Derrick Rose could play his way to contract security with Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Through 17 games, point guard Derrick Rose has shown enough progress that a lucrative new contract could be in store for him with the Knicks this summer.

Rising Derrick Rose is ready for Russell Westbrook — finally

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Derrick Rose knocked on the steel of his black locker cubicle late Saturday night in Charlotte. Rose’s good-luck pat wasn’t because Hurricane Westbrook was swirling into town, but in hopes he would be 100 percent healthy for Monday’s Garden battle against the NBA’s leading MVP candidate. Through 16 games, there has been no soreness, no injury, no...

Joakim Noah may be getting healthier, but his game’s ailing

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Knicks starting center Joakim Noah said he is inching closer to 100 percent after battling the flu and is eager to play crunch-time minutes.

Knicks crank up road struggles with game-killing start and finish

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A despicable start and ice-cold finish against the injury-depleted Hornets prevented the Knicks’ groove from continuing Saturday.

Knicks’ Joakim Noah fine but rides pine when game’s on line

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Joakim Noah was back for the Knicks — well, at least for three quarters.

Carmelo Anthony’s clutch shot in final ticks gives Knicks OT win

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — What didn’t work in the fourth quarter, worked in overtime. And the Knicks got a victory because of it. Carmelo Anthony, who misfired on a turnaround against Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at the regulation buzzer, worked virtually the same play — but hit it this time with 3.1 seconds left in overtime, giving the Knicks a thrilling...

Brandon Jennings embracing the reinvention of his game

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Brandon Jennings signed a below-market, one-year, $5 million deal to rebuild his brand as one of the electric young experienced point guards in the league. In doing so, he has had to rebuild his game, too, going from scorer to playmaker. Jennings, who amassed a 55-point explosion just four seasons ago, has won over the...
