Cavs 117 Knicks 88

I had a change of heart last night right before tip-off. I decided to put my rational thoughts aside and buy some Knicks-colored glasses. My new outlook on life seemed perfect as the Knicks were only down by 3 at the half. And then the second half started. THE GOOD Porzingis: With 16 points on 13 shots and a couple of blocks. Yes the defensive scheme in the second half left him on an island, but he played pretty well. Slow and steady progress… THE OK Rose: I’ll take 17 points on 17 shots from Rose, although can we cut …continue reading

Knicks 2017 Game Thread: at Cavs

The unbeaten New York Knicks head to the swing stage of Ohio to match up with last season’s champions the Cleveland Cavaliers. The winner of this game will be at the top of the Eastern Conference, and the new look Knicks are looking to establish themselves as the league’s premier team. Noted sports expert and AM Radio host Craig Carton claimed that New York was the third best team in the Conference, but Knick fans won’t let his pessimism damper their hopes for the 2017 season. This Knicks team is so loaded, that the odds for them winning a championship …continue reading

Knicks 2017 Roundtable: Season Wins

The Vegas line is 38.5, if I set it to 40.5, are you going over or under? Fisher-Cohen: The Knicks registered assists on 62.6% of their preseason field goals and finished preseason with the 5th best offense. Last season, they only assisted on 55.7% of their field goals. Unfortunately, it’s the preseason… The Kings finished with the 6th best offense. It gives me something to hope for this season, but I don’t expect the Knicks to be a great offensive team, and one talented yet injury prone center won’t make up for terrible perimeter defense. We’ve seen that movie before …continue reading

Knicks 2017 Rountable: Carmelo Anthony

Look into your crystal ball, and tell us what you see for Carmelo Anthony in 2017. Fisher-Cohen: If the team plays uptempo, Melo will benefit from the transition threes on which he thrived in his two best seasons in NY. I don’t think, unfortunately, over the course of a season, 32 year old Melo can be the guy who draws the defense and creates opportunities for others every possession. There was only one player age 32+ last season who played 1800 minutes with a BPM over +1.0: Pau Gasol. This is out of 64 total players who accomplished the feat. …continue reading
