Double-double machine Kanter knows most important number

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — Enes Kanter posted his 20th double-double this season — a 20-point, 15-rebound outing in Sunday’s 110-99 loss to the Pacers. Kanter, a traditional low-post center, even bagged a 3-pointer — his fifth this season. His numbers are All-Star worthy and he’s playing for a new contract. Because of his enormous cap hold, it...

Kevin Knox faces draft buddy as free-throw problem worsens

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — Across the past seven games, Kevin Knox has come on offensively, even if his free-throw shooting is a puzzling mess. Knox regained his starting slot the past four games, so it’s a good time to face Phoenix’s rookie small forward, Mikal Bridges, who also is starting for the moribund Suns and making a...

Knicks’ shooting is downright embarrassing as a game gets away

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — There is no big body of water in this heartland city, but if there were, the Knicks couldn’t have thrown the ball into it Sunday. At Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the Knicks were throwing up bricks and some airballs and were beaten by the Pacers 110-99 after wasting a rare but solid defensive performance....

Lance Thomas’ return gives Knicks a Noah Vonleh dilemma

Luke Kornet’s big chance with the Knicks has arrived

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — While rookie center Mitchell Robinson can jump to Pluto, Luke Kornet can’t jump at all. At least not according to Knicks coach David Fizdale. When asked if the 7-foot-1, second-year brainiac out of Vanderbilt is a sneaky shotblocker, Fizdale said: “He’s got good anticipation. He can only jump over an envelope, but he’s...

David Fizdale: Why this Bulls mess couldn’t happen to Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — Despite a 9-21 record through 30 games, first-year Knicks coach David Fizdale hasn’t found the need to stage a practice after a back-to-back set — a traditional NBA no-no. However, his comeback-kid Knicks have never fallen by 56 points. If they had, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility. Fizdale believes...

Mitchell Robinson, Frank Ntilikina injuries dampen night

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — As center Luke Kornet and point guard Emmanuel Mudiay became heroes Friday against the Hornets, Mitchell Robinson and Frank Ntilikina became casualties — each suffering an ankle sprain in the Knicks’ 126-124 overtime victory. In a scary moment, Robinson, the Knicks’ rookie project, landed awkwardly on his left ankle after snatching a...

Unlikely heroes lead Knicks to shocking overtime victory

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE — This time the comeback stuck. Point guard Emmanuel Mudiay and unlikely center Luke Kornet rallied the Knicks from an awful first half during which they trailed by 21 points to stun Charlotte 126-124 in overtime at Spectrum Center to break a five-game losing streak. In a wild one, Mudiay electrified in the second...

Allonzo Trier doesn’t want to hear from fake friends after deal

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — Allonzo Trier would like to know where all these people were when his bank account wasn’t so full. The Knicks’ undrafted rookie, who earned a two-year, $6.8 million contract Thursday after impressing on his two-way G-League deal, wasn’t falling for some of his supposed friends who have since checked in with him. “I appreciate the...

David Fizdale won’t let Knicks get down despite dismal record

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE — After 29 games last season, Jeff Hornacek’s Knicks were 16-13 before it all fell apart — Tim Hardaway Jr.’s stress fracture in early December the start of the comedown. David Fizdale’s Knicks have already fallen apart — record-wise. You’d never know it, though, by the merriment surrounding the team across this mountain of...

Having escaped the roster guillotine Thursday, the 7-foot, 23-year-old center out of Vanderbilt has a new lease on his Knicks career and coach David Fizdale has promised to use him more. Fizdale already spotted Kornet on Wednesday in a 113-106 loss to Cleveland, playing...

David Fizdale has an idea what the future holds for Ron Baker

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — If David Fizdale needs an assistant coach in the distant future, he wouldn’t hesitate to call on Ron Baker. And that’s what he told Baker when they spoke on Thursday morning. The Knicks cut Baker on Thursday, ending his 2½-season Knicks run to make room for Allonzo Trier’s two-way contract conversion. The...

Allonzo Trier’s charmed season may be Knicks’ Kevin Durant key

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Knicks’ conversion of Allonzo Trier’s two-way G-League contract into a standard NBA deal for two years and $6.8 million — completed Thursday — could eat into some cap space reserved for Warriors’ free-agent-to-be Kevin Durant. According to a source, the second year of the deal is a team option, but the...

Joakim Noah partied too hard in New York to play well for Knicks

NY Post (Anthony Barstow) — It would be kind to describe Joakim Noah’s time in New York as tumultuous. Now newly with the Memphis Grizzlies, the big man has opened up about what he thinks went wrong with the Knicks, and at least some of it has to do with enjoying the New York City night light a bit too...
