New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

Are Derrick Rose’s drives to the basket helping the Knicks’ offense?

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — Spoiler alert: yeah, probably. It’s an understatement to say Derrick Rose has been a divisive player among Knicks fans this season. Opinions on his play seem to be either very positive or very negative, with almost nothing in between. This divide is especially present in reactions to Rose’s affinity for driving to the basket. Fans of Rose’s play appreciate his ability to finish at the rim,...

In praise of Sasha Vujacic. Seriously.

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — When he’s hitting shots, the Machine brings a caginess that the Knicks sorely lack. The current iteration of Sasha Vujacic is actually a very interesting player. There's nothing particularly remarkable about him. He's athletically outclassed in almost every possible matchup, even against backups. He doesn't have any standout offensive skills outside of his shooting ability. He's not...

Cavaliers 126, Knicks 94: 'We were most likely not gonna win this game'

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Yuck. Tonight the New York Knicks met the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game that was like what happens when you face a boss in a video game for the first time. You get smacked down. 126-94 smacked down. In the first buzzworthy game of the Phil Jackson era, the buzz died, quickly and completely. Each team started hot. But as the Knicks fell back to Earth, the Cavs ascended unto the heavens, led...

Cavaliers 126, Knicks 94: Scenes from the now-standard Cavs blowout win

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — They are quite good. The lame-stream media will try to tell you that the Cleveland Cavaliers won Wednesday night’s contest at Madison Square Garden by the score of 126-94. Don’t believe it, loyal readers. As far as I’m concerned, the Cavaliers forfeited the game as soon as this happened: Forgive me, Shump. I know it’s petty, but this was an evening for pettiness. The Cavs, high-octane...

Knicks vs. Cavaliers Preview: Revenge of the Posse

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — HOT TAKE: LeBron will probably play well. After a really nice four game win streak against bad teams (which isn't a bad thing -- good teams beat bad ones), this game spells trouble. The Cavs are insanely good under normal circumstances, and they're a tough matchup for the Knicks to boot, but this game could be special for LeBron, which is a huge problem. Why is that? Well, this is the...

Knicks 114, Heat 103: ‘We never stopped’

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — The Knicks turned up the intensity in the second half to bury the Heat. Google “NBA standings” and a box appears listing the top five teams in the Eastern Conference. There’s a drop-down arrow you have to click to see the rest of the standings. For as long as I remember, I’ve had to click that damn arrow to see where the Knicks is at. Google the standings. Right now. See that? Look who’s top...

Knicks 114, Heat 103: Scenes from the Kymelo O’Quinthony show

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — Kyle O’Quinn and Carmelo Anthony both played superbly and led New York to a big win. Hey, a double-digit win! And over Miami, no less! (Not that the Heat are particularly good but, you know, Pat Riley.) While the Knicks have been playing quite well of late, it’s been almost a month since we had one of those. After a really lethargic first half, New York got their shit together coming out...

Derrick Rose left tonight’s game with back spasms

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — Poopy. Some bad news in the midst of a pretty fun second half of basketball: Derrick Rose has backs spasms and will not return. — NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) December 7, 2016 He left at the 6 minute mark of the third quarter. Derrick Rose’s play has seriously picked up of late, but he wasn’t performing particularly well tonight (10 points on 4/12 shooting and only 3 assists in 24...

Knicks vs. Heat Preview: Never underestimate the evil of Pat Riley

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — Good D, good coach. This won't be as easy as it looks. On paper, the Miami team that has destroyed the Knicks for years has thankfully fallen into disarray. Dwyane Wade's constant beef with Pat Riley over the details of his contract (he took a paycut throughout the "Big 3" years, and wanted to make his money back) resulted in a big ol' game of free agent chicken, which Wade won by flipping...

Pablo Prigioni returns to Spanish club Baskonia, joins ex-Knicks Andrea Bargnani and Shane Larkin

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — He was too beautiful for this country. How do I say goodbye to what we had? The good times that made us laugh, outweighed the bad. I thought we'd get to see forever, but forever has blown away. It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday. Pablo Prigioni will join former Knicks Shane Larkin and Andrea Bargnani in Baskonia: https://t.co/8Du999vhfI #knicks cc/ @ChinaJoeFlynn —...

This Week In Knicks Social Media: Wrongs are righted, mysteries are revealed

Posting and Toasting (chiniqua) — In Instagram as in basketball, the devil’s in the details To begin with this week, a great oversight must be corrected. In last week’s paean to rising media star Marshall Plumlee, Fcpress pointed out that I had completely missed a very important post. I’m sure you remember that Marshall and Willy (and maybe Ron Baker) spent Thanksgiving at Justin Holiday’s house. If you didn’t, you...

MSG Dispatches: The Knicks are winning, but still bothered by blown third quarter leads

Posting and Toasting (Kristian Winfield) — Coughing up third quarter leads has become a trend for the Knicks in recent games. For a player whose team had just pulled out its eighth win in 11 games, the best in the Eastern Conference during that stretch, Knicks guard Derrick Rose remained critical of his team’s performance in New York’s 106-98 win over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday. “We’re still so far away from that,” said Rose...

Knicks 106, Kings 98: ‘We have evolved into fake blowouts’

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Fake blowouts fake comebacks. New York won for the eighth time in 11 games and eighth out of nine at home, defeating Sacramento 106-98. The Knicks are two games over .500 for the first time since you were a dream and a speck in somebody’s eye. They opened doing that thing where they put the opponent in the penalty three or four minutes into a quarter, and all the Knicks save one were...

Knicks 106, Kings 98: Scenes from the blowout that became a nail-biter

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — A win is a win! The New York Knicks let a 20-point third quarter lead slip away, but they held off the Sacramento Kings to finish off the weekend with a 106-98 win. Exhale. Derrick Rose carried the ‘Bockers early on offense, nabbing buckets in bunches with crafty craftiness such as this: Got ‘em, . #NYKvsSAC #Knicks pic.twitter.com/wJdUFt0XSv — NEW YORK KNICKS (@nyknicks) ...

Kings coach Dave Joerger coached Mindaugas Kuzminskas in 2010 Eurocamp, compared him to Andrei Kirilenko

Posting and Toasting (Kristian Winfield) — Joerger coached ‘Kuz’ in a Eurocamp league nearly a decade ago and said he has Kirilenko-like energy. Mindaugas Kusminskas doesn’t remember every basketball camp he’s participated in on his journey to the NBA. So the Knicks rookie forward drew a blank when asked about a specific camp from six years ago. But Kings coach Dave Joerger vividly remembers coaching Kuzminskas at the 2010 adidas...
