  • [New York Post] Knicks need Carmelo’s Bernard-like play tonight (Mon, 26 Nov 2012 03:44:21 -0500)

    Carmelo Anthony calls Bernard King his idol. The two are a couple of shooting stars from Brooklyn, separated only by basketball generations.
    Melo did his best Bernard imitation yesterday at the Garden as he scorched the Pistons, hitting his first six shots, scoring 21 points in the first half from…

    So you wanted to know what happened to the Knicks who began the season 8-1 before resembling a gathering of World War I veterans for two games. So did the Knicks.
    Based on yesterday’s
    121-100 pummeling of the Pistons at the Garden, they didn’t go anywhere. They just…

    The biggest, most important game in the history of mankind â?? or at least since the last time the Yankees and Red Sox played â?? is scheduled tonight for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where the Nets finally get to show off their new digs to the Knicks. The game originally was…

  • [New York Post] Knicks-Nets starts new chapter tonight (Mon, 26 Nov 2012 04:25:18 -0500)

  • [New York Post] A real chants to ratchet up rivalry (Mon, 26 Nov 2012 03:44:20 -0500)

    With eight minutes left in the fourth quarter yesterday afternoon, the crowd at Barclays Center began chanting “Brooook-lynnn â?¦ Brooook-lynnn.â?
    Perhaps not so coincidently, the Nets launched an 11-2 run that secured a 98-85 victory over the Blazers yesterday and reinforced the notion Barclays Center is fast becoming the kind of…

  • [New York Daily News] Bondy: Brooklyn in Knicks’ sights as they aim for boro blast (Mon, 26 Nov 2012 03:08:23 GMT)

    Home is where the heat is, where NBA crowds turn visitors to mental mush and where the home team is expected to stomp out all flickering hope from opponents, right from the start. Mike Woodson has been making that point to his players all year, and the lesson seems to be taking.

  • [New York Daily News] Novak brings back belt in 18-point night (Mon, 26 Nov 2012 03:07:57 GMT)

    The belt is back. Knicks sharpshooter Steve Novak dropped a season-high 18 points on the Pistons in Sunday’s 121-100 victory at the Garden, sinking 5-of-7 3-pointers and scoring his other three points from the free-throw line after being fouled behind the arc.

    1. The Knicks’ 3-point shooting has been just insane. Look at this ish:

      Carmelo Anthony .419
      Ray Felton .444
      JR Smith .500
      Jason Kidd .500
      Ronnie Brewer .423
      Steve Novak .403
      Rasheed Wallace .324

      Now compare that to the career three-point percentages of those players:

      Carmelo Anthony .326 (+.093)
      Ray Felton .333 (+.111)
      JR Smith .371 (+.129)
      Jason Kidd .350 (+.150)
      Ronnie Brewer .259 (+.164)
      Steve Novak .403 (-.031)
      Rasheed Wallace .337 (-.013)

      Doesn’t seem very sustainable. Hopefully the defense will get it going again to make up for it when that ridiculous shooting inevitably drops off.

    2. as ruru’s been saying, all 3 point shots are not created equal. NY has been getting a lot of wide open looks and if that continues, the hot shooting might be somewhat sustainable.

      the quantity of made 3s is maybe even more incredible, by the way. I think we have something like 20 more made 3s in the first 12 games of a season than any team has ever had before (last year’s ORL team had the old record).
