Los Angeles Clippers 124 – New York Knicks 113 – (Live) Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — Ok, thanks to the Italy-friendly time, I’ll try to do a new thing today: a live-game recap! I’ll scribble down notes as the game goes by, just to spice it up a little… let’s see if it will come down as a coherent writing or just a warbled mess! – Oh no, again this starting five. – I miss the days of yore when home teams played in white and the other team...

Utah Jazz 137 – New York Knicks 116 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — “Hello, my friend. Stay awhile and listen”* Today I’d like to tell you the story of Dorando Pietri. I don’t know if many of you already know it just as I don’t know if I use this example pretty often just because the guy was Italian and the episode got stuck in my mind in a bizarre exercise of weird patriotism. You see, Dorando Pietri was a marathon runner from a...

New York Knicks 92 – Toronto Raptors 128 – Again, not a Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — Honestly I don’t know what to tell you. This game was probably the worst of the season in terms of actual appeal (I think the Utah one was a bit worse thanks to that dismal first half, but I’m getting to the point where I’m not caring about anything Knicks related for the season. It’s a side effect of the fact that we have so few rootable guys around, I guess) and I...

Los Angeles Lakers 123 – New York Knicks 124 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — I beat LA and all I got is this Hezonja block. Games like this, man. They are exactly what’s wrong with this team. It’s weird to say that after a win, and somehow a wildly amusing one, what with the fact that we swept the Lakers during the worst season in Knicks’ history and forced a loss upon the self-appointed King of MSG. Nonetheless, you just have to look at the minutes...

New York Knicks 98 – Indiana Pacers 103 – Half a Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — I wonder how workers’ unions do their job in the States. Watching these Knicks games I can’t help but being reminded how sad the unions situation is in Italy. I have been the CEO of a very small company and a board member of a quite larger one (>140 employees), so from time to time I had to deal with union representatives, and I found a constant in all of my five years holding...

New York Knicks 92 – Minnesota Timberwolves 103 – Not a Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — We’re getting to the point where every game more or less looks like the last one, or the next one: an endless blur of players sucking, strange coaching, players disappearing due to injury or whateverness, uninspired play from veterans and rookies alike, and a distinct trend to hit the forward button everytime Mitch is not on the court. I mean, I could tell you things about this game (and...

NY Post: Draft-night whispers, Kidd hint: Frank Ntilikina’s Knicks future fading

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Here’s the thing with Marc Berman “mouthpiece” articles. They’re seriously just repeating whatever he gets told at any given moment. The issue is that we never know if he’s being used to test the waters on a particular idea or if what he is repeating is actually what the Knicks are planning. I believe he has excellent sources (including almost certainly the...

New York Knicks 96 – Phoenix Suns 107 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — Midway through the fourth quarter of this game, I started feeling really sad. Was it because of the score? Nah. Losing to the Suns, in the grand scheme of things, is great. Watching the game less so, but whatever. I watched worse things (like, I don’t know, pineapple pizza). Was it because I had to set the alarm at 6:30 am to watch the game (March is by far the worst month in my job....

New York Knicks 108 – Sacramento Kings 115 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — There has been some talk about player development around here in the last days (while I missed the Clippers recapping task due to work, I still read a lot of comments!), and how maybe someone in the Knicks organization knows what he’s doing, case in point Mitchell Robinson, who doesn’t foul that much anymore and rebounds better. I think this game showed quite clearly that Fiz has...

Cleveland Cavaliers 125 – New York Knicks 118 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — MSG, PRESS ROOM: Things open up in medias res, with COACH FIZDALE having just finished his press conference where he said “We’re not tanking, we’re trying to win every game while developing our youngsters, I feel lucky to have Mills, Perry and Mr. Dolan supporting me in this enterprise”. COACH FIZDALE walks away from the podium and exits the room. He takes a quick look...

NY Post: ‘We don’t play to lose’: Knicks not focusing on lottery odds

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — From Zach Braziller: David Fizdale understands. He gets Knicks fans’ desire to secure the best possible odds to land the best possible prospect. Who wouldn’t want Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett or Ja Morant? But it’s not going to change anything about how he coaches his team. “I’m not wired to lose on purpose,” Fizdale said Wednesday. “That just is not, I can’t even get my body to function that...

Orlando Magic 103 – New York Knicks 108 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — You already know I played some 2KNBA games in the past (I didn’t buy 2K19, I have some sort of on-again off-again relationship with the franchise). You already know I like to play MyPlayer/MyCareer as my go-to mode. You already know, also, that my build of choice is a stocky SF/PF that plays like a ground bound Shawn Marion with no dribble skills whatsoever. I don’t know why, but...

NY Post: The next step in Dennis Smith’s Knicks progression

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — The day after Dennis Smith Jr.’s spectacular Sunday performance, the Knicks’ potential point guard of the future was slated to go on a food-shopping date. And it wasn’t just any food-shopping date. Knicks coach David Fizdale had himself a talk with Smith on Saturday after he benched him in the fourth quarter of Friday’s first game out of the All-Star break. The lengthy player-coach discussion...

San Antonio Spurs 118 – New York Knicks 130 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — Quick: when was the last time you felt this good about the potential of our team? I think it has to be when KP was posting 30ppg to start the 2017-18 season and things looked rosy (and possibly unsustainable). While it looks that everytime we play the Spurs at MSG we put on our best face, it was tremendously refreshing to see this team perform well and to see some pieces click together so...
