Knicks 111, Hawks 107: ‘I love the crowd applauding Beasley fouling out’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Surprisingly fun for such a sloppy game. The New York Knicks are in a weird position, roster-wise. Everybody knows about their glut of well-paid centers, but there is also a logjam at the guard position, with players like Tim Hardaway Jr. , Courtney Lee , Jarrett Jack , Frank Ntilikina , Ron Baker , Damyean Dotson all deserving of minutes based on their play and/or promise. The...

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Two-PG lineups, even! The New York Knicks were forced into some small-ball lineups by the Atlanta Hawks , an injury to Enes Kanter , and straight-up common sense. And it worked! The Knicks worked Atlanta over with a group including Ron Baker , Frank Ntilikina , Jarrett Jack , Doug McDermott and Lance Thomas. The game got wonky at the end thanks to some fouling, but New York managed...

Bulls 104, Knicks 102: ‘Bad team > bad road team’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Crap. Just how bad are the Knicks on the road, exactly? Perhaps we’ve yet to completely plum the depths of their road incompetence, but Saturday night’s loss to the Bulls certain felt like rock bottom at the time. Not only were the Bulls playing the second night of a back-to-back, they are simply not good at the playing of the basketball. You could sense it during the third quarter, when...

Bulls 104, Knicks 102: Scenes from a Windy City heartbreaker

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Ew. The New York Knicks ’ quest to go 1-40 on the road this season continues. The ‘Bockers climbed out of an early 13-point hole against a ghastly Bulls team playing the second night of a back-to-back and took a slight lead in the fourth quarter. Just when a good team would step on the throat of their prey, however, the Knicks got outworked and outsmarted by Chicago as the Bulls pulled...

Learning to appreciate Jarrett Jack, starting NBA point guard

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — This is not supposed to work. Jarrett Jack is an interesting player within the context of this Knicks squad. That's a sentence I would have laughed two months ago. At that point, it appeared Jack was on his way out of the NBA; he was 34, had suffered two consecutive season ending knee injuries, and wasn't even on a roster LAST season until February . Jack was unsigned all summer, and...

Knicks 99, Grizzlies 88: In which I only have nice things to say about Michael Beasley

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — I’m just as surprised as you are! Some semblance of normalcy appeared to hover around our beloved New York Knicks Wednesday night. Sure, Tim Hardaway Jr. was on the bench in a walking boot, but the Unicorn himself, Kristaps Porzingis , returned to the starting lineup. And, as they have done more often than not with Kristaps this season, the Knicks defeated the Memphis Grizzlies ,...

Knicks 99, Grizzlies 88: Scenes from a fun night

Posting and Toasting (Alex Wolfe) — KP didn’t play great, yet the Knicks still won and were fun! You’d be excused if the Tim Hardaway Jr. injury news earlier kinda took the wind out of your Knicks sails. But, tonight, the Knicks were out to prove that they might still be alright, and they made a nice little comeback from a first-half deficit to beat the Grizz, 99-88. Yes indeed, tonight was a fun one all around. Let’s take a...

Locked on Knicks, Episode 219: Stealth tanking with Beasley, KP appreciation, Pacers post-mortem

Posting and Toasting (James Marceda) — Do the Knicks care that Michael Beasley is bad? Michael Beasley hasn’t been great, but is it possible his offense has been just as bad as his defense? AND FURTHERMORE, is it possible the Knicks don’t care ? The Knicks need KP (duh!), but how much better are they when he’s around than when he isn’t? Can something like that be measured with our current technology? Is it beyond the grasp...

Tim Hardaway Jr. will miss at least 2 weeks with lower leg injury

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Boo, legs! Have you ever noticed how the Knicks don’t seem to be very good without the services of Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. ? Well at least one of those player won’t be back for a while. Hardaway will miss at least the next two weeks as he undergoes treatment and rehabilitation for a stress injury in his lower left leg.
