Wassup in Westchester: Cleanthony Early was traded, Chasson Randle won D-League Player of the Week

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — So long, Cle. The Cleanthony Early Era in New York (the state) has come to an ignominious end. The first draft pick of the Phil Jackson regime, who struggled through two injury-plagued seasons with the Big Knicks before signing a deal with Westchester in the offseason, has been traded to the Santa Cruz Warriors: ICYMI: Westchester acquired guard Courtney Fells in a three-team trade that...

What did we learn from Ron Baker's stint as backup point guard?

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — Placed in an uncomfortable situation at the point, Baker showcased some skills. This week brough forth a new, unheralded revelation for many Knicks fans. Derrick Rose's back spasms left the Knicks with a shallow point guard rotation, and the apparent removal of Sasha Vujacic from the rotation left the doors wide open for a change at the third-string point guard position. To top it off,...

MSG Dispatches: Knicks' defensive adjuments on Al Jefferson sparked comeback

Posting and Toasting (Kristian Winfield) — The Knicks upped their defensive intensity and keyed in on Al Jefferson to help erase a 15-point third quarter deficit. Paul George said the Knicks played the same defense late in the second half that his Pacers were able to build a double-digit third quarter lead against. But New York upped its intensity and made some defensive adjustments, keying on Al Jefferson to turn a 15-point...

Knicks 118, Pacers 111: ‘Comeback: Authenticated’

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — At one point, in the middle of the third quarter, I started to contemplate the 2017 draft lottery. The Knicks were down 15 to a mediocre Indiana team, and it was more of the same disheartening product that we saw in spades during the recently concluded road trip. After a strong first quarter on both ends of the floor, it appeared that the entire squad received the basketball equivalent of...

Knicks 116, Pacers 109: Scenes from another... hold the phone... an avalanche of threes!

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — The Knicks are good when they play in New York! The Knicks got up early but the Pacers just frolicked their merry selves back into it. After some clean passing and lariat shot-making, everyone decided to start turning the ball over. Derrick Rose was back, but seemed rusty, and there was too much uncertainty in his flailed advances in the first half. Nevertheless, New York had the early...

Knicks vs. Pacers Preview: Can the Knicks get back on track against an old rival?

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — The Pacers are boring, but we still hate them The Pacers are a weird team right now, for a lot of reasons. The old Reggie Miller days are long gone, to the point where many Knicks fans struggle to fully grasp the depths of hatred most oldheads have reserved for the Pacers. Also gone are Roy Hibbert, David West, and George Hill, who sonned the Knicks in the playoffs to end the incredible...

Wassup in Westchester: Chasson Randle follows up his 38-point Friday with a 36-point Sunday

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Pretty strong weekend. Chasson Randle’s weekend of annihilation continued Sunday afternoon with 36 points on 13-24 shooting (7-9 from three), 4 rebounds and 5 assists in a 120-106 win over the Austin Spurs. Add that to his 38-point performance Friday night and that’s 16 threes in 20 attempts for the Westchester Knicks guard...over the weekend. Randle started Friday’s game shooting an...

Jeff Hornacek not blaming Joakim Noah for Knicks’ poor first quarters

Posting and Toasting (Kristian Winfield) — Carmelo Anthony called it a “must-win game,” but the Knicks looked anything but urgent. New York twice trailed the Denver Nuggets by as much as 21, and without Derrick Rose (back spasms), the team lost its third straight game, 127-114. Anthony scored 29 points on 10-for-14 shooting, but no other Knicks starters shot better than 37 percent from the field. Kristaps Porzingis scored 22 points,...

Nuggets 127, Knicks 114: ‘I think we have the superior Hernangomez brother’

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Sadly, the Knicks won’t get credit for winning the Battle of the Hernagomezes. I have a cold, the weather sucks, and the Knicks can’t play defense. Winter is here, folks! New York ended what once looked to be a promising Western Conference road trip with a decided thud, losing to the Denver Nuggets, 127-114. The Nuggets missed 12 free throws, so it could have been worse. The defense is bad,...

Nuggets 127, Knicks 114: Scenes from a ass-whooping at altitude

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The road trip ends with a whimper. The Knicks were finishing up a long road trip, playing in a city where they never win (Denver), and they played fairly standard Knicks defense. The results were predictable: a blowout loss. The Nuggets shot approximately 149% from the field and 287% from beyond the arc. New York defenders struggled to protect the paint, and overreacted in the style of a...

Wassup in Westchester: Chasson Randle hit 9 threes in W-Knicks win

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The preseason hero broke out of his shooting slump in a big way. With Derrick Rose nursing a balky back, the Knicks’ lack of depth at point guard has become readily apparent. Sure, Ron Baker is a cold-blooded assassin who out-dueled Steph Curry the other night, but another floor general would be a welcomed addition. Many Knicks fans consider Chasson Randle to be the heir apparent to the...

Knicks practice notes: Carmelo Anthony will play Saturday, Derrick Rose is still questionable

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The Knicks are hoping to win in Denver for the first time in a decade. The New York Knicks headed for the Rockies Friday, practicing in Denver in preparation for Saturday’s clash with the Denver Nuggets. New York needs a victory to pull out a winning road trip, so it would be nice to get back two of their starters, Carmelo Anthony and Rose, both of whom missed Thursday’s loss to the...

What does the new collective bargaining agreement mean for the Knicks?

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Some of everything? Much of anything? First and foremost, we rejoice ! The owners and the players decided it’s a good idea to keep this faucet running. Let’s hope there’s no Kevin McCallister’s floating around once the new agreement is underway. Some things never change. The split of Basketball Related Income will remain the same. BRI was hotly contested during the 2011 lockout...

Phil Jackson is likely to stay with the Knicks, so let’s talk about it!

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — The good, the bad and the indifferent of Phil staying in NY. Imagine if the Knicks, following Thursday’s game at Golden State with both Derrick Rose (back spasms) and Carmelo Anthony (thirtysomethingness) out, were 12-14. Imagine the storylines. Heads shaking told you so at Rose’s sad turn from star to star-crossed to falling star. Anthony resting would be an embarrassment of oxygen to...

Warriors 103, Knicks 90: ‘The Warriors are good enough they can start JaVale McGee’

Posting and Toasting (Bryan Renzi) — A destruction foretold. P&T’er Zombor proved prophetic by making the headline quote above during the pregame. Golden State showed exactly how good they are by turning McGee into a vicious hell-kite dive-bombing the rim, thanks to a medley of alley-oops and set-ups for uncontested jams. With 17 points, it was the most McGee has scored in a game since 2013. Really, this game was like older...
