Ron Baker’s courage only cost him one game

NY Post (Marc Berman) — WASHINGTON — Ron Baker subscribes to the old-school no-layup, no-dunk rule. It’s why Jeff Hornacek loves him.

Michael Beasley couldn’t coax Knicks out of poor shooting night

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — You barely break 90 points. You just nudge over 40 percent shooting for the game. You normally don’t have anyone to be considered an offensive standout. But the .402-shooting, 100-91-losing Knicks in their effort Tuesday against the Spurs at the Garden, actually received a strong offensive game from Michael Beasley. Again. “You can call it...

Jeff Hornacek won’t alter Knicks’ plans for tough back-to-back

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks play Tuesday against the Spurs and Wednesday against the Wizards. Suffice to say a back-to-back set is not the Knicks’ preferred modus operandi.
