Welcome back: Knicks, Nets need their fans’ return more than ever

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Really, we’ve been waiting for a night like Tuesday night ever since we became a two-basketball-team town again eight years ago.

Good riddance to fan-less Knicks games

NY Post (Marc Berman) — This was the final night of fake noise at the Garden. And this was also the final night of no Garden boos.

Tom Thibodeau already looks vindicated before facing Timberwolves

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau has enjoyed three days to prepare for Sunday’s game against the Timberwolves — and that’s not bad news for Minnesota.
