Jeff Hornacek breaks Knicks silence and wants to coach again

Kristaps Porzingis trade left Kevin Knox with mentorship void

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Kristaps Porzingis blockbuster wasn’t cheered by all, especially not by rookie Kevin Knox. It was a double whammy for Knox. The Knicks lottery pick saw a bright future with Porzingis as a forward tandem. And in the short term, Knox lost his top mentor, veteran Courtney Lee, who had taken the 19-year-old under his...

Porzingis’ depreciating value left Dallas deal as Knicks’ top option

NY Post (Marc Berman) — You can knock the 10-45 Knicks on a lot of stuff as they tied the longest losing streak in franchise history Saturday at 16 with a 104-99 Garden loss to Kawhi Leonard’s Raptors. But don’t knock them on their uncanny ability to pack the Garden, nor their due diligence regarding Kristaps Porzingis’ trade value. Knicks...

Knicks tie franchise-worst skid with 16th consecutive loss

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — The misery was forgotten. The duty of playing out the 82-game string was replaced with the excitement of actual play. A franchise focused on the offseason was trading blows with a team built to win an NBA title. The Garden was rocking. And a win didn’t feel like blasphemy. Of course, the Knicks wouldn’t come...

Smith Jr.’s brilliance can’t keep Knicks from 15th straight loss

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DETROIT — Knicks coach David Fizdale didn’t wear a tie as his tank machine rolled into Motor City on Friday.

Celtics clinging to Kyrie Irving ‘marriage’ proposal

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Danny Ainge compared the Kyrie Irving situation to an “engagement,” and nothing has changed in his eyes.
