For once, we can be thankful for a good basketball team in New York.
The Knicks know how to win ugly and well — that’s beautiful.
The Knicks dominated the woeful Indiana Pacers on Sunday, 88-76.
It was an ugly win for the Knicks, and they’ll have more as the season goes along. But I hope that Mike Woodson makes sure his team understands that slippage like that against better teams will result in losses.
I realize that the Knicks won’t maintain their three-point shooting. I know we still haven’t seen Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire play together yet. But I truly believe that this team is for real, and here’s why.
The Knicks have come out of the gates strongly by starting their season 2-0 after defeating the Sixers on Sunday.
Carmelo Anthony had 30 points and 10 rebounds, and the Knicks gave suffering New Yorkers something to cheer with a 104-84 victory over the Miami Heat in their storm-delayed season opener Friday night.
I want to see if the Knicks can do a better job slowing down LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Both players got into the lane way too easily last year against the Knicks. The Knicks have to play the pick-and-roll better and improve their individual defense.
LeBron James and the champs. Opening night at MSG. Under normal circumstances, as electric a scene as there is in the NBA. Things are still far from normal in New York.
Schmeelk says the Knicks can go as high as a two seed or as low as a sixth seed. Do you agree?
All in all, until Stoudemire gets back, here’s how I see Woodson breaking down the 240 minutes available in an NBA game.
Even with two healthy feet, Lopez is no more than a statue defending the pick-and-roll. I found his attempts to corral Knicks point guard Raymond Felton last night a useful teaching tool to my 13-year-old son as to what not to do in those situations.
Carmelo Anthony could very well be the Knicks’ power forward on opening night. This position switch has a lot of Knicks fans and NBA statistical gurus excited. I understand some of their sentiment, but much of it is based on wishful thinking rather than reality.
On the surface it’s a minor injury, but it’s still a big setback considering how important the preseason was supposed to be to get the Knicks’ chemistry issues straightened out.
Whether in the newspapers, in blogs or on Twitter, the running joke about the Knicks is their advanced age. They’ve been called geriatric, ancient and elderly. The average age will say this is an old team, but stats are deceiving.
