Knicks drop heartbreaker to 76ers in a season full of them

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHILADELPHIA — Another last-possession loss — and the Knicks probably won’t recover from this one. Carmelo Anthony couldn’t win it this time with a last-second jumper. With the Knicks trailing by one, Anthony ended his disjointed night by missing a left-of-the-lane jumper over a 76ers double-team with three seconds left as Philly hung on 105-102...

Knicks tank job is Carmelo Anthony’s nightmare

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHILADELPHIA – Saying he “misses the playoffs a lot,’’ Carmelo Anthony said it’s impossible for a player to embrace the tanking bandwagon across the final 21 games. The Knicks, who play Friday night in Philly, are four games out of the eighth playoff seed in the Eastern Conference, needing to hop over four teams to make...

Breaking down players who could be next Knicks point guard

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — In a perfect world, the Knicks would steam into free agency this summer and land one of the primo point guards at the top of the heap, a Steph Curry, Chris Paul or Kyle Lowry. If you haven’t noticed, neither the world nor the Knicks are perfect. Forget those top-tier talents. “It’s either through the...

Knicks want Derrick Rose to be less predictable and shoot 3s

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PHILADELPHIA – Derrick Rose said it with a straight face. His rarely used 3-point shot will be raring to go soon – in the postseason. Rose, who bedeviled the Magic on Wednesday with his explosions to the rim on his way to an 18-point, seven-rebound, four-assist night, acknowledged the Knicks coaching staff is trying to...

Amar’e Stoudemire slammed as sad homophobic man-child

NY Post (Post Wire Report) — Amar’e Stoudemire has enough to worry about as the co-owner and ostensible star of a team in a second-rate Israeli basketball league. He probably didn’t need to attract the attention of a pair of ex-NBA players who slammed the former Knick’s homophobic views. After Stoudemire told an Israeli website he would “shower across the street”...

This is the player Jeff Hornacek has waited all season for

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO – Lance Thomas has replaced Ron “Burgundy’’ Baker as Jeff Hornacek’s favorite player. With the Knicks defense rising up, Hornacek dished all the credit to Thomas’ return after a month-long absence. Thomas broke the orbital bone in his face in mid-January when he got clocked by the elbow of Raptors center Jonas Valunciunas. Thomas never...

Kristaps Porzingis shines in return as Knicks thump Magic

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO, Fla. — This is the land of fantasy and unicorns, so why not. March is here and the Knicks are trying to make it meaningful. Kristaps Porzingis, the 7-foot-3 Latvian unicorn, made a triumphant and stirring return after missing the last two games with an ankle sprain and Derrick Rose made Tom Thibodeau wish...

How Phil Jackson meddled his way to triangle triumph

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO – Jeff Hornacek acknowledged Knicks president Phil Jackson has influenced him into using more triangle offense – especially to enhance their defensive posture. And Jackson has a supporter in Kristaps Porzingis, who thinks the club should’ve used the triangle a lot more at the beginning of the season instead of Hornacek’s combo attack. “[Phil...

Derrick Rose’s free-agency plan after awkward Knicks tenure

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO – Wednesday was the deadline for Derrick Rose to take the Brandon Jennings path. Rose would need to be waived March 1 to be eligible to be on a playoff roster for another club. Instead he will face Orlando on Wednesday night as the starting point guard and won’t be asking for any buyout....

Willy Hernangomez replaces Porzingis as Knicks’ injury worry

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks figure to welcome Kristaps Porzingis back to active duty Wednesday in Orlando. So naturally they plan to be without center Willy Hernangomez. Apparently there is a ban on too much happy news for the Knicks. While Porzingis practiced Tuesday in Tarrytown after missing two games with a sprained right ankle, Hernangomez sat out...

Larry Brown to Phil Jackson: Quit pulling strings and coach the Knicks

NY Post (BobThompson) — Peering into the Knicks’ power structure, Larry Brown has a message for Phil Jackson: If you want the triangle offense, be the coach. The former Knicks head coach said it’s wrong for Jackson to force his style of play on current coach Jeff Hornacek, as the Knicks place a bigger focus on the system Jackson made famous. Brown,...

The former Knicks forward, who is playing with Israeli basketball club Hapoel Jerusalem, said (joked?)...

Carmelo Anthony is asking for another talk with Phil Jackson

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Carmelo Anthony wants to sit down and chat with Knicks president Phil Jackson later rather than sooner. “I don’t think right now. Right now we’ve got to sit down and kind of finish these games and go back down to the drawing board after this season. But not right now,” Anthony said about hashing out...

Knicks turning rest of season into triangle auditions

NY Post (Jonathan Lehman) — Now that Phil Jackson’s power struggle with Carmelo Anthony has cooled and the trade deadline has passed without converting their pending free-agent point guards into any assets, the Knicks can get back to what’s most important: the triangle offense, and dumping guys who don’t get it. Jeff Hornacek said Tuesday he would use the remaining...
