Speedy youngsters have Knicks leading one ‘non-negotiable’ stat

NY Post (Marc Berman) — “The Fiz Kids” are No. 1 in the NBA in two things. They are the league’s youngest team with an average age of 24.1 and — at least after one game — the fastest. The Knicks may or may not win 30 games, but they are young, athletic and have a head coach in David...

The Knicks are thinking bigger than this Nets feud

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach David Fizdale said his team’s goal is more than being better than Brooklyn. The Knicks and Nets will scrap Friday at Barclays Center in the season’s second game for both clubs. The teams split two preseason games against each other. Chatty Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie said during the preseason the Nets are...

David Fizdale’s lineup twist worked perfectly

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Five takeaways from the Knicks’ season-opening 126-107 victory over the hapless Hawks — a game in which the club led by 28 points early in the third quarter. 1. David Fizdale’s decision to start Frank Ntilikina at the swing position paid off, and the coach didn’t care an iota about Ntilikina’s modest five-point, one-assist, 2-of-7 showing....

It was a mixed bag for the Knicks’ rookies

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — On opening night, the Knicks’ three rookies ran the gamut. There was the good (Allonzo Trier scoring 15 points), the bad (Kevin Knox making just 4-of-16 shots) and the unfortunate (Mitchell Robinson tweaking his ankle in just over a minute of action) in the Knicks’ 126-107 rout of the Hawks at the Garden on Wednesday...

Knicks get a double-double from this Noah

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Noah Vonleh looked at the roster, saw its youth, players with a similar story to his, heard coach David Fizdale’s mandate on the importance of development, and knew the Knicks were the right move. It sure seemed like a good fit on opening night for the 23-year-old forward. Taking advantage of extra playing time after...

Knicks display an energy that gives fan base a lift for one night

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Look, there is nothing wrong with savoring what you saw Wednesday night. There is nothing wrong with admitting you got a little caught up in the frenetic pace the Knicks employed, and the fact that for the first time since Prohibition there were basketball players wearing Knicks uniforms who actually looked interested in defense. There...

Knicks put on a show and open season with Hawks destruction

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Don’t get used to it, but David Fizdale’s youthful Knicks created fireworks and history on opening night. Scoring a franchise-record 49 points in the second quarter and with Tim Hardaway Jr. adjusting superbly to his No. 1 option role, the Knicks captured their season opener with a 126-107 pounding of the even-younger Hawks. The Garden...

Knicks boss denies contract rift with Kristaps Porzingis

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks president Steve Mills said he has no evidence of Kristaps Porzingis being unhappy that he didn’t get his rookie $158 million contract extension at Monday’s deadline. It was a foregone conclusion for months the Knicks would wait until he became a restricted free agent. Had they extended Porzingis, the club would have had little...

Frank Ntilikina’s season-opening start is major Fizdale statement

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It took former Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek into March before he gave Frank Ntilikina his first NBA start. New coach David Fizdale didn’t waste any time — even if it meant making the gutsy decision to sit this year’s prized lottery pick, Kevin Knox, for Wednesday’s season opener against the Hawks at the Garden. Whatever...

Opener special for Fizdale, even with Knicks’ sad-sack hopes

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — David Fizdale took comfort in the familiar most of the day Wednesday. Coaches are like that. Routines are sacraments to them. He led the Knicks through their shootaround — just another game day, 1 of 82 — and he drove to Madison Square Garden, and he studied film and he thought, a lot, about the...

Jeremy Lin sounds so happy, though maybe not with the Nets

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Lloyd Pierce’s expectations are high for Jeremy Lin’s first game as a Hawk. “I’m looking to recreate Linsanity tonight,” the Hawks coach joked Wednesday. When those comments were relayed to Lin following Wednesday’s shootaround at the Garden, he froze, like he had seen a ghost. When told it was in jest, the reference to his...

It took one game and one sales job for Kevin Durant to snap

NY Post (Justin Terranova) — It’s going to be a long season for Kevin Durant. The rumors about Durant opting out and leaving the Warriors this offseason have been running rampant, with the Knicks mentioned as a possible destination. “I just want people to focus on basketball,” Durant told Yahoo Sports after scoring 27 points in Golden State’s 108-100 season-opening...

Knicks GM: Teams wanted first-rounder for Joakim Noah

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks general manager Scott Perry never saw Joakim Noah as a good match for this rebuilding 2018-19 Knicks team, and said trading him or releasing him via the league’s stretch provision was the only measure that made sense. Noah was finally waived Saturday after Perry had tried to trade him since late January. Teams wanted...

Knicks GM’s curious response about if Porzingis is happy with deal

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks general manager Scott Perry claimed he’s in a “comfortable place” with Kristaps Porzingis after it became official Monday he’s not getting his contract extension until he becomes a restricted free agent in July.

The strange reality that Knicks’ hope is already gone

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Wednesday is opening night for the Knicks, which means the regulars at Madison Square Garden will begin their 41-night routines in and around Penn Plaza, which means the City Game will officially return to the city, which means New York’s basketball fans will be renewing all of the old habits. Well, with one exception. Everyone...
