Knicks’ youth shines in wild and failed comeback attempt

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Cheerio, Knicks. Before they leave for London, the Knicks continued to decay, but at least they showed more fight than usual in the second half of their Sunday matinee against the 76ers, with major boosts from Kevin Knox and Luke Kornet. While it seemed the Knicks were absorbing their usual beating against the Sixers, David...

Knicks latest loss a microcosm of miserable NY sports status

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — It’s a sad day in New York sports when an ‘E-A-G-L-E-S’ chant gains traction in Madison Square Garden. But that happened twice Sunday as the Knicks were predictably defeated by the Sixers, 108-105, losing for the 17th time in their last 19 games to keep pace with the Bulls for the second-worst...

Kyrie Irving’s frustration could be a Knicks window opening

NY Post (Marc Berman) — In October, Kyrie Irving announced he would be recommitting with the Celtics when he becomes a free agent July 1. Of course, a million things could happen between now and then — and may have. Irving already put the Knicks as his runner-up to the Celtics when he visited the Garden in late October. In...

Shaq: Why star free agents should sign with Knicks

NY Daily News (Mark Fischer) — When the time comes to court free agents, the Knicks ought to reserve Shaq an accommodating seat alongside David Fizdale. (Except when it’s Kevin Durant’s turn — he and the big man share some beef ). "I never understood why top-name players wouldn't want to come here," O'Neal recently told TMZ of...

David Fizdale’s Knicks concern is only getting worse

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — It’s not just the perimeter defense that concerns David Fizdale. It’s not the transition defense or the post defense or the perimeter defense. Not even the weak-side defense. “All of it,” the Knicks coach said. His frustration with that end of the floor is understandable. The Knicks have allowed at least 109 points in a...

Knicks get good Frank Ntilikina news but one rookie still out

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Frank Ntilikina’s sprained left ankle is trending in the right direction. After missing the past three games, the French point guard may be active Sunday against the 76ers at the Garden after taking part in Saturday’s practice. “There’s a chance,” Knicks coach David Fizdale said. “He played some two-on-two, some three-on-three. He’s cutting. He’s moving....

Knicks pounded by Pacers in their return to MSG

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — The Knicks returned home — and everything was as they had left it. Coming back from a six-game, 13-day road trip, the Knicks started the second half of the season by making the top draft pick look like the team’s top priority, suffering their seventh straight home loss, 121-106, to the Pacers on Friday night...

Knicks pounded by Pacers but are still preaching progress as the tanking continues

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — The Knicks have lost 16 of 18 and are falling off a cliff, but David Fizdale is selling progress. We’d hate to see what regression looks like for the Knicks (10-32), who forgot to play defense Friday night and were blown out by the Pacers, 121-106. “Individually, I think guys are getting better....

Fizdale couldn’t bear to watch Porzingis’ impressive workout

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Kristaps Porzingis’ return date remains uncertain. That won’t change for some time. He is scheduled to be evaluated again in mid-February. His return from a torn ACL wouldn’t come before then. It may not even come until next season. When David Fizdale watched his star’s individual workout Friday, the coach had to remind himself of...

Kristaps Porzingis unlikely to travel to London with Knicks as David Fizdale continues to wait for his star

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — When the NBA and the Knicks agreed to play in Europe this season, Kristaps Porzingis was no doubt a big reason why. But the Latvian ‘Unicorn’ is not only unavailable to play in London on Jan. 17 against the Wizards, he’s unlikely to travel for the five-day trip while rehabbing from ACL surgery,...

Officially, the Knicks said the 26-year-old center was out with an illness. He returned to find fake burgers placed in his locker at the Knicks’ practice facility on Friday, according to a...

Knicks' Enes Kanter missed practice because he ate too many cheeseburgers and got sick

NY Daily News (Daily News Sports Staff) — Enes Kanter did not participate in Knicks practice on Thursday. Apparently this is because on Wednesday night he ate seven cheeseburgers, with a generous helping of fries, to get the most out of his weekly cheat day and made himself sick enough to call out of work the next day. Kanter posted a...

Frank Ntilikina doesn’t think he’s quite ready to return

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — Frank Ntilikina was one of the last players on the court Thursday at Knicks practice, and appeared to be running and cutting with ease as he moved through drills. But the second-year guard may still need a few more days before he returns to game action after spraining his left ankle last Friday in Los...

The perfect storm making Knicks an option for bettors

NY Post (VSiN) — After a brutal road trip that spanned two weeks, and included a West Coast swing, the Knicks return home for the first time since a loss to Milwaukee on Christmas Day. The dreaded first-game-home angle looms for New York. After a long road trip, a team is usually in a play-against spot, but this meeting...
