Detroit Pistons 100 Final Recap | Box Score 121 New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, SF 32 MIN | 10-18 FG | 5-5 FT | 2 REB | 3 AST | 29 PTS | +20 Another day, another cartoonishly explosive (and efficient) opening quarter for Anthony, who managed to weather a full 48 without goading a zebra into T-baggin’ him for the third consecutive game. Melo wasn’t just hitting his shots; they never so much as grazed the rim, instead sending again and again the net snapping up with a lion-tamer’s lash. In what can only be seen as an encouraging …continue reading
[New York Newsday] Tyson Chandler, Knicks vow to get back on defense (Sun, 25 Nov 2012 01:33:34 EST) Tyson Chandler has taken losses harder than any of the other Knicks players, harder than he did last season. The Knicks' higher expectations could have something to do with it, or perhaps it's because Chandler isn't playing as well as he's capable. [New York Post] Aging Knicks need Amar’e, Iman (Sun, 25 Nov 2012 04:28:30 -0500) Dear Amar’e and Iman: Greetings from Houston. Happy holidays. Get well soon! That would be my succinct Texas postcard to the two Knicks absentee studs. It’s …continue reading
New York Knicks 103 Final Recap | Box Score 131 Houston Rockets Carmelo Anthony, SF 35 MIN | 14-24 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 37 PTS | -12 Let’s get this out of the way. Melo was absolutely brilliant with the rock in his mitts. When he’s hitting threes and taking the ball to the rim aggressively like that, he’s nigh-unstoppable. That’s all fine and dandy. And though he’s not close to being the most egregiously guilty party in the criminally execrable Knick defensive implosion, he was not the ball-hawking, ‘board-snagging beast we’d grown …continue reading
[New York Post] Knicks give Lindefensible effort in loss to Rockets (Sat, 24 Nov 2012 06:17:16 -0500) HOUSTON â?? This was Lindefensible. With all of the magical qualities Linsanity was supposed to possess, who knew one of them would be getting the Knicks to stop playing any defense? The Knicks may well be better off without Jeremy Lin, but certainly not Friday night in a 131-103 disgrace to… [New York Post] Camby odd man out (Sat, 24 Nov 2012 04:26:34 -0500) HOUSTON â?? Rasheed Wallace missed last night’s 131-103 loss to the Rockets with a sore foot, the Knicks announced …continue reading
Well folks, this should be interesting. The long-awaited matchup v. a once-heralded Knick PG who was unceremoniously shipped out of town…Toney Douglas. In all seriousness, so matter what happens tonight, emotions are going to be at a fever pitch. I beseech y’all, be kind to each other. Have at it!
[New York Daily News] Knicks revisit Houston, Jeremy Friday night (Fri, 23 Nov 2012 02:38:13 GMT) HOUSTON â?? Jeremy Lin will greet his former teammates on Friday with a fist bump and perhaps a quick embrace, which is standard NBA protocol before the jump ball. [New York Post] Felton says no doubt he’s better than Lin (Fri, 23 Nov 2012 04:14:39 -0500) HOUSTON â?? Raymond Felton said it’s unfair to compare him with Jeremy Lin. Because there’s no comparison. Felton, Lin’s successor and the Knicks’ new point-guard engine, can once and for all stifle Linsanity talk around the Big Apple …continue reading
[New York Daily News] Down in Big D: Mavs hand Knicks second loss, 114-111 (Thu, 22 Nov 2012 05:49:59 GMT) Forget Linsanity. In their final game before meeting Jeremy Lin for the first time since he left New York, the Knicks were done in by the one-time high flying phenomenon known as Vinsanity. [New York Daily News] Embarrassing Lin not in Knicks’ gameplan (Thu, 22 Nov 2012 02:21:29 GMT) The countdown to Jeremy Lin has begun with Jason Kidd saying that the Knicks won’t be “looking to embarrassâ? the Rockets point guard on Friday but instead will be focused on …continue reading
