The New York Knicks have been blessed with an extremely deep team – even Mike D’Antoni stretched his usual 8-9 man rotation – but with the playoffs starting, the rotation will shrink… The question is, who will make the cut?
Less than 24 hours after clinching a their second consecutive playoff berth, the Knicks are making news. All-Star forward Amar’e Stoudemire returns to the starting lineup tonight after missing the last 13 games to treat a bulging disc in his back. Coach Mike Woodson announced today that Landry Fields would head to the bench, in… More
WHAT. A. GAME. In a game that for sure left fans at the edge of their seats, biting off their nails, screaming at their TVs and gasping for air, the Knicks pulled out a huge win over the Bucks in Milwaukee, 111-107. Carmelo Anthony continued his hot streak, leading New York with 32 points and… More
I’m still on overdrive after the Knicks comeback win over the Chicago Bulls today, Easter Sunday. It was a game full of resurrections (D-Rose and Bulls in third, Carmelo and the Knicks in late fourth and overtime). Here’s a special edition of the Three-Man Weave.
Two national TV games versus Orlando. Two Knicks blowouts. Nice. The Knicks defeated Orlando for the second time in as many weeks, as they blew out the Magic 96-80. Tyson Chandler led the way with a solid 12 points and 12 rebounds. He shut down Dwight Howard for the 3rd time this season, holding the… More

The Knicks lost to the Milwaukee Bucks, 100-86, Friday night, at Madison Square Garden, because the defense was, again, not what it needs to be. They allowed the Bucks to shoot 48 percent from the field, which is too high.
The Knicks defeated the Charlotte Bobcats, 91-87, at MSG, to move over .500 (5-4) and improve their record to 2-2 at the World’s Most Famous Arena. After losing by eight points on the 4th, the Knicks were able to pick up the defense to get some revenge against the Bobcats.
The Knicks lost to their division rival from the north, the Toronto Raptors, 90-85, at MSG, in a game they definitely should have won. One excuse some might have for the loss is that Amar’e Stoudemire did not play for the second straight game, as a result of a sprained ankle, but they easily beat… More
