Knicks 99, Hawks 90: Scenes from the finest defensive effort of the season

Knicks 99, Hawks 90: Scenes from the finest defensive effort of the season

Photo by Scott Cunningham/NBAE via The Knicks locked down the Hawks in the fourth. The New York Knicks had payback on their mind Saturday night as they took on the Atlanta Hawks for the first time since their playoff exit last season. Unfortunately, they were missing four role players in Kemba Walker, Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson and Nerlens Noel. Tom Thibodeau would be forced to adjust his beloved rotations, inserting Alec Burk into the starting lineup and using rookies Quentin Grimes and Jericho Sims off the bench. To say it worked would be an understatement. Burks...

Photo by Bart Young/NBAE via Leave it to Quickley. The Knicks take on the Atlanta Hawks for the first time since their decisive victory in the 2021 Summer League. Do these two teams have any other recent history? Not that I remember. Derrick Rose and Kemba Walker are out. Taj Gibson and (maybe) Nerlens Noel are out as well. That is suboptimal. Game is at 7:30 on MSG. Peachtree Hoops is the nest for all Hawks coverage you may desire. Please don’t post any large images or gifs in the comments, and be nice to one another. Go the Knicks!

Suns 118, Knicks 97: Scenes from a loss to a far superior opponent

Suns 118, Knicks 97: Scenes from a loss to a far superior opponent

Photo by Elsa/ The Suns are good, yo. The Phoenix Suns are a really, really good basketball team. If that fact wasn’t apparent last year when they blitzed their way through the Western Conference playoffs, it should be apparent now that they’ve won 15 games in a row. Unfortunately for Knicks fans, their club isn’t anywhere near Phoenix’s level right now. They showed as much Friday night in a 118-97 loss. The Knicks actually started the game hot, but the Suns (especially Devin Booker) were even hotter. They methodically built up a 13-point lead at halftime, and...

Photo by Jeff Haynes/NBAE via Knicks should play way better, IMO. Last time the Knicks faced the Chicago Bulls, they won what appeared to be a matchup of Eastern Conference heavyweights. Since that time, the Bulls have improved, while the Knicks have generally sucked against an easy schedule. The guys had better get their shit together Sunday night in Chicago, or they’re going to get slaughtered. Taj Gibson and Mitchell Robinson are both out. Kemba Walker is playing the second night of a back-to-back for some reason. Tip-off is at 8:00 PM on MSG. This is your game...

Knicks 106, Rockets 99: Scenes from the game Alec Burks saved

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Thank Burks. It wasn’t pretty — in fact, it was one of the ugliest games of the season — but the New York Knicks held off the dreadful Houston Rockets Saturday night at the Garden, 106-99. The Rockets came into this game losers of 13 straight. The Knicks have developed a disturbing tendency to play down to their competition, and Saturday’s game was no different. New York scored 13 points in the first quarter and Houston had a 10-point lead at one point in the first half. The Knicks came back and the contest turned into a...

Magic 104, Knicks 98: ‘They don’t want you to live/They don’t want you to ball’

Magic 104, Knicks 98: ‘They don’t want you to live/They don’t want you to ball’

Photo by Elsa/ R.I.P. Young Dolph. So, I agreed to take this recap less than an hour before we all found out Adolph Robert Thornton Jr., better known to the world as Young Dolph, was tragically shot and killed outside of a local bakery in his native Memphis. By all accounts he was a kind and generous person, a dedicated father who loved his family. He was 36 years old. Whenever a person, any person, as young as Dolph is killed, it’s a tragedy, but this was particularly bad. For anyone paying attention to regional rap scenes, especially one as historic and ingrained...

Magic 104, Knicks 98: Scenes from a game even the bench couldn’t salvage

Magic 104, Knicks 98: Scenes from a game even the bench couldn’t salvage

Photo by Elsa/ Blergh. Sorry for the late postgame thread. I actually missed the fourth quarter with some baby issues. Fortunately, I’ve been told that I’ve seen enough Knicks games to figure out what happened. The Knicks’ starting lineup was poop once again, squandering the lead in the second quarter, building a substantial deficit in the third quarter. The bench, led by Obi Toppin (14 points on 6-9 shooting, team-high plus-11) brought the team back, only to be supplanted yet again by Julius Randle (13 points on 4-11 shooting, team-worst minus-21!!!). Whatever....

Hornets 104, Knicks 96: Scenes from yet another starting five disaster class

Photo by Jared C. Tilton/ Crap. For the second game in a row, the New York Knicks’ starting lineup shat all over themselves in the third quarter. And for the second game in a row, the bench brought the team back to life. They didn’t quite have the juice Wednesday night against the Bucks, and they didn’t even get the chance to finish tonight in Charlotte, as Tom Thibodeau went back to the starters to finish off a desultory 104-96 loss. The game actually started off quite well for the Knicks, as the much-maligned Kemba Walker went off at his old home gym, finishing...

Bucks 112, Knicks 100: Scenes from a three-point barrage spoiling a miraculous comeback

Photo by Al Bello/ The bench nearly brought New York alllll the way back. Ugh. That one hurt. For the past two weeks, the Knicks — especially the starters — have been screwing around at home. They continue to rack up losses at MSG, and Wednesday night’s contest against the Milwaukee Bucks was no different. Once again, the game followed a familiar format: the starters build up a massive deficit and the bench propels them back into the game. Usually head coach Tom Thibodeau rewards the second unit by sitting them for the last few minutes, much to the consternation...
