New York Knicks
The Knicks' 106-99 loss to the Pacers in game six of their round two matchup put an end to their NBA title dreams, thus allowing the season to come to a close.Having won a previously pivotal game five on their home court to stay alive, New York had hoped to steal a game six victory away from Indiana as well (this time on the road) to bring the series back to the Big Apple and essentially, force a game seven.The hearts of Knicks fans everywhere were broken as Brooklyn's own, the spunky Lance Stephenson, helped the Pacers break away in the game's final minutes to earn themselves a series victory. New York kept the pace for three full quarters, proving they wouldn't go down without a fight. The likes of Carmelo Anthony, Iman Shumpert, and even Chris Copeland helped their team secure a small lead in the third quarter, but such satisfaction escaped them quickly as that same lead was short-lived.Anthony was playing like a true superstar, Shumpert was having a breakout post...

When you think of New York Newspapers, the NYDN is likely not the first or even second paper on your list. The Times and the Post have fought for that top spot for an awful long time now, so maybe it’s not surprising that sometimes the NYDN feels the need to push the envelope, generate a little controversy, and get some eyeballs to their pages. How else, then, do you explain...
Carmelo Anthony will have his injured left shoulder re-examined in order to determine how to treat it moving forward.
The New York Knicks are hopeful that Anthony will not need surgery and that it will improve with rest.
Anthony originally injured his shoulder during an April 14th win over the Indiana Pacers. Anthony reported that his left arm "popped in and out" when...
The Indiana Pacers closed out the New York Knicks in Game 6 of the NBA Eastern Conference Semis with a 106-99 victory in Indiana. The highlight of the game was Pacers center Roy Hibbert stopping Carmelo Anthony‘s dunk with this impressive dunk. The post Roy Hibbert Delivers Monster Block On Carmelo Anthony appeared first on Ride The Pine.
Let’s get right to it Knicks Nation. At two separate occasions in the first half the Knicks found themselves down by double digits. They were getting outplayed, out hustled, and going into the locker room, outscored as they found themselves down by 8 points.
However, a team that for every single one of their 94 games that lived and died by the three-point ball, started to show...
Carmelo Anthony scored 39 points in yesterday's game, but came up short in the 4th quarter
The always-tumultuous New York Knicks' season came to end Saturday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis at the hands of the Pacers, a team that clearly wanted the series victory much, much more than their metropolitan counterparts.
Even a kid from the big city...
The Indiana Pacers won Game 6 to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals but after the game everyone was talking about the Roy Hibbert block on Carmelo Anthony.
Hibbert’s block came at a huge part of the game. In the 4th quarter with 5 minutes left the Pacers were up 2 when Anthony decided to attack the rim. It looked like Anthony was going to tie the game but Hibbert had other...
A team built to win a title now didn't get close.
Sure, the New York Knicks ended lengthy droughts for division titles and playoff series victories, so there were successes. But they surrounded Carmelo Anthony with players on their last NBA legs with a championship in mind, knowing the window to win one would slam shut quickly.
As Hall of Famer Earl Monroe said in April on...
Lance Stephenson might have been the catalyst in Saturday night's Game 6 series clincher over the New York Knicks but it was Roy Hibbert's emphatic late-game rejection of a Carmelo Anthony dunk that represented how much the bigger, stronger Indiana Pacers dominated the Knicks under the basket throughout the series.
After the Knicks had taken a 92-90 lead on J.R. Smith’s...
The Indiana Pacers needed a career-high game from Lance Stephenson to take down the New York Knicks in Game 6.

About three years ago, I heard Charles Barkley on the NBA on TNT post game show make a statement about Joe Johnson, now of the Brooklyn Nets, when Joe was a member of the Atlanta Hawks.
“If Joe Johnson is the best player on your team, you’re not going far.” – Charles Barkley
Funny thing about that quote is Charles was right on the money. Fast forward to today and you could...
J.R. Smith will become a free agent this offseason but said after Saturday night’s 106-99 season-ending loss to the Indiana Pacers that he hopes to return to the New York Knicks. “I want to retire a Knick,” Smith said when asked about his future
After an impressive showing against the Boston Celtics in the opening round of the NBA playoffs, the New York Knicks barely put up a fight against the Indiana Pacers. The team was ice cold offensively throughout most of the series and lost Game 6 on Saturday by a score of 106-99, despite Carmelo Anthony’s 39 points on 15 of 29 shooting.
Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim, who coached...
Jim Boeheim loves Carmelo Anthony like a son, so it’s not shock that Boeheim feels the need to stick up for his former Syracuse star anytime he feels like Anthony is wrong criticized.
The New York Post is reporting that Boeheim took to the Syracuse Post-Standard to blast almost every Knicks player except Anthony.
, Boeheim ripped Tyson Chandler, point guards Raymond Felton...
Well that just sucks, eh? The New York Knicks season came to an end tonight with a 106-99 loss to the Indiana Pacers. It was a frustrating end to an enjoyable season and kicks off an off-season of limited flexibility for the Knicks, who will still have their share of question marks to sort out.
When looking back on this series, it really came down to a few factors. Roy Hibbert completely...
The Knicks were able to win game five at home, they were facing elimination and obviously were not looking to be knocked out in New York. Still its a small victory because the obvious real test is the next game. A game six that has the Pacers, with a chance to avoid a very dangerous game seven for them, eliminate the Knicks from the playoffs. The Pacers will come with more intensity...
