NY Post (Alex Squadron) — During the fourth quarter of a 103-91 loss Monday to the TrailBlazers, a teammate turned to Enes Kanter on the bench and delivered an important message. “’Hey you better get healthy soon. We need you bad out there,'” Kanter recalled being told, right before the Knicks dropped their third consecutive game without their center, who...

Frank Ntilikina’s roller-coaster night a true learning experience

NY Post (Greg Joyce, Jonathan Lehman) — Frank Ntilikina managed to wrap a typical rookie season all into one night Monday at the Garden. After shooting 0-for-4 with a turnover in the first half, the Knicks point guard was benched for the entire third quarter. He showed some life in the fourth as the Knicks mounted a comeback, but it was hardly...

Enes Kanter instigating fights from bench: ‘I’ll pay the fine’

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — Enes Kanter sat out a third straight game Monday night as he continued to fight back spasms, but that didn’t mean the Knicks’ emotional leader couldn’t help inject some energy into his lifeless teammates with a suggestion. “I told — I’m not going to tell who — I told somebody, ‘Hey man, go out there...

What Knicks do next could determine their whole season

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Twenty games in, and the Knicks are officially entangled in their first crisis. It isn’t their first three-game losing streak; that trifecta led off the season, but that was still when we — and, in truth, they — thought this could be a legitimate 82-game mudslide. They were 0-3 then. It was impossible to guess...

Joakim Noah’s long-awaited return to Knicks just a cameo

NY Post (Jonathan Lehman) — Welcome to Year 2 of Joakim Noah’s infamous Knicks tenure: uncertain when he will be in uniform, grateful for any minutes at all.

Knicks can’t find their old Garden magic as slump worsens

NY Post (Jonathan Lehman) — The Knicks are slumping. The buzz of electricity that had echoed through Madison Square Garden in the early stages of this surprising season was replaced by groans and scattered boos Monday night as the sluggish Knicks easily were handled by the Trail Blazers 103-91 for their third straight loss. The Knicks (10-10) had won nine...

Enes Kanter on a mission back with ‘pretty strong’ pills and willpower

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Maybe it was the pain medication talking, but center Enes Kanter vowed to play Monday, when the Knicks return home from their disastrous 0-2 Southern trip to play Portland. Kanter missed both losses with back spasms and still hasn’t recovered, but he wants to suit up anyhow if team doctors allow it. The Knicks’ quirky,...

Hakeem Olajuwon would like to teach Porzingis a few things

NY Post (Marc Berman) — HOUSTON — Hakeem Olajuwon is now a Rockets adviser who has expressed interest in an ownership stake. So the Nigerian great no longer can run his post skills school where he once hosted Amar’e Stoudemire as a Knick. Nevertheless, Olajuwon said he would love to work with 7-foot-3 Kristaps Porzingis, but frankly, the retired Rockets...

Porzingis-less Knicks start quick but fade away in loss to Rockets

NY Post (Marc Berman) — HOUSTON — It was a fantastic start, that’s for sure. There’s a theory the 22-point lead the Knicks Lite built late in the first quarter was just a mirage. Did it really happen? It did, but it was a blink of an eye as the Rockets dominated the rest of Saturday night and cruised to...

Derrick Rose is a sad sports tale of what could have been

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — We are besieged with the melancholy subject of “What if?” all the time in baseball, especially when it comes to pitchers. What could Mark Prior have been? Or Matt Harvey, for that matter? In some ways, that’s always an underlying reality waiting just beneath the turf. It’s worse in football, of course, because the nature...

The Knicks’ flaws were on display in an unforgivable loss

Why Enes Kanter blames himself for disappointing Knicks loss

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ATLANTA — It was unclear which hurt more after the Knicks’ 116-104 collapse to the awful Hawks — Enes Kanter’s back or his heart.

Knicks lay an egg with late collapse against terrible Hawks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ATLANTA — The Knicks suffered their own Black Friday in a horrible 116-104 loss to the Hawks at Philips Arena. The Knicks have proven they can win without Carmelo Anthony. They couldn’t prove they can win without starting center Enes Kanter, even against the NBA’s worst team with a no-name young roster. The Knicks went...
