The Knicks’ first point guard hope could be first to go

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO, Fla. — In the second quarter Wednesday at Amway Center, Jeff Hornacek motioned to the bench. Point guard Ramon Sessions popped up, started taking off his warm-up top.

NY Post (Marc Berman) — ORLANDO, Fla. — The Knicks aren’t the same with Kristaps Porzingis in a blue checkered suit sitting on the bench. No unicorn Wednesday night meant no victory.

How Frank Ntilikina continues to show he isn’t a typical rookie

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Frank Ntilikina is shattering some NBA stereotypes. There are certain truths the NBA world has held to be self-evident since the time someone decided a piece of curved iron would work better than a peach basket as a goal. Rookies cannot play defense. Teenage rookies cannot and will not play defense. European teenage rookies cannot...

Hornets rookie showed Knicks the potential they passed on

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Maybe the Knicks should have drafted Malik Monk after all. He certainly looked at home at the Garden on Tuesday night. Monk, the former one-and-done Kentucky star some fans had hoped the Knicks would draft last June, enjoyed one of his best performances as a pro, scoring 21 points in the Hornets’ 118-113 loss. “He...

Knicks’ ‘other guys’ take charge in another Garden party

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — The capper, of course, came from Kristaps Porzingis, because that’s the way it happens with the Knicks now, just about every night, in just about any circumstance you can imagine.

Kristaps Porzingis’ magic caps Knicks’ full-team comeback

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — So, you couldn’t get to the Garden on Tuesday night? Well, if you were there Sunday, you saw the Knicks’ latest Houdini act. And vice versa.

Why it’s finally OK to jump on the Knicks bandwagon

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — So the city was all agog and googly-eyed, the way it gets whenever the Knicks put together an early-season winning streak.
