STAT, ‘Melo, Please! You’re both right!

With the 3-10 Knicks preparing for battle in Los Angeles against the wayward member their doomed “big three,” the fingers are pointier as the ship be sinkier. Specifically, after New York’s horrid  102-91 loss to the Trailblazers on Wednesday night in Portland — the club’s sixth straight defeat — Amar’e Stoudemire criticized his comrades for… More

GAME RECAP: Trailblazers 102, Knicks 91

The New York Knicks have lost games to the Wizards, Pistons and Bobcats this month, so you can forgive me if I wasn’t optimistic about their prospects against the 13-2 Trailblazers in Portland last night. Portland, of course, is exactly the kind of team that gives the Knicks fits; they’ve got a speedy, scoring point guard in Damian Lillard,… More

GAME RECAP: Pacers 103, Knicks 96

To quote the great Babu Bhatt, you are a bad man, Paul George. A bad, bad man. The Knicks (3-8) lost a heart-breaker to the Pacers (10-1) last night, 103-96, and it’s fair to ask if things can possibly get any worse. Going in, this game had serious potential to be something close to a human… More

The Knicks Wall Roundtable

Now that we’re 10 games into the New York Knicks’ 2013-’14 campaign, it seems like a good time to take stock of where the team stands. Fortunately, we’ve got some of our staff’s best and brightest on the case, so without further ado, welcome to this season’s first installment of The Knicks Wall Roundtable: 1.   … 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

GAME RECAP – Rockets 109, Knicks106

Woo boy. That one sure hurt. The worst thing about losses like these isn’t the actual loss itself, but more so how the little things, had they gone differently, stood between New York and a victory. Fresh off a 95-91 road win against the Atlanta Hawks, the Knicks fell to 3-5 last night on the young season, coming up… More

How Did the Knicks Get Here?

On April 2, 2008, after seven terrible years in the wilderness, the New York Knicks, in most unKnicksian fashion, went full-stop on their parabolically accelerating shit show and shocked the world by implementing a complete gut rebuild. In the interest of transparency and, more importantly, to help manage expectations, Donnie Walsh steeled Gotham’s faithful fans, promising just… More

GAME RECAP – Spurs 120, Knicks 89

Yeah, so, about yesterday’s matinee game at the Garden…YIKES. Consider yourself lucky if you skipped the affair, instead opting for some excellent NFL action, because after San Antonio went on a 10-0 run about three minutes into the first quarter, that was pretty much all she wrote as the Knicks (now 2-4) were obliterated by Spurs. New York… More

Andrea Bargnani

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
