Carmelo Anthony had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and the New York Knicks snapped a seven-game home losing streak by beating the Orlando Magic 121-83 on Friday night for their first victory at Madison Square Garden since October.
The Knicks are no longer the biggest losers in New York. The Brooklyn Nets look like the real Big Apple busts.
If New York City is still a holy basketball land, with ancient, blacktop altars dotting the map, then tonight’s NBA game is a savage sacrilege
Mike Woodson just had three days of practice. I hope he used them well. It might very well be the last days he will have as head coach of the Knicks to turn this thing around. But he needs help from his players.
The Brooklyn Nets, who have been terrible, host the Knicks, who are even worse, on Thursday night. A national TV audience can witness just how bad things are in the Big Apple.
I want to introduce Mike Woodson to someone. His name is George Costanza. He once devised a theory that would do Mike Woodson a lot of good today: do the opposite.
Before Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin were involved in a heated verbal argument after a team workout.
This team isn’t close to winning anything, so bringing back its core player for more money is counterintuitive. He has the most value and the Knicks can get the most for him in a trade.
“When you lose games the way we’ve been losing them at home, on the road, you start thinking a lot. You start playing a little tense. You start playing on your heels.”
We find the Nets and Knicks are Naismith allergic. They can’t play offense or defense. They are injured. They are in discord and disarray.
Carmelo Anthony missed a contested, 14-foot jumper at the buzzer, and the Denver Nuggets hung on for a 97-95 victory over the New York Knicks and their former star player on Friday night.
Kenyon Martin hit a jumper with 4:30 to play, the Knicks were still in it. The Knicks missed their next six shots and scored only two points the rest of the night.
The Knicks’ nightmarish start just keeps getting worse. New York lost its sixth straight game Monday, this one to the Trail Blazers, who put it away early.
Woodson has said things in his post game press conferences this year that are either illogical, lies, or downright false.
After yet another loss for his New York Knicks in what’s been a trying – not to mention 3-9 – start to the season, Carmelo Anthony did not attempt to pretend everything is wonderful right now.
