Knicks 100 Nets 97
The Knicks came into the Barclays tonight on a mission to stomp the Nets hearts out and get some revenge. Then, the game started and everything went out the window. Knicks looked sluggish and slow. Their defense was horrible to start as Tyson picked up to two quick fouls and had to leave the game very early. This caused the Knicks interior defense to be very small and weak, reminding me of the D’Antoni years.
TheTale of two quarters: The Knicks started to chip away the lead, 16, 14, 11, 9, and then saw the light at the end of the tunnel. The Knicks in total, hit 7 three pointers in the half and Melo did what Melo has done all year…score. He single-handedly got them back in the game with pure heart and his jumper. The Knicks eventually cut the lead to 4. They were very lucky to get back into the game as it was slipping away from them.
Notes: Steve Novak on the floor for a long period of time did not take any shots. The Knicks have to figure a way to get Novak involved, as when Novak goes the Knicks are hard to stop.
The Knicks came out of the 3rd like most games, on fire and focused. They cut the lead and then took it from the Nets. However, the Nets regained the lead as the Knicks got caught in defensive lapses and quickly went down by 10 again in the middle of the 3rd. Raymond Felton picked up his 4th foul and had to leave the game. If it was not for the three ball, the Knicks would have been down by 20. JR smith drained a jumper at the end of the 3rd to cut the lead back to 5 and keep the Knicks in striking distance.
The 4th started and the game turned into a never ending odyssey. I have seen a lot of games in my life, but this one was incredible. I am not sure where to start.
Here I go; Melo lit it up as he is a stoned cold assassin. Jason Kidd hit big three after three and JR Smith played hurt almost the entire game and actually got hot in the 4th. JR’s falls to the floor along with collisions with opposing players physically shook him, but he gained a new found respect from me.
In the end, Melo had 45 points and Kidd hit a clutch three pointer with the foul. However, he missed the free throw and gave the Nets a chance to win the contest twice, but they could not prevail. So much to say about this game and this team, but I need a drink. Wow, what a game. Rivalry is in full effect. Knicks 100 Nets 97
Notes: JR Smith took a hard foul to the floor and looked to have a back issue the rest of the night. Don’t be surprised if he takes a game or two off.
Gerald Wallace is called “Crash”. He earned that name. Gerald is a menace on the court in a bad way. Bodies pile up around him and I am sure some Knicks players will miss the Lakers game or two because of his reckless play.

New York Knicks point guard made the worst attempt shot of the season, and possibly the worst in NBA history, during the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's game at the Barclays Center against the Brooklyn Nets.
Felton had an open look and took the shot, but to say it was a little off would be an understatement, as it went straight up in the air about 20 feet.
The Knicks have been on a complete roll this season. After winning 112-106 in MSG November 9, 2012 against Carmelo Anthony’s old team the Denver Nuggets. This improved their home record to 8-0 and their overall record to 15-5 which tops all teams in the Eastern Conference.
Some people believe the Knicks would be a good team this season, but not a serious contender...
So, it's probably not a stretch to say that quite a few pro basketball players aspire to be rap stars.
Such is the case with New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert.
Shumpert recorded a song proclaiming his love, affection and devotion to his team and talks...well, raps about his teammates and their skills. And while the sentiment is admirable, the singing...
Injured Knicks point guard Iman Shumpert has released his own Knicks anthem over GOOD Music’s “Clique.” Thoughts? I like Shump the rapper but can someone explain to me exactly what Knicks tape means?
MR BIG SHOT

Every once and awhile, even NBA players can hoist up a shot or two that can make us belief that we could hoop in the association.During Tuesday night's Brooklyn Nets/New York Knicks game, check out Raymond Felton attempting to get a shot away in the 4th quarter with the shot clock winding down.Watch as Ray loses control of the ball and sends it straight up into the air:
Old man Jason Kidd is at it again. The New York Knicks trailed the the Brooklyn Nets basically the whole game last night until the closing 25 seconds when Kidd hit a controversial three pointer. Well at least to announcer Jeff Van Gundy it was controversial. Jeff claimed that Kidd kicked out his right leg in order to draw a foul call against the defender. I'm going to...
This great Wednesday morning is filled with good basketball stories. We had the one handed baller, two huge dunks by Blake Griffin against the Bulls, Minnesota player throwing down a fast break 360 dunk, Mike D'Antoni yelling at the media, and Jason Kidd hitting a controversial game winner against the Nets. Might as well add one more to the mix. Check out the video below...
It would appear that the New York Knicks are for real.
After raising some eyebrows by starting the year on a hot streak, the Knickerbockers have not slowed down much. Currently sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings, New York appears like the real deal in no small part thanks to Tyson Chandler.
The Knicks’ center is making the team a true contender in the East with his tenacious...
J.R. Smith absolutely blew up Gerald Wallace today during the Knicks 100-97 comeback win over the Brooklyn Nets. Gerald came down the lane for a rebound and J.R. was having none of it, so he decided to stick it to Wallace for no good reason. The result was Wallace on the ground in a great deal of pain.

Knicks enter the Barclays Center for the second time this young season. The Nets got the upper hand in the last match-up with an overtime win. NY and Brooklyn battled back and forth in an evenly matched game in November, but NY ran out of gas in the extra period and the Nets went home with a hard fought win.
This time around NY is firing on all cylinders...
NEW YORK -- Mike Woodson has enjoyed some solid victories in his brief stint as the head coach of the New York Knicks, but none quite as emotional and as exciting as Tuesday night's win in the Battle of the Boroughs.
