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 season, though, New York proved that this year could be different. This is a team that has some support offensively and can do a few different things. Defensively this team is focused and has even Carmelo Anthony buying in.
None of that mattered against a very strong Grizzlies team. Memphis had a clear advantage on the glass with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol against New York's small front line. The Knicks like playing small and it came back to haunt them in this game. Particularly with Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler in foul trouble for most of the night.
Yes, New York is still a team that n...

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...
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 San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night learned firsthand one of the most surprising truths of this still-early NBA regular season: The team that Carmelo Anthony wrought by sheer will, ego and self-interest is a force to be reckoned with.
In battling back from an 11-point, fourth-quarter deficit, on the road and against one of the league's best teams, Anthony's Knicks cemented...
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...
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 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...
Carmelo Anthony kept the ball moving, setting up key baskets for Raymond Felton, J.R. Smith and Jason Kidd.
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...

The New York Knicks have been tremendous to say the least leading the Eastern Conference in the early stage of this 2012-13 season. Particularly, defeating elite teams like the Miami Heat (8-3) and San Antonio Spurs (8-2).
Mike Woodson’s team has been impressive in various ways.
The Leadership of Carmelo Anthony:
Anthony has finally built...
You didn’t think the New York Knicks would beat the Heat, did you? Without Amar’e Stoudemire, lost to a knee injury, you gave up all hopes on these Knicks, right?
To bad for those that chose to count the Knicks out before the season began. You’ll be using the remainder of the season to recant vicious comments.
This isn’t about you for now.
Tonight the Knicks go for seven...
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...
NEW YORK -- They were coming off a three-game road trip, their first loss of the season and faced an early game Sunday, and the New York Knicks found themselves struggling to score in the first half. No matter. These Knicks have quickly prided themselves on forming a brick wall on defense, from their defensive-minded coach Mike Woodson, all the way to their notoriously offensively...
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...
