New York Knicks
Golden State Warriors
As the Knicks went for their first 2-0 start since 1999, it was clear that the team struggled despite commanding a lead against the Warriors through the first quarter last night.Even with a lead, Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony each had difficulty getting into an offensive flow, as Landry Fields led the Knicks with 13 points in the first half. The Warriors slowly begin to fight back (despite struggling on offense themselves), forcing a 64-64 tie at the end of the first half.Based on the scoreboard, it could have been anyone's game. But anyone watching the game knew full well that the Knicks were clearly off their game, and it was only a matter of time before the Warriors took control, despite playing without star guard Stephen Curry, who sat out with an ankle injury.From the wake of the second half, it was almost as if the Knicks' thorough struggles gave way to wake up the sleeping dragon that was Brandon Rush, who erupted for 19 points off the bench. The former Pa...

The New York Knicks are coming off a blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers 99-82. Just imagine how bad the score would have been if David Stern didn’t block the trade and Chris Paul was a Laker.
Before the game Knicks star Carmelo Anthony told the New York Daily News he thinks Stern should have let the trade go through.
“I thought it would have been good for the...
Apparently Carmelo Anthony wanted to make an already challenging game against the Los Angeles Lakers tonight much more difficult. He thinks David Stern made a mistake by vetoing a trade of Chris Paul to the Lakers and said so after the Knicks loss to the Warriors Wednesday night, reports the New York Daily News. “I…
OAKLAND, Calif. — Tyson Chandler couldn’t stay on the floor, Amar’e Stoudemire couldn’t shoot straight and Carmelo Anthony couldn’t find any of his Christmas mojo.
“The Broadway Bigs’’ were a major flop last night as their West Coast debut was a disaster, doomed by Chandler’s start-to-finish...
According to ‘Melo, the NBA should have let the Chris Paul trade to the Lakers go through, because it would have been good for all parties involved. From the NY Daily News: “Unlike the NBA commissioner, who prevented Paul from going to the Lakers in a trade three weeks ago, the Knicks’ superstar believes it would have benefited everyone had Paul wound up playing in the same...
Despite Tyson Chandler's slow start and Toney Douglas' struggles as a playmaker in the Knicks' offense, it's in fact the lack of depth and many questions surrounding the team's bench that will ultimately bring them down. That is, if the Knicks do not eventually find a balance and receive a boost off the bench.Last season it came from Douglas and the gem that was...
When it was all said and done, Carmelo Anthony torched the Celtics to the tune of 37 points, leading the way to a victory for his Knicks. The game tying three-pointer with about three minutes to go sticks out most, as do the two free throws on the questionable foul called on Marquis Daniels. Without Paul Pierce to check Melo, the burden fell mostly on Sasha Pavlovic and Quis...
Harvard product Jeremy Lin has signed with the Knicks, the team announced Tuesday. Lin, 23, will provide insurance for the Knicks at point guard, where New York is relying on players who are either old, inexperienced or injured. It is unclear how long his stay with the Knicks will last, as he gives them the maximum 15 players allowed. Toney Douglas, who before this season was known...
Off to a 1-2 start, the Knicks are already looking to Baron Davis to provide some help to Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire, even though Davis is at least five weeks away from playing.
Watching the Knicks lose to the Lakers Thursday night left you feeling like Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin.
Instead of reacting to mounting negative evidence by reassuring yourself that the Great Pumpkin was coming, the mantra of "It's still early, things will get better" offered no consolation when Laker after Laker hit easy layups. All of those layups -- and...
