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...

Kristaps Porzingis had one of his worst games as a pro

NY Post (Alex Squadron) — It was just one of those nights. In his return from a two-game absence, Kristaps Porzingis shot 0-for-11 (0-for-3 from beyond the arc) and registered just one point in 23 minutes of action Thursday in the Knicks’ 102-93 victory over the Celtics. It was the fewest points he had scored in a game since Dec....

Frank Ntilikina contained Kyrie Irving when it mattered most

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina got his first experience facing Kyrie Irving, and it went better than he could have hoped. Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek stuck with Ntilikina in the fourth quarter Thursday night against the Celtics, and the rookie made the West Orange, N.J., great work hard. Ntilikina also hit two giant 3-pointers...

‘Cuts and stuff’ can’t stop Enes Kanter

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Knicks center Enes Kanter had another opponent fall on him, injuring his neck. Plus, Kanter’s lower lip looked like he had gone a couple of rounds with Rocky Balboa. So naturally, he turned in a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds Thursday in the Knicks’ 102-93 victory over the Celtics at the Garden. First,...

Knicks show grit they’ll need to maintain for this tough stretch

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Consider the obstacles for the Knicks. The opponents were the Boston Celtics, owners of the best record in the Eastern Conference. Yes, for one night Thursday the Celtics had a simply awful second unit and played on the second half of a back-to-back. But still, the best record in the East means something. The Knicks’...

Brad Stevens not surprised by the Knicks’ improvement

NY Post (Alex Squadron) — It didn’t exactly begin well for the 2017-18 Knicks. They opened the season 0-3, capped off by an ugly, uninspiring 110-89 blowout loss in Boston. But those days are long gone. After a few tweaks, mainly inserting point guard Jarrett Jack into the starting lineup, the Knicks bounced back, and after getting revenge on the...
