Willy Hernangomez replaces Porzingis as Knicks’ injury worry

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks figure to welcome Kristaps Porzingis back to active duty Wednesday in Orlando. So naturally they plan to be without center Willy Hernangomez. Apparently there is a ban on too much happy news for the Knicks. While Porzingis practiced Tuesday in Tarrytown after missing two games with a sprained right ankle, Hernangomez sat out...

Larry Brown to Phil Jackson: Quit pulling strings and coach the Knicks

NY Post (BobThompson) — Peering into the Knicks’ power structure, Larry Brown has a message for Phil Jackson: If you want the triangle offense, be the coach. The former Knicks head coach said it’s wrong for Jackson to force his style of play on current coach Jeff Hornacek, as the Knicks place a bigger focus on the system Jackson made famous. Brown,...

Carmelo Anthony is asking for another talk with Phil Jackson

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Carmelo Anthony wants to sit down and chat with Knicks president Phil Jackson later rather than sooner. “I don’t think right now.

Knicks turning rest of season into triangle auditions

NY Post (Jonathan Lehman) — Now that Phil Jackson’s power struggle with Carmelo Anthony has cooled and the trade deadline has passed without converting their pending free-agent point guards into any assets, the Knicks can get back to what’s most important: the triangle offense, and dumping guys who don’t get it. Jeff Hornacek said Tuesday he would use the remaining...

Courtney Lee has to show up like this for Knicks more often

NY Post (Ryan Lazo) — When Courtney Lee rose off the Madison Square Garden court and released a high-arcing 3-pointer that went softly through the nylon to give the Knicks a one-point lead with 10.6 seconds remaining, he put the cap on a 16-point performance the Knicks need more of for the duration of his four-year, $50 million contract. However,...

Phil Jackson made an absolute mess of this Knicks season

NY Post (George Willis) — At the end of his press conference before Monday night’s game against the Raptors, Jeff Hornacek assured everyone the Knicks were still trying to win games. It only sounded like the death of a season. First Hornacek confirmed center Joakim Noah would be out three to four weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. Then the...

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Brandon Jennings is gone for good, Joakim Noah might be done for the season and the Knicks’ focus on playing the young guys is about to go into full swing.

Fighting Knicks refuse to tank in thriller — but still do the job

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek and his players didn’t get the email from Phil Jackson they ought to think about tanking. Before tipoff Monday against the mighty Raptors, Hornacek said angrily, “Who says we’re trying to lose?’’ And they did almost everything not to. In the end, however, DeMar Derozan became the last-second hero, and Carmelo...

Why Knicks wanted a second chance at Chasson Randle

NY Post (Ryan Lazo) — It’s been a full-circle journey for Chasson Randle this season. First, he tore up the summer league in Las Vegas for the Knicks. Next, he dominated the D-League in Westchester before being picked up by the Sixers on multiple 10-day contracts while living in a hotel room. Then, just as he moved into an apartment...

Some Carmelo advice helped Willy Hernangomez turn a corner

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The mind is a terrible thing to use. At least when you should be reacting. Just ask Knicks rookie center Willy Hernangomez. With Joakim Noah expected to miss an eighth straight game with a sore left hamstring Monday when the Raptors invade the Garden, Hernangomez likely will get another start. He has done well, starting...

The Knicks’ triangle is rising again, and so is Kurt Rambis

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks sidestepped plunging into 13th place in the East on Carmelo Anthony’s last-second shot Saturday. They face a week that starts Monday with one of the best teams in the East, Toronto, and ends Sunday with the best team in the West, Golden State. So naturally a big topic of conversation was the triangle...

Knicks’ two big men hold their own against Jahlil Okafor

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Jahlil Okafor, the Knicks suspected, had something to prove. The third overall pick in 2015, had been out of the rotation in Philadelphia, but now seems entrenched after the trade of Nerlens Noel. Yup, probably had something to prove. But Knicks centers Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O’Quinn felt the same way. They needed to show...
