New York Knicks: Out Of Town Articles

Why this early homestand is a potential cliff for Nets’ season

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — The Nets have lost three straight, the last to a sorry Knicks team without All-Star Kristaps Porzingis, minus lottery pick Kevin Knox and with noted Nets-killer Enes Kanter coming off the bench. If the Nets (2-5) don’t want to see that skid hit four, five or even six, they’ll need to make sure they’re not...

Nets can’t figure out how this crusher happened

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — From Spencer Dinwiddie calling the Nets the city’s best team to D’Angelo Russell saying the Knicks are a team they’re supposed to beat, clearly the Nets came into the Garden thinking Monday was a game they should win. But it was the Nets that took the beating in this one. Again. The Nets got thrashed...

Caris LeVert looking like real deal

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — In the Nets’ season-opening loss in Detroit, Caris LeVert saw a career night end with a turnover on the pivotal last-minute play. When he got another chance in Friday’s home opener, he capped another career-night with the game-winner. The Nets came from behind to pull out a 107-105 win over the Knicks before a sellout...

Allen Crabbe ready to grant Nets’ wish for more 3-point attempts

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — Kenny Atkinson said he wished the Nets would have attempted at least 13 more 3s in their season-opening loss to the Pistons on Wednesday night in Detroit. Allen Crabbe will happily help fill that void. The shooting guard is likely to make his season debut Friday against the Knicks after missing time with a left...

Nets training camp mystery making case for more minutes

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — Rodions Kurucs had waited so long for his first put-back dunk he may have gotten a bit carried away Friday night, hanging on to the rim a little extra before slapping the backboard in the Nets’ preseason finale against the Knicks at the Garden. “I just was hyped up,” Kurucs said with a grin Sunday...

Reinforcements could be coming just in time for Nets

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — The Nets were without three starters — Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson — in Friday’s preseason finale victory over the Knicks. But it sounds like they could get at least two, and possibly all three, back for the regular-season opener Wednesday at Detroit. Carroll and Hollis-Jefferson seem on pace to be ready to...

Nets guard backs up his big talk in solid win over Knicks

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Maybe Spencer Dinwiddie was right. After the point guard insisted his Nets were better than the Knicks, and reiterated that claim this week, Brooklyn closed out the preseason with an authoritative 113-107 win over its rivals at the Garden on Friday. Preseason results don’t count in the standings, but the performance — in which the...

Sweet-shooting Net knows he can’t be one-dimensional player

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Treveon Graham’s short track record says he will hit 3-pointers, and Nets coach Kenny Atkinson says the same. But when that shot isn’t falling, Graham has to find other ways to contribute. That’s what he did in the preseason opener against the Knicks. A Nets team in need of outside shooting gladly scooped up Graham,...

Jarrett Allen’s glaring weakness a big problem for Nets coach

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Jarrett Allen got totally dominated by the Knicks’ Enes Kanter in the Nets’ preseason opener, much the same way he was by bigger, brawnier centers last season. It’s a problem coach Kenny Atkinson — despite all his confidence in Allen — is going to have to figure out, for the sake of both the Nets...

Injuries preventing Nets from seeing how all their pieces fit

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — The Nets are convinced they’ve gotten deeper. Their conviction may be put to the test this preseason. Training camp is all about experimentation, testing and retesting to find the right lineups and rotations. But with Brooklyn missing five players for Wednesday’s preseason-opening home loss to the Knicks, that might easier said than done. Starting power...

Rodions Kurucs makes a strong first impression

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Rookie Rodions Kurucs’ NBA debut was one of the few bright spots in the Nets’ preseason-opening 107-102 loss to the Knicks at Barclays Center. And it felt like a long time coming for the young Latvian. Largely buried on Barcelona’s B team after initially declaring for the NBA draft then deciding to stay in Spain,...

Knicks expose the same problems that keep plaguing the Nets

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Nets coach Kenny Atkinson is going to use the preseason to experiment with lineups and rotations, to answer questions about his team. One game in, he’s not going to like some of the answers he got. The Nets lost 107-102 to the Knicks in their preseason opener, beaten at home at Barclays Center. And after...

Former Knicks coach will be with the Nets during camp

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Former Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek, who is close with coach Kenny Atkinson, will be with the Nets through camp and will “probably come from time to time” through the season. But he hasn’t been added in any official capacity. “Yeah, [Hornacek’s] a good friend of mine,” Atkinson said. “You’ll see different guys come through here...

Nets’ schedule is out, and they better get their wins early

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — The NBA released its full 2018-19 schedule, and the Nets are going to pay for a soft middle of the slate with a brutal end to the season. The Nets tip off Oct. 17 in Detroit, and will play host to the rival Knicks two days later in their home opener at Barclays Center. A...

Rodions Kurucs wants to play with Porzingis and ‘beat his ass’

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Rodions Kurucs, the Nets’ second-round draft pick, said Friday he hopes to play alongside countryman Kristaps Porzingis on the Latvian national team, and plans to kick his butt when Brooklyn faces the Knicks. “I don’t know him that much. We spoke some time. I didn’t play with him [for Latvia] … I hope to play...
