Derrick Rose will miss Friday’s game, highlighting the Knicks’ need for a third point guard

Derrick Rose will miss Friday’s game, highlighting the Knicks’ need for a third point guard

Even if Rose were healthy, the Knicks have been playing with fire by only keeping two PG’s on the roster. Lost amid the avalanche of insane bullshit that followed in the wake of the Knicks’ blowout loss to Cleveland on Wednesday was the fact that, hey, with Derrick Rose on the shelf with a back injury, the team only had one true point guard. Did that lose them the game? Absolutely not. They could have suited up prime Clyde Frazier and still lost to the Cavs. But it highlights a critical flaw that has been apparent since before the start of the season. Yo, if Derrick Rose or Brandon...

Are Derrick Rose’s drives to the basket helping the Knicks’ offense?

Are Derrick Rose’s drives to the basket helping the Knicks’ offense?

Spoiler alert: yeah, probably. It’s an understatement to say Derrick Rose has been a divisive player among Knicks fans this season. Opinions on his play seem to be either very positive or very negative, with almost nothing in between. This divide is especially present in reactions to Rose’s affinity for driving to the basket. Fans of Rose’s play appreciate his ability to finish at the rim, while detractors malign his frequent refusal to pass. Therefore, given that we’re about one-quarter of the way through the season, it makes sense to take a look at the pros and cons of his...

Rose said it was not just his back,...

Carmelo Anthony scores 35 in Knicks' win over Heat; Derrick Rose hurt

MIAMI -- Carmelo Anthony used to have to battle LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh whenever he made the trip to South Beach. But the Heat is an injury-riddled team in transition that has some players you wouldn't know without a roster sheet or boxscore in front of you.

Derrick Rose left tonight’s game with back spasms

Derrick Rose left tonight’s game with back spasms

Poopy. Some bad news in the midst of a pretty fun second half of basketball: Derrick Rose has backs spasms and will not return.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) December 7, 2016 He left at the 6 minute mark of the third quarter. Derrick Rose’s play has seriously picked up of late, but he wasn’t performing particularly well tonight (10 points on 4/12 shooting and only 3 assists in 24 minutes). Back spams could certainly have contributed to that, especially for someone who plays the way Rose does. Get well Derrick - we need you tomorrow night!

Derrick Rose's 30-point game overshadowed by Russell Westbrook

Derrick Rose had the best game of his Knicks career Monday night. But he'll always be remembered as the "other guy" in this one because of the point guard he was matched up against.

Carmelo: Why Westbrook re-upped (and made Knicks a pipe dream)

Within minutes of Kevin Durant’s stunning decision to leave Oklahoma City for the Bay area last July, speculation flew that Russell Westbrook would follow suit in the summer of 2017. And there had been rumblings Westbrook had an affection for New York City — given his fashionista persona and all. With point guard Derrick Rose...

Knicks 113, Hornets 111: Scenes from an overfed slugfest

Caramelized. Robert Randolph doubled down tonight by showing up to play at the Garden and the double negative reversed the Friday night curse. Carmelo Anthony really proved he’s got the juice. He carried the team right from the jump and brought them back from the dead in the second half. Kristaps Porzingis still manages to be one of the most imposing players on the floor despite not having the juice. That kid had a strangely majestic off night. Derrick Rose alternated between slipping and sipping on the juice. Weirdo game. let’s have a looksee at some critical moments. It was one of...
