Where Knicks can start pointing the finger for loss to Nets

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Five takeaways from Friday’s 107-105 heartbreaking loss in Brooklyn that dropped the Knicks’ record at 1-1. 1.

Knox drawing comparisons with emerging Celtics star he’s set to face

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Even before Kevin Knox fell to the Knicks and became the ninth overall pick, his coach at Kentucky, John Calipari, predicted several teams ultimately would regret passing on the youngest player in this year’s NBA draft.

Enes Kanter’s big game hurt by questionable flagrant foul

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Enes Kanter almost always has his way with the Nets’ smaller front line — he’s a menacing bull at Barclays Center. When the Knicks needed three points to tie Friday night, Kanter got them, barreling to the bucket after a pocket pass from Trey Burke off a pick-and-roll with 15.9 seconds left. Kanter scored the...

When the real battle begins for the Knicks and Nets

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks and Nets scrapped in Brooklyn on Friday in the first of four regular-season grudge matches.

Rookie grateful for mentorship of these two former Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach David Fizdale has compared 6-foot-5 rookie guard Allonzo Trier to Clippers reigning Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams.

Speedy youngsters have Knicks leading one ‘non-negotiable’ stat

NY Post (Marc Berman) — “The Fiz Kids” are No. 1 in the NBA in two things. They are the league’s youngest team with an average age of 24.1 and — at least after one game — the fastest. The Knicks may or may not win 30 games, but they are young, athletic and have a head coach in David...

David Fizdale’s lineup twist worked perfectly

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Five takeaways from the Knicks’ season-opening 126-107 victory over the hapless Hawks — a game in which the club led by 28 points early in the third quarter. 1. David Fizdale’s decision to start Frank Ntilikina at the swing position paid off, and the coach didn’t care an iota about Ntilikina’s modest five-point, one-assist, 2-of-7 showing....

It was a mixed bag for the Knicks’ rookies

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — On opening night, the Knicks’ three rookies ran the gamut. There was the good (Allonzo Trier scoring 15 points), the bad (Kevin Knox making just 4-of-16 shots) and the unfortunate (Mitchell Robinson tweaking his ankle in just over a minute of action) in the Knicks’ 126-107 rout of the Hawks at the Garden on Wednesday...

Knicks get a double-double from this Noah

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Noah Vonleh looked at the roster, saw its youth, players with a similar story to his, heard coach David Fizdale’s mandate on the importance of development, and knew the Knicks were the right move.
