New York Knicks
Thanks, NBA. The Knicks won game six against Boston on Friday, and on
Sunday, head back home to face the Indiana Pacers. Not even fair for
Indiana either, as the Pacers were in Atlanta on Friday knocking the
Atlanta Hawks out of the playoffs as well. Couldn't we push the game
back to Monday? No matter, the New York Knicks face the Indiana Pacers
tomorrow, and instead of giving you a BS review, I wanted to give you a
few things to watch out for during this series, but before that...
Some simple stats....
Offensive Efficiency: New York (3rd overall)-Indiana (20th)
Defensive Efficiency: New York (18th)- Indiana (1st)
Pace: New York (28th)- Indiana (25th)
Along with some of the scores from previous regular season matchups....
Now, let's talk about some of things to watch for:
The Shooting Woes Of Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith
Knicks avoided a game seven against Boston, but that wasn't because of
their two leading scorers. J....

During Game Six of the 2013 Eastern Conference NBA playoff game between the Celtics and Knicks, the fans at Boston’s TD Garden began taunting Carmelo Anthony with a chant of “Honey Nut Cheerios”. This chant is, of course, in reference to comments Kevin Garnett “allegedly” made about Carmelo’s wife, LaLa Vazquez. Good ol’ Boston, keeping it classy. Article found on...
Well it seems like the people of Boston have recovered from the bombing tragedy that shocked the city some weeks ago, and are ready to reclaim their antagonistic status in pro sports.
During the first quarter of Game 6 of the Boston Celtics first round playoff match up against the New York Knicks, the fans at TD Bank Garden, joined in the unified taunting of Carmelo Anthony, by...
Back in January, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett made the term “Honey Nut Cheerios” into a whole new thing after he spent some time trash-talking Carmelo Anthony about his wife, La La Vazquez.
Flash-forward to today, Celtics fans decided to serenade Carmelo with those exact words as he made his way to the Knicks bench area during game six of their first-round playoff series...
Carmelo Anthony did not have a "hot spot" on the floor against the Celtics.
The New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers will renew their postseason rivalry beginning with Game 1 on Sunday at 3:30 ET on ABC.
This marks the seventh postseason meeting all-time between the Pacers and Knicks. The teams split the previous six meetings, 3-3.
The interesting thing about this matchup...
After Jordan Crawford allegedly made a derogatory comment about his wife LaLa, Carmelo Anthony admitted his celebrity spouse has every right to be upset over being brought up repeatedly.
"I would be upset too if I were her," Anthony said on Friday. "She always gets thrown into the mix of the Boston Celtics series. So I would be upset. She's her own person and...
Le Batard really loves Miami. Which makes this weird.
Dan Le Batard didn't vote for LeBron James for NBA MVP: deadsp.in/mRNt1SL
— Deadspin (@Deadspin) May 6, 2013
Ok so when it broke this afternoon that LeBron received 120 out of 121 votes for NBA MVP, a witch hunt started to figure out who the hell voted for Carmelo Anthony.
Now we know.
It was the Miami...
New York eliminated Boston as Celtics fans chanted 'Honey Nuts Cheerios', trying to rattle Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony.
I've found myself questioning why Danny Ainge would bring Jordan Crawford to Boston. The Boston Celtics are a franchise that prides themselves on great players who take responsibility for their actions both on, and off the court. As the Celtics made a decision to stay away from the pompous taunting tirades of their immature opponents, the seldom used Jordan Crawford shows his...
MIAMI (AP) -- The writer who did not choose LeBron James of the Miami Heat as the NBA's Most Valuable Player believes Carmelo Anthony "meant more to his team" this season.
Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe says Anthony made the New York Knicks relevant again by leading them to their first division title in nearly two decades. Washburn's explanation was published...
Carmelo Anthony scored 21 points and the New York Knicks held on after blowing most of a 26-point lead to beat the Boston Celtics 88-80 in Game 6 on Friday night and advance in the postseason for the first time since 2000.
Iman Shumpert scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half, when the Celtics cut a 75-49 deficit to four points. But Anthony made a jumper to give New York an...
New series, same old story. You can finesse the narrative however you want, it boils down to the cold hard facts: Carmelo Anthony's name may as well be Buck, and he comes to chuck. If he's hitting, the Knicks are reeeeally hard to beat (he was basically NBA Jams "On FIRE" for his 10 games in April, averaging 36.9 ppg on 53.6% shooting, including a mind melting...
Happy Monday to all. Lebron was officially named as the Most Valuable Player. We all know this was imminent and likely. What was the question is whether he will be the first unanimous one. Unfortunately, he wasn’t. He was close, though, as he snagged all but one first-place vote. The Akron native thought it was a NY-based person who gave the dissenting vote, since that lone vote...
(Eds: Adds details and quotes. With AP Photos.) By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Basketball Writer Talk is cheap in these NBA playoffs, and it seems as if everyone wants in on the act.
As the stakes grew in the first round, the venom being spewed became ever more toxic. Superstars are jawing at bench players. Reserves are picking fights with superstars. Coaches are accusing opponents of being...
Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat
Game 1 -- 7 p.m./TNT
LeBron James was quite clearly MVP.
There really was no doubt about it. When I was on with 103.7 The Game in Lafayette, La., on Friday, they asked me if you could make any argument to vote for anyone aside from LeBron James. I told him you could make an argument for Carmelo Anthony perhaps . . . but it was not a good one...
