Anthony scored a game-high 28 points, pulled down nine rebounds and played the role of distributor and decoy to perfection for the …continue reading

The Cereal Bowl: Knicks 89, Celtics 86

Prologue: In Which Our Hero Suffers an Affront to His Honor and the Surreal becomes Commonplace So it’s January 7th and you’re sitting in your living room waiting for the Knicks/Celtics game to start and all of a sudden tires screech and a horn honks and you step outside and there’s Doc Brown in the DeLorean and he’s telling you that you have to go back…back to the future.  Apparently something about a Notre Dame linebacker and a Twitter account and a presidential inauguration and a singer and a scandal and it doesn’t make a lot of sense but he’s …continue reading

The Knicks lost to the Brooklyn Nets, 88-85, but …continue reading
