Knicks Journal :
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 to score the basket.Despite scoring 25 points against the Magic on Tuesday, and aside from what people may believe from checking out the box score from that night, the opponent made it difficult for Anthony to score. Orlando forced him to log a gritty effort on offense as they double-teammed and trapped him all game, not allowing the forward to drive to the basket.This may not have been sufficient enough preparation, but certainly an even tougher matchup lied ahead for Anthony and his Knicks on Thursday evening. In a game between the teams with the NBA's best records, New York and the Spurs rumbled ...

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.

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...
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...
Do you believe in #Knickstape yet? The Knicks are currently 6-0 and remain the only undefeated team in the L. The Knicks beat the Spurs at home, 104-100 on an off shooting night for Carmelo Anthony who scored just 9 points. Point guard Raymond Felton had the hot hand with 25 points and 7 assists. [...]

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...
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...
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...
The Knicks undeafeted season has come to an end as they lose to the Grizzlies 105-95, last night at the FedEx Forum.
New York falls short of going 7-0. The last and only time they went 7-0 was back in the 1993-1994 season, where they made the NBA Finals.
Their record stands at 6-1 and there really isn't any negative thing to say about this team as of right now. It's...
