  1. Video: Kevin Durant hits the game-winning three to beat Lakers in Game 4

    May 20, 2012, 2:40 AM EDT

    Durant-game-4

    As Russell Westbrook led the charge offensively for the Thunder in their Game 4 win over the Lakers — finishing with a brilliant 37 points on 15-of-26 shooting — Kevin Durant seemed pleased to let that happen. But once the Thunder had made it all the way back from a deficit that hung at around…

  2. PBT Extra: Talking Knicks’ future, Jordan or Kobe, and sushi

    May 10, 2012, 8:38 PM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    When I opened up the doors looking for twitter questions for today’s PBT Extra, I knew that the Knicks were going to be the hot topic. So I discuss how I expect them to go after Steve Nash (which is iffy, both for fit and money issues) but not make many other big changes. We…

  3. Will twitter help drive J.R. Smith away from Knicks? No, but money might.

    Knicks' Smith shoots during their win over the Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    We need to start this out with three background facts: 1. J.R. Smith is active on twitter (@TheRealJRSmith). 2. J.R. Smith has a $2.5 million option with the Knicks for next year that everyone knew he would not take — he was going to become a free agent and see what the market would offer.…

  4. Stoudemire wants Nash to join him in New York. Shocking.

    May 10, 2012, 10:58 AM EDT

    Steve Nash Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire had 7 shots in Game 5 against the Heat Thursday when the Knicks were eliminated from the playoffs. Carmelo Anthony had 31. Heck, Mike Bibby had 7 shots. So is it really a surprise that Stoudemire loves the idea of Steve Nash coming to play for the Knicks? Stoudemire has his best seasons…

  5. Don’t look for Knicks to make many offseason moves, just big one

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Four

    Before the first jump ball tipped off the season on Christmas, this was the season everyone thought the Knicks would take a step forward. Maybe only to the second round of the playoffs, but they were going to be good. At least the third best team in the East. Instead, they had to fight their…

  6. Knicks return to iso ‘Melo, get knocked out of playoffs by Heat

    May 9, 2012, 10:51 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony is guarded by Miami Heat's James during the fourth quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round basketball playoff series in Miami

    This year was supposed to be different for New York, and it certainly was unlike any season you can remember — Linsanity, injuries, Mike D’Antoni out and Mike Woodson in, a return to ‘Melo ball not seen since Denver. But it ended like every Knicks playoff series since 2000 — without the team advancing past…

  7. USA Basketball wants to know if Aldridge is in or out

    May 9, 2012, 5:10 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Marcus  Camby

    LaMarcus Aldridge is on the list of players that USA Basketball is considering for the Olympics this summer — a big man with an outside shot is a valuable asset in the international game. Aldridge is also going to have surgery on his hip May 10. The short end of his recovery time from this…

  8. Can Knicks be more than one-and-done against Heat?

    May 9, 2012, 2:33 PM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates in the win over Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    The last two games, the Heat did not bring their “A” game, and they still won one game against the Knicks and lost the other by two points. Conventional wisdom says Miami comes home Wednesday night, crank up the defensive pressure again and just run away and hide from the Knicks. That could happen. But…

  9. Reiterating what we already knew, Lin out for Heat series

    May 8, 2012, 3:01 PM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    Yesterday, Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Jeremy Lin was very doubtful for Game 5 and it looked like some of the point guard duties for the Knicks would fall to Carmelo Anthony. And some to Mike Bibby. So of course, Woodson had to be asked about it again on Tuesday, and this time he tried…

As we have discussed before, what has been officially discussed and what has been actually discussed via second and third parties to smooth the way…

    May 7, 2012, 12:06 PM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    With Baron Davis out, “Jeremy Lin Watch 2012” is on in full force for the Knicks as they head into Game 5 in Miami Wednesday. Lin has been working out, but when coach Mike Woodson spoke with reporters Monday it didn’t sound like Lin would play, but since his other option is Bibby Woodson was…

  12. Knicks get measure of redemption, knock off Heat in Game 5

    May 6, 2012, 8:08 PM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    It doesn’t change the big picture – the Heat are still going to win this series and there are still questions about the construction and future of the Knicks. But for a day the Knicks got a measure of redemption — the Knicks made the big plays late, Carmelo Anthony outplayed LeBron James, the Knicks…

    Heat's James drives past  Knicks' Anthony in Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    The theory going into this series was that the Knicks would win a game or two simply because Carmelo Anthony and maybe J.R. Smith or Steve Novak would just get hot. But the Heat’s defense this series has doused any spark before it could catch fire. The result is the Heat have cruised to a…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Knicks compete early, but Heat roll late to take 3-0 series lead

    May 3, 2012, 11:10 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James

    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…

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    As we reported was coming, the Knicks Tyson Chandler is your defensive player of the year. The league made it official Wednesday afternoon.

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Amare Stoudemire is out, having lost his fight with a fire extinguisher in Miami. Which has a number of Knicks faithful saying it is a blessing in disguise — Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony were not working well together. The Knicks played some of their best ball this season with a small-ball lineup where Anthony was…

The waters are getting a little shallow with injuries to Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, LaMarcus Aldridge and Dwight…

    The good news out of Amare Stoudemire’s meeting with a hand specialist in New York was there was no ligament or nerve damage.

    Carmelo Anthony played better, dropping 30 in Game 2. Tyson Chandler was back to being himself after having the flu and was far more aggressive at both ends. He had a real impact on the game. It didn’t matter. The Miami Heat led most of the game, took charge when LeBron James went on a…
