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 […]
The Knicks currently find themselves in the same position they were in last year after their first two playoff games: Down 0-2 with injuries to important players (Chauncey Billups and Amar’e Stoudemire last year, Iman Shumpert and Amare Stoudemire this year). After two agonizing, close losses to the Celtics, Knicks fans couldn’t help but wonder […]
Well, at least they didn’t lose by 30… The Knicks showed more life than they did on Saturday, but it still wasn’t enough. The Miami Heat defeated the Knicks Monday night, 104-94, to take a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference First Round series. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 30 points and nine rebounds. […]
Saturday’s destruction was tough to watch. It stung for hours after, and truthfully, it still does. As a Knicks fan, coming off a loss, I’m always thinking of ways for the Knicks to improve and alter they’re chances of moving onto the next round. One strategy that has been talked about a lot, but Woodson […]

Already going into the game with news that defensive stalwart Tyson Chandler might not be at 100% due to the flu, the Knicks were completely massacred by the Miami Heat in Game 1 of their Easter Conference Round 1 series, 100-67. LeFlop James led the Heat with 32 points and four steals. New York […]
With just over six minutes left in the third-quarter, rookie Iman Shumpert collapsed to the ground, grabbing his left knee. Shumpert was dribbling the ball up the court and while trying to crossover to get by Mario Chalmers, Shumpert planted awkwardly with his left leg. Like most significant injurys, Shumpert’s came without any contact. He […]
WOW! That was amazing. Incredible job, @meir21. Let’s go Knicks!
Karma could be on the side of the Knicks, since the last time that they played the Heat in the first-round they went onto play the Spurs in the Finals. In addition, during that 1999 season, the NBA also had a lockout shortened campaign, that saw the team hurt by the injury to Patrick Ewing.
The New York Knicks have been blessed with an extremely deep team – even Mike D’Antoni stretched his usual 8-9 man rotation – but with the playoffs starting, the rotation will shrink… The question is, who will make the cut?
