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
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

We’re not sure, but we’re guessing it was one of these.
[New York Daily News] Kristaps Porzingis’ Knicks jerseys are scarce commodity (Thu, 19 Nov 2015 05:20:12 GMT) Knicks jerseys with the No. 6 on them aren’t exactly flying off the virtual shelves of NBA.com. [New York Times] Butler, Bulls Blast Past Suns (Thu, 19 Nov 2015 07:42:27 GMT) Chicago guard Jimmy Butler was lamenting his shooting touch of late before facing Phoenix but in the fourth quarter, with his team in need of a finishing kick, Butler scored 14 of his season-high 32 points as the Bulls beat the Suns 103-97. [New York Times] Butler’s Season-High 32 Power Bulls Past …continue reading
Part of me was inclined to begin this recap by discussing the Knicks excellent ball movement this evening (61.1% of their FG were assisted, Melo had 5+ assists for the third time this season, and four others had 3+). Another wanted to point out how efficient the team was, hitting 10 of 20 from deep and 20 of 21 from the line – which would build upon the first point, as their extra passes generated open looks from the perimeter, and caused the Hornets defense to collapse. And I even thought about leading off with Kevin Seraphin putting together another …continue reading
