Knicks’ task: Slow down Harden and Rockets’ 3-point shooting

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Nuggets attempted 41 3-pointers against the Knicks on Monday at the Garden. In Oklahoma City on opening night, the Thunder tried 38. Well, Knicks, you ain’t seen nothing yet: Here come the Rockets. Last season, Houston attempted a senses-numbing average of 40.3 3-pointers a game. In the embryonic stages this season, the Rockets have...

How Kristaps Porzingis grew into the ‘nightmare’ NBA feared

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — All summer, Kristaps Porzingis worked on getting stronger. He lifted weights. Ran. Did boxing. He wanted to evolve into what Pistons coach and executive Stan Van Gundy recently predicted for him. “He’s going to be a nightmare for years to come in this league,” Van Gundy said. So far this season, opponents are losing lots...

Curious benching shows the fine line Jeff Hornacek is walking

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks are a .500 ballclub on a three-game winning streak after a fairly difficult schedule. That’s not the record that will get you a top-3 lottery pick or even a seat at the lottery dais in Manhattan in May. But the new management team of Steve Mills and Scott Perry – as much as...

Knicks are ridiculously strong at this one key position

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks are putting together quite the tag team at center. After starting center Enes Kanter struggled, Kyle O’Quinn came to the rescue Monday night with a monster outing and played the final minutes of crunch time.

Tim Hardaway Jr. doesn’t have to score to be difference maker

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — For three quarters Monday night, Tim Hardaway Jr. was the answer to a simple question: “What makes $71 million and is invisible offensively for the Knicks?” As that question, essentially, was being put to Hardaway, teammate Courtney Lee, standing nearby, interjected. “He made a lot of good plays throughout the game, though,” Lee said. He...

The Kristaps Porzingis MVP talk begins — and it’s not crazy

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — By the end, his constituents were weighing in with voice boxes instead of ballot boxes, casting their votes for a favorite son in whom they have invested so much. As the dying seconds of this 116-110 Knicks victory over the Nuggets bled away, all 19,812 of them began the roar in earnest. M! V! P!...

Jarrett Jack is the common denominator in Knicks wins

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — In the Knicks’ first three games, Jarrett Jack did not play in two and came off the bench for 18 minutes in the third. The Knicks lost all three. In the Knicks’ next three games, Jack started each time at point guard. The Knicks won all three. Discuss. And no, it’s not just coincidence. “I’m...

Rising Kristaps Porzingis guides Knicks to third straight win

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Kristaps Porzingis was spectacular early in a career-best night. Tim Hardaway Jr. erupted late. In between, the Knicks were an epic disaster, blowing all of a 23-point lead in a third-quarter meltdown. It ended well enough with a three-game winning streak intact as the Knicks recovered Monday to post their third straight victory, 116-110, before...

Jeff Hornacek made hard decisions narrowing Knicks rotation

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND – In this season of supposed development, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek has admitted to the tough task of figuring out a rotation with a roster made up of comparable players. Hornacek played 12 guys in the first quarter alone in the season opener against the Thunder. But in the Knicks’ 114-95 win over the...

Porzingis, Hardaway help Knicks stun suddenly mortal Cavaliers

Phil Jackson’s firing made Derrick Rose rethink Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — Derrick Rose couldn’t help but admit his interest level in rejoining the Knicks rose after Phil Jackson got canned. The feeling wasn’t mutual. Entering Sunday’s grudge match against the Knicks, Rose said he had never seen rookie Frank Ntilikina play and still hadn’t heard from the club. After Jackson was let go, Knicks...

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — Knicks president Steve Mills said point guard Frank Ntilikina and Willy Hernangomez are keepers. He also dampened speculation about Jeff Hornacek’s immediate future, saying he’s not being judged by a won-loss record, though the Brooklyn victory was a sign the coach was on the right track. “Jeff, Scott [Perry] and I are in this...

This could be Porzingis’ chance to show how he’s improved

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CLEVELAND — Kristaps Porzingis has never excelled against the Cavaliers. Last season in four losses, Porzingis shot 35 percent and averaged just 11.3 points. If Porzingis continues the trend Sunday at Quicken Loans Arena, the Knicks are in for a long night against LeBron James — no matter what point-guard prince Frank Ntilikina provides. With...

Last season, Travis, a power forward, and Knicks’ French rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina...

But Friday night, in the hours leading up to his birthday, Jack gave birth to a new role and gave new life to the young Knicks season. In one swoop, Jack has gone from waiver-wire candidate when Joakim Noah’s suspension is done to starting point guard. Jack who...
