New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

With the Knicks suddenly thin at center, should G-Leaguer Luke Kornet get a shot?

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Let’s get weird. Lost amidst the 40-point swing and general awfulness that was the Knicks ’ Saturday night loss to the Rockets was the fact that the team was a couple of calls away from fouling out both of the centers on their active roster. Kyle O’Quinn and Willy Hernanomez got into foul trouble in the first half, and with Enes Kanter (back), Kristaps Porzingis (back) and Joakim...

Thanksgiving P&T mailsack, pt. 2: The draft, the rotation, and TrumpBallGate

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Back to work, back to mailsack! Part one of this mailbag touched on tanking, Nerlens Noel, and a conundrum of sacks and sack-related paraphernalia. Bienvenue à part deux . Fit vs. flyer: who ya got? TrentTuckerEra writes: “Seems like [2018’s] a big-heavy draft, and most of the mock drafts have us taking the best big available. Is that what we should do if the best available player...

Rockets 117, Knicks 102: Perhaps if we just play every game at home...

Posting and Toasting (New York Basketball Observer) — Whats that? You’re not allowed to do that? I don’t like people playing with my emotions. I was ready to watch the Knicks test themselves against a great Western Conference team. Fresh off a bad loss to a crummy Hawks team the day before, I figured the Knicks would get a loss, but this new, prideful Knicks squad might play angry and at least compete. I decided, with the help of an Ian...

Rockets 117, Knicks 102: Scenes from a wacky game with a predictable outcome

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Houston won, as they always do. The New York Knicks , without the aid of Kristaps Porzingis (back problems) and Enes Kanter (also back problems), led the Houston Rockets by a lot of points in the beginning of the game (25-5 in the first quarter) then got their asses handed to them in the middle of the (80-40), then lost, 117-102. We knew heading into the game that they were going to...

Hawks 116, Knicks 104: ‘Enes is our cornerstone, I guess’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — What a crappy game. I am pissed, y’all. This humble blogger had to leave his parents’ house earlier than originally planned and drive three hours from Pennsylvania to Virginia so he could watch the Knicks take on the Atlanta Hawks and write about the experience. Fine. Whatever. Just go out there and beat one of the worst teams in the league, Knicks, and you’ll make the sacrifice worth...

Hawks 116, Knicks 104: Scenes from the Knicks retroactively ruining Thanksgiving

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Psshaw. The New York Knicks screwed the pooch Friday night against the 3-15 Atlanta Hawks , wasting a first-quarter offensive explosion, blowing a 17-point lead and sputtering to a 116-104 defeat. The Knicks are a very different team on the road, boys and girls. Kristaps Porzingis looked like the Unicorn of old throughout much of the game, which should have been enough against this...

Pre-Game Reconnaissance: Knicks at Hawks—11/24/17

Posting and Toasting (Harrison Rahajason) — Prepare yourself for Knicks-Hawks! Sorry, I've been away! But I am back with a preview! The Knicks have been doing so well lately—to the point where we expect the Knicks to win games? That felt so weird to write, but I can certainly get used to it. Tonight, the Knicks will be in Atlanta to play the first game of a back-to-back. I felt confident the Knicks would beat Toronto on Wednesday,...

Following a nice Thanksgiving nap, here are some thoughts on the 2017-18 Knicks

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Much to be thankful for. I just woke up from a long post-Thanksgiving nap, which means the time has come once again to take stock of what we have to be thankful for. And unlike most years, that list can—nay, should—include the New York Knicks basketball club. Our beloved ‘Bockers, who usually provide us with far more grief than glory. But these lads of the 2017-18 vintage are not half bad....

Knicks 108, Raptors 100: Let’s just recap that historic third quarter

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — 41-10. Yes, so that really happened. We’ve seen some shockingly impressive basketball stuff from the 2017-18 New York Knicks , but nothing quite like what they pulled off Wednesday night at the Garden against the Toronto Raptors . After watching 6 quarters of basketball between these squads—four last Friday, the first two tonight—I was convinced that this was simply not a good matchup. The...

Knicks 108, Raptors 100: Scenes from a happy Timsgiving

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — NO CANADIAN CAN STOP TIM HARDAWAY! 41-10. Forty-one to ten. That was the score of the third quarter in Friday’s clash between the Knicks and Toronto Raptors . Before 41-10 the Raptors hit New York where it hurts—where it usually hurts the Knicks—beyond the three-point line, hitting 10 triples in the first half en route to an 11-point lead. After 41-10 the Raptors damn near stole this game...

For a while, Jonestown was doing OK, too. SamNY writes: “At what point in the season will the Knicks come to their senses about dropping out of the playoff hunt, flip the vets, and play the kids?” Impossible to say.

Knicks 107, Clippers 85: 'Yeah, that was nice'

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Victory at home. Monday night’s visit from the Los Angeles Clippers presented the New York Knicks with a tricky little number: a home game, coming off a loss, against a team who’s beaten them 10 times in a row and was desperate to stop an eight-game losing streak. The Knicks’ 107-85 victory was like the reunion episode of a TV series—heartwarming cameo after heartwarming cameo. The teams...

Knicks 107, Clippers 85: Scenes from some feel-good home-cookin’

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Heroes abound! Friday in Toronto, the Knicks played their worst game of the young season. Tonight they bounced back with an across-the-board success, crushing the Los Angeles Clippers 107-85. Both teams got off to hot starts. Fun with fractions: the Knicks went the first quarter of the first quarter without missing a shot, and the Clippers spent the first third of the first quarter perfect...
