Nerlens Noel stepping up to be Knicks’ stabilizing force

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The surging Knicks have won six of eight games since starting center Mitchell Robinson broke his hand, moving above .500 this late in any season for the first time since 2012-13 and into fourth place in the Eastern Conference with Sunday’s convincing win in Detroit. They have done so with a “next-man-up” philosophy under coach...

Pistons’ Wayne Ellington sees big difference in Tom Thibodeau’s Knicks

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The Knicks have improved drastically under first-year head coach Tom Thibodeau, winning 18 of their first 35 games after needing 60 games to reach that victory total last season. Take it from a member of their 21-45 squad in 2019-20, a player who was on the wrong end of Sunday’s 109-90 pasting in Detroit. “It...

Nerlens Noel’s dynamic play is easing Knicks’ depth issues

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Who needs another center? The Knicks have Nerlens Noel. Mitchell Robinson has a broken hand. Backup center Taj Gibson was back in New York with a sprained ankle and could be out awhile. Coach Tom Thibodeau faced the Pistons on Sunday with one healthy center. And it was more than enough. The Knicks didn’t die...

Julius Randle-RJ Barrett is electric duo Knicks have longed for

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — It wasn’t supposed to be like this for the Knicks, who haven’t had a legit 1-2 punch, a Butch and Sundance, in too many years to remember. For a few years there was hope that Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony might become that — never happened. As good as the ’90s-era Knicks were Patrick Ewing...

Julius Randle carries Knicks to significant win over Pistons

After six previous seasons being part of losing teams, Randle has spearheaded the Knicks to a winning record — achieved Sunday with a 109-90 rout of the Pistons at Little Caesars Arena. The Knicks moved to 18-17 and hold fourth place...

Walt Frazier isn’t on board with Kobe Bryant being NBA logo

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks legend Walt Frazier said on Sunday’s broadcast the NBA logo shouldn’t be Jerry West. And it shouldn’t be Kobe Bryant. There’s been a recent groundswell of support to change the logo’s silhouette from West to Bryant. Frazier, during MSG Network’s telecast of the Knicks’ 109-90 win over the Pistons, proposed a logo that would...

Dennis Smith Jr. looks reborn with Pistons ahead of Knicks matchup

NY Post (Marc Berman) — With the Pistons losing starting point guard Delon Wright to a groin strain and the Knicks losing Elfrid Payton to a hamstring strain, Sunday’s Motown PG matchup is set.

Knicks’ Nerlen Noels steps up after Taj Gibson exits with injury

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Starting center Mitchell Robinson is out following hand surgery, so it was hardly ideal for the Knicks when Taj Gibson limped to the locker room during the first half Saturday night. Nerlens Noel remained in the game after Gibson’s departure, despite having three fouls and he logged a season-high 41 minutes as the Knicks pulled...

Leon Rose’s Knicks project working, but he’s had help

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks are a .500 team. Leon Rose can take a bow as his anniversary as team president approaches. But Scott Perry could take some credit too — if he were here. One of the benefits of attending games at the Garden in person and not watching on television is getting a view of the...

Facing uncertain future, Knicks’ Austin Rivers not seen on bench

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Austin Rivers, who has labeled his future with the Knicks as uncertain, was not seen on the bench during any part of their 110-107 victory over the Pacers on Saturday night at the Garden. Rivers was taken out of the rotation when the Knicks acquired Derrick Rose in a trade earlier this month. Then, in...

Knicks fans dropping hundreds on last-minute COVID tests before games

NY Post (Sara Dorn, Khristina Narizhnaya) — Knicks fans desperate to get back to Madison Square Garden are ponying up $250 for last-minute COVID tests before tip off, in order to meet new state testing rules for large venues. Under the regulations that went into effect Feb. 23, venues with more than 10,000 people can operate at 10 percent capacity — as...

Knicks nip Pacers to finally reach .500

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Twice in the previous 10 days, the Knicks had wasted opportunities to push their record to the .500 mark in unsightly losses to the Magic and Warriors. They appeared headed for another blown chance to even their record and move up in the crowded Eastern Conference on Saturday night. Tom Thibodeau’s surging squad stormed back...

Derrick Rose-Tom Thibodeau relationship yielding more success for Knicks

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Aligned in their third NBA organization together, Tom Thibodeau and Derrick Rose clearly trust each other. The 32-year-old point guard, who was obtained by the Knicks earlier this month, moved seamlessly into the starting lineup in place of injured starter Elfrid Payton in Thursday’s win over the Kings. After overcoming multiple knee injuries, Rose no...

Is this the start of a golden era in New York sports?

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — I remember the conversation well. This was as confetti was raining down on old Giants Stadium, a few minutes after Giants 41, Vikings 0, a score that meant the Giants would be playing in the Super Bowl in a couple of weeks. I was on the phone with an old editor of mine and he...

Frank Ntilikina’s return to Knicks lineup will likely be short lived

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Frank Ntilikina’s first game appearance in nearly two months was a productive one, but it wasn’t likely to alter Tom Thibodeau’s 10-man rotation once starting point guard Elfrid Payton returns to the Knicks’ lineup. Payton, who sat out Thursday’s win over the Kings, “did a lot of training” Friday and “we’ll see where he is”...
