Message received: Frank Ntilikina ready to re-enter Knicks lineup

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Three-game message sent. Knicks coach David Fizdale gave all indications Frank Ntilikina is no longer French toast. After benching him for three straight games, including letting him sit during Thursday’s nationally televised 128-100 loss in Boston, it looks as if the 2017 lottery pick will be back in the mix when the Knicks host a...

Ex-Knicks exec calls ‘bulls–t’ on Mario Hezonja starting mystery

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Mario Hezonja’s starting small forward stretch, which has reached nine games, has been what you’d least expect — all defense, no offense. “Super Mario can pass, defend, rebound, too,’’ Hezonzja cracked. “Super Mario’s not just, ‘Hey, damn he scored, he’s so good,’ or, ‘Oh he didn’t score, he’s so bad.’” It’s been a slight mystery...

NY Post (Marc Berman) — BOSTON – The Celtics are starting to get it together and also have good memories.

Big question for sports bettors heading into Thursday night’s battle between Boston and the New York Knicks (TNT, 8:05 p.m.).

Why the Knicks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. is downplaying All-Star talk

NY Post (Marc Berman) — While coach David Fizdale talks often about Tim Hardaway Jr. playing at an All-Star level, the Knicks shooting guard doesn’t believe he’s worthy of such an honor — at least not yet. Not until he gets the 8-17 Knicks winning again. “Growing up and watching games since my dad was playing, as far as I...

Noah speaks out: ‘It was a rough couple years in New York’

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Feb. 3 Garden rematch between the Knicks and Memphis is no longer about David Fizdale versus Marc Gasol. It’s been replaced by Fizdale versus Joakim Noah.

The 2 teams chasing Damyean Dotson, who’s making Knicks decision harder

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It is an almost incredible turn of events that the best Knicks prospect out of the 2017 draft has become second-round swingman Damyean Dotson — not lottery-pick point guard Frank Ntilikina. In the past three games, Dotson is averaging a team-high 18 points on 67.8 percent shooting — 71.4 percent from 3-point range — and...

One-time draft bust may be playing way into Knicks’ future

NY Post (Marc Berman) — When you watch a John Wall performance, you see all the point-guard possibilities that have been missing in New York for years.

John Wall does in Knicks as furious rally falls short late

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The Knicks couldn’t conjure up another final dose of magic Monday night against the Wizards.
