Enes Kanter wants no part of David Fizdale’s consolation prize

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks center Enes Kanter doesn’t want an award. He wants the playoffs. Kanter’s postseason sentiment contradicts coach David Fizdale’s remark last week. Fizdale said the league’s youngest team isn’t “chasing victories” when he boldly moved to start 20-year-old project Mitchell Robinson, who had barely picked up a basketball until he was in 10th grade, over...

Kevin Knox wasted no time making presence felt in return

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie lottery pick Kevin Knox got a big ovation when he checked in with 9:48 left in the first quarter Monday night. Almost immediately he made an impact. Enes Kanter tipped a ball loose and Knox stole it from Antonio Blakeney and glided in for a fast-break dunk with 8:50 to go. That was...

Knicks’ youth movement isn’t making it easy on veterans

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — It is one thing to be asked to buy into a meritocracy. Everything about that seems right. Everything about that seems fair. The best players play. If the best players are being outplayed by their backups on a given night, the subs play. It is an easy system to endorse in theory. It is less...

Questionable foul spoils Knicks rookie’s big night in 2OT loss

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier made his first career start, and after missing his first six shots, he lifted the Knicks in the fourth quarter Monday night against the Bulls.

Kevin Knox is back

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie lottery-pick Kevin Knox is back. Knicks coach David Fizdale wasn’t going to dispute the doctors, so he allowed Knox to play Monday against the Bulls despite not going through a five-on-five scrimmage before his return from an ankle sprain. The doctors cleared Knox anyway to play Monday against the Bulls after missing seven...

Knicks rookies are showing the fight David Fizdale loves to see

NY Post (Marc Berman) — WASHINGTON — It is a fine balance but Knicks coach David Fizdale said he is impressed by the fire of two of his rookies, even if it means the occasional technical foul.

Kevin Knox still has hurdle to clear before return to Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — WASHINGTON — Will prized rookie lottery pick Kevin Knox make his return Monday versus the Bulls? That’s Knox’s hope, but coach David Fizdale said he is still unsure.

Knicks fade early and late and quickly crash back to earth

NY Post (Marc Berman) — WASHINGTON — The Knicks couldn’t score 100 points against the league’s worst defensive team statistically. Tim Hardaway Jr. couldn’t get to double figures. That’s what happens when your dominant scorer stinks up the night and gets a back injury to boot. Hardaway, who got hit in the back in the second quarter, finished with seven...

NY Post (Marc Berman) — WASHINGTON — Knicks rookie project center Mitchell Robinson dispatched DeAndre Jordan on Friday and now gets his crack at Dwight Howard on Sunday at Capital One Arena.

Knicks’ rookie trio looks ready to take over the NBA

NY Post (Marc Berman) — WASHINGTON — “The Sniper, the Scorer and the Shotblocker.” The 3-6 Knicks may or may not win 30 games this season. Brass’ patient master plan may not ultimately turn the Knicks into a legitimate championship contender one day. But you can’t argue their rookie threesome of Allonzo Trier, Kevin Knox and Mitchell Robinson isn’t one...

David Fizdale: Off-the-ball move gave Ntilikina ‘some clarity’

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DALLAS — No, the Knicks didn’t win the Frank Ntilikina-Dennis Smith Jr. scoring battle, but they didn’t need to in their 118-106 victory at American Airlines Arena on Friday night. Ntilikina had an off shooting night (2-for-8, 0-for-4 from 3, seven points), sat some of the fourth quarter for Emmanuel Mudiay, but also had seven...

Rookies Trier and Robinson dominate as Knicks whip Mavericks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DALLAS — Rick Carlisle, the Mavericks’ esteemed coach, called the young Knicks “relentless’’ and “extremely dangerous’’ before the teams faced each other Friday night.

Knicks double down on Mitchell Robinson commitment

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DALLAS — Knicks coach David Fizdale sounded full steam ahead on continuing rookie Mitchell Robinson as the starting center, hinting it may be for the rest of the season.
