Knicks 113, Bucks 98: Scenes from the grit and gumption of Derrick Rose

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Photo by Gary Dineen/NBAE via Getty Images Huge comeback. Coming into Friday, the Knicks might have looked at their contest with the Milwaukee Bucks as a measuring stick game. Sure, the Bucks were missing Khris Middleton, but they are the champs.

Game Preview: Knicks at Bucks - 11/05/21

Posting and Toasting (Lee Escobedo) — Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty Images Here’s the Deer. We need to talk. Pull up a chair. This is a sensitive and a touchy subject but it needs to be broached. Ready? Tom Thibodeau has flaws. I know. He’s the best coach we’ve had since his mentor, Jeff Van Gundy. And he has taken us out of the proverbial swamp and back into the playoffs. He has performed many miracles with this...

Posting and Toasting (daniellubofsky) — Photo by Ned Dishman/NBAE via Getty Images Seemingly a big part of the rotation after two games, Obi Toppin’s minutes have inexplicably gone down since then. Obi Toppin opened the 2021-22 season with two impressive performances. The sophomore forward scored 27 points combined over the first two games while shooting over 64 percent from the field. He sprinted out in transition every...

The Knicks’ defensive shortcomings are proving costly

Posting and Toasting (daniellubofsky) — Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images Stretches of poor defensive effort have recently sunk the Knicks into holes they haven’t been able to get out of The Knicks hung their hat on defense last season—as most Tom Thibodeau-led teams do.

Raptors 113, Knicks 104: “Halloween hangover”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images Stand clear of the closing win streak My DVR stopped working in the second quarter last night. It’s been 16 hours since and it still won’t kick in. No matter what I try, it won’t run beyond Immanuel Quickley hitting the side of the backboard bricking a corner 3 attempt. I try to live my life with the belief that the universe unfolds as it must. Maybe...

Raptors 113, Knicks 104: Scenes from the Knicks not taking a shorthanded opponent seriously

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images Again! The New York Knicks have a lot of talent, but so far this season, they have also shown a disturbing tendency to play down to their competition. The Toronto Raptors were missing leading scorer Scottie Barnes, but they’re a smart, disciplined squad with more than enough talent to take down New York. The Knicks went up 15 in the second quarter, and...

RJ Barrett is here when the Knicks need him

Posting and Toasting (daniellubofsky) — Photo by Ned Dishman/NBAE via Getty Images RJ Barrett’s immense talent can produce incredible things when called upon It was a strange game for the Knicks taking on the Pelicans down in New Orleans.

Knicks 123, Pelicans 117: Scenes from the game RJ Barrett refused to lose

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Photo by Ned Dishman/NBAE via Getty Images Wow, RJ. Saturday’s contest with the New Orleans Pelicans had all the markings of a trap game. The Pelicans are bad, and they were missing Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. The Knicks were at the end of a short road trip, meaning they were perhaps looking forward to the flight home. And most importantly, the Magic loss showed this team...

The Pels are 1-5 and playing the second game of a back-to-back. They lost the first to the Kings, 113-109. This should be a straightforward victory for New York. But the NBA is an unpredictable place, and teams that expect...
