Nets need Jarrett Allen to solve their biggest problem

ORLANDO, Fla. — Despite a solid start to the season, the Nets are getting worn out by stretch big men who can move and shoot and open up the floor. Tuesday they’ll get a second look at one who torched them for 41 points just four days earlier, when they face the Magic’s Nikola Vucevic....

Giants need to start planning now for post-Eli Manning era

Life After Eli Manning is a sobering and frightening prospect for a franchise that has been luckier than most at the most important position for the last 14 seasons, and for Giants fans. Whoever will be picking the players and picking up the pieces for the Giants after this season, whether it is Jerry Reese...

Giants’ sub receivers look like what they are

Giants’ sub receivers look like what they are

It sure looks as if the replacements need to be replaced. In two games without Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard, Giants wide receivers have a total of seven receptions for 67 yards. Tavarres King has two catches for 8 yards on six targets. Roger Lewis has two catches for 27 yards on...

Isaiah Whitehead pays the price for Nets’ deep backcourt

Isaiah Whitehead pays the price for Nets’ deep backcourt

ORLANDO, Fla. — Last season combo guard Isaiah Whitehead was one of the Nets’ mainstays. Monday, the team assigned the Coney Island native to its G-League Long Island club. The assignment is hardly a shock. It was expected. Even after starting guard Jeremy Lin suffered a season-ending ruptured patella tendon, Whitehead hasn’t gotten a single...

How much talent have Rangers missed out on with all-in trades?

How much talent have Rangers missed out on with all-in trades?

Trading four consecutive first-round draft picks in an attempt to add the missing piece/s for Stanley Cup runs was always a risk/reward proposition. And let’s face it, the deals that sent away the Rangers’ top picks from 2013 through 2016 in exchange for Rick Nash, Marty St. Louis and Keith Yandle did not bring the...

The case for Davis Webb in a lost Giants season

The case for Davis Webb in a lost Giants season

The Giants are 1-6 at their bye, headed to a dismal season and, most likely, a top-five pick in the 2018 draft – an enticing spot to land their next franchise quarterback. Eli Manning turns 37 in January, and the Giants hope to make a smooth transition once the end comes for him. Do they...

‘Raw’ Hal Steinbrenner speaks as big Yankees offseason begins

LOS ANGELES — Hal Steinbrenner admitted being “a little raw right now.” He was speaking by phone Monday from his office in the Tampa stadium named for his father, not even 48 hours having elapsed since the Yankees lost ALCS Game 7 to the Astros. “You know me, you know my family, it’s a little...

This is the sound that can get the Giants’ regime fired

The Giants will be playing the remainder of their home games at newly named Desolate Stadium, The Post has learned. The new naming rights came after a heated selection process, with MetLifeless Stadium a close runner-up. According to several thousand sources in blue and florescent green heard Sunday evening chanting “SEA-Hawks … SEA-Hawks,’’ the five...

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie knew he wasn’t getting used much

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was no longer suspended but he came into Sunday’s game knowing he was not going to receive his normal workload. “Yeah, I knew I wasn’t going to play much,’’ Rodgers-Cromartie said after a 24-7 loss to the Seahawks. “Just throw me in here and there, that’s hard to come off the sideline and...

Giants running game disappears just as quickly as it appeared

So much for the ground and pound. While the Giants were able to cover for their injury-depleted receiving corps by producing its best rushing attack of the season in last weekend’s win over the Broncos, the run game regressed to early-season form in Sunday’s 24-7 loss to the Seahawks, amassing just 46 yards on 17...

DeMarre Carroll got to be the star against his former team

Nets forward DeMarre Carroll had his breakthrough in Atlanta when Kenny Atkinson was the lead assistant there. Sunday against those same Hawks, he reminded them how good he can be. Carroll had 17 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes, leading Brooklyn to a 116-104 win. And it was...

The moment the Giants slip, they’re doomed

The 47-yard field goal attempt off the right leg of Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas drifted inches wide of the right upright on the second play of the fourth quarter Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The missed kick, which had it gone through would have tied the game at 10-10, didn’t lose the game for the Giants,...

Yankees’ next youth revolution is already in motion

In the moments after the Yankees’ season came to a crashing end in Houston on Saturday night, one win away from the World Series, general manager Brian Cashman had a blunt assessment of where the loss in the ALCS left them. “We’re like 28 other clubs,” Cashman said. “We’re in that pile of ‘What’s next?’...

Rookie Evan Engram grows into role as Giants’ only playmaker

In losing all of their starting wide receivers, the Giants have found Odell Beckham Jr. a wingman for years to come. With Sterling Shepard (ankle) out again, Eli Manning struggled to develop a rapport with any of the team’s wide receivers for the second straight week — following the season-ending injuries to Beckham, Brandon Marshall...

Nets check two key boxes in second straight victory

The Nets’ biggest priorities going into Sunday’s matinee were getting Allen Crabbe on track and shoring up their sieve-like defense. They should be happy with both after a 116-104 over the Hawks before 13,917 at Barclays Center. “We did a better job defensively; we got a few stops,” said coach Kenny Atkinson, whose Nets (2-1)...
