New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

Final Score: Mavericks 109, Knicks 102 (OT)

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Man, whatever. I had fun. This was just like the last game. The shorthanded Knicks hung with a much better team but fell short, and I feel pretty okay afterward. Jose Calderon got to cooking soup early on, Pablo Prigioni took the torch (of soup) in the second half, and the Knicks managed to keep pace with the Mavericks . Then, when the game appeared done, Calderon snatched the soup...

What are the fantasy implications of the Knicks' crappy defense?

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Knicks opponents score points. Points are useful in fantasy. The New York Knicks will travel to Dallas to take on the Mavericks on Wednesday evening -- or, in other words, the NBA's 27th-ranked defense will play the league's No. 1 offense. Yay! There is, however, a chance to make a little bit of money from this mismatch, compliments of  SB Nation's Wednesday night FanDuel tournament. Which...

Carmelo Anthony could mess the rest of the road trip and beyond

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Journalist Marc Berman reports Carmelo Anthony's back  is really bothering him . Unless something changes, it seems Melo will miss the rest of the road trip. Somehow, the Knicks still list him as "doubtful," which is silly. Tonight, Melo will spend the night watching Knicks-Mavericks from his hotel room in Dallas. There's no reason to push the guy, even with the team struggling. Amar'e...

On Tyson Chandler and letting go

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — Tyson Chandler gave quotes to both ESPN Dallas and Grantland in advance of tonight's game against the Knicks. Ask any of my close friends to talk about something that I can't seem to let go of, and they'll all tell the same story. When I was a sophomore in college, I went on my first real date. I had dated girls in high school, but this felt different. I had asked to take her out, dressed up...

The Thanasis Report: Another six blocks for Antetokounmpo in Westchester win

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Get your Greek freak on. Good evening, fellow Knicks fans! We may be a mere 24 hours removed from the indignity of watching former New York prospect and Greek national Kostas Papanikolaou humble the Knicks while playing for Houston, but Tuesday evening we were treated to the heroic exploits of a man so Greek, he makes Papanikolaou look like John Smith from Des Moines, Iowa. That's right --...

The W-Knicks are on MSG tonight!

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — See, I said it in a tweet yesterday: The W-Knicks game is on MSG tomorrow night at 7. — Posting and Toasting (@ptknicksblog) November 24, 2014 That means it must be true. But yeah, for real: MSG Network will telecast the Westchester Knicks home game against the Los Angeles D-Fenders, the official NBA Development League affiliate of the Los Angeles Lakers, on Tuesday, November 25...

Carmelo Anthony's back hurts

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Carmelo Anthony left Monday's game in Houston with what the Knicks called "back spasms" and did not return in the second half. I was hoping we'd get an update today -- and we may yet -- on Melo's status, but so far, we just have what was reported last night. Melo was apparently  in a lot of pain post-game, so much so that he needed to make a quick run for those extra special pills before the...

Rockets 91, Knicks 86: "Can someone come back and help?"

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — The semi-depleted New York Knicks stayed close against a shallow Houston Rockets team that was already missing three starters and never seemed to fully exert themselves. New York losing the game has become a running theme so far this season, and the Knicks fell to 4-11 Monday night. So the real story is probably our chief rocker, Carmelo Anthony , leaving at the end of the first half,...

Final Score: Rockets 91, Knicks 86

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Well, I missed the first 5/8 of this game and I'm distracted by what's going on in the rest of the world right now, but it looks like the Knicks hung in there. Despite Carmelo Anthony's early departure due to back spasms, the Knicks rallied and actually held a lead for parts of the second half before the Rockets stepped ahead then ran away behind some back-breaking threes. They're better...

A foolproof strategy to help the Knicks shut down James Harden

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — James Harden likes getting to the line. The Knicks like sending folks to the line. Uh-oh. The time has come once again for the New York Knicks to make their annual pilgrimage to Houston for yet another potential ass-whupping at the hands of the Houston Rockets . On Nov. 18 we celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the last time the 'Bockers won in Houston -- a 93-92 triumph spearheaded by ...

Did the Knicks' offense improve even without Jose Calderon?

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The Knicks played the first few weeks of the Triangle offense without their starting point guard. They did...kinda okay at that end! The 2014-15 New York Knicks are pretty damn close to whole now. Point guard Jose Calderon played his first game of the season in Saturday's win over the 76ers , and while I'm knocking on every piece of wood I can find, he appeared to get through the...

Knicks 91, 76ers 83: "TBD"

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — ESPN's box scores were broken Saturday night. This is what you saw when you checked stats throughout Knicks - 76ers : ...which kinda works! The Knicks are figuring stuff out, the Sixers are mostly placeholders. Their identities and achievements are to be determined. And yeah, the score of this game might as well have been 0-0. It was limp basketball-- the Knicks played some inviting defense,...

Knicks hang on to beat winless Sixers

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Yay? The Knicks did not seem terribly interested in grabbing an easy win against a wretched, 0-12 Philadelphia 76ers club on Saturday evening. Fortunately, they paid a great deal of money to one Carmelo Anthony this past summer, and Melo is the kind of guy who can carry a struggling team across the finish line. The Sixers fell behind big quickly -- as is their wont -- yet managed to scrape...

Which lineups are working best (and worst) so far for the Knicks?

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — A look at what the stats say about Derek Fisher's most-used five, three, and two-man groupings so far. Going into this season, the general consensus was that the Knicks would not be a very good team, but I don't think many people were expecting New York to be 3-10 after 13 games. Of course, there are reasons for the slow start: new schemes on offense and defense, a first-time head coach,...
