New York Knicks 94 Final Recap | Box Score 109 Cleveland Cavaliers Patrick Ewing, C 32 MIN | 5-17 FG | 1-2 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 11 PTS | -22 Another beastly effort for the Big Fella tonight. 44 points on 24 shots? That’s better than the Wonderbra! Patrick’s step-back jumper was falling like manna from heaven (And yes, he probably does travel whenever he takes those huge, loping steps into the paint for a hook shot). He provided yeoman defense on both Brad Daugherty and John …continue reading
No Kenyon again tonight so the starters are… (Woodson voice) “Let’s see, tried Timmy Jr., that didn’t work. Started STAT in the 2nd half v. Boston. I’m not a ‘stats’ guy, but that didn’t seem to work. Cole Aldrich is one of those union thugs so I can’t start him. Beno’s a PG and you can never have two of those at the same time or else the universe collapses. JR’s drunk. I can’t spell Toure’ so there’s no way to write his name on the whiteboard. Tyson’s still hurt, right Tyson? (Tyson nods). Welp, since there’s no one left …continue reading
Evidently Nikola Vucevic won’t play tonight. And more importantly, the Knickerbockers will be sporting their white units tonight v. the Disneyworlds. White tonight versus @Orlando_Magic – @colea45 pic.twitter.com/AUgQ9tQQS3 — NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) December 6, 2013 WE CAN BUILD ON THIS. You know what to do… Go Knicks!
New York Knicks 113 Final Recap | Box Score 83 Brooklyn Nets Kenyon Martin, PF 25 MIN | 1-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 4 AST | 2 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 2 PTS | +23 Some solid battlin’ and grindin’ on defense, though his particular brand of bully-ball wasn’t really needed tonight. I’m just impressed that out of all the personal grudges that had a chance to spill over into actual conflict tonight, he somehow managed not to be involved in a single one. Good game, K-Mart. Let’s see it against a …continue reading
I think Steve Kerr is conducting an intervention with Son of Wood. Anyhoo, here are some thoughts from Jeremy Gordon of Brooklyn’s Finest, a gent who’s suffered through almost as much terrible basketball as we have. 1. Hello fellow resident of basketball purgatory! It’s tough to say, but for Knicks fans, one of the few respites from the near-constant awful basketball and general ridicule has been watching you, our fellow Metropolitan team, suffer and struggle. (We’re petty like that) for one, thought BK had assembled a 50-55 win team. In brief, what’s gone wrong? Basically everything? From the beginning this …continue reading
In advance of tonight’s Shame of the Century Player Haters Ball The Toilet Bowl Game, here are some pictures and words and more words from your friendly neighborhood Knickerbloggers. Get us started Mike! New York is buzzing…Nope that’s snoring. Netsest Man In the World Oh Cole, someday you’ll find the right coach. How I’ll be watching the game tonight. How the rest of the NBA will view this game… And now, an adaptation of a Zbigniew Herbert poem by Robert. You can read the original here. REPORT FROM THE BESIEGED BASKETBALL CITY a poem by Robert Silverman …continue reading
Not like we were overly optimistic to begin with, but the Knicks will be rolling in the Gitmo orange uni’s tonight: No. 18 @BenoUdrih1 in orange tonight versus @PelicansNBA pic.twitter.com/ZgmK5J7ySH — NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) December 1, 2013 That’s just swell. For a bit of info on tonight’s winning team opponent, let’s hear from Joe Gerrity of the TrueHoop New Orleans Pelicans blog, Bourbonstreetshots. Much was made of the Pellies’ off season moves — trading Noel for Jrue, spending big bucks on Tyreke. How’s it working out so far? It’s a vague answer, but so far it’s going OK. It’s not yet …continue reading
