17 days. Eight games. All on the road. Monday night starts the defining portion of the Nets’ schedule.
Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has confirmed that the Knicks will be without Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler against the Clippers on Sunday.
The Knicks have signed Kenyon Martin for the remainder of the season.
J.R. Smith had 33 points and Kenyon Martin added 12 to lead New York, which went ice cold in second half, shooting just 33 percent.
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 game is over. Knee, you win. Please, please, leave the Knicks alone. They’ve had enough. Mercy, please.
With the crowd jeering him and his knee barking at him, Carmelo Anthony had one of his worst games ever in Denver, his home for the first eight seasons of his NBA career.
If Stoudemire doesn’t nearly singlehandedly return the Knicks to respectability in 2010, does Carmelo Anthony demand a trade to the Knicks? I think not, but there’s no way to know for sure.
This was not a bad loss for the Knicks. They had no business even being in the game. It was, however, a brutal game for Mike Woodson.
The Kevin Durant-Carmelo Anthony duel was postponed, though J.R. Smith filled in nicely – for three quarters.
Raymond Felton scored 26 points, and the New York Knicks pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Detroit Pistons 87-77 on Wednesday night despite Carmelo Anthony’s absence.
The Knicks are an arrogant basketball team. It should have cost them a win on Monday night, and they were lucky it didn’t. It could cost them this season if they don’t figure it out soon.
Carmelo Anthony tripped, stumbled and fell. The New York Knicks picked themselves up and won without him.
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.
Even if the New York Knicks were looking ahead to their game against the Miami Heat, Carmelo Anthony made sure his team still picked up a victory over the Washington Wizards along the way.
