Knicks Face the Best of the West, Harden and the Rockets

After a tough loss in Atlanta on Friday, the Knicks look to bounce back in Texas on Friday. The road woes continue for the Knicks as they head into the unfriendly confines of the Toyota Center. To say the team has struggled in Houston would be putting it nicely. In the last ten seasons, the Knicks have left H-Town with a W just once, during the 2014-15 season. Tonight will be an uphill battle to change that misfortune, as the Rockets will have fresh legs while the Knicks come in…

Knicks Crumble in Second Half, Lose to Hawks 116-104

Despite a nice first quarter from the Knicks, they faltered late to Dennis Schroder and the Atlanta Hawks. The Knicks started out hot in this one scoring 39 points in the first quarter while shooting 76 percent from the field. Courtney Lee led the charge in the first quarter, scoring 13 points on 5-5 shooting. When Kristaps Porzingis hit the bench, the Knicks struggled a bit, allowing the Hawks to creep back into the game. By the time halftime hit, the Knicks maintained a 67-59 lead. The third quarter did…

Knicks Look For Sweet Revenge Against Red Hot Raptors

The Raptors have won four in a row and six of their last seven. Can the Knicks halt their winning ways? Tonight’s Thanksgiving Eve showdown at the Garden marks the second of four matchups on the season between these two teams. The Raptors dismantled the Knicks last Friday up in the 6, 107-84, in arguably the most poorly played game by New York all season. Despite minimizing the amount of turnovers, the Knicks were outclassed offensively and couldn’t find an answer for DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry, who poured in…

Knicks Film School: A Slumping Kristaps Porzingis

After an incredible start to the season, Kristaps Porzingis is caught in a shooting slump. Knicks Film School takes a deeper look into why. Everything is about timing: the timing of a pump fake, the timing of a spin move, the timing of a shot’s release, the timing of a slump. Imagine if Kristaps Porzingis had started the season shooting 25-of-73 from the field? How worried would Knicks fans be? Instead, he got off to one of the best starts in Knicks history, scoring at least 30 points in seven…

The Long, Laborious Road Awaits

The Knicks have played 10 of their first 14 games at Madison Square Garden. Will the front-loaded home schedule hurt them moving forward? This 8-6 start for the Knicks has been nice for a team that was projected to be at the basement of the Eastern Conference this year. There have been some thrilling wins, including last night’s over the Utah Jazz, games in which the Garden has felt alive. I went to the one home game this year that was not remotely close or exciting, against the Houston Rockets,…

Knicks Travel South In An Effort to Score Four

The Knicks take on the Magic in hopes of stringing together a four game winning streak. Coming off of yet another impressive, come-from-behind victory, the New York Knicks are back in action tonight to try for their fourth straight win and seventh win in eight tries. Who thought we’d be here at this point? After the Knicks lost their first three games, the majority of the fanbase was feeling pessimistic, and rightfully so. The Knicks were worse than the Nets, the Knicks can’t play defense, Tim Hardaway Jr. is awful. The…

Enes Kanter: How the Turkish Big Man Has Already Gelled With the New Look Knicks

The starting center in New York has been fantastic during his brief tenure in New York. How has he been so successful, and what is the outlook on his future? The September 25th acquisition of Enes Kanter from the Oklahoma City Thunder was largely overshadowed by the sudden departure of Carmelo Anthony. The huge news of ‘Melo finally being shipped elsewhere combined with the ultra low expectations coming into this season for the Knicks caused fans and media outlets alike to sort of pooh-pooh the Kanter pick up. Some even…

Breaking Down Kristaps Porzingis’ Contract Options

What could KP’s big contract with the Knicks look like? Janis Porzingis made headlines in New York by hinting that his brother might not re-sign with the Knicks: “‘The most important question here is this: What do you really want to achieve in your career? Because money — if Kristaps performs at least on his normal level — is gonna come.’ Janis Porzingis said in an interview in Latvian with Sportacentrs” (According to a translation by Eurohoops.net) Kristaps Porzingis‘ brother is correct: money is gonna come. But how much of it,…

Knicks Look to Keep the Good Times Rolling Against Kemba Walker, Hornets

Kristaps Porzingis hopes to continue lighting New York on fire against the Charlotte Hornets tonight at the Garden. Is it me or is it starting to feel like 2010 again? For you new Knicks fans, a little revisionist history: Amar’e Stoudemire, the “big” free agent from the summer, had just called out his teammates after a six game losing streak. Following that declaration, the team went on to win 13 of their next 14 games. They carried the momentum of Stoudemire lighting opposing power forwards up (sound familiar?) and turned…
