Knicks vs. Blazers, the first game of 2013. Tonight will also be the first time Amare Stoudemire hits the floor for the Knicks this year. To prepare you for tonight’s game, I give you the following reading/watching.
The Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire tandem has not worked well, thus far. As a duo, they have underachieved ever since they were brought together to restore the troubled Knickerbockers to the top of the NBA’s totem pole.
Saturday’s destruction was tough to watch. It stung for hours after, and truthfully, it still does. As a Knicks fan, coming off a loss, I’m always thinking of ways for the Knicks to improve and alter they’re chances of moving onto the next round. One strategy that has been talked about a lot, but Woodson has yet to implement is to play Carmelo Anthony at the four, Amare Stoudemire at the five, but not at the same time.
Amar’e Stoudemire is off to a slow start, to put it lightly, this year. His struggles have been documented on this website and across the Knicks blogosphere, in pieces like this one by Jared Dubin.
Amare Stoudemire has started the season taking a plethora of long-jumpers, rather then closer, higher-percentage shots, and even though he has gotten off to a slow start, statistically, I think he will have another fantastic season.
Good Evening Folks!
Tonight, the New York Knicks will host the Utah Jazz.
This will be the first and only visit to MSG for the Jazz this year, and this is the second game of a back to back for the New York Knicks.
I’m not sure if we will ever be able to beat them.
I would rather play the Celtics, Heat, Lakers, or Spurs, instead of playing the Caveliers.
They make us look slow, stupid, and fat. They out-hustle us, they out-assisted us, and they out-scored us.
After a feel-good win against the New Orleans Hornets, the Knicks will now have a chance to retaliate against the Caveliers Friday night.
Last time the Knicks and Cavs played, the Cavs out-hustled, and out-played the Knicks. Hopefully Friday night will be different.
Toney Douglas stepped in for an injured Chauncey Billups and played great.
He shot 10 for 13 from the floor, including 4 for 6 from behind the line. He finished with 24 and 5 assists.
After a disappointing loss to the Orlando Magic, the New York Knicks will get right back at it Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
The Knicks will host the New Orleans Hornets in what will be the Hornets’ one and only visit to the garden this year.
The New York Knicks are for real.
After a stunning come from behind win against the Eastern Conference elite Miami Heat you can’t help but think the Knicks won’t continue to play as they did tonight.
Tonight the New York Knicks will face off against the Miami Heat.
This is the first game that the Knicks have Carmelo Anthony against the superstar trio in Miami.
Anthony gives the Knicks another lights-out scorer, but will he and Amar’e Stoudemire be enough to overcome Miami’s LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh?
