Knicks’ new sharpshooter shows off skills in preseason loss

NY Post (Jonathan Lehman) — Doug McDermott had his first scoring binge in a Knicks uniform, just in time for the games to start to count.

Why Knicks rookie couldn’t help but be a Yankees fan

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie center Luke Kornet couldn’t help but being a diehard Yankees fan his entire life — despite growing up in Arizona and Texas. His father, Frank Kornet, was best friends with Yankees general manager Brian Cashman at Lexington Catholic High School in Kentucky. Cashman and Kornet played junior varsity basketball together. The elder Kornet...

Another way Knicks have moved on from old-school Phil Jackson

NY Post (Marc Berman) — With Phil Jackson out, the Knicks are relying more on analytics, according to Jeff Hornacek, but he doesn’t want to get too crazy with it in making playing-time decisions. Knicks president Steve Mills, when first hired to run the show in place of Glen Grunwald in 2013, was hailed by owner James Dolan for being...

Knicks’ ‘football player’ drawing comparisons to Iman Shumpert

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie shooting guard Damyean Dotson wears the same “21,’’ has similar facial features, strong build and the same agent in Happy Walters. Oh, and one more trait. Dotson also plays defense like former Knicks first-round pick Iman Shumpert. Tim Hardaway Jr. has noticed the parallels. He played a season-and-a-half with Shumpert. “Dot, when you...

Porzingis doesn’t sound optimistic about his last tune-up

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The next time you see Kristaps Porzingis on the court, he may be shaking hands with mentor Carmelo Anthony at center court in Oklahoma City. Whether Porzingis’ sore right hip allows him to play the preseason finale in Washington on Friday is still a mystery, but he vowed he’ll be there for the season opener,...

Knicks add Trey Burke to chaotic point-guard situation

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks have signed point guard Trey Burke to a contract, but he’s not there to solve their point-guard woes. Barring injury in the last preseason game Friday, Burke, the former Jazz first-round pick, was signed essentially to gain his G League rights and to play for the Westchester Knicks. He is also here for...

Frank Ntilikina is impressing the Knicks, even from his couch

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Frank Ntilikina spent Friday night on his own, resting his sore right knee. But the Knicks rookie guard didn’t treat it like a night off, a chance to go out on the town in his new city. Ntilikina not only sat on his couch and watched the Knicks face the Wizards in Washington, but also...

Ugly preseason has everything Kristaps Porzingis didn’t want

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — The Knicks announcers are taking shots at him, and his right hip is barking. This can’t be the finish to the preseason Kristaps Porzingis envisioned prior to his third NBA season. Twenty-four hours after he was called out by MSG personalities Alan Hahn and Wally Szczerbiak for his ineffective play, Porzingis missed Monday night’s 117-95...

Knicks flaws won’t allow for partially tanked season

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks will announce an advertising sponsor to put on their jerseys at a Tuesday press conference. Real-life companies such as “Superior Tank,’’ “May Tank Co.’’ and “Tank Design” lost out. The Knicks didn’t want to reveal their seasonal strategy so blatantly. But the black cat is out of the bag before Halloween. Yes, Phil...

Jeff Hornacek tries to pretend he wasn’t angry with Mike D’Antoni

NY Post (Marc Berman, Zach Braziller) — Jeff Hornacek didn’t finish the thought, preferring silence to criticism. The Knicks coach seemed ticked the Rockets played their starters until the buzzer in Monday night’s preseason contest at the Garden. “No, I’m not surprised,” Hornacek said, when asked if he was fine with the move by Rockets coach and former Knicks head man Mike...

Knicks stay winless in preseason, courtesy of James Harden

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — The Knicks seem primed for the regular season — if tanking is the goal. They remained winless in the preseason Monday night, hammered by the Rockets 117-95 at the Garden. Again looking incapable of defending the opponent, the Knicks fell to 0-4 this preseason with Friday’s finale against the Wizards remaining and have yet to...

Nets showing signs they could be best basketball team in NYC

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — With Floyd Mayweather seated in the front row, the Nets put a beating on the Knicks that the boxing champion would have been proud of. Yes, it was just preseason. No, it won’t count in the standings. But after rolling 117-83 on Sunday — and hammering their cross-river rivals twice in the span of three...
