Beno Udrih isn’t the only player who appears to be beyond the point of frustrated. Several Knicks voiced their displeasure after Monday’s loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
Joe Johnson scored 25 points, as the Brooklyn Nets sent the Knicks to a fourth straight loss with a 103-80 victory Monday, evening this season’s New York rivalry at a game apiece.
Deron Williams returned to the Brooklyn Nets in a reserve role and Pablo Prigioni started for the Knicks as both New York teams got point guards back Monday.
The Knicks are slowly turning it around, and looking more like the team that won night after night last season. But there’s one thing they haven’t been able to do. They can’t close games.
Carmelo Anthony had 29 points and 16 rebounds, and the New York Knicks held the Phoenix Suns without a field goal in overtime to win 98-96 on Monday night for their fifth straight victory.
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.
This group of players has run its course, as has the Carmelo Anthony era. The trade for Melo was a failure. The idea of building around him hasn’t worked. It’s time to accept it, cut losses and move on.
Knicks owner James Dolan has reportedly told his players that no major changes will be made to the roster or coaching staff.
The Knicks and Nets were both set to play on Christmas Day, but a pair of 9 and 18 records has left some fans disappointed.
Knicks star Carmelo Anthony will be a game-time decision for their Christmas matchup with the Thunder. Anthony sprained his left ankle in New York’s 103-98 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday.
I decided it was time for me to play part Santa Claus and part Wizard of Oz and give the Knicks much better gifts than they have ever given their fan base.
The Knicks could be boosted by the return of point guard Raymond Felton when they face the Orlando Magic on Monday.
To say the Knicks’ guards have been bad this year would be an understatement. To call them the worst collection of guards in the NBA would be accurate. It’s that horrid.
The injury leaves New York with only two healthy point guards on its roster: Beno Udrih and rookie Toure’ Murry.
Here’s the issue: Lowry is a free agent after this season. If the Knicks want to re-sign him long-term it will probably cost them around eight million dollars a season, give or take. That type of contract will make it nearly impossible for the Knicks to bring in another max player in the 2015 offseason if Carmelo Anthony signs a max extension this summer.
