2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Sixers

After playing the 76ers very tight in their last game in Philadelphia, the Knicks are lucky that the Sixers are on the second night of a back-to-back and playing without Seth Curry (who burned the Knicks last game) and, of course, their MVP candidate, Joel Embiid. The Knicks, meanwhile, get Immanuel Quickley and Mitchell Robinson […]

NY Post: Julius Randle, Alec Burks lead Knicks past pesky Magic

From Peter Botte: Tom Thibodeau often lauds his Knicks’ roster for its versatility, with the ability to run their offense through All-Star power forward Julius Randle and veteran guard Alec Burks, if needed. Such a necessity never felt more immediate for the Knicks this season than it did Thursday night, when those two players fronted […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Magic Without Any Point Guards Involved At All

The Knicks host the Orlando Magic, who are slumping terribly and due to injuries, are missing all of their point guards and the Knicks are also missing all of their point guards, so it is Chasson Randle vs. Frank Ntilikina. This is going to be a hilarious game. Luckily, for all of the Knick injuries, […]

NY Post: Knicks no match for Tobias Harris, fade late in loss to 76ers

From Marc Berman: Long Island’s Tobias Harris quietly fumed when he was not selected to the NBA All-Star Game after helping the Sixers to the best record in the Eastern Conference. Harris sure looked like he had a strong case Tuesday night. For one night, he took it out on his hometown team that was […]

NY Post: James Harden adds another triple-double as Nets drop rival Knicks

From Brien Lewis: For the Nets, it was a laugher that ended up as an escape. For the Knicks, it was a comeback that fell short and ended in a tantrum. The red-hot Nets outlasted their cross-river rivals 117-112 in front of 1,637 at Barclays Center on Monday night. It wasn’t simple or easy, but […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Nets

The Knicks head to Brooklyn to take on the Nets in part one of a rough back-to-back affair, with the Nets tonight and then the Sixers tomorrow night. Both the Nets and the Sixers have been on crazy hot streaks, with the Nets seemingly poised to take over the top spot in the Eastern Conference, […]

NY Post: RJ Barrett has career day as Knicks rebound to thump Thunder

From Peter Botte: The Knicks face one of the NBA’s most daunting schedules for the remainder of the season, which only increased the importance of Saturday’s visit to Oklahoma City to help maintain their playoff positioning. RJ Barrett netted a career-high 32 points as coach Tom Thibodeau’s team bounced back from a blowout loss Thursday […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Thunder Without SGA

The Knicks head to Oklahoma City this afternoon to take on the SGA-less OKC Thunder. The Knicks are in the midst of a tough four-game road trip and holy shit, did they need to hear that SGA wasn’t going to play today! He’s by far the best player on OKC and pretty much where all […]

NY Post: Knicks walloped by Bucks in first game after All-Star break

From Marc Berman: In what the franchise prays is not a harbinger, the Knicks initiated the season’s second half in Milwaukee in disastrous form Thursday. After all the hope garnered from their season’s first half, the Knicks looked unrecognizable as they fell behind by 35 points in the fourth quarter at Fiserv Forum. The Bucks, […]

2020-21 Game Thread: Knicks @ Bucks

The Knicks kick off the second half of their season by traveling to Milwaukee to take on the Milwaukee Bucks, who are playing pretty well overall, but a notable step below the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, the Nets and the Sixers. The Knicks will be without Derrick Rose (still in the COVID-19 […]
