Knicks rookie Immanuel Quickley in slump after fast start

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Rookie point guard Immanuel Quickley is facing his first NBA slump with the Knicks. The 25th-overall pick in the 2020 draft out of Kentucky had generated a buzz after a strong preseason, and then by scoring 16 points in 19 minutes in a Jan. 4 win in Atlanta in his first game back from a...

This couldn’t have been worse for the Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — This one felt worse than the others. The Knicks became a losing team again on an all-bad-news Monday night in Charlotte. Their third straight loss featured the Hornets’ Gordon Hayward, whom the Knicks new regime did not want to overpay in November, get payback with a 28-point first half on the way to 34. With...

RJ Barrett’s struggles continue as Knicks lose to Hornets

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The wins have dried up as surely as the shots have stopped falling for the Knicks. Three consecutive misfiring losses have canceled out whatever early buzz was generated by the preceding three-game winning streak. RJ Barrett and the Knicks endured yet another wayward shooting night, while offseason-target Gordon Hayward torched them with 28 of his...

LaMelo Ball on Knicks would’ve been ‘phenomenal’: Jermaine Jackson

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Charlotte rookie point guard LaMelo Ball is looking as electric as Knicks president Leon Rose envisioned. The 6-foot-7 Ball was the No. 1 point guard on the Knicks’ draft board and believed to be No. 1 on their board, period. Ball fell to Michael Jordan’s Hornets at No. 3 and fully announced himself as the...

RJ Barrett may not be able to handle this heavy workload

NY Post (Marc Berman) — RJ Barrett and Julius Randle lead the NBA as a 1-2 punch in one category. It’s not in scoring but minutes per game. RJ Barrett, after playing 44 in the Knicks’ loss to Oklahoma City on Friday, entered Sunday’s 114-89 loss to Denver averaging 38.8 minutes. Randle was close behind at 37.7. Nothing changed against...

At least the Knicks suffered in silence

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — OK. So maybe it isn’t such a terrible idea to keep the Garden empty. Oh, yes, this is the flip side. It’s been easy to get caught up in what the Knicks have done across the first 10 games of this season. Many nights they have been worth the price of admission: hungry, resilient, fun...

Knicks blown out in unnerving performance

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Friday was a letdown against the rebuilding Thunder. Sunday was just an old fashioned beatdown against the title-contending Nuggets. The Knicks’ big start is losing its shine as Tom Thibodeau’s team was battered, 114-89. After winning five of six games, the Knicks have lost two straight to fall back to .500 at 5-5. They’ve scored...

Knicks’ Austin Rivers blames ‘ignorance’ for NBA’s COVID-19 problems

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — The Knicks have made it through nine games this season without COVID-19 throwing a wrench into their plans, but the pandemic is causing problems elsewhere around the league. The Nuggets will arrive at the Garden on Sunday having played their last two games against the 76ers — who played with eight active players Saturday because...

Alarming Knicks setback sets stage for ‘big game’

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — The end of the Knicks’ winning streak Friday night delivered a reminder of what they need to bring on a nightly basis to have a shot, even when their shots are not falling. Now they’ll try to correct in time to get back in the win column Sunday against the Nuggets instead of having one...

Knicks’ Tom Thibodeau thrilled by return of ‘invaluable’ Taj Gibson

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Tom Thibodeau endorsed Taj Gibson’s return to the Knicks, even though their third stint together won’t begin until the 12-year NBA veteran clears COVID-19 protocols, likely in the next several days. The veteran power forward, who was re-signed Thursday after the Knicks had declined his $10 million option in November, also has played for Thibodeau...

Knicks’ night to forget comes with painful question

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Seconds after the final buzzer, the fake noise machine was turned off and the Garden was dead silent — like the Knicks’ offense. It’s not a catastrophe. The Knicks still have five victories after nine games. In 2019-20, the Knicks didn’t notch their fifth win until the season’s 25th game, and only after David Fizdale...

Awful shooting ends Knicks’ win streak in loss to Thunder

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The Knicks didn’t secure their sixth win last season until their 26th game, four contests after head coach David Fizdale had been axed in early December following a 4-18 record. It’s clearly not the time to nitpick, but new coach Tom Thibodeau’s improved team shot just 35.8 percent from the floor and 60 percent from...

Tom Thibodeau shouldn’t get all the credit for Knicks resurgence

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks faced their Western Conference counterparts in the no-name Thunder on Friday at the World’s Most Empty Arena. Each club entered the pandemic season perceived as tanking teams stockpiling draft picks. A funny thing happened on the way to another Knicks lottery trip. Tom Thibodeau’s team is off to the franchise’s best eight-game start...

Mitchell Robinson is the most excited about Taj Gibson’s Knicks return

NY Post (Peter Botte) — Mitchell Robinson found out about the Knicks’ latest roster move Thursday night while perusing social media, and he immediately was excited. The Knicks are happy to have Taj Gibson back in the fold for front-court depth and another veteran presence, but none more than Robinson, who utilized the veteran big man as a mentor on...

Julius Randle’s relentless offseason workouts catalyst for All-Star form

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Julius Randle wanted to get to work. This didn’t surprise Tyler Relph a bit. Relph has helped train Randle for more than a decade, going back to Randle’s days at Prestonwood Christian Academy in Dallas. Even then, at 15 years old, Randle understood the value of sweat equity. But this was something else. This was...
