Hornets 137, Knicks 128 (OT): “Treyverson!”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — All things considered, it was a good death. The gap between good NBA teams and bad NBA teams is narrow. The most dominant team from year-to-year, on average, only outscores opponents by an average of one basket every quarter. The gap between a pretty bad team and a really bad team playing out the string in late March is virtually non-existent. Exhibit A: the Knicks’ 137-128 overtime loss in...

Hornets 137, Knicks 128: Scenes from Trey Burke, the rich man’s A.I.

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Burke! Boy, no team finds quite as many ways to crush your soul as the New York Knicks . The ‘Bockers came from 17 down to take a fourth-quarter lead on the Charlotte Hornets thanks to the heroics of Trey Burke (42 points!!!! 12 assists!!! I kid you not!). Unfortunately, they let Kemba Walker, who had been 0-8 from three prior, hit a game-tying triple in the waning seconds, and then the...

Knicks 101, Wizards 97: ‘I hope we bring back Burke’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — That would be a good idea. The New York Knicks beat the Washington Wizards Sunday, 101-97. The big blow for the Knicks came in the second quarter, when they scored 42 points. Their offense was fairly mediocre in the other three quarters, though they did score just enough down the stretch to pull out the win. The hero of the evening was Trey Burke, who chipped in a game-high 19 points...

Knicks 101, Wizards 97: Scenes from Trey Burke’s triumphant return to the starting lineup

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Knicks win. The New York Knicks held off the Washington Wizards Sunday afternoon/evening, 101-97. The ‘Bockers held a double-digit lead early in the third quarter, though the Wiz quickly chipped away at most of it, and held a lead of their own briefly in the fourth. But New York hit just enough shots, spurred on by Courtney Lee and Trey Burke. Burke was the hero of the night, chipping...

Timberwolves 108, Knicks 104: ‘At least it was quite watchable basketball’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Quite. That wasn’t so bad, was it? The New York Knicks lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves , 108-104, in a game that featured a decent amount of inspired play and—dare I say it—good coaching decisions. As P&T’er xobserverx noted, it was watchable, which is pretty much all that matters these days. The biggest story line to come out of Friday night was Jeff Hornacek ’s decision to bench...

Timberwolves 108, Knicks 104: Scenes from a potential changing of the (point) guard

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Frank and Trey Mudiay. So, this was a fairly enjoyable Knicks game! Truly! The ‘Bockers struggled mightily out of the gate against a vastly superior Minnesota Timberwolves team, but then stormed back with a few impressive runs before ultimately yielding to the tank: 108-104 Wolves is your final. Tim Hardaway Jr. had a career-high 39 points, and went thermonuclear in the third quarter,...

March mailbag part 3 - What is the Knicks’ biggest mistake the past 15 years?

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — I love this team, but.... In part two of this mailbag, we dove into some of the Knicks ’ worst decisions over the past 15 years. Here in part three, let’s dissect the big three, in ascending order of WTFness: The Chauncey Billups/Tyson Chandler exchange At the end of 2011, the Knicks picked up the option on Billups’ contract: one year, $14M. That December, shortly before the...

The Knicks players REALLY enjoyed riding out the Nor’Easter in Miami

Posting and Toasting (chiniqua) — Knicks Weather the Storm. Greetings, Knicks fans. There’s a good chance that where you are is seeing some, well, unseasonable weather. From Cleveland to DC to Cape Cod, there’s a pretty little storm hanging out: wunderground.com The Federal Government shut down, NYC schools had a snow day, JFK closed, Justin Timberlake cancelled his concert, Upper West Siders are...

Heat 119, Knicks 98: Scenes from the return of the tank

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Re-turrrrrn of the tank. For once the New York Knicks didn’t wait until the third quarter to get their asses handed to them. In most of their recent losses, the ‘Bockers wait until after halftime to roll over and show their bellies. This time the Miami Heat bench—hippie cave troll Kelly Olynyk chiefly among them—made sure the game was out of reach with a 37-21 second quarter en route to...

March mailsack part 2 - What is the Knicks’ biggest mistake the past 15 years?

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — This may take a while. In part one of the March mailsack we discussed drafting ninth vs. trading down, wondered whom the Knicks should look out for and avoid the next couple free agent classes, and continued our proud tradition of hypothesizing genetically manipulated duck-centric battle royales . Part two is just one question, but it’s such a doozy it’s gonna need a third mailbag to...

Locked on Knicks, Episode 276: Who wants it more-ish?

Posting and Toasting (James Marceda) — The Knicks? I guess? On today’s ‘sode I share my thoughts on the tank vs tank BLOCKBUSTER between New York and Chicago. Should the Bulls be ashamed of themselves? How many lowlights can be squeezed into one half of basketball? Does it make sense to consistently bring guys in for the first time in the 4th quarter?

Knicks 110, Bulls 92: This team is a bunch of noodles

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Nobody was a noodle. Run away win for the Knickerbockers this fair evening. Chicago hung tight in the first half and Christiano Felicio quite certainly got busy in the third quarter but so did Tim Hardaway. Timmy busted through the defense and took it to the house, then started blasting shots like rockets, breaking the whole game open with it’s arm out the socket. After failing to crack...
