Knicks 116, Bucks 111: “Not tonight, Giannis, not tonight.”

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Back in the halcyon days of 2016, the Knicks stole a bunch of wins in games I think we’d all accepted as losses. This evening in Milwaukee, they executed that theft later, better, and to (my) greater surprise than ever. Man oh man. To break so grim a losing streak with such a forceful fourth-quarter comeback felt excellent. This game happened in the second and fourth quarters. In the second,...

Knicks 116, Bucks 111: Scenes from HOLY CRAP WHAT A WIN

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — Oh man oh man oh man oh man Hoooo boy, what a fucking win. To be perfectly honest, I wrote this off as a blowout loss late in the second quarter and had been scheming on ways to not write about how much the Knicks sucked again . I’d settled on pretending this was a Bucks site and highlighting all of our lord Giannis Antetokounmpo’s unbelievable plays. AND THEN THE KNICKS WON THE THING. ...

Kristaps Porzingis will return in Milwaukee

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — After 3 games to rest a sore Achilles tendon, Kristaps is back: Hornacek says @kporzee participated in shootaround & should be good to go for tonight. They will consider a minutes restriction. — Jonah Ballow (@jonahballow) January 6, 2017 Porzingis has been pushing to get back on the court since the beginning of the week, which makes me feel heartened both that the Knicks are being...

Bucks 105, Knicks 104: “This hurts.”

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Ohhhh it all hurts. That’s gotta be the first lost for me this season that stabbed me right in my soul and made me feel like I was 14 again. Speaking of 14, the Knicks were up 14 in the fourth quarter. They’d had a close but relatively competent first half, then they’d truly blown it open in the third — Bucks missing, Joakim Noah passing, Mindaugas Kuzminskas exploding off the bench, and...

Knicks Trade Rumors: Someone says New York likes P.J. Tucker

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The trade deadline is just weeks away, you know. Like last year, the Knicks hold a lot of contracts of a lot of different sizes, and they’re not particularly good, so there’s reason to believe they might look to make some trades. Of course, they made no trades in this position last year, so I don’t know why I’m using last year as an example. I wish I had paid for that delete function the...

Magic 115, Knicks 103: 'I think this team tries to outdo itself in defensive incompetence every game'

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — Yo, the Knicks are bad. Well...that was not how you want to start 2017. Remember when the Knicks were the 3rd seed in the East? Yeah, that's gone now, as the defense somehow continues to get worse on a seemingly game to game basis. There's no real way to put this in perspective, or to say it's just growing pains; this team was supposed to have turned a corner, but what we saw tonight was...

Magic 115, Knicks 103: Scenes from the worst game of the year

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — That was the one right there. The Knicks were either gonna jolt themselves awake to start 2017, or they were gonna have a horrendous home performance provide the jolt for them. They chose the latter. One of the worst offenses in the NBA blossomed into Warriors East against New York’s flickering defense: 15-31 from downtown, with 35 assists to 12 turnovers. The Knicks couldn’t even keep their...

Joakim Noah played his best defensive game as a Knick in Atlanta

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — Last Wednesday night, Joakim Noah had his best overall game as a New York Knick. The game as a whole was a mess, but his performance was a clear silver lining — after listening to "worst contract in the NBA" talk for five months (and after watching Jo become a mess on the floor), it feels good to say that he's been rounding into form in the past 5 or so games. While his best offensive game of...

How good was Brandon Jennings in Houston?

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Lost in the mix of James Harden’s monstrous triple-double against the Knicks on Saturday was Brandon Jennings’ sharp game. With a rash of injuries and uninspired play Brandon was pressed into a starting role despite his awful game in New Orleans. Jennings continues to be a bellwether for the team as a whole. When nobody can connect, Jennings will flub breakaway layups and fart wide open...

Rockets 129, Knicks 122: “It was fun while it lasted.”

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Not even mad. Kristaps Porzingis sat, Courtney Lee sat, and Carmelo Anthony sat at halftime. The Rockets hit 21 three-pointers, and James Harden put up one of the greatest stat lines in the history of professional basketball. And the Knicks still made a game of it! They actually held a double-digit lead early on because the westerly Toyota Center winds carried several straight Brandon...

How bad was Brandon Jennings in New Orleans?

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Brandon Jennings had a night to remember that you can drown your sorrows in booze. Thankfully he was in New Orleans, where most tourists assume getting completely hammered at the local roost is par for the course. Jennings hasn’t been the best Knick guard by any stretch of the imagination. He does, however, bring some flair and bravado to a somewhat stoic, mild mannered team. Sometimes it...

Pelicans 104, Knicks 92: ‘I guess the Knicks aren’t a superteam’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The Knicks didn’t defend, pass or hit shots. Like commenter Rice2012, we here at P&T headquarters are starting to doubt the Knicks’ “superteam” status. The defense has been laughable all season, and even the offense has become somewhat overrated — they ranked 16th in O-rating before Friday night’s loss to the Pelicans. During the heady times of a couple of weeks ago, the statheads warned...

Pelicans 104, Knicks 92: Scenes from a big dookie in the Big Easy

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — This team ain’t good at the moment. The New York Knicks, who suck right now, sucked even harder Friday night than they had been sucking recently. They sucked their way into a 104-92 defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Pelicans. It was boring and dumb and also dumb and boring. There were some nice lobs to Kristaps Porzingis early. No worries, @kporzee will take care of it. #NYKvsNOP...

Breaking down the play that cost the Knicks a game-winning shot against the Hawks

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — What happened on that last play? New York had a chance to slip away with an ugly win over Atlanta despite losing Carmelo Anthony to an early ejection last night. The whole game completely stunk and nobody really displayed much verve. Nevertheless, with 15.2 seconds and two timeouts remaining the Knicks set a carousel of screens that got (generously listed at 6’1”) Dennis Schroder switched...
