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… More

GAME RECAP: Raptors 115, Knicks 100

53 more games of this. Good god. The Knicks hit up Toronto for the second game of their back-to-back with the Atlantic Divison leading Raptors, and honestly, the biggest difference was the color jerseys being worn. Seriously, stop me if you’ve heard this before. “The Formula” Knicks keep it close to start. Dig themselves a double… More

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… More

GAME RECAP: Knicks 121, Magic 83

Don’t commit turnovers. Inside-out ball movement. Shoot threes. Make threes. Playing under .500 ball clubs helps greatly, but this was the formula that led last year’s 50 win team to success on most nights, and despite Woodson’s best attempts to handicap himself, it’s clear that the denizens of Madison Square would prefer to have that old… 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: Trailblazers 102, Knicks 91

The New York Knicks have lost games to the Wizards, Pistons and Bobcats this month, so you can forgive me if I wasn’t optimistic about their prospects against the 13-2 Trailblazers in Portland last night. Portland, of course, is exactly the kind of team that gives the Knicks fits; they’ve got a speedy, scoring point guard in Damian Lillard,… More

GAME RECAP – Rockets 109, Knicks106

Woo boy. That one sure hurt. The worst thing about losses like these isn’t the actual loss itself, but more so how the little things, had they gone differently, stood between New York and a victory. Fresh off a 95-91 road win against the Atlanta Hawks, the Knicks fell to 3-5 last night on the young season, coming up… More

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… 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
