Bucks 123, Knicks 108: Scenes from at least we don’t have to play Giannis again this season

Bucks 123, Knicks 108: Scenes from at least we don’t have to play Giannis again this season

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports It was close until it wasn’t. I guess it’s not bad enough that the Knicks have to take these beatings on an almost nightly basis — the NBA decided we need stay up past midnight to do it. Despite the game being played in Milwaukee, Friday night’s game between the Knicks and Bucks tipped off at 10 PM. And if you stayed up for the whole thing, you didn’t miss that much, unless you’re a big Giannis Antetokounmpo fan. Giannis annihilated the Knicks to the tune of 38 points and 13 rebounds. Jrue Holiday (24 points) and Khris...

Miami’s largest lead was 30 points. Silver-linings-wise, Obi Toppin played well. Cam Reddish, Deuce McBride, and Jericho Sims saw action…late. That’s about it. New York is 4-6 in their last 10, and here comes another tough opponent. On Friday, the Knicks visit the reigning NBA champions, the Milwaukee Bucks (30-20).

Point/counterpoint: Should the Knicks trade for Kings guard De’Aaron Fox?

Point/counterpoint: Should the Knicks trade for Kings guard De’Aaron Fox?

Photo by David Dow/NBAE via Do they like him? Or“like” him like him? Our first trade tête-à-tête stirred up much internal debate within the Knicks fanbase over Ben Simmons’ viability as a trade candidate. So Matthew and I decided to do it again with another potential Knicks target, De’Aaron Fox. The search for a point guard becomes more pressing in light of the team’s continued struggles at the position with Derrick Rose out. Is it finally time to pull the trigger on a Fox deal? Escobedo: The Ben Simmons debate was fun! The discussion around whether we...

Toppin and Poppin’: What should be done about Tom Thibodeau?

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports Jay and Abe take on the Thibs dilemma. Toppin & Poppin’ will be a recurring conversation series between Abe Beame, and our newest team member at Posting & Toasting: the great Jayson Buford. For tonight’s installment, we’ll be discussing what may prove to be the only relevant topic of conversation throughout the rest of a potentially very disappointing season: Whether or not to retain the services of our head coach, Tom Thibodeau.

Heat 110, Knicks 96: Scenes from at least Cam Reddish got a workout

Heat 110, Knicks 96: Scenes from at least Cam Reddish got a workout

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports LOL, this team sucks. So, here we are again. The Miami Heat are way better than the Knicks, particularly the starting five. They showed it from the opening tip, jumping out to a 13-2 lead. They were up by a ton until a lineup of RJ Barrett and the bench brought the deficit back down to 10, They would trail by 13 at the half. However, most Knicks fans knew what was coming. The Heat came out pf halftime with purpose, and the Knicks came out looking to get Julius Randle (four first-half points) involved. In one sense, it worked — Julius...

This marks the first of three regular-season meetings between the two teams. The Eastern Conference-leading Heat last played on Sunday, defeating the Lakers 113-107. On Monday, the eleventh-place Knicks once again fought back from a self-inflicted hole but lost 95-93 to the Cavaliers. ESPN.com gives the Heat a 75.8% chance. They could have rounded up to 80%, no?

Westchester Knicks struggle down the stretch, lose to Raptors 905

Photo by Christian Bonin/NBAE via Brandon Williams scored 34 points and Dewan Hernandez notched double-double for Westchester. After a tough 25-point loss to the Maine Celtics on Saturday, the Westchester Knicks kicked off their three-game road trip against the Raptors 905. Even though the Raptors opened the game on a 9-0 run, the Knicks countered with an 11-0 run of their own. Jordan Allen and Brandon Williams were responsible for the 11 points and played a big role offensively in the opening quarter. Both teams went back-and-fourth in the first quarter, as the Knicks...

Cavaliers 95, Knicks 93: “I hate this team”

Cavaliers 95, Knicks 93: “I hate this team”

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports The Knicks are the Buffalo Bills of the NBA. I’ve rehearsed a dozen different approaches to recapping last night’s 95-93 New York Knicks’ defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers. But the truth is I’m in no better of a position right now than the Knicks. My personal and professional lives feel so hopeless at the moment I’m beginning to wonder why I bother with either. Same with the Knicks. New York fell behind 86-71 in the fourth, then rallied behind an all-bench lineup. A 20-5 run tied it at 91. Immanuel Quickley had an awful shooting...

Cavaliers 95, Knicks 93: Scenes from yet another soul-crusher

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports Blergh. Ugh. The New York Knicks came back from 15 point down in the fourth to tie the game late against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sadly, some horrendous late-game offense cost them a chance at the win. The third quarter of doom nearly ruined the Knicks’ chances of making any sort of a comeback. The game was knotted at 61 apiece when the Knicks just stopped defending Kevin Love, who hit a bunch of threes. Suddenly, the Cavs were up double-digits. The bench got the Knicks back into the game behind the play of Quentin Grimes (12 points)...

They finished 22-50 and 13th in the Eastern Conference. Pushovers!

Tonight, the New York Knicks (23-24) roll into Cleveland for the second of a back-to-back, and the host ain’t no pushover anymore. On Saturday, the Cavs (28-19)...

The Knicks were without Miles McBride and Jericho Sims, as both were with the New York Knicks. Luka Samanic, MJ Walker, Tyler Hall and Quinton Rose were not available due to injury. Westchester kept it closer for most of the first quarter until the final thirty seconds. Maine scored the final five points and continued their scoring ways in the second quarter,...
