Knicks 107, Clippers 85: 'Yeah, that was nice'

Knicks 107, Clippers 85: 'Yeah, that was nice'

Victory at home. Monday night’s visit from the Los Angeles Clippers presented the New York Knicks with a tricky little number: a home game, coming off a loss, against a team who’s beaten them 10 times in a row and was desperate to stop an eight-game losing streak. The Knicks’ 107-85 victory was like the reunion episode of a TV series—heartwarming cameo after heartwarming cameo. The teams combined to hit their first seven shots and Jarrett Jack had five points in the opening minute, early signs tonight’s spirit energy was all about honoring the unsustainable. That spirit would...

Knicks 107, Clippers 85: Scenes from some feel-good home-cookin’

Knicks 107, Clippers 85: Scenes from some feel-good home-cookin’

Heroes abound! Friday in Toronto, the Knicks played their worst game of the young season. Tonight they bounced back with an across-the-board success, crushing the Los Angeles Clippers 107-85. Both teams got off to hot starts. Fun with fractions: the Knicks went the first quarter of the first quarter without missing a shot, and the Clippers spent the first third of the first quarter perfect from the field. Fun with chaos: they both started missing shots and turning it over. A lot. This was a running theme throughout the half, when New York had 14 turnovers and Los Angeles 15. Fun with moving...

Game Thread: Knicks vs. Clippers- 11/20/17

Win. The suddenly hobbling Knicks are taking on the struggling Los Angeles Clippers Monday night at MSG. This isn't the same Clips team that has been spanking the Knicks twice a year for a while now, but they'll still be a tough test for Kristaps Porzingis and friends. Tip-off tonight is at 7:30 PM on MSG. This is your game thread. This is Clips Nation. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in this thread. Please be kind and respectful to one another, and stay calm. Go the Knicks!

Locked on Knicks, Episode 211: Kristaps slumps, Timmy hurts his foot, home vs away splits.

Locked on Knicks, Episode 211: Kristaps slumps, Timmy hurts his foot, home vs away splits.

Is Krispy gonna be ok? KP’s production has dipped the past 3 games. Has the league figured him out? Is his elbow bothering him? Is it only a slump? Timmy hurt his foot against Utah. How concerned are we for his future health, and what does it mean for playing time for the kids? The Knicks have played very well at home and not so well on the road. Is the offense or the defense to blame? On today’s ‘sode I ponder — and quite possibly answer! — these questions and more. Listen!

Wassup in Westchester: Damyean Dotson goes for 23 points in W-Knicks win

Wassup in Westchester: Damyean Dotson goes for 23 points in W-Knicks win

Second win in a row for the W-Knicks. The Westchester Knicks won their second game in a row Sunday, coming back to defeat to Lakeland Magic, 106-100. Lakeland came out hot early, leading by 10 points in the first half, but the W-Knicks took control of a close game in the second half. Damyean Dotson (big Knick): 23 points on 9-15 shooting (3-5 from beyond the arc), 6 rebounds, 3 assists I’d like to go on the record as saying that I kinda hope Damyean Dotson starts in place of Tim Hardaway Jr. if the latter cannot play Monday night due to his foot injury. Jeff Hornacek has that coach...

Knicks Practice Notes: Tim Hardaway Jr. questionable for Monday’s game with sore foot

Knicks Practice Notes: Tim Hardaway Jr. questionable for Monday’s game with sore foot

Be well, Tim’s foot. The New York Knicks practiced Sunday, and unfortunately the news isn’t very good for Tim Hardaway Jr., who left Friday night’s loss with a foot injury. Not only did Timmy miss practice, he isn’t a sure bet to play in Monday’s clash with the Los Angeles Clippers. Tim Hardaway Jr. says he has soreness in the bottom of his foot. He’ll see how he feels when he wakes up tomorrow before determining whether he’ll play vs. LAC. https://t.co/0riBkAMLGm— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) November 19, 2017 I honestly didn’t even notice Tim’s injury during Friday’s...

Calling all P&T Mailbag questions: Round 3

Calling all P&T Mailbag questions: Round 3

Ahh, mailbag. What better way to spread Knick-fueled mayhem? If you were born yesterday, I have terrifying truths to tell about the life and times you’ve inherited. On the plus side, the Knicks are good and mailbags are a-plenty. The last time those two stars both appeared in our Friday Night Knicks skies was...(buffering)...NEVER! Whoa! Wondering what the new ceiling for Kristaps Porzingis may be (trick question: the limit does not exist!!!)? Tired of all the posers posing trick-ass nicknames for Frank Ntilikina? Do ye seek one moniker to rule them all? Curious what kind of side...

Wassup in Westchester: W-Knicks win their first home game of the season

Wassup in Westchester: W-Knicks win their first home game of the season

Take THAT, Greensboro. The Westchester Knicks finally got back into the win column with a steady 95-86 win over the Greensboro Swarm. Playing at home in the Westchester Civic Center, the W-Knicks jumped out to a 17-7 run to start, and took an 11-point lead into the half. They never led by fewer than eight points the rest of the way. Nice. Luke Kornet (two-way contract): 21 points (7-12 shooting, 5-8 from beyond the arc), 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals. Sometimes I remember that Luke Kornet is a two-way contract player, so technically he could play for the Knicks whenever, and I imagine...

Raptors 107, Knicks 84: ‘Beasley out there still looking for a 25-point shot. Bless him’

Raptors 107, Knicks 84: ‘Beasley out there still looking for a 25-point shot. Bless him’

A blowout loss with lots of Michael Beasley at the end. The Knicks have a tough time winning on the road, like a lot of young teams. (Please don’t @ me with the “Actually if you look at their average age, the Knicks aren’t really young” garbage. They’re young!) The Toronto Raptors, on the other hand, are masters at their craft—the craft of piling up regular-season wins against inferior teams, that is. The end result was a fairly predictable 107-84 defeat that only matter insomuch as it continued to reveal the deteriorating state of Kristaps Porzingis’ elbow. The Unicorn...

Raptors 107, Knicks 84: Scenes from Kristaps Porzingis’ swollen elbow

Raptors 107, Knicks 84: Scenes from Kristaps Porzingis’ swollen elbow

The Raptors outclassed New York. The New York Knicks aren’t good on the road, and they’re not good when Kristaps Porzingis isn’t playing like a superhuman. Both of those factors combined to bite the ‘Bockers in the ass Friday night, as they traveled to Toronto and got stomped by the Raptors, The Unicorn was an ordinary horse Friday, shooting 3-13 as the sack of sadness that is his injured elbow continues to grow. Not sure how long he can—or should—go before getting that sucker drained. The Raptors’ offense was so hot that Jeff Hornacek did the whole “I need defense; better...

Can they win on the road? Alas, the New York Knicks couldn’t stay at home forever. They will put their sketchy road record on the line Friday night when they travel north of the border to face the Toronto Raptors. Gotta learn how to win on the road, fellas.

ANOTHER comeback victory On today’s ‘sode I take you through another -- yes, ANOTHER! -- Knicks come-from-behind victory, this time against the undermanned Utah Jazz. Keys to the victory include an outstanding 4th quarter from Tim Hardaway Jr., 2nd half team defense, and the all around winning play of Frank Ntilikina. Listen!

Knicks 106, Jazz 101: ‘Knee to the butt bone’

Knicks 106, Jazz 101: ‘Knee to the butt bone’

The Knicks won, and Courtney Lee’s butt is unhurt. I had to work on both Monday and Wednesday nights, which meant two consecutive Knicks games on replay. The Knicks may have won Wednesday’s contest with the Utah Jazz, but in all honesty the highs could never match what we saw in Monday’s game against the Cavs. In contrast to the rollicking, emotionally-charged ball we saw against LeBron James and Co., the Knicks appeared sluggish and disinterested at times, particularly on defense, and especially particularly guarding the dreaded three-ball. Fortunately, the ‘Bockers also left fans...

Knicks , Jazz : Scenes from a non-harmonic arpeggio

Knicks , Jazz : Scenes from a non-harmonic arpeggio

It sounds good. It sure felt like this was going to be a let down game, as Utah came to the Garden without their star big man in the lineup. The Jazz were just tough, methodical and professional. These young Knicks almost seemed unsure of how to beat a team that doesn’t get swallowed up by their own mistakes. There were flashes of the hustle and smarts we’re coming to know from them but the Jazz were able to keep them at bay. Then the Knicks started building up some steam. They got a miraculous buzzer-beating three from Tim Hardaway Jr. to save an oil spill of a play. That was the...
