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

GAME RECAP – Bulls 82, Knicks 81

I don’t know about you, but last night’s “playoff” game really drained me. And we are only two games through the 82-game slate! If the Knicks are going to play with our emotions like this all year — and we all know that they will do just that — we had all better pick up… More

The score was mostly a sidebar, though, as coach Mike Woodson elected to play Amar’e Stoudemire, J.R. Smith, and Kenyon Martin, each of whom is coming back from various injuries…. More

GAME RECAP – Bucks 105, Knicks 95

After six preseason games, last night’s contest against the Milwaukee Bucks almost felt like a regular season tilt. Whereas Monday night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors served as an extended audition for players seeking one of New York’s final roster spots, Mike Woodson was certainly focused on molding his regular season lineups in Green Bay. Unfortunately, still short-handed,… More

SCHOENE Baloney?

Quantitative analysis is great, isn’t it? I make my living working for [insert name of very well known investment bank here], and I spend my days supplying financial data to institutional investors that guides their investment decisions. Essentially, titans of industry use my data to create projection models for how stocks will perform in the… More
