Game Recap: Knicks 98, Hawks 107

New York Knicks 98 Final Recap | Box Score 107 Atlanta Hawks Four Things We Saw It’s been an eventful day for the Knicks. First Metta World Peace let it be known, through Twitter, that his agent was working on a buyout from the Knicks. Then, his brother Daniel Artest went off on the Knicks organization, calling Woodson a puppet and “trash as a coach”, calling Dolan “the worst owner in sports” and claiming that the Knicks PR team had him in their office to tell him that his tweets were a distraction. Soon after Metta announced he was seeking …continue reading

Game Recap: Knicks 98, Pelicans 91

New York Knicks 98 Final Recap | Box Score 91 New Orleans Pelicans Five Things We Saw The last game that I wrote a recap for was the overtime marathon with the Bucks, which contained that infamous Bargnani shot. It took over two months of recovery for me to once again volunteer to write a recap. This game was not nearly as traumatic. Thank you for that, Knicks. I’m going to get to the grades in a minute, but I have some other matters to discuss first. Have y’all been obsessing about every trade rumor that has come up the …continue reading

Preview and Game Thread: Knicks at Bobcats

Tonight’s opponent hails from the great state of North Carolina. Like most North Carolinians, I don’t watch many Bobcat games, but I do know how to look up statistics, and we all know that statistics never lie and always tell the complete story. ALWAYS! Let’s take a look at the soon to be Hornets from a statistical perspective! Charlotte Bobcats Record: 15-23, 4th in Southeast, 2-8 in last 10 games PTS/G: 93.0 (28th) Opp PTS/G: 96.6 (5th) Pace: 92.7 (22nd) Off Rtg: 99.6 (29th) Def Rtg: 103.4 (8th) Starting 5 PG – Kemba Walker Is Kemba a good point guard? …continue reading

Game Preview & Thread: Knicks vs. Heat

We all know the Heat and what they bring to the table, but this is the first time this season that the Knicks will play them. Let’s take a quick look at where the Heat are at so far this year. The Team Record: 27-8 PTS/G: 104.9 (5th) Opp PTS/G: 97.9 (7th) Off Rtg: 111.4 (2nd) Def Rtg: 104.0 (9th) The Players It seems like every year a case can be made for Lebron James having the best season of his career. Considering he has been the undeniable (by sane people) best player in the world for nearly a decade, …continue reading

Knicks: Something, Bucks: Something Slightly Less

New York Knicks 107 Final Recap | Box Score 101 Milwaukee Bucks Four Things We Saw It’s not often I get to write recaps, but when I do, it’s for 3 hours of the most awful basketball ever played outside of a preschool gym. I was very much tempted to just forget about the recap template and go on a thousand word rant about how awful and stupid this team is, but decided I would do what the Knicks have proved incapable of: Show some damned structure. These are NBA players, how is it possible to not know the very …continue reading

Sunday Notes and Errata: The Sky is Not Falling?

I was out last night, doing responsible adult things, and missed the first half of the game. But I did check the box score at the half! Bargnani: 15pts 6reb 2blks. Wait, what? I couldn’t wait to get home to watch the second half, to see what the hell was happening. So I turn the game on, and Patrick Ewing is coaching the Bobcats? Where the hell am I? Early in the third quarter Carmelo picks up his 5th assist. Ok, now it’s getting ridiculous. I don’t really know what happened in this game, but here are some notes I …continue reading
