If you missed Steph Curry last night, you missed one of the NBA’s all-time great shooting exhibitions. Curry shot 18 of 28 from the field, including in insane 11 of 13 from 3.
That “Phantom” video from the NBA gives you a nice look at the prettiest jumper in the NBA. It’s absolutely perfect form. And last, there was almost nothing the Knicks could do to stop it… which had Doc Rivers in awe.
“That was special to watch,” Rivers said, adding: “Some of the shots he was making were spectacular. … The way he shot the ball and the shots he got — he’s just a great shooter. He’s the best shooter in our league.”
Of course, Curry’s huge night comes with a huge “BUT…” because the Warriors lost. I’d gladly argue that Tyson Chandler’s 28 rebounds were just as impressive, especially since 10 of those were offensive rebounds. He also had many more un-counted tap-backs that essentially won the game for the Knicks.
I know damn well that watching someone drill 11 of 13 threes

All year the Knicks have been looking for a “big” to step up and help Tyson on the defensive end of the court. All year little has happened in that help. After the news came out that Rasheed Wallace had a fracture in his foot, which will require surgery and will most likely keep him out for the year, the Knicks finally signed Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract. If...

Stephen Curry cemented himself in Madison Square Garden history with his 54 point, 11-13 from behind the arc game on Wednesday, Feb. 27. The performance marked the Garden’s third highest point total in it’s long, decorated history, behind Jordan’s famous 55 in 1995, and Kobe’s incredible 61 in 2009. Curry may have proved no one in the game has as pure of a shot as he recently...
Rasheed Wallace's season is over.
The New York Knicks forward is out eight weeks with a broken foot that will require season-ending surgery, according to the New York Times' Howard Beck. This is a real-life blow -- not a fantasy one.
Wallace, at 38, no longer was the fantasy force of the past. In 20 games, he averaged 7.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and .8 blocks while playing...
The New York Knicks did us all a favor this season by signing Rasheed Wallace, because we should always have his crazy ass involved in the NBA forever and ever until the world ends. Interestingly enough, the apocalypse will be David Stern’s fault, but that’s not related to today’s news. Namely, that Wallace’s season is over.The Knicks are optimistic that Wallace, who is now...

From the Globe's Baxter Holmes twitter account.
On whether they'll sign Terrence Williams to another 10-day deal, Doc Rivers says, "I think so."

This shouldn't come to a huge surprise to anyone, considering Williams has played fairly decently in limited minutes, and his 10-day contract expires tomorrow...

The New York Knicks overcame a performance from an opposing guard at the top of his game before facing one who is clearly not at the moment.
Washington Wizards point guard John Wall had a strong showing the last time he faced the Knicks, but he's enduring some major woes heading into Friday night's matchup at the Verizon Center.
New York (34-20) won 109-105 at home over...
