Game 5 Recap: Knicks 86, Celtics 92

Fears of a seemingly inevitable implosion are fair at this point. Losing one game, on the road, to a veteran team facing elimination – well, that’s OK. Losing a second game in a row, on your homecourt – scary. Doing so after self-imposed blustering of what-if sweeps and opponent funerals. Unbearable. Yes, despite the Knicks’… More

The Novak/Stoudemire Dilemma

Thanks in part to the frequently injured status of Amare Stoudemire, Mike Woodson has been forced to be very creative in his approach to lineup building this season. Using the talent pool available to him, he’s completely twisted the traditional point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, center lineup into something uniquely special and… More

Game 2 Recap: Knicks 87, Celtics 71

The New York Knicks will head up to Boston with a 2-0 lead over the Celtics. For the second straight game, the Knicks used a big second half, highlighted by stingy defense and efficient offense, to put the Celtics away, and seal the victory.

The Knicks Wall Playoff Roundtable

The New York Knicks have just five games remaining in their 2012-13 regular season campaign. Where the other 77 games went, we have no idea.

In Which I Grant You Permission to Enjoy It

“They may reach the promise land, but, for now, as the Knicks slump towards Portland, it seems they have lost their way and the wheels have fallen off the wagon.” I wrote my last post huddled by the limited candlelight that barely illuminates “Knicks Fan Hell”. You know, that place you crawl into when the… More

Recap: Knicks 95, Hawks 82

Resting on the shoulders of an absolutely torrid Carmelo Anthony and a rejuvenated defense, the Knicks continued their hottest stretch in decades, winning their tenth in a row by using a dominant fourth quarter to blow up a close game. While neither New York nor Atlanta played their best basketball through the first three quarters,… More

The New Insanity

A morale destroying losing streak.  Major injuries to multiple key stars. A reserve guard suddenly putting up MVP type numbers. A surprising seven game winning streak led by some unexpected heroes. Sound familiar? The Knicks’ current winning streak isn’t their only impressive win streak this season, but it’s the one that most reminds me of… More

The Wish List

Well, they’ve done it. The Knicks have clinched a playoff spot. Now I can finally stop holding my breath, I can shave my “they’re-not-in-the-playoffs-yet” beard and I can dump my girlfriend. That last one might not have much to do with the Knicks, but I like to share. Speaking of sharing, now that the boys… More
