NY Post (Marc Berman) — Raptors coach Dwane Casey claimed concern about this Garden Sunday matinee, telling his team beforehand: “This is a trap game, looking at their record.

Emmanuel Mudiay trying not to think too much on court

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The mind is a terrible thing to use. At least over instinct at times.

Knicks have no answers for Giannis Antetokounmpo

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MILWAUKEE — The Knicks will never have to see Bradley Center again, but will have to deal with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and, perhaps, Jabari Parker for many more years. Though the Knicks hung with the Bucks for the first three quarters, “The Greek Freak’’ was too much of a force to withstand. Antetokounmpo poured...

Knicks coach to NBA: Leave us alone, we’re not tanking

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MILWAUKEE — Jeff Hornacek said NBA commissioner Adam Silver has no reason to worry about the Knicks.

How ex-Knicks star went from selling crack to The Franchise

Two Knicks starters have their coach’s back

How Knicks responded to young two-guard debut gone bad

NY Post (Marc Berman) — PORTLAND – Emmanuel Mudiay took to the weight room. Rookie Frank Ntilikina took to philosophy. This was late Tuesday in the Moda Center locker room after the French-speaking backcourt mates finished their first start together as Knicks — a 111-87 shredding to the Blazers.
