2020-21 Game Thread: Non-Losing Record Knicks vs. Pistons

The Knicks have an amazing opportunity tonight to actually have a winning record, which would put them at their best record through 35 games since the 2012-13 season (the 2015-16 Knicks actually got to 22-22 after 44 games, which is the last time the Knicks were .500 that late in a season, but that team […]

NY Post: Knicks nip Pacers to reach .500, pull into fourth place in Eastern Conference

From Peter Botte: Twice in the previous 10 days, the Knicks had wasted opportunities to push their record to the .500 mark in unsightly losses to the Magic and the Warriors. They appeared headed for another blown chance to even their record and move up in the murky Eastern Conference on Saturday night. Coach Tom […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Pacers

The Knicks host the Pacers tonight with a real chance to get to .500 on the season, which would be the latest the Knicks have been at .500 in a season since the 2016-17 season, so that would be cool! Not only that, but it would put the Knicks up on the Pacers in the […]

NY Post: Immanuel Quickley puts on show for Knicks fans in win

From Marc Berman: The “We Want Quickley’’ chant began late in the first quarter when Sacramento was putting together a rare run. With 2:44 left in the quarter, Immanuel Quickley was inserted into the game and he didn’t disappoint the second giddy Garden gathering of the season. In sparking the Knicks with 18 first-half points, […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks and Their Starting Point Guard, Derrick Rose vs. Kings

If only Nerlens Noel could also miss this game and then Thibs could start Taj Gibson, as well. I’m kidding, really, as obviously with Payton out, Rose was clearly going to be the starter and honestly, if it’s just a temporary situation, you probably don’t even want Quickley moving to the starting lineup for just […]

NY Post: Knicks clipped by Warriors in first game with fans back at MSG

From Marc Berman: It was as if 11 months of enthusiastic fervor had been unleashed in one night at the Garden. A lively, loud crowd of 2,000 cheered the Knicks, heckled the Warriors and booed the referees Tuesday night. But in the end, the season’s first Garden crowd — which a team spokesman called a […]

2020-21 Game Thread: All-Star Julius Randle and the Knicks vs. Warriors

Congrats to Julius Randle, for making the All-Star team (he made it over Damontas Sabonis, even, who was snubbed in favor of Nikola Vucevic). The Knicks host the Golden State Warriors with a chance to get to .500! Let’s see if the Knicks can celebrate Randle’s honor by getting the team to .500 at the […]

NBA Eastern Conference All-Star Reserves Predictions

We’re only a couple of hours away from learning whether Randle makes the All-Star Team. I think his chances are good, but let’s do some predictions for the rather difficult Eastern reserves (lots of good options out there). And, of course, it is all polls!

NY Post: Knicks take down Timberwolves, get Ryan Saunders fired

From Peter Botte: Fans finally will return to the Garden in limited numbers beginning Tuesday, two nights after the Knicks barely avoided a catastrophic loss against the league’s worst team in their final game in front of an empty arena. The Knicks flushed a 21-point second-half lead, but they ultimately gave Tom Thibodeau the gift […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Timberwolves

After a cancelation yesterday, the Knicks are back in action, hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Garden tonight. The two worst teams of 2021 had been the Wolves and the Magic and the Knicks just lost to the Magic, so you obviously can’t totally look past the Wolves and just as obviously, the Wolves have […]
