[New York Daily News] Bondy: A sharp J.R. Smith is good start for Knicks (Mon, 17 Nov 2014 05:18:14 GMT) On a good day, against a lousy opponent, this can still work. J.R. …continue reading

Knicks 109, Nuggets 93

Denver Nuggets 93 Final Recap | Box Score 109 New York Knicks It’s a lazy Sunday, and so we’ll be brief here in the Ancient Kingdom of Recapperia. But lawdy be, I’ve done gone and buried the lede. For shame, noble ‘Bocker-scrivener… for shame. The Knicks emerged from the dark twoer that was a seven-game losing streak to pummel the lowly Hunks o’ Precious Stones, not so much because they’ve managed to solve all the endemic, structural issues that plague this ball club, but mainly because the kindly schedule-maker set up a tilt against a squad as utterly hapless (if …continue reading

Game thread and Eulogy: Knicks v. Nuggets

Next to nobody is going to read this.  And that is probably a good thing because besides the fact that it is written by easily the least talented member of the staff, there really isn’t anything a Knick fan is going to want to see here. To the old site vets who know better than to waste your time, good call.  To any newbies or optimists, you have been warned. Still here? Okay then. I’ve looked at the schedule and concluded that we are doomed.  Including this Sunday matinee the Knicks have 24 games left until the end of the …continue reading

[New York Daily News] Iman Shumpert: No finger-pointing on Knicks like last season (Sun, 16 Nov 2014 01:34:40 GMT) Derek Fisher had a couple of interesting things to say this week, even before his animated “that’s New York City” speech in which he gushed about his team’s effort following the …continue reading

Knicks Morning News (2014.11.15)

[New York Daily News] Melo hits clutch 3, but Jazz buzzer-beater sinks Knicks (Sat, 15 Nov 2014 06:36:37 GMT) The second-lowest scoring team in the NBA was without two of its top three offensive players before even one minute had elapsed. And even Carmelo Anthony’s first true scoring explosion of the season went for naught. [New York Daily News] Bondy: Derek is Fishing deep to find any Knicks positives (Sat, 15 Nov 2014 06:28:40 GMT) It’s part of the job description, maybe, written into the contract. There comes a time in the life of every frustrated-as-hell coach when he must …continue reading

Game Preview and Thread: Knicks vs. Jazz

So this jumbled, ragtag collection of Knickerbockers have burped their way to six straight losses. Le sigh. They’ll be looking to buck that trend in the upcoming five-game stint against 2014 lottery teams (unless, you know, you’re down with the whole Hinkie-ing thing). There are two more supposedly soft tussles on tap in their four-game home stand, starting with the friendly fellows from the Mormon State tonight. Friday night Knicks, y’all. Save for a certain rookie coach’s eerily Woodson-ian, shaky lineups, it’s tough to get truly pissed at macro issues at this juncture. Thankfully, Ben Dowsett of Salt City Hoops (along with Hardwood Paroxysm, Nylon Calculus, …continue reading
