Knicks just watched their worst fear get exposed

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Entering this season, the fear for the Knicks was their point-guard play. The fear was realized on Christmas. Starting point guard Jarrett Jack went scoreless, going 0-for-5, and committed an ill-advised flagrant foul on Joel Embiid in the third quarter with the score tied at 52. Rookie Frank Ntilikina looked lost on defense for one...

Knicks fans now have a new enemy

NY Post (George Willis) — Joel Embiid said his family wasn’t around for Christmas. So maybe that’s why he decided to play Grinch and steal the Knicks holiday spirit. This was supposed to be a nationally televised celebration of all the progress the Knicks have made this season, especially at the Garden, where they have been rather dominant — at...

Porzingis tries to find the bright side of all these bricks

NY Post (George Willis) — It was another subpar shooting performance for Kristaps Porzingis, who wasn’t as big of a factor as he needed to be in the Knicks’ 105-98 loss to the Sixers on Christmas Day at the Garden. Porzingis was 6-of-19 from the field and was just 9-of-14 from the free-throw line to finish with 22 points. In...

Enes Kanter doesn’t care how monstrous a game he played

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks starting center Enes Kanter got a slew of Christmas texts congratulating him for his 30-20 game. But Kanter has his 20/20 vision trained on the big picture and he will not return many of those good-natured messages because the Knicks suffered a damaging 105-98 defeat to the Sixers in Monday’s Garden holiday matinee. Kanter...

The other unicorn steals Christmas as Knicks get outgunned

NY Post (Marc Berman) — This was hardly the Merry Kristaps the Knicks imagined. Knicks center Enes Kanter was sensational with a 31-point, 22-rebound explosion, but Kristaps Porzingis didn’t have one of his monster games as the 76ers’ Joel Embiid and his flock of hot-shooting guards survived in a 105-98 Christmas upset in the nationally televised Garden matinee. Porzingis racked...

How Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid can ruin Knicks’ holiday

NY Post (Alex Squadron) — Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid have played just 86 combined games, but the Knicks have seen enough of the young 76ers duo to know Monday’s matchup won’t be easy. On Christmas Day, the Knicks host Philadelphia at the Garden, with tip-off set for noon. Signs may point to this being a joyous holiday for the...

The Knicks’ Process wasn’t supposed to be here yet

NY Post (Alex Squadron) — With the Knicks set to host the 76ers on Christmas Day, it is worth remembering: The Process isn’t happening only in Philadelphia. After shipping Carmelo Anthony to the Thunder in September, the Knicks committed to their own version of “Trust The Process” — building around a fledgling core and a blossoming superstar in Kristaps Porzingis....

Why this can be a throwback Christmas for Knicks fans

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Look, it’s probably unfair to Christmas to point out that the Knicks have been brutal for a while whenever they’ve been scheduled to play on Dec. 25. They’ve lost, a lot, for a lot of years, so the record probably isn’t all that hot on Presidents Day, either, or Valentine’s Day. Still, the record is...

Real reason behind Knicks’ odd schedule (sorry, Stan Van Gundy)

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It’s the Grammys, stupid. According to industry sources, the major factor in the Knicks’ home-heavy early schedule is a combination of the Garden hosting the Grammys in January and the Big Ten tournament for the first time ever in early March. On Friday, Pistons president and coach Stan Van Gundy floated a conspiracy theory the...

Tim Hardaway’s dad sounds off on all those who doubted his son

NY Post (Marc Berman) — His father sees Tim Hardaway Jr. as a future All-Star. As such, Tim Hardaway Sr., the former Heat All-Star point guard and now a Pistons assistant, said he was “upset” at the vicious reaction last July after the Knicks inked his son to a four-year, $71 million deal. While Hardaway Jr. is rehabbing from a...

Knicks welcome future East beast for Christmas showcase

NY Post (Marc Berman) — To further Stan Van Gundy’s wild conspiracy theory that the NBA gave the Knicks a break with their early-season schedule, perhaps commissioner Adam Silver wanted to ensure a Merry Kristaps. If Van Gundy is right, the NBA schedulemakers did a fine job in keeping Jeff Hornacek’s young club afloat by Christmas Day. The five-game nationally...

Kristaps Porzingis gets his mojo back

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DETROIT — After scoring 28 points more than he did a night earlier, Kristaps Porzingis said he knows he’s on the right track. Bouncing back from a his NBA-worst 0-for-11, one-point outing in which he got benched for Michael Beasley in a win over the Celtics on Thursday, Porzingis racked up 19 of his 29...

Knicks’ road woes reach new low in brutal late loss to Pistons

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DETROIT — Kristaps Porzingis made buckets this time — aplenty. But it wasn’t enough because the Knicks always find ways to lose away from the Garden. Friday night, they blew a four-point lead in the final 1:14 to ruin Porzingis’ bounce-back 29-point night and lose 104-101 to the Pistons at Little Caesars Arena. Before the...

Stan Van Gundy: NBA gave Knicks break with early schedule

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DETROIT — Pistons outspoken coach/president Stan Van Gundy needled the NBA for presenting the Knicks a home-dominant schedule to start the season, hinting it was not coincidental. Van Gundy, who grew up in upstate Brockport, has made prior comments that the NBA seems to want to have marquee franchises like the Knicks and Lakers fare...

Details of Phil Jackson-Steve Mills’ dysfunction spilling out

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Phil Jackson never had full support from his general manager Steve Mills — one factor in his Knicks demise — according to one of Jackson’s longtime biographers/confidants. Jackson is back in Montana after a long trip to Europe and recently spoke this week with Roland Lazenby, who authored the Jackson biography “Mindgames’’ and most recently...
