The Previews: Seth/Posting and Toasting
Knicks fans have had precious little to cheer for much of the past decade. The marquee names were there. The attention and marketing were all there...
BEST OF MAXIM
The New York Knicks are 21-10, sitting pretty in the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference, enjoying a season in which Carmelo Anthony is an MVP candidate and his team is viewed widely as just a Miami Heat injury away from a shot at the NBA Finals.
They are also, thanks to the wide gulf between the two conferences and a statistical anomaly that's unlikely to last, an utter illusion...
Knicks 114 Magic 106
Sloppy, sluggish Knicks came back to straighten up and fly right to get a solid win 114-106. Carmelo Anthony put the team on his back in the 4th period with a total of 40 points for the entire game. This win gives the Knicks 2 in a row and ties them for 1st in the entire Eastern Conference. They now have a record of 23-10 and lead the Atlantic by...
Carmelo Anthony scored 16 of his season-high 40 points in the fourth quarter, helping the New York Knicks outlast the Orlando Magic 114-106 on Saturday night.
J.R. Smith added 18 points off the bench and Tyson Chandler had 14 points and 12 rebounds.
The Knicks have won two straight overall and four in a row over the Magic, dating back to last season.
Arron Afflalo and Jameer Nelson...
The Magic knew what was coming.
Once Carmelo Anthony got the ball at the top of the key he was going to run a pick and roll. Once he had the ball in his hands, that is when it was unclear what he might do. That is when Josh McRoberts or Arron Afflalo or Nikola Vucevic, who all took turns guarding Anthony down the stretch, were stuck on that dreaded island. That is when they were...
Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points, J.R. Smith kept up his surge with 20 and the New York Knicks snapped the San Antonio Spurs' seven-game winning streak with a 100-83 victory Thursday night.
Steve Novak added 15 points and Tyson Chandler had 10 points and 14 rebounds to help the Knicks bounced back from consecutive losses by dominating the final period against the Spurs, who...
ORLANDO -- Carmelo Anthony scored 40 points, including 16 in the fourth quarter, as the New York Knicks beat the Orlando Magic, 114-106, Saturday night at Amway Center. The Magic (12-21) lost their eighth consecutive game, their longest losing streak since the 2005-06 season. Anthony, who hit 14 of 29 shots, also had six rebounds and six assists. J.R. Smith added 16 points and...
Tim Duncan and Carmelo Anthony, power forwards for their teams, will be the matchup when the San Antonio Spurs face the New York Knicks.
The two men probably won't guard each other with their coaches possibly switching their centers (Tiago Splitter for S.A. and Tyson Chandler for N.Y.), but they'll have plenty to do with how the other performs this game.
San Antonio Spurs (26-8) vs. New York Knicks (21-10)
It is Thursday night. Two top NBA teams are playing each other with inter-conference positioning on the line. There are plenty of stars to drive up ratings. And the game is in New York?
So why is TNT on its New Years' break?
Usually when a game like this happens it gets the full national television treatment...
