Knicks 102, Hornets 94: Scenes from the dawn of Kristaps

Hey. The thing where the Knicks stop executing in the last 5 minutes, and the thing where all the bench guys take the floor at once and blow leads ... both those things could be better. The Knicks should have had this game wrapped up much earlier. THAT SAID, I had a ton of fun tonight. I'm glad the Knicks held off another Hornets comeback to get themselves back to .500. I'm glad Carmelo Anthony played a rounded, rugged game with love and charity for all, even on a night when he couldn't catcha break. I'm glad Jose Calderon, Arron Afflalo, and -- most of all -- Langston Galloway hit some...

Arron Afflalo's midrange jumper gives Derek Fisher options

Arron Afflalo's consistent ability to find and nail open midrange jump shots has provided Derek Fisher offensive options as he searches for strengths among a roster of new players. Arron Afflalo seems to have picked up for the Knicks exactly where he left off: shooting midrange jump shots. In his three games back since hamstring issues, Afflalo has already shown his penchant to get himself open looks from 10-19 feet by using different methods. In the video compilation below, you will see him score on an excellent wing defender off a basic on-ball screen from Robin Lopez. Next, you'll see...

Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavaliers - 11/13/15

The world's pretty scary right now. Thoughts are with those in Paris, including the friends and family of Kevin Seraphin, who tweeted this this evening. Meanwhile, there is basketball. The Cavaliers, who the Knicks kinda could've beat but did not a little while back, are in town. Their injury situation is as it was. The Knicks' lineups and stuff remain, with Arron Afflalo starting his second consecutive game since returning. Tip-off tonight is at 7:30 on MSG and NBA TV. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread, and don't forget to check out Fear the...

Arron Afflalo shows how he’ll unlock parts of Knicks offense

CHARLOTTE — Lost amid the commotion over the final frantic 30 seconds and Kristaps Porzingis’ near-miracle buzzer-non-beater was Arron Afflalo’s first game as a Knick. Putting aside the heartbreaking defeat, it went very well. Afflalo, a key free-agent signing for two years and $16 million, had more bounce than rust, hitting three of his first four shots as...

The high praise Patrick Ewing dished out to Kristaps Porzingis

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Patrick Ewing didn’t average a double-double as a Knicks rookie in 1985-86, though he came close (20.0 points, 9.0 rebounds). Another Knicks rookie, Kristaps Porzingis, is the next to try. The last Knicks rookie to average a double-double? Willis Reed in 1964-65 with 19.5 points and 14.7 rebounds. Following Porzingis’ 10 points...

Legend of Porzingis this close from growing exponentially

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — There was dark humor in the Knicks locker room late Wednesday after rookie Kristaps Porzingis came a millisecond from becoming a buzzer-beating, game-winning hero. Trailing by two, the 7-foot-3 Latvian took an inbounds pass with 0.6 seconds left and fired from straightaway behind the 3-point line, the ball splashing through the net....

The brief, ‘disappointing’ Jimmer Fredette era is over with Knicks

Jimmer Fredette or not, the Westchester Knicks will open their second D-League season Thursday against the Maine Red Claws at the Westchester County Center. The Fredette fiasco wasn’t a good look for the D-League. Westchester is the Knicks’ D-League affiliate, but its drafting of Fredette as the No. 2 pick last week only to have...

Knicks want Arron Afflalo for ‘long haul,’ so what’s 1 more day?

Arron Afflalo is unlikely to make his Knicks debut Tuesday night in Toronto, but Derek Fisher is “hopeful” the shooting guard will return Wednesday in Charlotte after missing nearly a month with a hamstring injury. “He’s looking good, he’s been working really hard, but chances [Tuesday] night are probably a little slimmer than Wednesday,” the...

Derek Fisher open to discussing lineup change and other practice notes

By all means ... discuss it! Sunday's matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers is only significant inasmuch as it gives the Knicks a great opportunity to halt their three-game losing streak against a terrible team. They won't face many clubs as bad as the Lakers this month -- or ever -- so it is imperative they take this game seriously. With that (hopefully) in mind, Derek Fisher held practice Saturday morning. Let's start with the questions on everyone's minds: no, Arron Afflalo didn't practice and yes, Jose Calderon and Sasha Vujacic scrimmaged with the starters. Afflalo is out. — Marc...

What Fisher needs to see before Afflalo can make Knicks debut

Arron Afflalo, who has yet to make his Knicks debut because of a strained left hamstring, participated in some of Tuesday’s practice, but will not play Wednesday in Cleveland. “It’s still really day-to-day,” coach Derek Fisher said. “He can feel really good and he can get some work in. If there’s any kind of lingering...

Where are the Trail Blazers' 3-pointers Coming From?

The Trail Blazers haven't slowed down their outside shooting attack so far through three games, even with less proven talent on the perimeter this season. Where are these 3-pointers coming from? For the last few months, many Blazer fans have speculated about how coach Terry Stotts would alter his offensive attack to better accommodate the skill sets of Portland's rebuilding roster. Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum, Dorell Wright, Arron Afflalo -- all reliable outside shooters over the course of their respective careers -- wound up in different uniforms this offseason, replaced by a handful of...

Wizards vs. Knicks preview: Washington hosts home opener on Halloween

The Wizards try to go 3-0 on the second half of a back to back. The Wizards have started the season 2-0 for the first time in a decade. They go into the home opener against the New York Knicks on the second night of a back to back after a gritty, ugly, emotional win in Milwaukee. The Knicks -- a.k.a. the new home of #KSLIFE -- have a much-improved roster from last year's 17-win team, surrounding Carmelo Anthony with players like Robin Lopez, Arron Afflalo, Kyle O'Quinn, and rookie Kristaps Porzingus. New York is currently 1-1, having beaten Milwaukee and lost to Atlanta. Game info When:...

In search of Derek Fisher-approved solutions to the Knicks' backcourt problem

We must honor his code! The New York Knicks have a problem. A 25-point win at Milwaukee only briefly masked an issue which buried them early in Thursday's loss to the Hawks. In short, their starting guards suck. Sasha Vujacic, their emergency starter with Arron Afflalo on the shelf, sucks. Jose Calderon, their starting point guard regardless of injuries, somehow sucks more. This glaring weakness seemingly could be addressed by starting one of New York's two promising young guards, Langston Galloway and Jerian Grant. Is Derek Fisher worried about Grant's lack of NBA experience? Fine, then...
