Turn On The Knicks:
New York Knicks
This was certainly an entertaining past week of basketball for these Knicks since the last bench report. Since my last installment of my bench report, the Knicks saw wins against the Wizards, Cavs, and their latest coming last night against the dreadful Detroit Pistons. Their only loss coming in their Sunday matinee game against the Heat, a game they very much could, and should have won. So overall, 3-1 record in the past week is very plausible. As for the Knick bench, in this past week we have seen the reemurgence of some pretty important bench players like Jason Kidd, and the continued consistency of both Amare Stoudemire and J.R. Smith.
This weekly bench report has gotten pretty interesting to me, due to the fact that, and especially with Melo’s recent knee injury, the Knicks have been starting guys who would normally be bench players. Guys like James White and Kurt Thomas have seen the starting lineup this past week, and I still for the life of me do not know why. Overall in t...

This was a game of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Tonight was a microcosm of what is good and bad of the New York Knicks. The injury depleted Pistons team, defending their home court, got down early in the first half to only take the lead in the 3rd period. If you think that was the end of the game you are very wrong. The Knicks came back from a 10-point deficit...

The game started well, as the Knicks opened up a 15-point lead due to Amar’e Stoudemire’s early dominance in the paint. However, once STAT came out of the game, Detroit ended the second quarter on a 13-4 run. Unfortunately for New...

According to head coach Mike Woodson, the tumble could have been avoided if he had...
