Knicks 106, Kings 98: ‘We have evolved into fake blowouts’

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Fake blowouts fake comebacks. New York won for the eighth time in 11 games and eighth out of nine at home, defeating Sacramento 106-98. The Knicks are two games over .500 for the first time since you were a dream and a speck in somebody’s eye. They opened doing that thing where they put the opponent in the penalty three or four minutes into a quarter, and all the Knicks save one were...

Knicks 106, Kings 98: Scenes from the blowout that became a nail-biter

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — A win is a win! The New York Knicks let a 20-point third quarter lead slip away, but they held off the Sacramento Kings to finish off the weekend with a 106-98 win. Exhale. Derrick Rose carried the ‘Bockers early on offense, nabbing buckets in bunches with crafty craftiness such as this: Got ‘em, . #NYKvsSAC #Knicks pic.twitter.com/wJdUFt0XSv — NEW YORK KNICKS (@nyknicks) ...

Kings coach Dave Joerger coached Mindaugas Kuzminskas in 2010 Eurocamp, compared him to Andrei Kirilenko

Posting and Toasting (Kristian Winfield) — Joerger coached ‘Kuz’ in a Eurocamp league nearly a decade ago and said he has Kirilenko-like energy. Mindaugas Kusminskas doesn’t remember every basketball camp he’s participated in on his journey to the NBA. So the Knicks rookie forward drew a blank when asked about a specific camp from six years ago. But Kings coach Dave Joerger vividly remembers coaching Kuzminskas at the 2010 adidas...

Knicks vs. Kings Preview: Can the Knicks slow down Boogie & the Boys?

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — DeMarcus Cousins is good. The Kings? Not so much. The Sacramento Kings might as well call themselves Knicks West. Their organization has been a mess for a long time now, and it doesn't look like this is the year they finally sway assumptions about their general competence. They're just...well...they're a super mediocre team. They're bad on defense (24th in defensive rating, which makes them...

World chess champion Magnus Carlsen and his coach love Mindaugas Kuzminskas, of course

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Game recognize game. I think it is fair to say, without even a hint of hyperbole, that Mindaugas Kuzminskas is the most popular basketball player in the history of the world. Certain the MSG faithful have taken young Cheese under their wing, chanting “KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZ” in unison whenever the Lithuanian string bean launches a shot. It might surprise you, however, to learn just how popular...

Knicks 118, Timberwolves 114: “O’Quinning and Winning!”

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Lee was out, Noah was out, but their replacements helped carry New York to victory. There was much rejoicing in Knicksland when Phil Jackson acquired big man Kyle O’Quinn back in the summer of 2015. Here, we thought, was a young man with the ability to become that which is most rare of MSG commodities: a legit two-way role player. Instead, the bearded lug tantalized fans with his unique...

Knicks 118, Timberwolves 114: Scenes from Kyle O’Quinn’s unexpected masterpiece

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Whaaaaaaaaaaat? Since the dawn of time, Friday Night Knicks has heralded contests of chaos, where up is down, black is white, and Kyle O’Quinn is an All-Star center. Yeah, you heard me right. In a game with Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis, the Knicks’ perpetual whipping boy was the best big on the court, on either team — 20 points and 13 rebounds (7 offensive, many of them at huge...

More highlights and reactions from the epic Kristaps Porzingis - Karl-Anthony Towns duel

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Two great tastes that taste great together! Kristaps Porzingis. Karl-Anthony Towns. KAT. Unicorn. Wednesday night’s clash of the titans more than lived up to the hype. Here’s the video ... you know you want to watch it. Damn that’s hot! Towns won the individual matchup with an absurd 47 points and 18 rebounds, but Kristaps won the game (and also had 29 points, which is pretty damn...

Knicks 106, Timberwolves 104: “lmao we did it”

Posting and Toasting (Bryan Renzi) — Carmelo Anthony bailed out the Knicks with a last-second game-winner in a contest that almost got thrown to the Wolves. Imagine your next holiday office party, and it probably goes something like this game. Even if it starts out well, it gets marred by a bunch of personal fouls, and resignation to a mediocre time for all sets in despite the desperate flailings of some folks who are probably...

Knicks 106, Timberwolves 104: Scenes from a reverse fake comeback

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Usually works a little different. The Knicks had absolutely no solution for Karl-Anthony Towns. So they started shading completely off their guys and sending help almost before Towns even caught the ball. Still that razor-clawed menace lopped off his career high 47 points and snared 18 rebounds. The Timberwolves weren’t really clear on how to stop Kristaps Porzingis on the other end. So they...

Like all the very best presents, it immediately and completely fills an enormous aching hole in your life you didn’t even know you had until there was something to...

Knicks practice notes: Uh-oh, we’re talking about butts again

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The Phil Jackson Era has been mainly about butts. The New York Knicks got right back to work, practicing the day after an underwhelming home loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Nobody took the defeat harder than Kristaps Porzingis, who was thoroughly out-muscled by OKC’s frontcourt. The wounded Unicorn burns for vengeance: “Ugly. You don’t want to be on a film after games like this. You...

Mindaugas Kuzminskas has the NBA’s most badass hobby: Picking wild mushrooms

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Finally, a real hunter-gatherer in the NBA. Perhaps no member of the 2016-17 New York Knicks is more difficult to pin down than Mindaugas Kuzminskas. The 27-year-old rookie forward hasn’t shot the ball well, hitting just 39.2 percent of his field goal attempts and 33.3 percent of his threes. He’s not a particularly adept defender, or rebounder, or passer. Yet he always seems to be in the...

Thunder 112, Knicks 103: 'Keep calm'

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — The Knicks got smacked around by OKC. The Knicks missed another chance to move above .500, falling 112-103 to the Oklahoma City Thunder. This loss was more annoying than your average Knick loss, because the Knicks have inspired hope for the first time in three years, and so the hunger grows. New York looked terrific in the early going, then lost it, and once they lost it, it was gone. There...
