I wouldn’t be the first person to observe that the Knicks’ remaining schedule is brutal. Most people point to the two obvious metrics: opponent’s records and road games. Of the Knicks’ remaining 24 games, only nine are against teams that currently have a losing record. In addition, the Knicks only have nine home games left on the schedule. The full extent of how bad the road ahead is for the Knicks goes beyond records and road games though.
The Knicks played their best game of the season and defeated the Miami Heat by 20, 112-92. Raymond Felton starred for the Knicks and he went for 27 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals. Steve Novak chipped in off the bench for the Knicks with 18 points. Playing without Carmelo Anthony, the Knicks used excellent ball movement to hit an incredible 18 out of 44 three-point field goals.
In just a few hours, the New York Knicks will open their season at home against the Miami Heat. This game was origanlly scheduled to be the Knicks’ second game of the season, but after Hurricane Sandy swept through New York City, Mayor Bloomberg was inclined to canceled the Knicks vs. Nets opening night game at the Barclay’s Center.
Hello, all. Hope you are all doing okay after Sandy ran through the east coast.
In light of the recent weather, both the Knicks’ opening night matchup with the Brooklyn Nets, in Brooklyn, and the Knicks’ home opener against the Miami Heat, are in jeopardy of being postponed.
One of the most interesting plays of the Knicks first preseason games was when Steve Novak dribbled up from the three point line and attempted a floater that rattled in and out. Without any context, this seemed like a meaningless play in a preseason game, but for Knicks fans, the play certainly elicited a response. Many of these responses were imploring Novak to never do such a thing, to stick to what he does best. So does this mean Steve Novak should only shoot three pointers?
As training camp begins and the season is right around the corner, many of the weathered Knicks fans have begun to come out of the woodwork. As a fan myself, I have no doubt let my feelings show to the world (or for all my Facebook friends), in order to keep my sanity during the dark ages of this organization’s fandom.
According to the Sun Sentinel, the Miami Heat’s first road game will be on Friday, November 2nd, when they will face off against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. While the official, full NBA schedule has yet to be released, it’s likely this will be the Knicks’ home opener.
This year’s NBA Playoffs have featured some ridiculous individual performances, the latest one being Rajon Rondo’s monster 44 points, 10 assist and eight rebounds performance last night. While it has been more than three weeks since the Knicks were eliminated by the Miami Heat, one of our own had one of those great performances: Carmelo Anthony’s 41 point explosion in Game 4. Here is a highlight mix I put together from that game. Hope you all enjoy. Happy Belated Birthday Melo!!!
The season that began with a Lockout ended with the Knicks falling to some lock-down defense from the Miami Heat.
The rollar-coaster season the Knicks have endured finally came to an end tonight in a 106-94 loss to the Heat in Game 5 of their first round playoff series. Carmelo Anthony led New York with 35 points and eight rebounds. The Heat were led by LeBron James’ near triple-double of 29 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
In yesterday’s game four victory over the Miami Heat, Baron Davis pushed the ball towards the hoop during a fast break, then proceeded to collapse, while clutching his knee. Earlier in the series, Knicks fans saw Iman Shumpert go down with a torn ACL, so when Boom Dizzle fell to the floor, we expected the worst. Unfortunately for Baron, the worst is what he got.
It’s about damn time.
After more than 11 years since their last playoff game victory, the Knicks salvaged their season at least for another game, avoiding a sweep at the hands of the Miami Heat with an 89-87 win today at Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 41 points and six rebounds while the Heat were led by LeBron James’ 27 points.
