2021 NBA Playoffs Game Thread: Knicks vs Hawks, Game 1…of the Playoffs. Meaning the Knicks are in the Playoffs.

The Knicks host the Atlanta Hawks as they play in a playoff game for the first time in eight years (interestingly, also the last time that they hosted the first game of a playoff series). One of the concerns about the Knicks was every game being played like Game 7 and the team possibly being […]

Knicks vs. Hawks Playoffs Preview

It’s been so long since we’ve done a Knicks playoff preview that I am unsure how to actually do one. So let me do it as a matchups sort of deal. POINT GUARD The Hawks’ star player is Trae Young, a talented scorer and disher who will forever be known as the guy that the […]

Knicks 2020-21 Regular Season Report Cards

We have time to kill, so let me quickly grade the Knicks regular season efforts and you can all chime in with your own grades. Here’s the big rule – A is the highest grade you can get. I hate that, like, “A” “A+” and “A++++” or whatever. This is like the NBA max. Once […]

NY Post: It’s All Happening, People!

Okay, I came up with that modified headline.

After their excellent win against the Hornets yesterday and the Heat’s resounding loss to the Bucks, the Knicks only have to win today to get the #4 seed, home court in the first round of the playoffs and the Atlanta Hawks instead of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Today is more or less the “make or break” day for the Knicks in their quest to get the #4 seed. They play the Hornets and the Heat later tonight take on the Milwaukee Bucks, who are still in line to possibly get the #2 seed from the Nets (unlikely, but possible). If the Knicks […]

NY Post: Alec Burks sparks comeback as Knicks stay alive for No. 4 seed in East

From Marc Berman: These Knicks never stop impressing with their fortitude and resiliency. On their return to the Garden after a six-game, 11-day Western road trip, and with one of their top performers, Derrick Rose, out with a sprained ankle, the Knicks fell behind by 17 points to the Spurs during a third-quarter disaster Thursday. […]

The Knicks head into their last three games of the regular season (but the season period, as they will be playing in the postseason. Woohoo!) with a big homestand.

NY Post: Knicks lose OT crusher to Lakers as playoff clinch will have to wait

From Marc Berman: Knicks superfan Spike Lee looked up, at the Staples Center scoreboard, shaking his head, staring at the replay of Wesley Matthews’ putback. Lee couldn’t believe it. Neither could Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau. The Knicks’ playoff-clinching celebration will have to wait. The clincher got away — along with that one lost rebound. In […]
