Kenyon Martin started in place of Tyson Chandler, who is dealing with a bulging disk. Martin, who came into the game nursing a sore left knee, suffered an ankle injury after coming down with a rebound early in the fourth quarter.
They hung nicely in the lockers, T-shirts that can only be won, not bought. “Can’t Stop NY Knicks,” they read. “2013 Division Champions.”
The Knicks’ season can be separated into three distinct parts: their hot start, their mediocre middle and their hot finish. Taking a look at how the Knicks played in each section gives a good read of what they need to do in order to win games.
Look who has the NBA’s longest winning streak now.
The job has actually been made easier by the Knicks’ injury problems. But there’s still the matter of New York’s starting lineup — and who will get minutes with the second group off the bench.
When the Knicks struggle, they aren’t moving the basketball. What are Prigioni’s two strengths? He plays defense and moves the basketball.
To the relief of Knicks fans everywhere, Iman Shumpert isn’t expected to join the team’s long list of injured players.
Carmelo Anthony returned to the New York Knicks’ lineup on Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic.
On Wednesday, Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire added Tyson Chandler to their knee support group. Three of the team’s highest-paid players have knees that are not providing an adequate return on investment.
The Knicks looked great in the first half on Sunday. It was November all over again. It was beautiful basketball. Then the second half started.
For all the talk about Anthony, if the Knicks don’t get consistent performances out of a good percentage of their second-tier players, they aren’t going to win. It doesn’t have to be every guy every night, but they need a few to play well every night.
Everything else will take care of itself if the Knicks start to guard people. It’s all that matters. It’s everything.
Woodson can’t just expect Melo to elevate his team on the floor. Anthony is a great player and a gifted scorer, but he doesn’t automatically make a team a champion. The coach needs to see — from film, numbers or gut — the writing on the wall.
General manager Glen Grunwald hopes the newly acquired Kenyon Martin can help New York achieve its goal — an NBA championship.
The Knicks traded shooting guard/small forward Ronnie Brewer to the Oklahoma City Thunder for a second-round pick and cash considerations. New York also agreed in principle to sign 12-year veteran Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract.
