Knicks’ ‘other’ rookie point guard shined against Lonzo Ball

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Lonzo Ball was the rookie point guard that the masses flocked to the Garden to eyeball Tuesday. The young Lakers stud did not disappoint. But neither did the Knicks’ guy, Frank Ntilikina. Maybe seeing the 6-foot-6 Ball, who was the No. 2 pick in the draft, revved up the fellow 19-year-old’s blood. “I have the...

Amar’e Stoudemire’s pointed advice for Kristaps Porzingis

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Amar’e Stoudemire was on hand Tuesday at the Garden for religious reasons, to help the Knicks celebrate Hannukah Night. But the retired ex-Knick also delivered a message to fellow power forward Kristaps Porzingis.

Lonzo Ball talks the ‘greats,’ sets a high bar for his Garden debut

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball traveled to New York one time before this weekend, for the NBA draft.

Is this the revival of Knicks’ fallen point guard?

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Knicks point guard Jarrett Jack used flawless logic while praising teammate Ron Baker. “You never know what may come your way, but you’ve got to be ready for it,” Jack said. “If you’re not ready for the opportunity that comes your way, what’s the point of the opportunity?” The point was Baker was ready. So...

Kristaps Porzingis feels for Lonzo Ball

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Blood is thicker than water. And a lot more trickier to navigate at times. Earlier this season Kristaps Porzingis found himself in the middle of a firestorm caused by his brother Janis, who in a European interview, claimed if the Knicks did not make the star happy, he could bolt. “You cannot upset him much...

Knicks can’t stop raving about Enes Kanter’s dedication

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Enes Kanter showed up for the Knicks game with the Hawks on Sunday on crutches. So naturally, he started. “If you’re going to make the playoffs, you’re going to make some sacrifices,” said Kanter, who was feeling the effects of getting kneed in the hip Saturday in Chicago — an injury that left him on...

Only one way for Knicks to keep Kristaps Porzingis around

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Fans have an obsession with tanking for a high lottery pick, thinking it is the correct strategy for all rebuilding clubs. When Knicks GM Scott Perry met with the media Saturday in Chicago, he sent a message to fans — and his players. No tanks. Team president Steve Mills and Perry aren’t focused on gaining...

Knicks survive late sloppiness in ugly win over Hawks

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Over the past few weeks, the Knicks and their fans have scanned the schedule and pretty much gagged over a potentially murderous 23-game stretch that awaits just before until well after Christmas. But before that run, there was a span of games with potential cupcakes. The key, of course, is to beat them. On Saturday...

Knicks fall to NBA-worst Bulls as Porzingis misses buzzer-beater

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHICAGO — If the Knicks can’t beat the NBA-worst Bulls on the road, who can they beat away from the Garden? A wild rally from eight points down in the final 2:24 got the Knicks to a 102-102 tie, but the Bulls squeaked it out when Kris Dunn got fouled by Courtney Lee with 2.4...

Knicks GM Scott Perry doesn’t have time for “The Process”

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHICAGO — As much as Knicks general manager Scott Perry has referred to the 2017-18 season as one of “development,” he doesn’t want that misconstrued as wanting to lose to get a high lottery pick. In his first denial the new regime went into this season with eyes on tanking, Perry took a shot at...

Why Joakim Noah can still help us: Knicks GM

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHICAGO – Knicks general manager Scott Perry says he hasn’t entertained thoughts of buying out Joakim Noah despite the team’s logjam at center, feeling he may have a role at some juncture.

Frank Ntilikina is confused on how he can best help Knicks

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Frank Ntilikina can impact a game in several ways, but right now the rookie doesn’t know how he should. Following a promising start to the season, the 19-year-old point guard’s production has slipped in nearly every category. Through 21 games, Ntilikina ranks second to last on the team in field-goal percentage (33.6), and since registering...

Porzingis gets his shot against rookie who almost replaced him

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Kristaps Porzingis can laugh about it now. The always-baffling prospect that the Knicks would trade him has only grown more absurd. But when Arizona’s Lauri Markkanen was in New York this offseason, it wasn’t certain Porzingis would remain there. As Phil Jackson considered sending away a 21-year-old who was one of the league’s most unique...

Why fewer Knicks sell outs are not concerning MSG officials

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks are showing they don’t have to sell out to win at the Garden. In an odd quirk, the Knicks have sold out fewer than half their home games this season on their way to an 11-5 home mark. Only seven of 16 Garden games have seen a full capacity of 19,812. The nine...
