The Dallas Mavericks finally have a win over one of the top four teams headed to the Western Conference playoffs â?? just in time for their own postseason push.
The Celtics lost for a fifth straight time and showed no sense of urgency in a game against the Knicks.
With one more victory, the Knicks can claim the season series against the Celtics for the first time in nine years, and that chance will come Sunday at Madison Square Garden.
Nikola Pekovic had 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 105-82 rout of the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night.
J.R. Smith scored 32 points, Carmelo Anthony added 29 and the New York Knicks extended their winning streak to five games with a 100-85 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.
The twins Markieff and Marcus Morris play for the Suns, a team that is no stranger to twins and brotherly dynamics in the N.B.A.
The last thing the Knicks would ever be accused of is rooting for the Miami Heat. But they are willing to make an exception if it means getting the opportunity to break Miami’s incredible winning streak.
The Knicks all but put an end to the Boston Celtics five-year reign over the Atlantic Division, no doubt about it. And in the process Mike Woodson’s club might have set up a first round playoff series with their hated rivals.
BOSTON — Until this season, Carmelo Anthony hadn’t won in Boston since joining the New York Knicks. But he has now done it twice — on Jan. 24 and Tuesday night.
And when it happens potentially again and again — perhaps in the playoffs if the two teams meet in the first round — Melo will be immensely satisfied just the same every single time.
“We want to beat them,” he said after the Knicks blew out the Boston Celtics, 100-85. “Let’s just be quite frank about them: We always want to beat Boston.
BOSTON â?? If the Celtics were hoping to get the Knicks in the first round, as they did in 2011, they may want to revise their playoff wish list.
Celtics star Paul Pierce said before last night’s tip-off he would like to send a message to the Knicks in their…
BOSTON â?? You want to know how a building, how a team, how a city gets in your head? Mike Woodson can tell you how a building, how a team, how a city can get in your head. Woodson played in the NBA from 1980 through 1990, 11 seasons in which…
BOSTON â?? With the sacred defense of, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,â? the Knicks offer into evidence the following little factoid.
Guard Pablo Prigioni has made five starts. The Knicks are 5-0 in those games.
Want to guess who likely gets his sixth start of the season…
BOSTON â?? It was something you couldn’t help but notice. With Kevin Garnett laid up with a bum ankle, the Celtics’ interior defense looked about as fearsome as that baby in the on-line stock trading commercials.
J.R. Smith, for one, noticed.
“They really didn’t have any shot blockers…
BOSTON â?? The South Beach showdown is six days away, but Mike Woodson is hoping the Miami Dream Team enters with a 30-game win streak.
“They’re playing at such a high level, nobody is coming close to beating them,” Woodson said before the Knicks’ 100-85 win over the Celtics last…
TAMPA â?? Lyle Overbay has three days to show the Yankees he is a better option at first base than Juan Rivera.
In reality, that won’t be difficult because Overbay’s glove skills are above average and Rivera is an outfielder pressed into first-base duty because of Mark Teixeira’s…
BOSTON â?? For the Knicks, the news on Tyson Chandler was not good. The veteran center still wasn’t ready to play last night because of a bulging disk in his cervical spine and is not expected to play tonight against Memphis. Chandler also said he has experienced sensations down into…
