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: 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 […]


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 […]


The Knicks Wall Roundtable

Now that we’re 10 games into the New York Knicks’ 2013-’14 campaign, it seems like a good time to take stock of where the team stands. Fortunately, we’ve got some of our staff’s best and brightest on the case, so without further ado, welcome to this season’s first installment of The Knicks Wall Roundtable: 1.    […]


For Knicks, Spacing Out Is a Good Thing

Last season, New York’s third-ranked NBA offense was fueled by small lineups, great floor spacing and record-setting three-point shooting. Through the first few games of this season — in some cases due to necessity, if not by design — the formula had changed. Canadian import Andrea Bargnani was inserted into the starting lineup and Carmelo Anthony was […]


How Did the Knicks Get Here?

On April 2, 2008, after seven terrible years in the wilderness, the New York Knicks, in most unKnicksian fashion, went full-stop on their parabolically accelerating shit show and shocked the world by implementing a complete gut rebuild. In the interest of transparency and, more importantly, to help manage expectations, Donnie Walsh steeled Gotham’s faithful fans, promising just […]


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 […]


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 […]


Knicks Must Defend the Rim! (And the Threes, too.)

Mike Woodson is on-record that one of the New York Knicks’ goals this season is to be a top-10 defensive team in the NBA. It’s a lofty goal, especially when one considers New York’s current roster and the franchise’s general aversion to team defense — at least in recent memory. Ask the coaching staff about […]
