Here we go, the first Game 1 of the second round for the Knicks since <b>2000</b>!! The Knicks should win this series, but I think we’ll have a much better idea of where the Knicks stand after this first game and we see if the Pacers have anything sneaky up their sleeves in how they plan to play the Knicks. The first series had Shump play out of his mind and Tyson Chandler slowly got back into shape, so the Knicks are in really good shape right now, and that’s with JR Smith not even playing particularly well! Let’s go …continue reading
Here we go! On a night where the NBA is having four, count ‘em <b>four</b> Game 6′s, for only the second time in league history (granted, the first round has only been seven games since 2003, but still!), the Knicks travel to Boston in an attempt to finally put these pesky Celtics out of their (and our) misery. Tonight, we can hope that the Knicks bury the Celtics with a barrage of three-pointers instead of a barrage of rhetoric. The Knicks are clearly the better team, so they should close things out tonight. It seems hard to believe that the …continue reading
We join the game in progress with the Knicks off to a quick lead. Let’s see them close it out tonight! Let’s go Knicks!
It sure is swell to have a regular season finale where the Knicks don’t actually have to do anything in it. Atlanta needs to win and have Chicago lose for Atlanta to get the #5 seed. It will be interesting to see if Atlanta even tries. Have you seen a more checked out playoff team than Atlanta? Talk about listless! Anyhow, um, go Earl Barron and Q-Rich!?
With both Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony taking off the last game of the season, Carmleo Anthony will officially win the 2012-13 NBA scoring title, the first New York Knick player to do so since Bernard King in 1984-85. In fact, Melo is only the second Knick period to ever do it. Congrats, Melo! By the way, I don’t actually know that Melo won’t get some minutes in tonight’s game. But even if he does, he will still win the title even if he plays and scores zero points.
The Knicks’ winning streak is now the third longest in Knicks history and they have a chance to get closer to the second longest, which was held by the Knick team that came the closest to winning a title since the Knicks’ last title in 1973, the 1993-94 Knicks. What’s amazing is that the Knicks need to win two more games in a row just to have the third longest winning streak in the NBA this season! How crazy is that? Anyhow, this is a big game and luckily for the Knicks, the Bulls have a frontcourt that is just …continue reading
Frank Isola of the Daily News is reporting that the Knicks have reached a deal with free agent forward James Singleton. As a result, Knick power forward Kurt Thomas will be released to make room for Singleton. Thomas will now have surgery on his injured foot. It seems likely that the Knicks waited until it was clear that Thomas would not be able to return to playing this year before they made this move. As we suspected, Thomas’ classic performance against Utah will, in fact, be his last game as a Knick (and likely the last game of his career). …continue reading
