NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Even before Kevin Knox fell to the Knicks and became the ninth overall pick, his coach at Kentucky, John Calipari, predicted several teams ultimately would regret passing on the youngest player in this year’s NBA draft.

Enes Kanter’s big game hurt by questionable flagrant foul

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Enes Kanter almost always has his way with the Nets’ smaller front line — he’s a menacing bull at Barclays Center.

D’Angelo Russell: We’re ‘supposed to beat’ the Knicks

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Spencer Dinwiddie, who boasted the Nets are better than the Knicks, nearly saw his mouth write a check his behind couldn’t cash.

David Fizdale puts focus on Knicks' up-tempo play, but watch for how rookie Kevin Knox keeps up

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — The Knicks are the youngest team in the NBA and plan to play that way. In other words, it’s speed, it’s transition baskets, it’s everything that should define youth. The Knicks took 99 shots on 112 possessions in the opener Wednesday, which are numbers they rarely, if ever, touched under Jeff Hornacek. ...

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach David Fizdale has compared 6-foot-5 rookie guard Allonzo Trier to Clippers reigning Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams.

Speedy youngsters have Knicks leading one ‘non-negotiable’ stat

NY Post (Marc Berman) — “The Fiz Kids” are No. 1 in the NBA in two things. They are the league’s youngest team with an average age of 24.1 and — at least after one game — the fastest. The Knicks may or may not win 30 games, but they are young, athletic and have a head coach in David...

The Knicks are thinking bigger than this Nets feud

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach David Fizdale said his team’s goal is more than being better than Brooklyn.

David Fizdale’s lineup twist worked perfectly

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Five takeaways from the Knicks’ season-opening 126-107 victory over the hapless Hawks — a game in which the club led by 28 points early in the third quarter. 1. David Fizdale’s decision to start Frank Ntilikina at the swing position paid off, and the coach didn’t care an iota about Ntilikina’s modest five-point, one-assist, 2-of-7 showing....

It was a mixed bag for the Knicks’ rookies

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — On opening night, the Knicks’ three rookies ran the gamut. There was the good (Allonzo Trier scoring 15 points), the bad (Kevin Knox making just 4-of-16 shots) and the unfortunate (Mitchell Robinson tweaking his ankle in just over a minute of action) in the Knicks’ 126-107 rout of the Hawks at the Garden on Wednesday...

Knicks get a double-double from this Noah

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Noah Vonleh looked at the roster, saw its youth, players with a similar story to his, heard coach David Fizdale’s mandate on the importance of development, and knew the Knicks were the right move.
