Game Thread: Knicks vs. Nets- 01/13/21

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports Nets shorthanded The New York Knicks take on the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday in the dreaded national TV game. The Nets made a trade you may have heard about, so they’ll be without some players. But they still have Kevin Durant, who is very good and, judging by how annoyed he got during interviews this summer, really hates Knicks fans. The good news: Obi Toppin should return to action! Thibodeau said that Obi has just been cleared - still talking progression. Said if an opportunity to put him in he will, but taking all the proper steps.—...

Game Preview: Knicks at Hornets, 1/11/2021

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via The Knicks are .500! Hey look, I dunno whats gonna keep you warm but the fire is still going here. You wanna bring it in? Before the season hastily got rolling, the paperwork made the Knicks look like a solid C student. Julius Randle molted and became All-Star Julius. For the most part the rest of the returners seemed to level up, and the two rookies showed distinct promise. But can you believe the Knicks took Obi Toppin? They should have traded up for LaMelo Ball. If they’re not tanking wrong, are we even in New York anymore?...

Obi Toppin has calf strain, will miss at least one week

Photo by Michael Hickey/ Probably 2-3 weeks though. The New York Knicks didn’t play very well on Saturday night in a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, and the news didn’t get much better on the injury front.

Cool looking dunk. Ugly game. | Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via The Knicks were undermanned and underwhelming. Playing without either 2020 first round draft pick, a shorthanded Knicks squad hung relatively tough with the Philadelphia 76ers through two quarters Saturday night before breaking down like Four Year Strong, and the bright spots were few and far between. Prior to the start of the team’s first regular season home game at Madison Square Garden since last March, the Knicks announced that both Obi Toppin and Immanuel Quickley would not play due to injury....

76ers 109, Knicks 89: Scenes from my kingdom for a point guard

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Elf ain’t getting it done. The Knicks looked ragged on defense en route to a 109-89 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. Would having an actual NBA point guard help? Sadly, we may never know. If Immanuel Quickley is truly the answer at PG, we couldn’t find out Saturday night, as both he and Obi Toppin were out with injuries. To make matters worse, RJ Barrett was completely shut down by All-Star guard Ben Simmons, scoring 10 points on an embarrassing 2-15 from the field. RJ was bricking mightily from beyond the arc, shooting 0-6, and...
