Washington Wizards 110 – New York Knicks 113 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — “What can change the nature of a game?” Some of you might have recognized the origin of the broad strokes of this question. You know I’m a gamer, and in 1999 (already 20 years ago! Damn I feel really old) a revolutionary RPG came out for PC thanks to Interplay, trying to exploit the success of Baldur’s Gate in 1998. The name of the game was Planescape: Torment, and...

New York Knicks 96 – Houston Rockets 120 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — I won’t toy around even a tiny bit: this game was pure ass. The final score doesn’t even begin to tell how mismatched were the two teams, with the worldbeating Rockets straight up abusing the Knicks from the start, and without needing too much from the reigning MVP to complete that feat (because let’s face it, in 2019 a 26 point game from Harden – on 21 shots! –...

New York Knicks 100 – Orlando Magic 114 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — This early April games are seldom relevant, even during non-tanking seasons. There are only a handful of games bearing any sort of importance, what with most of the seeding and qualfication threshold being already handed out. Well, this wasn’t one of them. Orlando needs every win it can get to sneak into the playoffs (the Magic began the night being 9th, down 0.5 games from the 8th spot...

Chicago Bulls 105 – New York Knicks 113 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — Well, well, well. Did anyone ever doubt we would end up winning this one? I mean, did you see beforehand the Bulls’ starting lineup? Three undrafted guys. A late first round-pick on his third team. A good center with a journeyman resume. If there ever was a blatant tank job, it was this one. Not that I blame them: it’s the right thing to do, just like it was the right thing to do...

They’re Still Doing These Things?: Knicks vs. Heat

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — You just know that they’re going to actually win this game just to spite me.

Toronto Raptors 117 – New York Knicks 92 – Game Recap

Knicker Blogger (Farfa) — It occurs to me I’ve never exactly told you about my Clark Kent job. I don’t know if there’s such a profession in the USA; but my trade is essentially facility management for condos, accounting for expenses for common areas, negotiating between home owners, and generally acting as the guy you call if you’re an home owner and you’re having some sort of...

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...
