New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

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...

Warriors 103, Knicks 90: Ron Baker outscored Steph Curry so the Knicks technically won

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Ron Steph. History will record Thursday night’s game as a 103-90 victory for the Golden State Warriors. But sometimes history fails to capture the moment of pure athletic perfection. Knicks win. pic.twitter.com/GKQDlPlVyn — Joseph Flynn (@ChinaJoeFlynn) December 16, 2016 That’s right, folks: Ron Baker outscored two-time reigning MVP Steph Curry. It was close at halftime, with Ron...

Knicks practice notes: Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose ponder injuries, possibly sitting out

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Rose’s back is still troubling him, while Melo is experiencing general wear-and-tear. The Knicks held a practice Wednesday in preparation for Thursday’s “Battle of the Super Teams” against the Golden State Warriors. The general theme from the post-practice comments seemed to be tired, ailing veterans debating whether or not they should sit out. Derrick Rose seems a bit frustrated with his...

Hanging out with friends? Seeing movies? Brushing off haterz? If so, you’re a lot like the Knicks.

Suns 113, Knicks 110 (OT): ‘I think those Space Jam aliens stole Melo's skills’

Posting and Toasting (zachdiluzio) — Not much to like from this game, even though it was close. I guess we were due for this kind of game. The Knicks played some of the worst basketball of this young season throughout the first three quarters. They had no business being in this game at all. The incompetence was remarkably pervasive, affecting every single facet of this beautiful game for 36 minutes straight. The silver lining...

Suns 113, Knicks 111 (OT): Scenes from the season’s first true heart-breaker

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Crap. This game sucked. Ass. The Suns are a crappy team of goons, and on this evening the Knicks thoroughly out-crapped them for three quarters. They mounted a furious comeback to take the lead, then went into prime late-game Knicks offense toward the final seconds. Kristaps Porzingis, who carried the team most of the evening, missed a shot at the end of regulation, and fouled out in...

Derrick Rose’s back spasms are back; he has been ruled out for the remainder of the game

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Backs are dumb. Derrick Rose has been ruled out for the remainder of Tuesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns with back spasms. Derrick Rose will not return - back spasms. — NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) December 14, 2016 Rose played nine minutes in the first half, missing all six of his field goal attempts. Rose missed two games last week with these back problems. Brandon Jennings...
