Heat expose Knicks’ discipline problems in disheartening loss

Before Friday night’s game at the Garden, Erik Spoelstra talked about his Heat needing to develop more toughness. Derek Fisher, meanwhile, said his Knicks needed more discipline. One team got the message. The other didn’t. By the time the horn ended a 97-78 road victory for the Heat, there wasn’t much doubt which was the...

Brick-shooting Knicks no match for Magic, fall to .500

ORLANDO, Fla. — There was another block party for rookie Kristaps Porzingis, but a brickfest for most of the Knicks at Amway Center. With team’s bench once again failing miserably to make shots and coach Derek Fisher struggling to figure out a consistent rotation, the Knicks became Florida flops with their second straight loss in...

Surging Knicks stave off Thunder to move above .500

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Knicks showed Friday night they’re more than just Kristaps Porzingis. The night began with injured free-agent-to-be Kevin Durant strolling across the court during pregame introductions to give former Thunder teammate and current Knicks coach Derek Fisher a hug. And the Knicks’ evening just got better from there. The difference between last...

Why Derek Fisher won’t jump-start Durant-to-Knicks talk

If Derek Fisher feels uncomfortable discussing Kevin Durant’s greatness, you can see why. Fisher and Durant, as former teammates, developed a strong bond. Any comment he makes about Durant, the Knicks coach feels could be taken the wrong way: as in tampering. Durant will be a free agent in 2016, and Knicks team president Phil Jackson...

Carmelo Anthony did a great job passing out of Charlotte double teams

As his teammates have stepped up their contributions, Carmelo has made an extra effort to feed them. The Knicks have been putting together some spells of fantastic, team-oriented play. They are often punctuated with lackluster defense and sputtering offense, but Derek Fisher is still chiseling out a rotation and the players largely haven't done enough to force his hand. You could make a case for Langston Galloway, but other than him, no one has established that they deserve more. The thing is, the Knicks still live and die with what Carmelo Anthony is able to contribute. Carmelo still has...

Derek Fisher courts outrage if he suppresses Porzingis’ minutes

Now that the cat is out of the bag — or rather the lion is out of the bag — Knicks coach Derek Fisher will face scrutiny on the minutes he’s allotting to 7-foot-3 rookie Kristaps Porzingis. Though Porzingis played a season-high 31 minutes Wednesday, there were a lot of anxious fans at the Garden when...

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...

Derek Fisher’s next Knicks challenge: Solving endgame puzzle

This will make it a dirty dozen games for the Knicks and it is more than having trust in one another, something that wasn’t present last season. Sure, they are showing trust, but do they have the talent? With Tuesday night’s matchup against Charlotte at the Garden, Derek Fisher’s team will be 12 games into...

Last year’s saving grace is shocking Knicks in new way

Last season, Langston Galloway went from an undrafted rookie on the Westchester Knicks to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team, an outlier of optimism on the worst team in Knicks history. Now, Galloway can no longer be considered a pleasant surprise, with his production this season — the Knicks’ third-leading scorer, averaging 11.3 points — among...

Stephen Curry passes his dad Dell in NBA All-Time 3-point scoring

Aside from passing his dad Dell, I find it quite notable that Stephen Curry is already tied with Derek Fisher, a guy who played 400 years in the league, for all-time 3-point makes. You can check out the full list over here. You'll also notice that Curry has the highest shooting percentage (44.2%) of anyone in the top 50 3-point totals.

Derek Fisher’s bench policy answers Phil Jackson’s challenge

The more, the merrier. That’s Knicks coach Derek Fisher’s current motto. A team not blessed with a coterie of All-Star-caliber players is decked out with a lot of competent players, down to the 14th man. In a tight game Tuesday, Fisher decided to do the lucky 13 routine. He used all 13 of his available...

The four dunks that have Knicks fans smitten with Porzingis

This is how you go from booed at the draft to celebrated at the Garden in eight games. Kristaps Porzingis’ all-around game has been a delight for Knicks fans, but it’s his thunderous put-back dunks that have made the highlight reels. Porzingis has four vicious follow throwdowns this season with many more still to come. Here are...

Porzingis replacement Thomas leads Knicks to key road win

TORONTO — Carmelo Anthony will take it. Will he ever. After a brutal start to the schedule, facing seven 2014-15 playoffs teams in their first eight games, the Knicks have escaped a .500 club at 4-4. The Knicks’ 111-109 squeaker over the two-time defending Atlantic Division champion Raptors at Air Canada Centre was emblematic of...
