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

Knicks vs Bulls

GAME RECAP: Knicks 83, Bulls 78

The Knicks were so brutal tonight that they almost broke my will to write prose. Here, instead, are some attempts at Shakespearian Knickspearian Sonnets (Iambic Pentameter be damned!), haiku’s, and limericks (with some sparse prose) that describe just how brutal the Knicks are: The Knicks cannot defend a pick and roll Mike Woodson is still utterly… More

Knicks vs. Cavs blood

GAME RECAP: Cavs 109 Knicks 94

In a big night for the NBA, Indiana beat Miami 90-84 on NBA TV. That’s a big national game, assuming you’re one of the 24 people that actually gets NBA TV. I don’t get it and have to watch on illegal totally legal online streams. It’s very annoying. I wish the NBA would make these… More

GAME RECAP: Celtics 114, Knicks 73

The Knicks lost today, but things aren’t so bad. In fact, in their last three games, the Knicks sport a .666 winning percentage. Extrapolated out over the course of a season, the Knicks are a 55 win team! And yeah, they lost by 41 points, but things could be worse! Case in point, one need only… More

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… More

GAME RECAP – Knicks 101, Bobcats 91

Now that’s more like it. The NBA season is a long one. You always want to be wary of labeling games as “must wins,” especially so early into the year. But facing the possibility of a fourth straight loss, last night’s rematch with the Charlotte Bobcats was a game the Knicks simply could not afford… More

GAME RECAP – Timberwolves 109, Knicks 100

You know what stinks? Going to the movies and forking over $12.50 for a ticket, just to figure out the surprise ending 15 minutes after the show starts. Last night at the Garden, only it took 12 minutes get a sense of how the Knicks’ 109-100 loss to the Timberwolves would end up. Confounded by a dreadful… More
