‘I don’t eat bad’: Dennis Smith Jr. denies food fight with Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LOS ANGELES — New Knicks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. doesn’t want the perception he’s a junk-food maven.

Allonzo Trier busts through rookie wall he insists he didn’t hit

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Rookie walls are like unicorns to Allonzo Trier.

In his past six games, the 23-year-old Trier has...

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Every so often, we need to re-establish the parameters of what’s allowable and what’s not, what’s acceptable and what’s not, what’s excusable and what’s not, what’s permissible and what’s not.

‘We don’t play to lose’: Knicks not focusing on lottery odds
