New York Knicks
Los Angeles Clippers
After watching injuries decimate his roster and put young and largely unproven players in positions of increased responsibility last season, Knicks head coach Mike Woodson made it a point to not let youth be his team's undoing again this year, his first full season at the helm in New York.
So over the summer, Woodson and Knicks GM Glen Grunwald went free-agent shopping with the goal of bolstering their New York lineup with some veteran talent. Suffice it to say they did that, and then some.
"We had nowhere to go, and that wasn't a knock against the guys who we had in uniform," Woodson said Sunday before the Knicks' 88-76 win over Indiana. "We had young players, and this summer we felt it was important to go out and get veteran guys that could play."
New York didn't sign anyone approaching Kevin Willis-Robert Parish territory during the offseason -- Willis played until he was 44 in 2007, the Celtics great Parish until he was 43 in 1997 -- but af...

Fan map of the NBA
In every sport whenever a new season is about to tip off every team has high expectations for their squad. But after the first couple weeks of the NBA season I feel like we can already tell how each team will play out for the rest of the year. In this column I will be talking about the most surprising teams to begin the NBA year, and the most disappointing teams...
Often times, NBA teams like to fill their bench out with players who can score in bunches. Such an offensive boost is necessary when sitting down a team's top scorers.And over the years, the NBA's top scorer from a second unit has been continuously recognized as the league's "Sixth Man of the Year."In the early goings of the season, this NBA campaign isn'...
Donnie Walsh may no longer be with the Knicks, but it is clear that no bridges have been burned with his former employer.
Walsh spoke with New York reporters about the Knicks prior to their 88-76 victory over the Pacers, his current employer, and touched base on a number of topics regarding his old team. Walsh spoke highly about the Knicks’ early success, and more specifically...
The New York Knicks have the best record in the NBA, and no this isn't a typo or a joke. Instead of waiting for the other shoe to fall, lets just appreciate this moment for what it is. The post Temporary Excitement And The New York Knicks appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
Carmelo Anthony had 26 points and nine rebounds, and the New York Knicks bounced back from their first loss of the season, beating the Indiana Pacers 88-76 on Sunday.
JR Smith added 13 points and Raymond Felton had 11 for the Knicks in their only home game in a span of seven games. After falling 105-95 at Memphis on Friday, the Knicks (7-1) go right back on the road to start another...
NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks responded to their first loss of the season by more closely resembling the team that started the season unbeaten after six games. The Knicks used a stifling defense coupled with some poor shooting by the Indiana Pacers, 26 points from top scorer Carmelo Anthony and solid play from several of his teammates to top Indiana 88-76 at Madison Square Garden...
The Knicks bounced back from their loss at Memphis on Friday to beat up on the Pacers. In the first quarter, Knicks veteran Jason Kidd collided with Indiana guard Lance Stephenson. Stephenson’s tooth hit Kidd’s head leaving behind a cut that would require seven stitches and a headband to keep blood out of his eyes while [...]
I love sneakers, and I’ve been called a sneaker-head, but I learned this past weekend that I’m nowhere near the sneaker-head that has come to define the recent explosion in sneaker collecting.
I am to true sneaker-heads what the occasional pot smoker is to Charlie Sheen. I love my kicks, and I can’t resist impulse purchases when I see something I like. But I wear my sneakers...
The Knicks and Nets have things going in the right direction. Both are off to great starts with the Knicks being the last unbeaten team in the league until losing to a tough Memphis squad on Friday.
The 6-1 start is one of the best in team history and they really seem to be putting things together after the last two disappointing first round playoff exits. The team has seen back...
Celtics (12-3) vs. Knicks (7-10)
Saturday, November 17
The Celtics traveled to Madison Square Garden for the the second half of a back-to-back. The Knicks also played the prior night, losing in Houston, 133-130. New York was mired in a five-game losing streak, but dropped each game by no more than four points. They would end the losing streak, defeating a storied division rival...
Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Knicks go down
New York was not going 82-0. That is virtually impossible with the way the NBA schedule is constructed. Going 6-0 was surprise in itself for a team that seemingly lacked offensive fluidity and was nominally good at defense, but hardly elite.
In the first weeks of...
After falling victim to frustration in their first loss of the season, the New York Knicks will look to channel their emotions a little differently.
They'll try to bounce back Sunday against the Indiana Pacers, who have struggled to score but seemed to find some answers following some offensive tweaks.
The Knicks (6-1) return home hoping to start a new winning streak while...
Earlier today, Knicks' Coach Mike Woodson wouldn't discuss how he plans on re-acclimating Amar'e Stoudemire back into the lineup when he returns from injury next month. Will he be a starter? With New York off to such a strong start, the team needs to be careful not to rock the boat. Whose minutes would Stoudemire potentially take away?Of course, with his return nearly...
