  1. Carmelo Anthony returns to Knicks lineup Monday vs. Nets

    Feb 20, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Knicks forward Anthony reacts to the Bulls missing a free throw attempt in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    If you’re going to ease Carmelo Anthony back into the new-look Knicks, this is the best way to do it — against the worst defense in the league. Carmelo Anthony will be back with the Knicks in the starting lineup Monday against the Nets, the team announced. He will start (Iman Shumpert will come off…

  2. In Stephen Jackson’s world he gets traded to the Nets

    Feb 20, 2012, 11:02 AM EDT

    Stephen Jackson

    Stephen Jackson is living in his own little world right now. Jackson and old-school coach Scott Skiles have not meshed, nor has Jackson in the Bucks system. The result has been reduced minutes — eight on Sunday — and lots of Stephen Jackson trade speculation. Jackson basically said on Sunday his ideal situation in his…

  3. Melo out vs. Mavericks, Smith and Davis are active

    Feb 19, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    Knicks forward Anthony reacts to the Bulls missing a free throw attempt in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    We’ll have to wait for another day to see the Knicks at full strength. The Knicks announced Sunday morning that Carmelo Anthony is out vs. the Mavericks as he continues to recover from injury. But there is some good news, from the Knicks’ official Twitter:   D’Antoni says @carmeloanthony is out, might play tomorrow. Shump…

  4. Winderman: LeBron says NBA becoming point guards’ league

    Feb 16, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    derrick Rose LeBron James

    So what does LeBron James want? By now we’ve learned that simply is a matter of interpretation, other than he doesn’t want to be blamed for your kids’ cartoons not being on or the store being out of milk (from that memorable postgame session in Orlando a week ago). Then, Thursday, there were the seemingly…

  5. Perfect storm continues for Jeremy Lin, Knicks cruise to win

    Feb 15, 2012, 11:02 PM EDT

    Knicks' Lin walks up-court during game against Kings in New York's Madison Square Garden

    Linsanity is now 7-0. For the sensation that is Jeremy Lin to be unleashed — from the wins to the mania that gripped New York and spilled over into popular culture — it takes more than just the fantastic play of Lin. Although that is certainly the catalyst. But it takes a perfect storm of…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs advancing, Heat still on top

    Feb 13, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    I’m beginning to wonder: Will the Eastern Conference Finals be the real NBA finals this year? Feels that way some days. 1. Heat (21-7, last week ranked 1) The Magic and Knicks combined to shoot 85 threes against the Heat in two nights. The Heat’s defensive energy does that to teams, makes them settle (although…

  7. Tuesday And-1 links: Want to watch Gilbert Arenas workout?

    Feb 7, 2012, 11:14 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Gilbert Arenas is going to conduct an open workout in Los Angeles this week so teams can come and decide for themselves if he’s got…

  8. Knicks’ Davis has setback, not expected until All-Star break at best

    Feb 6, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, Corey Maggette

    Baron Davis is no exactly a guy who has been battling injuries for years (and doesn’t have the best reputation on rehab efforts). Now he’s dealing with a bulging disc in his back, the kind of injury that can mean a slow recovery with setbacks in the best of situations. So, maybe we shouldn’t be…

  9. Another report that Mike D’Antoni’s job is safe. For now.

    Feb 6, 2012, 8:03 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Bennie Adams

    Knicks fans may think a change in coach is long past due, what with the 9-15 record in a season that held so much promise, but Knicks management continues to be patient. For once. Echoing other reports from inside the team over the past month, Newsday reports that Mike D’Antoni’s job is safe. For now.…

  10. Clippers will attempt to continue to stockpile talent by pursuing J.R. Smith

    Feb 5, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    The L.A. Clippers have had maybe the most impressive offseason of any team in the league. Already sitting in second place in the Western Conference standings, and with their latest acquisition, Kenyon Martin, joining the team in Orlando on Sunday, they will look to get even deeper by going after J.R. Smith, reports Brad Turner…

  11. Jeremy Lin came to play Saturday night, and for a night was the point guard the Knicks need

    Feb 5, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks tried Toney Douglas. They tried Iman Shumpert. They’re waiting on Baron Davis. But for a night, they got the dynamic, slashing, pick-and-roll point guard they’ve needed so badly. And the result was a win over the Nets behind Jeremy Lin‘s 25 points and 7 assists, not to mention stellar defense on Deron Williams.…

  12. Weekend Observations 2.4.12: Where corn don’t grow

    Feb 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.    1. Blake Griffin is not human. 2. Denver’s a really great team this season, they’re just not so impressive you know you can count on them in the WCF. The lack of star power is going to continue to be…

  13. Blake Griffin will not defend Dunk Contest crown

    Feb 3, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    What exactly was he going to do for an encore, anyway? Jump over a Zamboni? There will be a new NBA All-Star Dunk Contest champion because Blake Griffin is not going to defend the crown, he said Thursday. From ESPNLosAngeles.com. “As of right now I don’t plan on being in it,” Griffin said Thursday night.…

  14. Tyson Chandler thinks the Knicks could still win the title

    Feb 1, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Norris Cole

    I like to think that if Scarlett Johansson just hung out with me and got to know me — to really experience my sparkling personality and deep blue eyes — I’d have a real shot at her. Along those same lines, Tyson Chandler thinks if things break the right way, the New York Knicks could…

  15. Baron Davis’ back flares up, did not practice Wednesday

    Feb 1, 2012, 3:58 PM EDT

    baron davis

    Tuesday night, the Knicks didn’t look like they needed a savior. Carmelo Anthony was back, the Knicks were scoring the paint and knocking down threes, they looked like what everyone had kind of expected before the season. Which is good, because the other savior may be a while. Baron Davis sat out practice Wednesday, tweets…

  16. Today in “The Knicks really need a point guard” news: Douglas to replace Shumpert

    Jan 31, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Douglas_Toney

    From the New York Post’s Marc Berman: HOUSTON — The Iman Shumpert starting point guard experiment ended last night for the Knicks. Toney Douglas was promoted to starting point guard last night for rookie Shumpert, but then played so poorly he got benched for third-string Jeremy Lin for the final 20 minutes of the Knicks’…

  17. Baron Davis not playing, but he is selling a sitcom

    Jan 30, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, Corey Maggette

    The Cavalry will not come charging over the hill to save the Knicks on Tuesday, it appears. Both Carmelo Anthony and Baron Davis did not practice with the team Monday and appear out for Tuesday’s game against the Pistons, according to Howard Beck of the New York Times. Coach Mike D’Antoni called Anthony “doubtful” due…

  18. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot now Thunderstruck

    Jan 30, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kris Humphries

    The top three teams remain the same, just trading places, because they are the three best teams in the league right now. But all three also have long road trips coming up, which should test them. 1. Thunder (16-3, last week ranked No. 3). They are “only” fifth in point-per-possession differential in the league, but…

  19. May be another week or more before Davis joins Knicks

    Jan 30, 2012, 10:10 AM EDT

    baron davis

    The Knicks are impatient. Losing will do that to you, and the Knicks are 1-9 in their last 10. Knicks fans are building a Texas A&M sized bonfire under coach Mike D’Antoni’s seat. Everyone is waiting to see what Baron Davis brings. It’s unfair to have him thrust into the role of savior, but he…

  20. Report: D’Antoni’s job with Knicks safe. For now at least.

    Jan 28, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    Apparently the Knicks are not planning to end the Mike D’Antoni era any time soon. Then again, Flip Saunders got a direct vote of confidence from his owner just a couple weeks before the axe fell. But as of right now, there are no plans to make a move — but D’Antoni’s fate could rest…

  21. LeBron James says Knicks fans should be patient

    Jan 27, 2012, 1:46 PM EDT

    LeBron James Carmelo Anthony

    Just so we’re clear, LeBron James is preaching patience to New Yorkers. Good luck with that. The Knicks are struggling this season and now get to face the Heat Friday without Carmelo Anthony, who is taking the weekend off. In their first full season with ‘Melo, Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler there were high expectations.…

  22. Carmelo Anthony out Friday vs. Heat (and one more game)

    Jan 27, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony watches a free throws by Grizzlies during NBA game in Memphis

    Carmelo Anthony has clearly not been right the last couple games. He is 5-for-21 shooting, has looked sluggish and is battling a sore wrist and ankle. So he is going to take a couple of games off — Mike D’Antoni told the media at shootaround Friday that Anthony is out for a showdown with the…

    Miami Heats' LeBron James plays against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    We are a quarter of the way into the NBA season, which is far too early to start talking about end of the season awards, playoffs or much of anything else. I’m going to anyway. Here are the awards in a few categories as we reach the quarter pole. We’ve got a long back stretch…

  25. Baron Davis returns to practice, but can his ailing back bear New York’s wildest expectations?

    Jan 23, 2012, 4:38 PM EDT

    baron davis

    Abandon all expectations ye who enter here: alleged Knicks savior Baron Davis is officially playing basketball again. Davis underwent a full practice for the first time since signing with New York in December, and according to the Associated Press, the team hopes he’ll be available for his regular season debut at some point during the…
