GAME RECAP: Knicks 98, Pelicans 91

*throws roses at Melo’s feet* Well, that was intense, wasn’t it? The Knicks earned themselves a rare win last night with a pulse pounding 98-91 victory over the lowly New Orleans Pelicans, staving off a furious (and potentially job-ending if accomplished) comeback by Anthony Davis and his young western conference squad. Both teams were neck… More

GAME RECAP: Blazers 94, Knicks 90

30 losses. With the All-Star break within spitting distance, the Knicks have done the impossible; they’ve surpassed last season’s loss total, and by doing so, have cemented themselves as an under .500 basketball team that is all but assured to miss the playoffs for the first time in Carmelo Anthony’s tenure as a Knick. There… More

GAME RECAP: Knicks 114, Celtics 88

Hope you enjoyed that, Mr. Gola. After two consecutive losses to the new look Boston Celtics, including a 114-73 December drubbing at home, it was safe to say that Melo and company were looking to right some wrongs last night, and that they did. The Knicks dominated from start to finish, blowing out Rajon Rondo… 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

GAME RECAP: Raptors 115, Knicks 100

53 more games of this. Good god. The Knicks hit up Toronto for the second game of their back-to-back with the Atlantic Divison leading Raptors, and honestly, the biggest difference was the color jerseys being worn. Seriously, stop me if you’ve heard this before. “The Formula” Knicks keep it close to start. Dig themselves a double… More

GAME RECAP: Celtics 90, Knicks 86

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

Kyle Lowry? No Thanks.

Quite simply, the rumored deal between the Knicks and the Raptors involving point guard Kyle Lowry would be a mistake for New York to consummate in any of its proposed iterations. As presented, the trade is basically a variation of the teams’ previous Andrea Bargnani exchange — which I opposed here and here — not… 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
