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 […]


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 […]


GAME RECAP: Thunder 123, Knicks 94

Merry Christmas, everyone. Today our Knicks hosted Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 2:30 PM matinee, and despite the final score, the first quarter gave us reason to believe this would at least be a competitive game. Defensive issues aside, New York played loose, moved the ball, and went blow for blow with […]


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 […]


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. For a team that was averaging 107.9 points per game coming into last night, they were far from an offensive juggernaut. New York shot poorly, struggled to find a rhythm for most […]


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 […]


The Inevitability of Chris Smith

nep·o·tism noun \ˈne-pə-ˌti-zəm\ Favoritism shown or patronage granted to relatives, as in business. If you’re reading this, chances are, like me, you’re the type of Knickerbocker fan that deconstructs, debates and obsesses over each and every personnel move that the franchise makes. Call me overzealous, call me fanatic, just don’t ever say that my proclivities […]


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 […]
