2010-2011 Game Preview: Knicks v. Nets

So I went to the Stats page to do some research for this game and I couldn’t find the Knicks in the Eastern Conference standings.  It took my about a second to realize that I just needed to look up.  I was scanning the bottom of the standings. Old habits die hard I guess.  Yes, the Knicks are in the top half of the Conference standings a month into the season.  How nice is that? New York (9-9) looks to improve on their 2-5 home record as they host the Nets (6-11).  While the Knicks have found ways to beat weaker teams …continue reading

The Knicks would whittle away and went into the fourth quarter down by only 9. They would cut into the lead and a Wilson Chandler traditional 3 point play brought them within 4 with 10:39 to go. But New York ended the game just as they started, unable to prevent Atlanta from scoring. Late …continue reading

What I, As A Knick Fan, Am Thankful For

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I’m going to list all the things I’m thankful for this year. * Amar’e Stoudemire’s diversity. Yeah I miss David Lee, but Amar’e is a different player that can contribute in more areas. Take for instance tonight’s game where Amar’e had six blocks. Two of them were in the final 2 minutes. Lee’s career high was four against the Celtics in 2006 during a blowout loss. Amar’e is more well rounded, and perhaps that fits this team better. * Danilo Gallinari’s moxie. Gallo battled with Stephen Jackson in a physical match-up, and a couple of …continue reading
