Knicks’ road woes reach new low in brutal late loss to Pistons

NY Post (Marc Berman) — DETROIT — Kristaps Porzingis made buckets this time — aplenty. But it wasn’t enough because the Knicks always find ways to lose away from the Garden. Friday night, they blew a four-point lead in the final 1:14 to ruin Porzingis’ bounce-back 29-point night and lose 104-101 to the Pistons at Little Caesars Arena. Before the...

Kristaps Porzingis had one of his worst games as a pro

NY Post (Alex Squadron) — It was just one of those nights. In his return from a two-game absence, Kristaps Porzingis shot 0-for-11 (0-for-3 from beyond the arc) and registered just one point in 23 minutes of action Thursday in the Knicks’ 102-93 victory over the Celtics.

Frank Ntilikina contained Kyrie Irving when it mattered most

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina got his first experience facing Kyrie Irving, and it went better than he could have hoped. Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek stuck with Ntilikina in the fourth quarter Thursday night against the Celtics, and the rookie made the West Orange, N.J., great work hard. Ntilikina also hit two giant 3-pointers...

‘Cuts and stuff’ can’t stop Enes Kanter

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Knicks center Enes Kanter had another opponent fall on him, injuring his neck. Plus, Kanter’s lower lip looked like he had gone a couple of rounds with Rocky Balboa. So naturally, he turned in a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds Thursday in the Knicks’ 102-93 victory over the Celtics at the Garden. First,...

Knicks show grit they’ll need to maintain for this tough stretch

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Consider the obstacles for the Knicks. The opponents were the Boston Celtics, owners of the best record in the Eastern Conference. Yes, for one night Thursday the Celtics had a simply awful second unit and played on the second half of a back-to-back. But still, the best record in the East means something. The Knicks’...

Brad Stevens not surprised by the Knicks’ improvement

NY Post (Alex Squadron) — It didn’t exactly begin well for the 2017-18 Knicks. They opened the season 0-3, capped off by an ugly, uninspiring 110-89 blowout loss in Boston. But those days are long gone. After a few tweaks, mainly inserting point guard Jarrett Jack into the starting lineup, the Knicks bounced back, and after getting revenge on the...

Michael Beasley explodes for 32 as Knicks stun Celtics

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The festive Garden crowd chanted “M-V-P’’ when the Knicks’ gangly power forward stepped to the free-throw line during his second-half rampage. The serenade, however, was for Michael Beasley — not the 0-for-11 shooting Kristaps Porzingis. Up was down and down was up Thursday at the Garden. Beasley continued his stunning rampage, coming off the bench...

Rethinking the draft that Carmelo hated and the Knicks aced

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The night of the 2015 draft wasn’t one Carmelo Anthony remembers fondly. The ex-Knicks star was disappointed his wingman Tim Hardaway Jr. got traded for the draft rights to Jerian Grant. The combination of that trade, along with the Knicks drafting a reported project in Kristaps Porzingis, didn’t sit well with Anthony. He felt the...

How a ‘sleeping’ Carmelo Anthony stuck it to Phil Jackson

NY Post (Mark W. Sanchez) — To Carmelo Anthony, he was the Zzzzzen Master. During last season, the final, miserable one of the Anthony and Phil Jackson eras in New York, Anthony would either fall asleep or pantomime sleeping during mediation sessions that Jackson presided over, according to an ESPN exploration of the drama of the 31-51 disaster, after which Jackson was...

What counts as progress during Tim Hardaway Jr.’s injury rehab

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Tim Hardaway Jr. will be an expensive cheerleader for the 10th straight game Thursday night, but his status seems to at least be trending in the right direction. On Tuesday, the Knicks announced Hardaway, out since Nov. 29 with a vaguely-described stress injury to his lower left leg, will increase his rehab and courtwork and...

Porzingis wants to help Knicks measure up against East’s best

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — This is one game Kristaps Porzingis desperately doesn’t want to miss — not after the way he performed the first time the Knicks faced the Celtics. The opportunity to defeat the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference at home on national television is one he is relishing. And, fortunately for the Knicks,...

Enes Kanter scoffs at possibility of Turkish prison

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — The threat of prison hasn’t scared off Enes Kanter. News out of Turkey’s state-run news agency that prosecutors are seeking over four years in jail for the Knicks center because of insults against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan won’t make Kanter think twice about speaking his mind. “I’m just trying to be the voice of all...
