Well, the other night I said that the Knicks had to have a winning record on this West Coast trip to have a real shot at catching the Hawks for the #8 seed. So while the Phoenix loss was horrible, so long as they win tonight they will likely (hopefully?) have a winning record on this trip and they’ll have a real chance (the weird thing is that the Hawks are playing so poorly that even if the Knicks lose tonight, there’s no guarantee that the Knicks won’t still be right in the thick of the “race” for the 8th …continue reading
Well, if the Knicks are going to win enough games to make the playoffs, they really have to win at least one of the next two games. Let’s hope that it is tonight’s game! Let’s go Knicks!
We pick up in the second quarter with the Knicks somehow not trailing by thirty points. Let’s go Knicks because, well, why not?

The Knicks were helped out earlier today by Toronto, who defeated the Hawks (with Kyle Korver out, the Hawks could be due for a lot more losses – they seem to be one of those teams where they really cannot withstand a loss to two of their big guys.

So if the Knicks beat the Cavaliers tonight, the Knicks will be just three games back of the Hawks in the loss column (I say …continue reading
Oops, I thought that this was a 7:30 PM start. My apologies! Angus Crawford ads: A tale of two streaks: your New York Knickerbockers travel to the Liberty City to confront the inimitable PHILadelphia 76ers. After that heartwarming home triumph over Indiana on Wednesday night, the Knicks have now strung together seven straight wins, and are officially 1-0 in the PHIL Jackson era. The Sixers, however, are approaching league history (in an unenviable way), as their questionable PHILosophical approach destines the organization for the likely PHILanthropy of majestic ping-pong balls. There’s hope that the Knicks’ ceremonially welcomed new President & …continue reading
I really don’t know if this is necessarily news, since nothing has actually been formally agreed to (remember when it looked like Jackson was going to be the Lakers coach last year?), but I think that since it is dominating the Knicks news universe, we might as well have a thread for it. From Chris Broussard in the ESPN.com article… Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks are expected to finalize a deal that will give the legendary coach control of the club’s front office by the end of this week, according to a league source. “Everything is pretty much …continue reading
