Immanuel Quickley (ankle sprain) is doubtful for Game 4

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Photo by Eric Espada/Getty Images Crap. The New York Knicks have a rough hill to climb in Game 4. They need to beat a Miami Heat team that has roundly outplayed them in this series. And they will also likely be without their best bench player, as Immanuel Quickley has been declared doubtful for Monday’s game. Immanuel Quickley (sprained left ankle) is doubtful for Game 4 at...

Tom Thibodeau after Game 3 loss: “Offensively, we need energy”

Posting and Toasting (chapulana) — Photo by Eric Espada/Getty Images New York held to 86 points on 91 field-goal attempts through 48 minutes of play. Uh, oh, the ineptitude. Blame that on the hot weather . New York arrived in Miami for Game 3 of their second-round series against the Heat and did a bunch of nothing. So little did the Knicks do that they barely cracked the 85-point barrier, losing their first game...

Immanuel Quickley, Jalen Brunson suffered ankle injuries in Game 4 loss

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Photo by Eric Espada/Getty Images Ankles, again. If there has been one theme for the New York Knicks these past few weeks, it would be “Ankles are annoying.” Even when they were beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round, the Knicks were dealing with ankle injuries (Julius Randle, Josh Hart). Now they’re facing the Heat (and getting their asses handed to them), but the ankle...

Heat 105, Knicks 86: “This is not going well LOL”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Photo by Eric Espada/Getty Images Tame recognizes same and you looking familiar In the first round, the Knicks won a contested Game 1 on the road. The higher seed evened the series with a mostly-must-win Game 2; then the series changed venues, the Knicks mostly dominated the next two games, asserted their superiority and put the Cavaliers to the sword in Game 5 — and if they hadn’t...

Heat 105, Knicks 86: Scenes from a cruddy, muddy matinee.

Posting and Toasting (Russell_Richardson) — Photo by Eric Espada/Getty Images New York goes down 2-1 in the semis. On Saturday, the New York Knicks thoroughly tested the strength of the rims at the Kaseya Center in their 105-86 loss to the Miami Heat . The nets were barely affected. By losing Game Three of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the Knicks are in a 2-1 hole and signs are not encouraging. Until about midday,...

Game 3 Preview: Knicks at Heat- 05/06/23

Posting and Toasting (Lee Escobedo) — Photo by J. Conrad Williams Jr./Newsday RM via Getty Images Big game. Enough is enough. The Knicks have edged on the precipice of their offense clicking for two games. Their three-point shooting and team assist have been worse than the regular season low for any team. Game Three is the game Julius Randle wakes the fuck up and unleashes his full offensive arsenal on the bum-ass ...

News briefs on Mitchell Robinson, Josh Hart, and Giannis?

Posting and Toasting (Kento Kato) — Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Taking a quick break from all of the playoff coverage On Thursday afternoon, the NBA announced that Celtics guard Marcus Smart had won the 2022-23 NBA Hustle Award, making it the third time in five seasons that he has won the award. That may not be of any important to any Knicks fans but they can rejoice a bit knowing that their very own Mitchell...

P&T May mailbag time machine

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Photo by Eric Espada/NBAE via Getty Images How far have we come? From 2021? The last time the New York Knicks made the playoffs was the first time it happened while I was covering them. This made May of 2021 not only unprecedented in how fun it was, but how busy. Writing about the Knicks when the playoffs come around is not all that dissimilar from what I imagine it must be like...

Flowers for RJ Barrett

Posting and Toasting (Russell_Richardson) — Photo by Jess Rapfogel/Getty Images Mea Culpa. Evidently, RJ Barrett’s career postseason production has been more impressive than I realized. Tommy Beer surprised me with this one: Thru is his first 12 career playoff games, RJ Barrett is averaging 17.4 points, 5.8 rebs, 3.3 assists and 1.7 three-pointers. Full list of players to match or exceed those averages in their first...

Josh Hart ahead of Game 3: “When you go on the road, there are less distractions”

Posting and Toasting (chapulana) — Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Getty Images The Knicks got the fifth-best regular-season record playing on the road. The New York Knicks will have to retake home-court advantage from the paws of the Miami Heat through the weekend and next week. Both squads split the first two games, turning their second-round series into a best-of-five war in which both teams have already...

Paging Immanuel Quickley: Where is the Knicks’ dynamic sixth man?

Posting and Toasting (Jwiesel13) — Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Getty Images The third-year guard has been a virtual no-show through the first seven games of the 2023 playoffs One of the luxuries for the New York Knicks this season was their depth. They were a team that could seemingly rotate two different units on the court. New York had ten players that averaged at least 15 minutes per game that were...

Knicks 111, Heat 105: “I might be dead”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Photo by Elsa/Getty Images WHEW! The New York Knicks evened their second-round series 1-1 with a 111-105 comeback over the Miami Heat, a perfectly circuitous win that kept repeating like a wave: the Knicks look good/the Heat storm back/the Knicks look good/the Heat storm back. Before the game, someone might have asked you “Would you sacrifice a day/week/month/year off the end of your...

Josh Hart after beating Miami: “I’m not happy, but we’ll take this win.”

Posting and Toasting (chapulana) — Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Getty Images Quoth Thibs: “We had a number of guys step up to get it done.” The New York Knicks sweated it but earned a hard-fought 111-105 win against the Miami Heat to even their second-round series. Now it’s at least a five-game affair as the teams move on to South Beach. It was a ridiculously close game from tip-off to the final buzzer....

Knicks 111, Heat 105: Scenes from a win is a win

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Photo by Elsa/Getty Images I’ll take it. Was Game 2 a good win for the New York Knicks ? Well, it was certainly better than a loss. The Miami Heat looked to be in trouble when it was announced before the game that their superstar, Jimmy Butler, would sit out with an ankle sprain. But we’ve learned things so far in this series: The regular season is meaningless, and HEAT CULTURE is...

Game 2 Preview: Knicks vs Heat- 05/02/23

Posting and Toasting (Lee Escobedo) — Photo by Secuk Acar/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images This is a must win for the Knicks That was a brutal Game 1 loss. To simplify things, if the Knicks would have hit three to four more threes, this could have gone down to the wire, maybe even in the Knicks' favor. Instead, the Knicks were 7-24 for three, equaling 20.6%. That’s a disgusting stat for a team at home trying to strike...
