2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. 76ers

While Martin Luther King Day is a special day for all of us, it is especially important in the NBA, where the vast majority of players are African-American. The Knicks, in particular, have a long and proud association with African-American history – the Knicks were the first NBA team to sign an African-American player and, […]

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Spurs

The 2015-16 San Antonio Spurs currently have the largest point differential in National Basketball Association history. That’s kind of nuts, especially when you consider that they’re four games back of the first place team in their conference. They also very possibly will have to play a Kevin Durant/Russell Westbrook Thunder team in the second round […]

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Celtics

You know what would be a fun win? The Knicks winning tonight in Boston against the Celtics, who are 3.5 games ahead of the Knicks for second place in the Atlantic Division (man, the East is so bunched up together – the Celtics are in the #8 spot in the Conference while being just 3 […]

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Timberwolves

Wait, the Knicks still play basketball games? It’s been so long since they last played, I wasn’t sure if the season was over. Anyhow, this should be a really fun game tonight as the two best rookies this season, Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis, face off against each other. I’d love to see them get […]

The Knicks go to Milwaukee to try to get over .500. Let’s go, Porzingis and friends!

Kristaps Porzingis Named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month

Congrats to Kristaps Porzingis for being named the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for October/November! He was so good that one month wasn’t enough!

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Sixers

So the Knicks are: A. home B. playing against a team that has lost 18 of their first 19 games this season C. playing against a team that has lost 18 of their first 19 games this season but won their last one, so they’re not even trying to avoid a crazy losing streak anymore […]

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Magic

Woah, I thought this was a 7:30 PM game time! Okay, so the Knicks try to rebound from a bad loss to Miami by showing that they can beat some of the feisty back-of-the-standings Eastern Conference teams, which there are suddenly a lot of. Let’s go Knicks!

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Heat

The Knicks try to make it five in a row against a Miami Heat team that, for some reason, are miffed at the attention that Kristaps Porzingis is getting. I really don’t get it. Just shut up and play the game, Miami. Tonight would be a huge win, as not only would it be five […]

2015-16 Game Thread: Knicks @ Rockets

To paraphrase Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne, everything’s coming Knicks right now. A day after playing the Thunder sans Kevin Durant, the Knicks get to take on the Rockets without Dwight Howard (the Rockets are resting him on the second night of back-to-backs, which is not a terrible idea, I guess, but seems awfully conservative).
