X’s and Uh-O’s: Breaking down 4 plays from Knicks-Wizards

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Some good, some bad. There were a million possession in last night’s Knicks/Wizards game. In today’s X’s and Uh-O’s, let’s look at four that hinted at hustle, non-hustle, non-intelligence, and what could be the start of a beautiful relationship. Marshall Plumlee getting after it on D The Knicks are not a good defensive team. I’m not smart enough to understand why that is. Everybody talks...

Carmelo Anthony and Phil Jackson are both innocents

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Hey, perhaps we can give both guys a break. Carmelo Anthony will not, apparently, waive his no-trade clause. Phil Jackson will not, apparently, publicly address much of anything having to do with the team he runs. Anthony’s refusal to uproot his wife and child to chase a ring the rest of the world has decided he should prioritize above all else rubs folks the wrong way. Jackson’s silent...

Washington 113, New York 110: “What the **** was that?”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — The 2017 Knicks are Chinese water torture and tonight was the night the drip turned truly tortuous. Two good quarters were undone by two abominable ones, and a nightmarish end sequence on both ends on the floor sealed a 113-110 loss to the Washington Wizards. Here is a graphic representation of tonight’s contest: The Triangle Lol Posted by The Knicks Discussion on Wednesday, January...

Wizards 113, Knicks 110: Scenes from a romper-stomper

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Two in a row is too much to ask. John Wall and the Washington Wizards flamed on the Knicks tonight. Wall danced and dazzled, getting anywhere he wanted as he peppered the help defense with diamond-cut passes. Carmelo Anthony did his best to bring the Knicks back to life in the second quarter. Sadly the team was unable to sustain the dominance. The Wizards casually shuffled through the...

Knicks 117, Celtics 106: ‘Courtney Lee is better at basketball than he is at posting on Instagram’

Posting and Toasting (Harrison Rahajason) — This game shall henceforth be dubbed “The Willy Hernangomez Game”...or the “lol Horford went 2-14 game.” wut. Did that just happen? There’s no way that really just happened. Holy crap, that just happened. The Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah-less Knicks went to Boston to play the Celtics and won. And they didn’t just beat them, no. They, like, beeeeaaaattt them. Yup, this one felt...

Knicks 117, Celtics 106: Scenes from New York’s bench pummeling Boston until I cried tears of joy

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — It was so beautiful. The New York Knicks beat the Celtics. In Boston. Without Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah. With Carmelo Anthony (13 points on 5-14 shooting) as their fourth -leading scorer. My soul is still absorbing the majesty The ‘Bockers out-rebounded Boston 57-33 thanks to standout glass-cleaning performances from the likes of Willy Hernangomez (17 points, 11 rebounds),...

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) and Joakim Noah (ankle) will each undergo an MRI Thursday

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Better safe than sorry. Remember Kristaps Porzingis? The light of our lives? The fire of our loins? New York’s favorite unicorn is sitting out his fourth straight game Wednesday night due to a bum Achilles. I didn’t know unicorns had Achilles tendons, but then again I’m not a unicorn vet. In more disturbing news, Kristaps will go for an MRI Thursday. Per Stefan Bondy: Porzingis isn't...

Knicks-Celtics Preview: At least try to contain Kelly Olynyk

Posting and Toasting (Harrison Rahajason) — The Knicks will play the Celtics tonight in Boston, which is sub-optimal. The brush, floss, rinse, repeat cycle is absolutely in full force for the Knicks. The awful losing streak, the melodrama, the injuries and the weird behind-the-scenes drama that seems to happen every year — the Knicks have seen it all. Thankfully, Knicks fans are completely used to this and I think most of us have...

This Week in Knicks Social Media: Looking for Signs of Hope

Posting and Toasting (chiniqua) — In which we wonder at the meaning of “week” and search for rays of sunshine Happy New Year, Posters and Toasters! Back on the Knicks social media beat capping off an absolutely miserable few weeks for the team. But we here at TWiKSM are not bound by petty things like “wins” and “losses”! Heartbreaking defeat doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun. So here are some little bits of happiness...

Carmelo Anthony met with Phil Jackson, reportedly reaffirmed his wish to stay with Knicks

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — So we’re all good now, right? Phil Jackson, president of the Knicks made a plan to speak to Carmelo Anthony, longest-tenured and highest-paid player on the Knicks, regarding an article written by Charley Rosen, former Albany Patroons assistant coach and current blogger. This meeting hasn’t been quite as easy to come by as you’d think: New York Knicks prez Phil Jackson plans to meet with...

Hawks 108, Knicks 107: “Knicks.”

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Fresh off a blowout, New York lost a heart-breaker. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee at Madison Square Garden between New York and Atlanta was an up-and-down affair that ended familiarly for the Knicks: down. A late comeback led to a five-point lead they couldn’t hold, and a last-minute Dennis Schroder three gave the Hawks the win. Jeff Hornacek said he’d shake up the lineup and he...

Hawks 108, Knicks 107: Scenes from NOT AGAIN

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — Well...this is going south quickly. After the last-minute insertion of Ron “Burgundy” Baker and Mindaugas Kuzminskas into the starting lineup, the Knicks were kinda able to translate that spark into a decent performance for most of the game. Also interesting — these two teams do not like each other, and it’s translated in both games this season. It was a physical, down and dirty affair;...

Carmelo Anthony will talk to Phil Jackson about a trade if Phil wants to

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — In an online article , Charley Rosen, Phil Jackson’s seeming troll-by-proxy, wrote that Carmelo Anthony “has outlived his usefulness in New York.” The Rosen piece included reviews of all the Knicks, and given that his take on Sasha Vujacic was “needs more playing time,” his analysis is questionable. So is his claim to solely be expressing his point of view and not Jackson’s, given that Rosen...

Raptors 116, Knicks 101: ‘Breen's sad and disappointed voice is heartbreaking’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The Knicks are broken. Sunday’s game between the Knicks and Raptors was a tale of two quarters — the second and third, both of which totally sucked, but in very different ways. Toronto had the most leisurely 42-point second quarter I’ve ever seen. Usually when the points pile up that quickly, especially at home, you’ll see a few spectacular fast-break moments that send the...

Lance Thomas suffering from concussion symptoms, orbital bone fracture following Sunday’s game

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — If the Knicks lead the league in anything this season, they lead the league in orbital bone fractures. Knicks forward Lance Thomas suffered a particularly brutal blow to the head a mere two minutes into Sunday’s game against the Toronto Raptors. He struggled to get off the court, and would not return in New York’s 116-101. Now that the proper tests have been conducted, we are learning the...
