He was super-aggressive and made quick decisions on his post-ups, spinning and winning and grinning his way to 18 free throw attempts. This aggression led to a number of …continue reading

2012-13 Game Thread: Knicks vs. 76ers

[Editor's note: We had multiple game threads up earlier, but they're now consolidated, just so we can either rejoice or weep all together in one tidy e-place.] Tonight’s game is big in so many ways. First off, most importantly is that the Knicks have lost four straight games so it is certainly always good to get a win when you’ve lost so many games in a row. Secondly, this should be the introduction of Kenyon Martin as a Knick. With the Knicks’ lack of frontcourt depth (with Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace being out), Martin might play a very important …continue reading

[ESPN.com - New York Knicks] Notes: Awful third; Gay's big day (Sat, 23 Feb 2013 00:31:51 EDT) The Knicks dropped a 100-98 heartbreaker to the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre on Friday thanks to a disaster of a third quarter and big contributions from Raptors Rudy Gay and Kyle Lowry down the stretch. Losers of four straight, they are just one game up on the Brooklyn Nets for the top spot in the Atlantic Division. Rudy Gay’s big night: When the Knicks played the Raptors before the All-Star break, they held Gay to 11 points on 4-for-21 shooting. …continue reading

Raptors 100, Knicks 98

Magic. When you have it in basketball, magic can make the fleeting sublime seems permanent and the ball borderline sentient – its path through the basket more a matter of gravity than chance. Magic turns mere men into agents, of a calling and cause at once closer to god and further from us. But what happens when the magic runs out? To which church do we turn when the cottage comes down? In the bosom of what brothel wench does one bury his head when the switches and double-teams have singed his soul? Towards what port does one steer a …continue reading

2012-13 Game Thread: Knicks @ Raptors

If ever there was a time for a statement game, this would be it. The Knicks lost to the Raptors right before the break in one of the ugliest games of the season and then followed that up by being absolutely destroyed by the Indiana Pacers in the first game of the second half. If there’s still some fight left in these Knicks (and I certainly believe there to be), they will exact their revenge on the Raptors tonight. You have to believe that Melo will be ready for Landy Field’s defense tonight and will torch the former Knick. But, …continue reading
