Baron Davis scored a season-high 18 points on his 33rd birthday, JR Smith had 23, and the New York Knicks surged into a tie for seventh place in the Eastern Conference by routing the Washington Wizards 103-65 on Friday night. Carmelo Anthony and Steve Novak also had 18 for the Knicks, who could now be looking at a playoff preview when they host second-place Miami on Sunday. The Knicks tied Philadelphia after the 76ers lost earlier Friday to New Jersey, and New York holds the tiebreaker for the No. 7 seed. Anthony was well off his NBA-leading average of 32.4 points through his first five games in April. But he only played 29 minutes as the Knicks narrowly missed their second 40-point victory under interim coach Mike Woodson.

Shumpert finishing his rookie season strong

Iman Shumpert is almost falling into the clichéd story of guys who were told they wouldn’t succeed and then showed up the world by proving them all wrong. I’m not going to say the New York Knicks rookie guard is a raving success, but he has done better than most people thought, and he’s definitely on his way. When he decided to forego his senior season at Georgia Tech and...

New York Knicks: Finding A Way In Big Spots

The New York Knicks can be infuriating to watch at times. This season has been a bizarre roller coaster of about five different teams, all of which are deeply flawed but unquestionably talented.

2011-2012 NBA Regular Season: John Wall Alley-Oop Dunk On Baron Davis

OFFICIAL GAME THREAD: Knicks vs. Wiz

So it looks like we will likely need about two wins to secure a playoff birth and tonight is as good a night as any to get one of those wins. We are playing against the wizards who are on a 2 game winning streak after having lost 5 straight. The Wiz are a dangerous team mostly because of their style of play (perimeter shooting) and because they have nothing to lose. We are 8...
