Porzingis can’t keep Knicks from blowing big lead in MSG opener

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks likely will find a lot of ways to lose this season. In their home opener, they decided to tease the sellout Garden crowd by taking a 21-point lead late in the second quarter and dominating the half before blowing all of it. In their first home opener without Carmelo Anthony since 2010, the...

Why the Knicks remain excited about Frank Ntilikina’s progress

NY Post (cmasisak) — While Knicks fans are frustrated with rookie Frank Ntilikina’s fragility, Jeff Hornacek continues to see good signs well beyond the spate of injuries. After a rough, scoreless, seven-minute NBA debut Thursday in Oklahoma City, Ntilikina’s status for the home opener Saturday vs. Detroit was in doubt because of a sprained ankle suffered at practice Friday....

Knicks’ logjam at center is already a subplot to watch

NY Post (Alex Squadron) — After Willy Hernangomez made the All-Rookie first team last year, there were high expectations for the Knicks big man entering this season. But in a crowded frontcourt, the 23-year-old still is competing to see the floor at all.

Carmelo: No reason for Knicks fans to boo me at MSG

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OKLAHOMA CITY – Carmelo Anthony said the “chapter is closed’’ on his Knicks’ stint with Thursday’s 105-84 victory. However, there may be one more page – Dec. 16 when Anthony and the Thunder visit the Garden for the first time since the trade.

Frank Ntilikina is Knicks’ only hope at point guard

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OKLAHOMA CITY – The Knicks point-guard dilemma looked as bad as advertised in the season opener, a 105-84 loss to the Thunder and Carmelo Anthony. Neither Ramon Sessions, Ron Baker nor French rookie Frank Ntilikina could do a thing. In Ntilikina’s case, it was understandable. After missing summer league, Ntilikina missed the final four preseason games...

A glimpse at what the Porzingis era will look like for Knicks

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — OKLAHOMA CITY — At the ripe old grizzled age of 22, Kristaps Porzingis already has played — endured? — two Knicks seasons in New York. He became many things to Knicks fans because of his 7-foot-3 length, perimeter shooting skills and explosiveness at the rim. The Future. The Hope. The Cornerstone. But no matter what...

‘No more Knicks talk’: Carmelo gets closure with emphatic ‘W’

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — OKLAHOMA CITY — Less than one game-time minute had passed and Carmelo Anthony accepted a Russell Westbrook pass on the right side and launched an open 3-pointer.

One Knicks building block didn’t play much in opener

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OKLAHOMA CITY — Center Willy Hernangomez, the young building block who was a first-team All-Rookie selection, found himself out of the rotation in the season opener Thursday versus the Thunder. As expected Enes Kanter started and Kyle O’Quinn got 22 minutes as the backup. With 3:46 left, Hernangomez was put in during garbage time of...

Knicks no match for Carmelo, Thunder in opening-night dud

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OKLAHOMA CITY — Kristaps Porzingis bested Carmelo Anthony, but that was the only thing that went right for the Knicks. Anthony didn’t have a very good performance in the first game of his new life, but he had a very good cast, led by Russell Westbrook’s triple-double (21 points, 16 assists, 10 rebounds). Porzingis outplayed...

MSG would do better without Rangers, Knicks: investor

NY Post (Carleton English) — The Knicks and Rangers aren’t the only franchises at Madison Square Garden not playing up to their potential, one Wall Street investor said Thursday. The Garden itself is underperforming — and James Dolan should take decisive action to bring full value to shareholders, according to Samantha Greenberg of the Margate Capital hedge fund. Greenberg, speaking...

Kristaps Porzingis has three lofty goals for this season

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OKLAHOMA CITY — Kristaps Porzingis has lofty individual goals that go beyond making his first All-Star Game — which he made known over the summer. In an interview with the Players Tribune, Porzingis listed two other honors in his sights — one likely unreachable considering his defensive rebounding numbers. “As far as individual goals …...
