub was everything my teacher was not — young, energetic, maybe even a little attractive. She’d start class by telling us which song from the drive to work was stuck… More

GAME RECAP: Knicks 121, Magic 83

Don’t commit turnovers. Inside-out ball movement. Shoot threes. Make threes. Playing under .500 ball clubs helps greatly, but this was the formula that led last year’s 50 win team to success on most nights, and despite Woodson’s best attempts to handicap himself, it’s clear that the denizens of Madison Square would prefer to have that old… More

Recap: New York Knicks 113, Brooklyn Nets 83

It wasn’t long ago that fans and observers were excitedly talking up the potential of a New York Knicks-Brooklyn Nets rivalry. During the summer, both teams had built, or at least maintained, what appeared to be talented, deep rosters, who jibber-jabbered back and forth about one another. They exchanged barbs about who would “run” the… More

GAME RECAP: Clippers 93, Knicks 80

Pass the pie. I dunno man, this was a tough loss to swallow. For all intents and purposes, the Clippers really didn’t play well. For a team that was averaging 107.9 points per game coming into last night, they were far from an offensive juggernaut. New York shot poorly, struggled to find a rhythm for most… More
