Generally speaking, the New York Knicks frown upon the idea of congratulating themselves for keeping things competitive, and they're hardly the type to exult in a valiant effort following a tough loss. Nor should they be, as a team with noble -- if far-fetched -- aspirations for the franchise's first NBA title in three decades.
But in the case of Thursday night's 95-94 loss to the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder, the Knicks had plenty to be proud of, and their admiration of their own performance, from head coach Mike Woodson on down, was justified.

The New York Knicks had no business even being in the game without Carmelo Anthony, but they played their hearts while falling just short of upsetting the defending Western Conference Champions, 95-94. J.R. Smith, who had 36 points on the night, including six threes, wasn’t able to execute on a last second isolation, and wound up missing a contested fadeaway that would have won...
J.R. Smith scored 24 points and the New York Knicks shook off the absence of Carmelo Anthony and the shock of Amare Stoudemire needing more knee surgery to rout the slumping Utah Jazz, 113-84, on Saturday night.
The Knicks learned earlier Saturday that Stoudemire will have right knee surgery that will sideline him approximately six weeks. But they still have plenty of scoring off...
