Kristaps Porzingis is so good this is what a ‘slump’ looks like

NY Post (Marc Berman) — TORONTO – Jeff Hornacek found it amusing Kristaps Porzingis two-game stretch without 30 points is being classified as a slump. “Maybe we all got spoiled,’’ Hornacek said Friday after the morning shootaround at Air Canada Centre. “Not everyone’s going to go 14-for-23 every game. He was shooting lights out early on. Teams are starting to...

What Jeff Hornacek took from Knicks standing up to LeBron

And the Knicks coach is delighted the James-Ntilikina-Enes Kanter kerfuffle occurred, believing it bonded the team despite a loss Monday to the Cavaliers. “I thought it was great,’’ he said on the newest edition of “The Jeff Hornacek Experience”...

Knicks’ January schedule looking brutal

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Teams talk of winning now when building for the future, but for the Knicks, “now” may mean the rest of November and most of December. Beyond that is a potentially brutal landscape. From Dec. 27 to Feb. 2, the Knicks play 20 games, and only four of those are at home. They have an absurd...

How Ntilikina endeared himself to Knicks of present and past

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Maybe LeBron James would have picked Dennis Smith Jr. over Frank Ntilikina last June if he ran the Knicks. Still, the team that got Ntilikina is happy. They’re not alone. One guy who has been impressed so far is the greatest point guard in Knicks history, Hall of Famer Walt “Clyde” Frazier. Frazier, of course,...

Did Courtney Lee get hurt after celebrating Knicks’ winning shot?

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks look like they have survived a Courtney Lee scare. After Tim Hardaway Jr.’s game-sealing 3-pointer with 32 seconds left, Lee jumped on his back and soon after started limping. Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said Lee “tweaked’’ his hamstring and wasn’t sure of his status. Nevertheless, Lee said later his left hamstring was cramping...

Frank Ntilikina shows he’s no rookie on defense

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks had just gone up three points, 96-93, and the Jazz who were raining 3s all game seemed one shot away from a tie. A pass was launched toward the right corner with 2:45 left. The ball never found its mark, ending up in the real expensive seats instead. Frank Ntilikina’s arms and hands...

Donovan Mitchell’s MSG debut ‘a dream come true’

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Donovan Mitchell, the Jazz rookie guard who came to Utah from Westchester by way of Louisville, did something Wednesday he always wanted to do. He walked on the floor level at Madison Square Garden. For one half, the Knicks wished he hadn’t. “I was so nervous,” Mitchell said after he scored 19 points — but...

Knicks making basketball matter again in NYC

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — The people rose and they roared and they were in no hurry to rush to the exits, because these are the nights when Madison Square Garden really can feel like the city’s aorta.

Hardaway’s and Porzingis’ late heroics propel Knicks past Jazz

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Tim Hardaway Jr. is fast becoming the Knicks’ reliable second option to Kristaps Porzingis, and Wednesday he was the first.

The $71 million man grabbed a loose-ball...

Joakim Noah sits again and Knicks’ dilemma deepens

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Joakim Noah has gone from being banished by the NBA for taking a banned supplement to being banished by his own team.

Tim Hardaway Jr. proving he’s worth $71 million to Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks could’ve done worse with their cap space last July. If Phil Jackson were still around, he would have been spent it all on aging point guard George Hill to run the triangle. Instead, acting general manager Steve Mills, before his promotion to full-time president, gave it to Tim Hardaway Jr. — a four-year,...

Knicks are loving their offense without Phil Jackson

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LeBron James paid a backhanded compliment to Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek for his newfangled, high-speed offense that’s not the triangle. And Hornacek didn’t tip-toe around the issue any longer, that former president Phil Jackson’s methodical system offense has been completely scuttled, though scouts say they still run some triangle actions on post-ups. “We’re not running...
