Knicks-Pelicans Preview

After yet another close call, Amar'e Stoudemire believes the woeful New York Knicks are getting closer to turning things around. The Knicks try to avoid matching their longest losing streak from last season as they go for a sixth consecutive road win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. New York (4-18) has averaged just 90.8 points during an eight-game skid after falling...

Heat 86, Knicks 79: Game Recap

Thoughts on a Knicks-Heat game that invoked the Rivalry-Era classics of yesteryear in final score only… - Carmelo Anthony returned and produced well. He played 41 minutes (odd choice by Derek Fisher, though perhaps he just really wants to start winning some darn games) and scored nearly 40% of the Knicks’ points. He shot 50% from inside the arc — the Knicks altogether were...

Turn On The Knicks Six Pack – Down But Not Out…Yet

In New York sports, the sky is always falling, but the Knicks aren’t a complete lost cause. At least not yet. - We all knew a slow start was coming, and even at 3-10, the Knicks aren’t dead in the water just yet. Not surprisingly, it only takes 13 games for New Yorkers to start welcoming the draft lottery, but in the way-too-early-to-be-projected playoff race, the Knicks sit...

Jazz 102, Knicks 100: Game Recap

The Knicks were in and out of this game all night, and after fighting back from five down with over a minute to go, were eventually sunk by a Trey Burke fadeaway as time expired. Seems about right for a team that has now dropped seven consecutive games. - Carmelo Anthony was unstoppable, dropping in 46 points, including a banked-in three pointer to tie it up with just 2.1 seconds...

Nets 110, Knicks 99 – Game Recap

The Knicks dropped their fourth consecutive game, falling to the Nets in a game where for much of the night, they were just one run a way from making it competitive. That run never came. - This may have been the ugliest game of the young NBA season, as both teams combined for 30 turnovers and 48 personal fouls. The Nets made 38 field goals on the night, but 14 of them were from...

Jason Smith Blocks a Josh Smith Dunk

Starting in place of Amare Stoudemire. New York Knicks veteran big man Jason Smith made the most of his new role on both ends, scoring 17 points on 7-11 shooting and defensively highlighted by this monster block on Josh Smith. Despite his surprise contribution, the Knicks still lost 95-98 to the Detroit Pistons, but Smith is proving thus far to be a free agency steal. The post Jason...

Josh Smith’s dunk attempt sent back in his face (VIDEO)

Vine Pistons hack Josh Smith went up for a dunk Wednesday and was quickly denied by Knicks center Jason Smith.  From one J. Smith to another, get that weak stuff outta here. The missed attempt was just one of 17 missed attempts for Josh Smith on the night.  He shot 2 for 17, which may have actually brought up his season’s shooting percentage.  I’m still doing the math.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Greg Monroe had 23 points and 18 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons held off the New York Knicks 98-95 Wednesday night for their first win of the season. The Pistons (1-3) went 1 for 17 on 3-pointers in Sunday's loss to Brooklyn, but Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit their first three attempts against New York, and they ended up with a season-high 11.

Game Recap: Pistons 98, Knicks 95

Thoughts from the Knicks’ odd loss to the Pistons, 98-95: - I have no idea how the Knicks were in this game late. They should have never had a chance to tie the game late with the ball, but, alas. With the Pistons up 3 Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (who absurdly made a whole slew of 3-pointers in this game) missed 2 free throws, then fouled Iman Shumpert; Shumpert made one free throw...

Thoughts from the Knicks’ forgettable 2014-15 Home Opener: - It feels like a very long time ago, but the Knicks actually got off to a decent start in this game. The Knicks were very active on defense, and offensively they were moving the ball a lot, even if it wasn’t resulting in a bevy of open looks. For a while, it was simply nice to just see the Knicks move the ball and themselves...

After a brief period of semi-relevancy in the East, the Knicks have once again sunk to the lottery cellar despite a bloated budget.

Preseason basketball is usually as meaningful as a James Dolan promise, but with three legitimate shooting guards, four injury prone big men, but just one guaranteed starter on the roster, Derek Fisher certainly has his work cut out for him in early October.
