Hawks 102, Knicks 98 (OT): “Is this what hell is like?”

Posting and Toasting (Bryan Renzi) — Good news! If you’re reading this recap, you probably didn’t watch this game, hence missing out on harrowing torture. In answer to P&Ter Norman Hathaway’s question in the title - no, this was not hell for those of us who enjoy watching countless slow-mo replays of fouls of all stripes. I mean, it really is cool when you think about it, how many different types of fouls you can commit in an...

Hawks 102, Knicks 98 (OT): Scenes from an an ugly game even by Knicks-Hawks standards

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Melo got ejected, Rose missed everything late, and this game sucked. Wednesday’s overtime loss in Atlanta was already ugly long before Carmelo Anthony earned an ejection for hitting Thabo Sefolosha in the face late in the second quarter. The Knicks did a good job of rallying in his absence, building the lead up to 8 in the third, but these are still the Knicks...they can’t stand success. The...

Carmelo Anthony ejected from Wednesday’s game for hitting Thabo Sefolosha in the face

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Aw, crap. Carmelo Anthony was ejected from Wednesday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks after hitting Thabo Sefolosha in the face. The play happened late in the second quarter. The play was originally a double-technical but got upgraded upon further review. Crap. Melo swung his arm into Thabo Sefolosha's face and got ejected for it: https://t.co/sI2bjQ0M6d pic.twitter.com/t3b8iACJf6 — SB...

Manhattan is the chic new living space for your New York Knicks

Posting and Toasting (chiniqua) — More Knicks than ever actually live in Manhattan One of the oddities of the New York Knickerbockers is that although they play at the World’s Most Famous Arena, they practice up the Saw Mill in Tarrytown. New York City is the playground of the rich and famous, but most rich and famous players have lived in Westchester. That seems to be changing, in a trend started by good old Amar’e...

Knicks practice notes: Courtney Lee sat out with a sore wrist, expected to play Wednesday

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — He sat out Tuesday’s practice, but might play Wednesday. Courtney Lee has been on the minds of many folks surrounding the organization recently, what with head coach Jeff Hornacek asking him to shoot more and all. But how the hell is Lee supposed to shoot more with an injured wrist? The Knicks say Courtney Lee (right wrist) didn't practice today. We'll find out more about his status for...

Jeff Hornacek wants Courtney Lee to take more contested shots

Posting and Toasting (Kristian Winfield) — Lee: “That’s very new. It’s only a selective few guys in this league that the coach is telling you to shoot contested shots.” Reporters heaped question after question onto Carmelo Anthony following the Knicks’ 119-114 Christmas day loss to the Boston Celtics, but nestled away beneath a herd of journalists and cameramen, an already dressed Courtney Lee waited patiently for those who wanted to...

Celtics 119, Knicks 114: ‘When did Marcus Smart turn into Ray Allen?’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The Celtics are jerks. If anybody understands the horrible drudgery of watching bad defense, it’s Knicks fans. This franchise hasn’t been consistently competent on that end since the Clinton administration. Bad defense is what...we...do. Yet somehow Sunday’s loss seemed to feature some particularly egregious D. Maybe it’s the fact that we fans had hoped to kick off the Christmas Day slate...

Celtics 119, Knicks 114: The Grinch stole Christmas, Kristaps stole it back, and Melo gave it away again

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Bah, Humbug! The New York Knicks ruined Christmas yet again, falling victim to the army of green trolls who live under live under Santa’s workshop and steal children’s toys while the elves are sleeping by the score of 119-114. The game was tight until the second quarter, when the Celtics caught fire from behind the three-point arc. (They were left wide open by Knicks defenders, but that’s...

Celtics coach Brad Stevens discusses the changes he has seen in the Knicks under Jeff Hornacek

Posting and Toasting (Kristian Winfield) — Stevens has played the Knicks 13 times in his three-year head coaching career. That kind of qualifies him as an expert. As odd as it sounds, Brad Stevens is somewhat of a Knicks expert. Stevens took over as head coach of the Boston Celtics in 2013 and has played against the Knicks — their divisional rival — four times every season. From the outside looking in, he has seen the ups and down...

This Week in Knicks Social Media: Live life, live!

Posting and Toasting (chiniqua) — In which the Knicks remember Craig Sager and mess with each other Happy holidays! It’s Christmas Eve and it’s sleeting out and things are kind of hectic, but take a minute, pull up a chair, have a hot drink - we have a few important items of business to take care of. First, earlier this week the entire basketball world paused when news came out that the great Craig Sager had died of...

Jeff Hornacek’s offense has created a twist on the traditional Carmelo Anthony isolation play

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — Melo is good; Melo in an actual offensive scheme is better. Iso-Melo is an unfairly vilified offensive playcall. It really shouldn't be — Carmelo Anthony is an extremely good isolation scorer, and if you have an extremely good isolation scorer, you should get him an abundance of isolation possessions. But sometimes, Melo takes a long time to read his defender (and the defense) during his...

Kristaps Porzingis’s relatives dropped the hottest a cappella song in the history of Latvian awards shows

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Kristaps Porzingis won Latvia’s Athlete of the Year award for 2016 because no shit. And since Latvia is superior to America in every possible way, it stood to reason that his acceptance speech would put the ESPY’s, Oscars and Nobel Prize ceremonies to shame. But Kristaps doesn’t even need to be in the building to make a memorable evening. Any member of the Porzingis family is capable of...

Chasson Randle on Knicks call-up: ‘I can’t really think about what they’re thinking about’

Posting and Toasting (Kristian Winfield) — Randle has scored 113 points in Westchester’s last four games but says he keeps NBA call-ups off his mind. The Knicks have a full 15-man roster and can’t add another player. But head coach Jeff Hornacek said he’s “always keeping an eye on those guys” on the Westchester Knicks roster—specifically Chasson Randle, whose orbital fracture eliminated him from New York’s third point guard race in...
