In last night's 118-110 Knicks win over the Celtics, Mike Bibby quietly recorded one of his better outings since he signed with New York.Amongst four different twenty-plus point performances by his teammates, Bibby filled in for Baron Davis (who sat much of the game with a stomach bug), dishing out 6 assists in 27 points, committing no turnovers. What's more, the veteran guard had an efficient plus/minus of +16 while on the court vs. the Celtics. Bibby's refreshing performance was one of the strongest recorded by a Knicks point guard since Jeremy Lin went down with an injury. Stomach bug or no stomach bug, Davis has struggled all season long. He has in no way, shape, or form come close to the player the Knicks had hoped he'd be.

Woodson called out Melo from the start

The New York Knicks are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now for the second time this season. The first time, it was because of Jeremy Lin, this time it’s because of head coach Mike Woodson. As soon as Mike D’Antoni quit, Woodson stepped in and went to work. Since he took over as coach, the Knicks have gone 13-5 and no one really wants to see them in the playoffs. From...

Knicks 118, Celtics 110: Nightmares of Novak and Smith

I’m 20 minutes away from nightmares about Steve Novak and J.R. Smith, Ray “No Limitations” Allen didn’t play because his swelling returned and the Celtics’ bench was outscored 55-2. But at least watching Carmelo Anthony and Paul Pierce do super-scorer things was enjoyable, Avery Bradley hit five three-pointers himself (his shooting success is getting a little out of hand...

Comments from the other side - Knicks 4/18

 I know that comments aren't as much fun to read when we lose, but these are worth it just to show how absolutely pathetic Knicks fans are.  I've never seen so much complaining about the refs.  Even the TNT announcers mentioned the fact that the Knicks were so physical that the refs could probably call a foul on them every time down.  Yes, the Celtics shot more free throws...
