Kristaps Porzingis’ decline gets more troubling with each game

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS – As the profile of rookie center Willy Hernangomez rises, his best friend on the team, Kristaps Porzingis, is mired in a curious rut — and it’s not just due to his Achilles tendon injury. Entering December, the 7-foot-3 second-year phenom seemed to have a legitimate shot at making the All-Star Game as a reserve. Now...

Carmelo and Knicks flip script after flirting with familiar choke

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — Who says Carmelo Anthony can’t hit the big shot or the Knicks can’t eke out a close game? Two days after his potential game-winning 3-pointer went in and out against Phoenix, Anthony sank a giant left-baseline jumper with 23 seconds left over Jeff Teague, breaking a tie and sending the Knicks to a...

Even Joakim Noah knew this was the worst free throw ever

NY Post (Fox Sports) — The Knicks are struggling mightily, and Joakim Noah didn’t make it any better Monday night. Losers of seven of their past 10 games, several of which ended in dramatic, devastating fashion, the Knicks could certainly use a strong performance from their flashy offseason signing.

How Carmelo Anthony is dealing with All-Star reality

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS – Big Easy or bust? Not for Carmelo Anthony. Anthony has contemplated the possibility head coaches could deny him a berth on the Eastern Conference All-Star team as a reserve at forward.

Knicks must fix this gaping hole in their defense – and fast

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Better late than never? Not in this case. The Knicks lately have shown an irritating habit of locking down defensively in the fourth quarter. Making this practice so annoying is that for large parts of the game leading up to their attempted defense, they look like a team that couldn’t guard a locked door with...

Derrick Rose is about to blow — which won’t help him get calls

NY Post (George Willis) — At some point you expect Derrick Rose to erupt and say, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” That was the line from Peter Finch’s character in the movie “Network,” but it was also the look on Rose’s face following the Knicks’ 107-105 loss to the Suns on Saturday...

Why Porzingis-Chandler confrontation is a good sign for Knicks

NY Post (George Willis) — With 2:18 left in the game Saturday night at the Garden, Kristaps Porzingis was walking toward the Knicks’ bench during a timeout when he was bumped by Tyson Chandler. It seemed innocent, but Porzingis took offense to the nudge, stopping to glare and go chest-to-chest with Chandler before players and officials stepped between them. It...

A dejected Carmelo: ‘I was just thinking the ball was in’

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — There Carmelo Anthony sat, slumped on the scorer’s table, dejected and dazed in disbelief. Coach Jeff Hornacek threw an arm around Anthony’s shoulder. A few fans also showed the star forward support by patting his back. The potential game-winning 3-pointer already was being replayed in Anthony’s head. Already, he was wondering how the ball that...

Derrick Rose takes passive-aggressive approach to no-calls

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — It wasn’t what Derrick Rose said. It was more what he didn’t say about his drive to the basket. With 28.5 seconds left, Rose drove after Devin Booker put the Suns up two points with a huge 3-pointer. Rose appeared to draw contact, but there was no call. “I am going to let you all...

Knicks’ same old story: A painful Carmelo Anthony miss at buzzer

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek was asked about the season so far. “Well, it’s been an interesting year I’d say,” Hornacek said. “Ladies and gentlemen, the nominees for Understatement of the Year are…” Hornacek gave a quick refresher course in just some of what has transpired since he assumed the position as the head of the...

‘The next Marc Gasol’ is becoming a Knicks steal

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Knicks rookie Willy Hernangomez, the 22-year-old, 6-foot-11 bundle of potential, has heard the comparison before — many times before, in fact. But it still gets him excited and makes him proud when he is linked to one of his idols, Marc Gasol, the Grizzlies’ two-time All-Star and former Defensive Player of the Year. “When I...

Carmelo puts pressure on Phil Jackson: I may leave if you ask

NY Post (Mark W. Sanchez) — Phil Jackson asked Carmelo Anthony if he wanted to remain a Knick. Now Anthony is publicly putting the onus right back on Jackson.
