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: Mavericks 80 , Knicks 92

I’m liking 2014 already. After the much discussed late-game shenanigans in Houston friday night, the Knicks ended their Lone Star State trip on a high note with an impressive 12-point win over the Dallas Mavericks. If you’ve been following my recaps up to now, you’ll know that I believe the Knicks follow a type of formula […]


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 – Spurs 120, Knicks 89

Yeah, so, about yesterday’s matinee game at the Garden…YIKES. Consider yourself lucky if you skipped the affair, instead opting for some excellent NFL action, because after San Antonio went on a 10-0 run about three minutes into the first quarter, that was pretty much all she wrote as the Knicks (now 2-4) were obliterated by Spurs. New York […]


No Tyson? No Problem! Four Things the Knicks Must Do

The New York Knicks need a roster overhaul. That much was clear even before Tyson Chandler was injured in Tuesday night’s dreadful loss to the lowly Bobcats, but the non-displaced fracture suffered by the team’s center has cast an even more unflattering light on the Garden brain trust’s personnel decisions to this point. Against Charlotte, coach […]


It’s the Turnovers, Stupid!

This may sound a little crazy, so bear with me here, but in case you hadn’t heard, the 2012-13 New York Knicks were pretty great on offense. Finishing third in the league in offensive efficiency, the ‘Bockers tallied 108.6 points per 100 possessions while splashing an NBA-record 891 three-pointers. The Knicks’ efficient — dare I say machine-like? […]


Knicks’ New Organizational Mission? Stay the Course. (For Now.)

“Don’t get too comfortable.” That was the writing on the wall after last week’s managerial purge as Steve Mills, the man who presided over the Garden’s dark times, the era of “He Who Shall Not Be Named,” was surprisingly reanimated to replace Glen Grunwald. For any other NBA franchise, a front office shakeup needn’t signal […]


Why World Peace Makes Sense Now

I’ve seen quite an array of reactions in the past 24 hours on the Knicks’ decision to sign Queens native, and St. John’s alum, Metta World Peace (formerly Ron Artest) to a two-year deal made official yesterday out in the desert of Las Vegas. Some fans have been clamoring, since June of 1999, for World […]


Looking Ahead

After the Knicks were eliminated by the Pacers in the second round of the playoffs, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth about the bleak future faced by this team. To be fair, there are plenty of reasons for concern. The team is old, the oldest in the league. The team was beset by […]
