Knicks Morning News (2015.11.22)

[New York Post] Kristaps Porzingis already could be Knicks’ franchise-turning building block (Sun, 22 Nov 2015 01:05:38 -0500) HOUSTON — There are times when you can see Kristaps Porzingis still has a lot of work to do on his game. His offensive moves in the paint with his back to the basket will need an offseason to fully develop. And there are times where he still gets shoved around by smaller men. But… [New York Post] Kristaps Porzingis fills up stat sheet in way Dirk Nowitzki can’t (Sun, 22 Nov 2015 01:01:56 -0500) HOUSTON — Kristaps Porzingis didn't have a …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Rockets

To paraphrase Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne, everything’s coming Knicks right now. A day after playing the Thunder sans Kevin Durant, the Knicks get to take on the Rockets without Dwight Howard (the Rockets are resting him on the second night of back-to-backs, which is not a terrible idea, I guess, but seems awfully conservative). I remember looking at this stretch of games before the season and being like, “Damn, that is a tough stretch of games.” Now it actually looks like it will be the Knicks’ favor, as the Rockets have been playing very poorly this season, led primarily …continue reading

Knicks 93, Thunder 90

Editor’s Note: Following Friday’s far-too-nerve-racking win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Knickerblogger was given exclusive access to rookie sensation and newly crowned Latvian Dictator for Life Kristaps Porzingis. By “exclusive,” of course, we mean “a battalion of Knicks PR supervised the interview with sniper rifles trained on my skull at all times.” Nevertheless, we were able to translate Zinger’s PR-savvy English — solid as it was — into Latvian, and then back into English again. The result is an unfiltered account of New York’s hair-raising win, from the perspective of the franchise’s once and future savior. New York Knicks 93 …continue reading

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Thunder

The Knicks are in Oklahoma City to play the Thunder tonight. Luckily, in a major piece of good news for the Knicks, Kevin Durant will be out for tonight’s game – he is still recovering from an injury. Without Kevin Durant, the Thunder are not a bad team, but they are a very beatable team, as so much of the squad’s success is built around the two man game of Westbrook and Durant. This isn’t to say that tonight will be an easy win, of course, as Westbrook is an extremely strong player who happens to play a position that …continue reading

[New York Times] Warriors Rally, Reach 13-0 With 124-117 Win Over Clippers (Fri, 20 Nov 2015 08:01:14 GMT) With an NBA championship in their back pocket, the Golden State Warriors never feel as though they’re out of a game. Even when trailing by 23 in the …continue reading
