Rookie grateful for mentorship of these two former Knicks

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. Trier, a Seattle native, would be just as flattered if he were compared to a former Clippers Sixth Man of the Year, Jamal Crawford. Trier has befriended two fellow Seattle products and accomplished ex-Knicks...

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. The Knicks and Nets will scrap Friday at Barclays Center in the season’s second game for both clubs. The teams split two preseason games against each other.

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. It sure seemed like a good fit on opening night for the 23-year-old forward. Taking advantage of extra playing time after...

Knicks display an energy that gives fan base a lift for one night

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Look, there is nothing wrong with savoring what you saw Wednesday night. There is nothing wrong with admitting you got a little caught up in the frenetic pace the Knicks employed, and the fact that for the first time since Prohibition there were basketball players wearing Knicks uniforms who actually looked interested in defense. There...

Enjoy it for now: Knicks blow out lowly Hawks in regular-season opener

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — A fan hit a shot before the Knicks did. That’s how bad it started Wednesday in the season opener for the home team, which missed its first nine field goals and watched as spectator George Holmes from Northport celebrated his halfcourt heave for $10,000. But New York’s struggles ended at that moment...

Knicks put on a show and open season with Hawks destruction

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Don’t get used to it, but David Fizdale’s youthful Knicks created fireworks and history on opening night. Scoring a franchise-record 49 points in the second quarter and with Tim Hardaway Jr. adjusting superbly to his No. 1 option role, the Knicks captured their season opener with a 126-107 pounding of the even-younger Hawks. The Garden...

Knicks boss denies contract rift with Kristaps Porzingis

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks president Steve Mills said he has no evidence of Kristaps Porzingis being unhappy that he didn’t get his rookie $158 million contract extension at Monday’s deadline. It was a foregone conclusion for months the Knicks would wait until he became a restricted free agent. Had they extended Porzingis, the club would have had little...

Frank Ntilikina’s season-opening start is major Fizdale statement

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It took former Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek into March before he gave Frank Ntilikina his first NBA start. New coach David Fizdale didn’t waste any time — even if it meant making the gutsy decision to sit this year’s prized lottery pick, Kevin Knox, for Wednesday’s season opener against the Hawks at the Garden. Whatever...

Bondy: David Fizdale ready for season void of winning expectations as Knicks rebuild continues

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — David Fizdale had never, with a decade of experience as a head coach or an assistant, entered a season without the expectation of winning. Until he joined the Knicks. Now, as Fizdale explained ahead of his New York coaching debut Wednesday against the Hawks, he’s reaching for a lower bar. “The...

Opener special for Fizdale, even with Knicks’ sad-sack hopes

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — David Fizdale took comfort in the familiar most of the day Wednesday. Coaches are like that. Routines are sacraments to them. He led the Knicks through their shootaround — just another game day, 1 of 82 — and he drove to Madison Square Garden, and he studied film and he thought, a lot, about the...
