The Joakim Noah concerns grow by the day

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI – Joakim Noah is working on his free-throw technique with Jeff Hornacek as tutor, so “Hack-a-Noah’’ doesn’t become a thing. The Knicks coach believes Noah’s nightmare free-throw shooting is more “in his head’’ than technique, even though Noah’s form always has been unorthodox. It’s the latest issue in Noah’s troubled first season as a Knick. “A...

LeBron dismisses Phil Jackson peace with a single word

NY Post (Jonathan Lehman) — It took one word for Phil Jackson to land permanently in LeBron James’ doghouse. And it took one word for the reigning king of the NBA to dismiss having any kind of peace summit or make-nice conversation with the Knicks president when the Cavaliers visit Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. “No,” James said Monday night,...

Derrick Williams on awkward exit after opt-out: Knicks never called

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Derrick Williams knows his decision in late June to opt out of the final year of his Knicks’ contract, worth $4.5 million, doesn’t look great now. After signing a modest one-year Heat pact equivalent to his prior Knicks’ deal, Williams has played in just 11-of-20 games for the struggling Heat (7-13), who host the Knicks...

Derrick Rose to foes: Good luck when I play with Brandon Jennings

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — So firing squad or hanging? That is sort of how Derrick Rose sees the choice for opposing defenders when he is teamed on the floor with Brandon Jennings. So how would you like your butt kicked, by Rose/Jennings or by Carmelo Anthony/Kristaps Porzingis? “It’s hard for the defense where me and Brandon, we’re good off...

Kristaps Porzingis’ odd route to breaking shooting slump

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Kristaps Porzingis has been struggling with his shot lately. But the Knicks’ 7-3 power forward believes he has the answer to correct his struggling offense. It’s called defense. “When the game is not going my way offensively I want to lock in defensively and make some big plays on the defensive end, and that will...

Jeff Hornacek predicted Brandon Jennings’ huge game

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Jeff Hornacek, psychic. Before Sunday night’s game, Hornacek spoke about the Knicks’ need to finish and step on opponents’ throats which sort of became a theme when the Knicks let a 21-point lead get whittled to one before winning. But earlier in the day, he told his wife he believed Brandon Jennings would have a...

Carmelo Anthony leads Knicks by example with big-time shots

NY Post (Kevin Kernan) — There is a toughness flowing from Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks. And that is beginning to make a difference. Sure, the Knicks still have a way of falling asleep in games and Sunday night at the Garden they watched a 21-point lead shrink to one, but while DeMarcus Cousins was not able to hit two...

Knicks flirt with monumental collapse in rout turned exhale

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Hey, you take the good with the bad. Or in this case, the bad — the really bad — with the good. The good was the Knicks moving two games over .500 with their eighth win in their last nine home games, a 106-98 war of wills win over the Kings Sunday at the Garden....

Derrick Rose talks return to elite status, Chicago trauma and being a loner

NY Post (Steve Serby) — New Knicks point guard Derrick Rose takes a shot at some Q&A with Post columnist Steve Serby. Q: How hungry or driven are you to approach the kind of elite player you were? A: I’m always driven. I’ve always been driven. I always had the underdog mentality, no matter where I was at in my...

Knicks eye Joakim Noah as NBA’s do-everything monster lurks

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks sustained some heavy, but hardly irreparable, damage over two games at the hands of Minnesota center Karl-Anthony Towns, who racked up 67 points in a home-and-home set over three days. As good as Towns was, however, the Knicks won both games. But Sunday at the Garden, another monster of tornado force, the Kings’...

Porzingis: Why all these nail-biters are going Knicks’ way

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks are becoming masters of the cliffhanger. Their past six victories (in a 7-3 stretch) have come by a total of 25 points — and in one of the games, they won by 10. But the Knicks still prefer blowouts. “Obviously, with every game we gain more confidence that we can win these games....

Joakim Noah, who? Kyle O’Quinn makes MSG his playground

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Maybe it was the 18-foot jumper Kyle O’Quinn knocked down early in the fourth quarter, the one that temporarily halted a Timberwolves blitzkrieg and restored a modicum of order to the proceedings … No, no, that wasn’t it. Maybe this was it: The flurry a few minutes later, after the Knicks had actually handed the...

Unlikely hero bails out Knicks in tight win over Timberwolves

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks were missing two starters and getting an awful shooting performance from Kristaps Porzingis. But have no fear. Kyle O’Quinn is here. Yes, Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony stepped up big time, but the Knicks got by far the best game of O’Quinn’s Knicks career. The replacement starting center out of Queens helped hold...

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Derrick Rose was quoted in Slam Magazine this week saying he hopes he can spend the rest of his career with the Knicks. Rose will become a free agent July 1 but currently is eligible for a two-year contract extension with 4.5 percent raises on what he makes now — $21.3 million. On Dec. 22,...
