Highlights from Kurt Rambis's first press conference as head coach

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — He wants to win, which is cool. Club president Phil Jackson wasn't the only prominent Knick to face the press Monday afternoon. Kurt Rambis is now head coach, which means facing the ravenous New York press horde (albeit in the most controlled environment possible). Kurt Rambis’ full press conference after being named interim head coach. #Knicks WATCH https://t.co/d2YwdLNA2o ...

Phil Jackson explains the Derek Fisher firing, and says there may be more moves ahead

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Kurt Rambis will coach the Knicks for the rest of the season. Phil Jackson said some interesting things today while discussing the firing of Derek Fisher. 1. The new coach will probably be Triangle-friendly and Phil-friendly. Phil, on whether the next coach needs to run the triangle: "It's not paramount, but it's important." — Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) February 8, 2016 Phil...

Getting to know the Knicks' interim head coach, Kurt Rambis

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — He's been around, that's for sure. Ummmm ... hi, everybody. How about that Super Bowl , am I right? Anything else going on today? As Seth already noted , the Knicks fired head coach Derek Fisher this morning. One game before the All-Star break. That was unexpected. We'll have more coverage of Fisher's fall in the near future, but for right now let's focus on the guy replacing him,...

The Knicks fired Derek Fisher

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — ESPN sources say that the Knicks have fired coach Derek Fisher — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 8, 2016 1. Man, I really thought Fish was shaping up to be a solid NBA coach despite an uneven, half-built roster. 2. There's still been something funky going on with the team for stretches of this season, as in this recent stretch, in which they've completely sat out halves of games. A...

Nuggets 101, Knicks 96: "I am pretty sure there will be an attempted comeback somewhere in this game"

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — We play, we fall behind, we come back, we lose. The New York Knicks lost to the Denver Nuggets , 101-96, Sunday afternoon and I'm sure we all have better things to do today so I'll summarize the narrative of this game in three tweets. Tweet No. 1 -- written halfway through the second quarter, as the Knicks showed their first signs of life: need to get this deficit to 10 so they can...

Nuggets 101, Knicks 96: Scenes from a good old-fashioned Knicks poop ride

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAART The New York Knicks continued to ride their carnival clown-coaster all the way to loser town, falling to the Nuggets , 101-96. Did they come back from a huge deficit? Of course. Did they miss a potential game-tying shot? Naturally. Who even cares at this point? Kristaps Porzingis lost his damn mind in the third quarter, dropping 13 points on every manner of...

Wassup in Westchester: W-Knicks allow 21 three-pointers in loss to Maine

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Maine Red Claws 119, W-Knicks 105 The Westchester Knicks gave up all the three-pointers in Saturday's 119-105 loss to the Maine Red Claws. All of them! OK, Maybe not all the threes ... only 21 of them. Still, 21 threes is a bit excessive, wouldn't you say? Not even the big Knicks have given up so many treys to an opponent in a single game -- the record for New York Knicks...

D-League Action! Westchester Knicks vs. Maine Red Claws

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Knicks (affiliate) vs. Celtics (affiliate)! The Knicks (no, not those Knicks) travel to Portland (no, not that Portland) to take on the Maine Red Claws. The game is available on YouTube starting at 7 p.m. The Red Claws are the D-League affiliate of the Boston Celtics, so this is by far the biggest sporting event on Earth this evening. The Warriors and Thunder play at 9 p.m., which...

The good and bad of the Triangle: Fewer pick-and-rolls, no Rajon Rondo

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — More Kristaps, less Rondo. The legendary, controversial Triangle offense was in the news Friday night for a couple of reasons. Kristaps Porzingis had a scalding-hot 10-point fourth quarter. After the game, he credited his success to the team running more pick-and-roll: KP, on the increase in pick-and-roll late in games: "I think we need to do that a little more." Says its helped free...

Wassup in Westchester: Jordan Bachynski is the first clutch Knick in history

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — W-Knicks 95, Skyforce 91 Would you like to see a player in a Knicks jersey hit a clutch shot? It sounds crazy, I know, but it actually happened Friday night, albeit within the confines of the Westchester County Center. The Westchester Knicks held off a rally and topped the Sioux Fall Skyforce, 95-91. Yeah, these teams have played each other three times in a row. Center Jordan Bachynski ...

Recap: Grizzlies 91, Knicks 85 - "Why. Why. Why. Why. Why."

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Slow start. Trail throughout. Second-half run. Too little too late. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Maybe next game, the Knicks won't spend the whole night trailing. A night after as bipolar a performance as possible, New York narrowed the extremes but still dug a hole they couldn't escape, losing 91-85 to the Memphis Grizzlies . Missing Carmelo Anthony (left knee soreness) and Lance Thomas ...

Grizzlies 91, Knicks 85: Insanity is Arron Afflalo shooting over and over, expecting different results

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Afflalo misses, Knicks lose, and the dance goes on. Arron Afllalo loves taking potential game-tying or game-winning shots. He cannot hit one to save his life, but that'll never stop him from taking them. It's hard to believe this guy hasn't been a Knick his entire career! With the clock winding down and the Knicks down two and looking to take the Memphis Grizzlies into overtime....

Which areas of Kristaps Porzingis's game need the most work?

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — The redoubtable rook's exceeded every benchmark, but higher heights remain. The accolades, always impressive, no longer carry the luster of the new or the unexpected. Eastern Conference  rookie of the month . Again. Numbers trending upward, unabated, all season: 14 points, 8 boards, 2 blocks and a three-pointer in under 30 minutes per.  Pantheon players mythologize him . Opposing...

Pistons 111, Knicks 105: "The Sistine Chapel of fake comebacks"

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Lol, Knicks. The Knicks definitely took this loss lying down. They just happened to be painting a beautiful masterpiece the whole time. Detroit opened the game just bombing on New York from the opening tip, instantaneously going up 12-0 and leading by as many as 27.  I didn't like it. Derek Fisher laid into the team during a sideline interview with Craig Sager leading into the second...

Pistons 111, Knicks 105: Scenes from one of those old frantic comeback losses

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — So jerks. Such typical. The first half of this nonsensical turnover fest just got uglier and uglier until finally it was so hideous that I wished I was watching a TNT Overtime angle of Reggie Miller's mouth. Not there, so can't speak to body language. But this is the first Knick game of the 15-16 season that truly reminds me of last season. — Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) February 5,...
