Turn On The Knicks:
The Knicks were firing on all cylinders early today, leading 59-45 at half. So how did TOK know that a second half implosion was coming? Kevin Smith puts on his chef hat and shows you how to make and when to expect a Knicks loss.
Ingredient #1 – The Almighty Three Ball
I think it’s safe to say that the Knicks are willing to live and die by the three, but there are different ways of knowing when it’s hurting more than it’s helping. Most obvious are the games where they get off to an ice cold start. For example, the Knicks started their atrocious 34-point loss in Indiana by shooting 0-7 from behind the arc. When shots aren’t dropping early, it spells huge trouble for New York. Not only does it leave them unable to establish an offensive rhythm, but it also throws off their game defensively.

Carmelo Anthony has been dealing with soreness in his right knee over the past few weeks and recently had an MRI.
Carmelo Anthony‘s knee injury is being treated carefully but optimistically ever since the Knicks forward left Monday’s game after stumbling to the floor in the second quarter. For now, the team is holding out hope that Anthony simply tweaked his right knee during the win over the Cavaliers. Their best-case scenario is that he will be back on the court soon.
If he is not, the...
CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers have become accomplished at one thing this season, and its not something thats any good.
But their ability to take the wind out of their own sails is clearly unmatched.

Well, chalk up another one to painful memories, as...
