New York Knicks
San Antonio Spurs
If I told you New York Knicks star forward Carmelo Anthony finished a game with nine points, three assists, and two turnovers on 3-of-12 shooting, one would assume the Knicks would have probably been blown out.
That’s why that is an assumption, in the past the Knicks might have been defeated with a low performance from “Melo”, but on Thursday in the AT&T Center, Raymond Felton (25 points), J.R. Smith (17 points), and Jason Kidd (14 points) picked up the scoring load for Melo as the Knicks defeated the Spurs 104-100 to remain the NBA’s only undefeated team at 6-0.
The Spurs had built a 12-point lead with 7:14 remaining in the fourth quarter, but you know how your car can run out of gas? Well that happened to the Spurs on Thursday night.
“There’s a reason why they’re 5-0,” said Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich after the game, “they played well enough to win, but we ran out of gas. The guys really busted their butts, I was proud of them, but they just didn’t have enough ...

In the early goings of this NBA season, the Knicks are off to what is their strongest start in years. The team's new winning ways can be largely attributed to Carmelo Anthony, who has emerged as an M.V.P. candidate while representing one of the league's very top scorers.On Thursday night, Anthony displayed other reasons as to why this is truly his year, aside from his ability...
The biggest question in the NBA that begs to be answered right now is ‘are the New York Knicks for real?’
We know they were one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference, but are they one of the best teams in that group?
The difference as slight as it might be is giant in scope.

By the middle of the third quarter, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks seemed to be focusing as much of their energy at the officials as they were at the opposing players. Every time the Grizzlies got the ball, they were intent on pounding the ball at Anthony in the post, victimizing the de facto power forward with one of their twin big men, Marc Gasol or Zach Randolph.
This was the...
New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith says he partied too much last season.
“I’m not going to lie, the New York City nightlife pretty much got to me,” Smith said via the New York Post Thursday morning before scoring 17 points to help the knicks defeat the Spurs 104-100.. “I was going out pretty much every other night and not focused on the task at hand.”
Smith added that...

The Knicks — yes, the New York Knickerbockers — are 6-0, which is the most surprising record early this NBA season. How are they doing it? Well, Carmelo Anthony, unencumbered by sharing touches with Amar’e Stoudemire, is scoring more and back to grabbing rebounds at a career-high level — he had 12 Thursday night against a formidable...
Basketball, particularly high level basketball, is ostensibly a half-court game. You can try to push the pace and you can try to score in transition, but the majority of your points will come in half-court sets.
Particularly late in close games, offense and scoring becomes more about exploiting matchups and creating plays when defenses begin to lock in.
The Magic knew with...
The KnicksJournal.com team was in Orlando to watch the Knicks and Magic rumble at the Amway Center on Tuesday night.Coincidentally enough, the most rumbling came from Magic fans, who were seemingly very excited that their team stayed in the game as long as they did.As fate would have it though, New York fans came out in force as the Amway Center seemed like a sea of orange and...
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...
The New York Knicks (5-0) beat the Orlando Magic (2-5) 99-89, tonight at the Amway Center from Orlando, FL.
In the first fives games of the season, the Knicks are still undeafeted by shocking people that they can be NBA title cotenders this season.
This is their best start since the 1993-1994 season when they went 7-0 and made the NBA finals that very season.
Here's your soundtrack for this one. Play in the background, or not.
Tonight in Memphis, the New York Knicks did something they haven't done all year, and something that every other team has done already. They lost, for the first time, and while the result wasn't in any way surprising (they were on the down slope of a back to back, they had extended a lot of energy...
