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.

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.

Shumping the Playoffs

Much has been made of the downward spiral of JR Smith in these playoffs. Fortunately for the Knicks, there has been a corresponding upward trend by Iman Shumpert. As the saying goes, “When one door closes, another door gets dunked on by Iman Shumpert.” Let’s start with Smith. Much like the Knicks themselves, JR started… More
