Knicks blow winnable game against tired Hornets

Devastating. After leading for the vast majority of Saturday night, the Knicks were buried by Devonte’ Graham’s 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds in a 103-102 loss to the Hornets at MSG. Graham ran past Frank Ntilikina and connected on the high-soaring jumper before falling the court. It gave Graham a...

Game Preview: Knicks vs. Hornets, 11/16/2019

It would be funny if they can only beat the Mavs. I think. Keep this same hootenanny. ️ LOCK HIM UP, FRANK. pic.twitter.com/jZ92Zer69T— NEW YORK KNICKS (@nyknicks) November 15, 2019 Maybe the Knicks can only get up for games against the toxic Mavericks. If so, so be it. Probably helps when you have the perfect matchups for their top two guys. Frank Ntilikina is Luka Doncic’s worst nightmare, and really anyone can guard Kristaps Porzingis. Now let’s see if they can do the same thing against a feisty, springy team that was largely projected to be one of the worst in the league...

Frank Ntilikina embracing ‘junkyard dog’ mentality with Knicks

Frank Ntilikina embracing ‘junkyard dog’ mentality with Knicks

New York Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina has decided to embrace his newfound “junkyard dog” mentality, with a decisive and sudden meeting with embattled second-year head coach David Fizdale propelling the Frenchman to his recent stretch of positive play. “He just said, ‘Coach, I’ve been through a lot in my two years. I feel like I […] The post Frank Ntilikina embracing ‘junkyard dog’ mentality with Knicks appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Frank Ntilikina is budding before our eyes

David Fizdale said it was about two weeks ago when Frank Ntilikina, the soft-spoken point guard, walked into his office. “He just said, ‘Coach, I’ve been through a lot in my two years,’” Fizdale recalled. “’I feel like I finally understand what the NBA is about. I know I haven’t shown it yet, but...

Knicks 106, Mavs 103: Scenes from the KP sucks game

NO SNAKES ALLOWED | Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via KP really does suck Don’t be confused, that was a total weirdo game. It was so weird that the Knicks actually hit most of their free throws, including Frank Ntilikina icing the game with a pair. The Mavs actually had two last chances to tie it up with a three, but Marcus Morris put a stop to both of them. Ntilikina also helped shut the game down in the closing moments with multiple perfect defensive efforts despite having five of the tickiest tackiest fouls imaginable. Dennis Smith Jr. and Mitchell Robinson both made terrific...

Taj Gibson: How the little things can make a big difference

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ The vet has made a strong case to be the Knicks’ backup center Admittedly, the allocation of the Knicks backup center minutes isn’t the sexiest topic. It may, however, be the most realistic potential change David Fizdale can make to his early-season rotation. ​ Since our beloved French son Frank Ntilikina was, finally, four games ago, released from the ludicrous confines of Fizdale’s pocket, he has proceeded to kill, and emphatically keep, the starting point guard job. Rookie RJ Barrett will continue to play (too) many minutes. Marcus Morris has been...

The Giants and Jets have two wins apiece, so three wins would be nothing to sneeze at! Same starting lineup as Friday: Taj Gibson, Julius Randle, Marcus Morris, RJ Barrett and Frank Ntilikina.

New York Knicks: Frank Ntilikina is stealing more than just passes

Frank Ntilikina is the man for the New York Knicks at point guard, and there is little reason for him to lose this job after Friday’s game. Did the New York Knicks just solve their point guard problem? Frank Ntilikina will hope so, after the best game of his career on Friday, Nov. 8, against […] New York Knicks: Frank Ntilikina is stealing more than just passes - Daily Knicks - Daily Knicks - A New York Knicks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Frank Ntilikina has the best game of his career

DALLAS — This was the best of Frank Ntilikina. Aggressive on offense — even to the point of trying to dunk on Kristaps Porzingis — and pesky on defense, Ntilikina understood afterwards he put together a gem in Friday night’s 106-102 victory over the Mavericks. “Best all-around, yes,” he said. Ntilikina...

Knicks’ Frank Ntilikina gives best performance of his career; Mavs’ Kristaps Porzingis drops 28

DALLAS — The Knicks probably lost the trade but they won the night. Kristaps Porzingis rose to the occasion but Frank Ntilikina was the hero for the Knicks with his defense and best performance of his career in a 106-102 Knicks victory Friday over the Mavericks. Porzingis dropped 28 points, nine...

Knicks 106, Mavericks 102: Scenes from the (French) Prince Who Was Promised

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Frank did the damn thing. The story of Friday night’s contest between the Knicks and Maverick was nearly an easily-penned story of the heroics of Luka Doncic (38 points) and former Knick Kristaps Porzingis (28 points). The longest-tenured Knick, however, refused to let that happen. I’m referring to Frank Ntilikina, the 21-year-old former bust who has risen like a goddamn phoenix since being inserted into the starting lineup a few games ago. Mr. Ntillmatic led the ‘Bockers to a thrilling 106-102 win on the strength of an all-around wonderful performance: 14...

New York Knicks’ Frank Ntilikina tried to put the towering Kristaps Porzingis in a poster, but the Dallas Mavericks center was having none of it. At the four-and-a-half-minute mark of the second quarter, the 21-year-old French guard used a quick first step to blow past Luka Doncic and get to the lane.

Ep. 19 Shock Jacques Knicks Podcast

Why the rest of November might make or break the Knicks season and a message to the “Fire Fizdale” crowd. Hey folks! I’m back with a brand new podcast this week after a difficult week for the Knicks. Why can’t the Knicks find consistency? I also breakdown a tough start to the season for Julius Randle as a whole and why everyone is either high or low on Frank Ntilikina (it has something to do with his play believe it or not). I also analyze why the rest of the month of November could make or break the Knicks season and I address the “Fire Fizdale” crowd. Don’t worry I include...

New York Knicks: Frank Ntilikina’s starting run bound to continue

Without Elfrid Payton for at least two more games and Dennis Smith Jr.’s unknown status, point guard is Frank Ntilikina’s to lose with the New York Knicks.
