Post Game Thoughts
Bad news: Steve Novak’s back is acting up, and he’s doubtful for Game 6. Good news: Chris Copeland is around, and gives the Knicks comparable three-point shooting, greater ability to score near the basket, and superior rebounding.
When even Felton’s 60-footers fall, it is a good night for the Knicks.
Just got this in my inbox. If you are inclined to donate to a charity, and love the Knicks, this seems perfect. See text below: The New York Knicks have donated tickets in the West Balcony and provided VIP on-court access during a pre-game warm up and shoot-around to support… Read More →
I sure don’t envy the decision-makers for the New York Knicks. The trade deadline is Thursday, 3 p.m. By then, the Knicks need to figure out: 1.

Going into this Knicks’ season, very little was understood as a constant. Would point guard play improve with Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni? Would the Knicks cobble together reasonable production from shooting guard between J.R. Smith, Ronnie Brewer and Iman Shumpert? Is Carmelo Anthony a 3? A 4?... Read More →
Briefly, some takeaways from last night’s 98-90 loss: 1. This is a game the Knicks win if Steve Novak and Carmelo Anthony have even average shooting nights. Instead, Novak shot 2-for-10, Anthony 7-for-23. The flip side of this, however, is without Amar’e Stoudemire and J.R. Smith, it really is an… Read More →
Well, that was exciting. It didn’t matter. It didn’t bear much resemblance to the way the Knicks will ultimately deploy their team in the regular season- John Shurna and Steve Novak were on the court at the same time! But the actual Knicks played actual basketball. And lord, how I… Read More →
