Cavaliers 90, Knicks 87

Cleveland Cavaliers 90 Final Recap | Box Score 87 New York Knicks Amar’e Stoudemire, PF 30 MIN | 8-13 FG | 2-2 FT | 9 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 5 TO | 18 PTS | +8 It was mostly good. The MONSTER SLAM at the beginning of the 4th Quarter over Varejao was a thing of beauty that sent visions of fall 2010 running through MSG. STAT unleashed some crafty low post moves and played some good defense in space on PNR, leading to a clanged Marion corner 3 and then a Shumpert/Carmelo …continue reading

First Quarterly Review: 6-on-5

Welcome to the KnickerBlogger First Quarterly review! We are basically done with the first quarter of this futility-of-existence-confirming monstrosity season, and the Phil Jackson era is off to a bit of a rough start.

Simultaneously horrified and unable to look away at this car crash that is the Knicks’ beginning of the season, we Knickerbloggers got together for a 6-on-5 to discuss the Triangle, Coach Derek Fisher’s lineups, and any positive developments (stop laughing!) from the past 20 games Knicks fans can cling to. 1. So, this team …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Cavaliers

Tonight is an important game for the Knicks. Their victory in the second game of the season against the Cavaliers was the Knicks’ best win of the season. However, that win was one of the Knicks’ only victories of the season, to the point where if they lose tonight they will officially have the worst record through 20 games in Knick history, and the Knicks have had a lot of bad seasons (they’ve lost 59 games four times!) so it would be nice if the Knicks didn’t have the worst record in the history of the franchise, but it doesn’t …continue reading

At this point, I’m going to assume that Fisher generates a lineup and subsequent substitution patterns by writing out every Knick’s name on an index card and plops them down on the plush shag carpeting, cranks the heat in his office up to 100 degrees, puts on three heavy nylon …continue reading
