After a brutal start to the season, the Knicks battled all the way back to grab a slim lead over the Hawks for the eighth and final playoff spot. And just like that, it’s gone.
Before sharing the social network footprints left by Smith, Craig declared that the guard should be a Knick for life…
Smith has played well in 2014, and his improved play is one of the reasons the Knicks are two games over .500 since the calendar flipped to 2014.
J.R. Smith had 24 points, eight rebounds and six assists, Carmelo Anthony added 23 points and 10 rebounds, and the New York Knicks beat the city rival Brooklyn Nets 110-81 Wednesday night to extend a late-season playoff push.
There’s a reason they call him the Zen Master. Jackson knows his No. 1 priority is to put a winning product on the court. To that end, he plans on molding the mental state of his players.
Why should fans even turn on MSG to watch the Knicks anymore? It’s so much more fun watching the real version of the Walking Dead on AMC.
Joakim Noah had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assists for his fifth career triple-double, leading the streaking Chicago Bulls to a 109-90 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday.
From J.R. Smith being suspended to start the season to Raymond Felton now facing gun charges, the Knicks are on pace for the biggest one-year free fall in franchise history.
“No, your eyes were playing tricks on you,” he said with a laugh after the game. “You’re reaching for that one. I (already) got fined once for that s—.”
Anthony scored a career-high 62 points to break the franchise and current Madison Square Garden records, and the Knicks beat the Charlotte Bobcats 125-96 on Friday night to stop a five-game losing streak.
This whole episode is simply another perfect example of how chaotic and disorganized the Knicks’ management structure is. Nothing is ever handled the right way.
“I stopped being surprised after the Miami game,” Smith said. “I haven’t the slightest clue … If I’m not helping the team, there’s no point in me being here.”
Knicks guard J.R. Smith says there was no indication he’d be benched in Thursday’s 102-92 win over Miami. “That’s the most misleading part of it,” he said.
It’s amazing what happens when J.R. Smith doesn’t play. It’s nowhere near that simple, of course. But it was a very significant change in direction for the Knicks on Friday night.
Boomer and Craig got this Friday thing going with some Knicks talk, covering both the action on the floor as well as the life and times of JR Smith, as the reigning Sixth Man of the Year was benched by head coach Mike Woodson.
