Pistons 98, Knicks 95; Knicks Lose To Winless Team – Retroactively Forfeit All Previous Wins, 1973, 1970 NBA Titles

With their win tonight, the Pistons pick up their first victory of the season, leaving just the Sixers and Lakers as the only winless teams, so that’s a big feather in the Knicks’ cap. With their loss, the Knicks sit at 2-3 and have lost two consecutive games. If that trend continues for the rest of the season, they will finish at 2-80, which will be the worst record in NBA history (assuming the Sixers and Lakers eventually win three games). Here’s what happened: New York Knicks 95 FinalRecap | Box Score 98 Detroit Pistons Carmelo Anthony, SF 39 MIN …continue reading

2014-15 Game Thread: Knicks @ Pistons

Is it just me or does it seem slightly unreasonable to schedule in the first two weeks of the season two back-to-back games where the team is traveling from New York to the Midwest? Why not a back-to-back where both games are on the road? Or where the second game is not such a long journey? Just seems odd to me.

Seems like a stretch to me, but …continue reading

Smith up to old tricks as Knicks lose to Wizards, 98-83 (Wed, 05 Nov 2014 06:20:11 GMT) It was early in the third quarter when the vaunted triangle offense quickly deteriorated into “Please …continue reading

Game Preview and Thread: Knicks vs. Wizards

To get set for tonight’s matchup against the Washington Wizards, we hooked up with Conor D. Dirks of the TrueHoop Network’s Truth About It. Me n’ Robert Silverman talked Knicks over at their place too. Link’ll be up soon. It was a tad surprising to see Washington ditch their starting small forward, Trevor Ariza, filling the gap on the wing with Paul Pierce. What’s the primary cost of Ariza’s exit, and how might we expect Pierce to fit in alongside Otto Porter Jr. and Rasual Butler Wall & Beal? Also, on a scale of one to 1995 Pat Riley, how much more …continue reading
