The Knicks take on the Washington Wizards on Halloween Night, the second night of a back-to-back for the Wizards. Hopefully they will be tired out and the Knicks will be able to take advantage. John Wall and Bradley Beal are a tough matchup for the Knicks’ current starting backcourt, but hopefully they’ll be able to hang in there until the faster second unit enters the game. Former Wizard and new Knicks Kevin Seraphim makes his season debut tonight. Hopefully he torments his former team! Let’s go Knicks!

Things certainly got interesting after the Knickerbockers got a clinic in what a free-flowing offense actually looks like in today’s NBA. Not to say the Knicks were terrible, but the Hawks were simply just so so so much better offensively. While I’ll get into the game in just a minute, can we all give Derek Fisher a round of applause for passive aggressively telling the New York media to chill the hell out? During his postgame press conference, Coach Fisher was asked if he would consider making any lineup changes. After spending 15-20 seconds essentially dancing around the question, he …continue reading

Q: How has Porzingis developed since the summer league? A: I've seen tremendous improvement. He seems to be more aggressive, more relaxed.

Well, there goes the ‘Bockers chance to start out 2-0 for the first time in 16 seasons. A tragedy of epic proportions, n’est pas? Just thumbing through the box score, but a couple of things stand out. * The Knicks finished the game with 21 turnovers. This is not good. * The Calderon/Vujacic backcourt pales in comparison to the young turks, namely Messrs. Grant and Galloway, idling on the pine. The starters finished a combined 2-13 with only 3 assists. Those frisky kids put up a nifty 4-8 from the field with 11 rebounds and 10 assists. * Carmelo Anthony’s preseason net splashing …continue reading
Sorry, folks, there was a bit of confusion. One of our newest writers, Heather Rose, will be handling the recap of the game tonight, but I thought that that meant that she would be starting the game thread, as well. My mistake. Welcome to the Knicks’ home opener, as the Knicks try to run the Hawks out of the Garden. The Hawks looked sluggish in a Game 1 loss to the Pistons. Can the Knicks follow up yesterday’s amazing blowout victory with another win over a playoff team from last year? Let’s hope so! Let’s go Knicks! We join the …continue reading
Below are my notes from last night’s game. National Anthem: So my building was sold again this year, which means I have to go through the process of training a new set of owners how appartments need heat. This is seriously affecting my drink choices. I’ve been home all day, and I’m freezing, so I’m thinking winter time beverages. In the fridge is some heavy cream, so I’m going with a Brandy Alexander. She usually doesn’t make an appearance until Christmas, but I’m wearing a sweatshirt right now. Introductions: CHRIS COPELAND! Wow I love how folksy the Bucks owner is. …continue reading
