    The Heat took command of their first round playoff series with the Knicks, winning Game 3 in New York 87-70 to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Matt Moore and I discussed. Matt Moore: Ugly, ugly, grotesque basketball Thursday and it looked like the Knicks could do the improbable without Amar’e Stoudemire, relying…

  2. Teams bounce back from playoff blowouts, but can Knicks?

    Apr 30, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    NBA playoff history is filled with teams who got blown out one game who bounced back the next game and won. Games and series can take dramatic swings. But after watching Game 1, when the Heat rolled the Knicks behind a big game from LeBron James, you have to wonder if the Knicks can do…

  3. It is no longer ‘inconceivable’ that Jeremy Lin could play in the first round

    Apr 29, 2012, 12:04 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    The New York Times reports Saturday that Knicks guard Jeremy Lin began one-on-one drills before the Knicks’ demolition loss to the Heat in Game 1.

  4. Heat 100 Knicks 67: Heat drown Knicks in their own tears

    Apr 28, 2012, 9:22 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    That got ugly fast, and then Iman Shumpert went down. So it was essentially the worst day for the Knicks. It could have been worse, but it would have taken some dark magic. The Heat destroyed the Knicks 100-67, outscoring them 57-29 in the second and third quarters. It was total annihilation. After Tyson Chandler…

  6. Mike Woodson talks about starting Mike Bibby in the playoffs

    Apr 19, 2012, 4:06 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Mike Bibby, Carmelo Anthony

    From the NY Post’s Marc Berman: Don’t be shocked if [Mike Bibby] winds up starting playoff games, with all of Baron’s injuries. Woodson got him 36 minutes in Newark, no limits like with Baron. 8 assists, 1 turnover. That’s what Woody cares about. Bibby has played in 100 career playoff games. That matters to Woody.…

    New York Knicks interim head coach Mike Woodson gives instructions to players during their NBA basketball game against the Portland Trail Blazers in New York

    The New York Knicks are going to have to get into the playoffs without Jeremy Lin, but once there they might get him back a little sooner than expected. While the official timetable has Lin returning in the second round, he is targeting the first round, reports the New York Post. He has surgery to…

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony comes down after stuffing ball against Toronto Raptors in NBA game in New York

    Just another day in New York with the Knicks. Jeremy Lin had surgery and was tweeting photos from the hospital.

Meanwhile reports surfaced suggesting the Knicks may have held off on announcing that Lin needed surgery…

  10. It’s not pretty, but Knicks solidify playoff standing with win

    Mar 26, 2012, 11:11 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    It looked like a game where both teams were battling for the right to be the eight seed — the winning team shot 35.1 percent and had 23 turnovers. Tom Thibodeau is not reviewing this tape and getting nervous. But a gritty win counts the same as any other kind and the Knicks outhustled the…

  11. Knicks’ Stoudemire out indefinitely with bulging disc in back

    Mar 26, 2012, 6:21 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    New York is going to have to make some if not all of its stretch run — which is really a fight just to make the playoffs — without Amare Stoudemire. Stoudemire is out indefinitely with a bulging disc in his back, the team announced Monday. Stoudemire injured it against the Pistons Saturday and it…

  12. Video: Jeremy Lin, Landry Fields explain their handshake

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Mike Woodson might be trying to kill off “Linsanity” but we’re not done with it yet… well, actually, we kind of are with the hype. Truth be told. We’re just not sure the coming Baron Davis era is really a great improvement. What we are still down with is the Jeremy Lin/Landry Fields pregame handshake.…

  13. Report: D’Antoni wanted to trade ‘Melo for Deron Williams

    Mar 14, 2012, 5:04 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    We know that now-former New York Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni and team owner James Dolan met Wednesday morning and came out of that meeting deciding to resign because of differences in how they saw the future of the organization. Those differences were major — D’Antoni wanted to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Nets for Deron…

  14. Report: Like Knicks fans, ‘Melo unhappy with D’Antoni

    Mar 13, 2012, 12:23 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jeremy Lin, Mike D'Antoni

    The scapegoats of the week in New York are Carmelo Anthony and Mike D’Antoni — clearly they are the reasons the Knicks have lost six in a row. And now, we bring you the next phase of the Knicks implosion — infighting and blaming the coach. From Marc Berman of the New York Post. There…

  15. D’Antoni says he is sticking with Lin as starter, usually closer

    Mar 5, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin, Baron Davis,  J.R Smith

    The buzz is out there — as “Linsanity” fades and reality comes into play, Baron Davis could steal the Knicks starting point guard spot from Jeremy Lin. That idea may have been bolstered Sunday when Rajon Rondo put up a triple-double on Lin, while Lin shot 1-for-7 in the overtime. It’s not happening yet, coach…

  16. Baron Davis says playing for Clippers almost killed his love of the game

    Mar 5, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Right now, the Los Angeles Clippers are the most entertaining team to watch in the NBA. They are athletic, fast paced, smart thanks to Chris Paul at the helm. They are learning to be contenders. There is a buzz around their games that is reminiscent of that other team in Staples Center — the building…

  17. Baron Davis could eventually replace Jeremy Lin as Knicks starting point guard

    Mar 3, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    As the media were allowed into Knicks practice on Friday, they saw something unexpected: Jeremy Lin and Baron Davis playing on the floor together, on the same team, with the rest of the starting unit during a scrimmage. It’s certainly an interesting idea, and one that would be even more interesting to see in a…

  19. Grading Dunk Contest dunks: Evans and Budinger get an A

    Feb 25, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    It was not a great contest, and worst of all it felt scripted, like the Kardashian “reality” shows. But I guess that’s where we’ve gotten to with the All-Star Dunk Contest. It’s style over substance. And only a couple dunks really impressed We’ve graded all 12 dunks from the contest (from A to F, like…

  20. Video: A Kia dunks over Blake Griffin

    Feb 25, 2012, 3:44 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    One year ago today (give or take), Blake Griffin won the NBA Dunk Contest jumping over the hood of a Kia while Baron Davis threw him the ally-oop out  of a sunroof. As part of a Kia commercial from Funny or Die, now a Kia tries to do a dunk over him. Griffin has a…

  22. Heat shut down Jeremy Lin, cruise to victory over Knicks

    Feb 23, 2012, 10:40 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Jeremy Lin

    By now you’ve certainly heard all about Jeremy Lin, and the way he’s led the Knicks to an improbable stretch of nine wins in the team’s last 11 games. The Miami Heat, too, were obviously paying attention, and made sure that Lin wouldn’t be a factor when the teams met on Thursday. Miami’s defense forced…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lin, ‘Melo play together well

    Feb 23, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    What you missed while stacking 2.5 feet of pancakes… Warriors 106, Suns 104: We have other details, but you really should just click this link to see Monta Ellis’ game winning shot. Knicks 99, Hawks 82: It was just a second game with everyone healthy on the Knicks, but you could see an improved chemistry.…

  24. It’s official: Shumpert out, Utah’s Evans in for Dunk Contest

    Feb 22, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    UPDATE 12:31 pm: The league has announced this as official — Iman Shumpert has pulled out of the All-Star Weekend dunk contest and Jeremy Evans is in. While Knicks fans are going to be bummed, the contest itself is not going to suffer — Evans is a great dunker. This should be fun (you can…

  25. Jeremy Lin who? Deron Williams dominates Knicks in Net wins

    Feb 21, 2012, 1:33 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Jeremy Lin

    “Linsanity” started when Jeremy Lin came in off the bench against the New Jersey Nets, dropped 25 points on Deron Williams and his team, and started to change the Knicks season around. Williams was frustrated. A couple days later, Williams was being peppered with questions about Lin, at one point said “What phenomenon?” then cut…
