  1. NBA Playoffs: The Knicks get swept

    Apr 24, 2011, 7:49 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Paul Pierce

    It looked like the Knicks were going to give the Celtics a run for their money after the first and second games of the series were so close, but the Knicks didn’t have the same energy in New York that they did in Boston, and the Celtics were able to sweep the Knicks out of…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Knicks take one more swing at Celtics

    Apr 24, 2011, 1:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Let’s start with the injury report: No Chauncey Billups and maybe no Amar’e Stoudemire for the New York Knicks. No Shaquille O’Neal for Boston, but that has not mattered. New York always had just a puncher’s chance in this series — they were less talented but if Stoudemire could take over one game, if Anthony…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Celtics rout Knicks, take 3-0 series lead

    Apr 22, 2011, 10:43 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    This is why the Celtics are the conference champs until somebody beats them. Sure, the team hasn’t looked quite right since it traded away Kendrick Perkins for Jeff Green, and their bench is still a complete mess. Yes, the Celtics gave up the No. 2 seed in the East by finishing their regular season in something of…

  4. NBA playoffs return to Manhattan, will New York like the show?

    Apr 22, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    Spike Lee

    The NBA playoffs return to the heart of New York, to Madison Square Garden Friday night after seven long years away and will be welcomed back like the prodigal son. Celebrities will ring the court — including Spike Lee in some all-orange disaster of an outfit — and profanity-laced chants will rain down on the…

  5. NBA Playoffs: OKC takes Game 2 as Denver’s depth disappears

    Apr 21, 2011, 2:14 AM EDT

    Al Harrington, J.R. Smith, Nene

    Game 1 of the series between the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder stood out as a highly entertaining contest in an opening weekend full of highly entertaining contests, but the reprise in Game 2 couldn’t quite measure up as a competitive spectacle. Blame the Thunder; OKC used a dominant first quarter as a catalyst…

  6. Knicks need to execute late or Celtics will be executioner

    Apr 20, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Anthony and head coach D'Antoni react in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    The Knicks are not dead in their series against the Celtics. But when they take the floor Friday night in a shaking-the-building loud Madison Square Garden, there will be a guy standing in the corner wearing a full length black hooded robe, with a boney hand holding a sickle. He’s waiting for just one more…

  7. Knicks Stoudemire says he will be ready to go in Game 3

    Apr 20, 2011, 12:29 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Kids, let this be a lesson to you — showoff dunks in warm-ups only leads to trouble. Amar’e Stoudemire hurt his back doing dunks in warm-ups. He tried to go despite the back spasms, but put up four points on 9 shots in 16 minutes and left the game never to return. Stoudemire tells the…

  8. NBA Playoffs: Celtics overcome Carmelo’s 42, take 2-0 lead

    Apr 19, 2011, 10:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Two

    The Knicks have certainly made the first games of their series with the Boston Celtics interesting. In Game 1, the Knicks were able to take the Celtics to the wire thanks to the stellar offensive play of Amar’e Stoudemire. In Game 2, back spasms limited Stoudemire to four points in only 16 minutes of play,…

  9. “Go New York Go” 2011 vs. 1994

    Apr 19, 2011, 2:10 PM EDT

    NBA CHAMPIONSHIPS

    We bring a brief musical interlude to your day. Somehow, “Go New York Go” has become sort of a Knicks anthem despite being pretty much a musical marshmallow. As opposed to Los Angeles, which uses the very sarcastic Randy Newman “I Love L.A.” as a theme song (for the record, nobody loves Victory Boulevard), but…

  10. NBA Playoffs: The Celtics survive the Knicks

    Apr 17, 2011, 10:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Well, it’s been an interesting first round so far, hasn’t it? The Knicks were the latest underdog to give the home team a lot more than it bargained for in the series opener, and they were probably one shot away from stealing a game in Boston on Sunday. Unfortunately for them, poor late-game execution cost…

  11. Video: Carmelo Anthony’s game winner over Danny Granger

    Apr 11, 2011, 9:29 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Did the Knicks want the play Miami more than Boston in the first round? If so, this shot pretty much ruined. New York’s win and Boston’s loss means these two are almost certainly on a collision course, and Boston’s size will be a big challenge for the Knicks. But that doesn’t make this shot any…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Start thinking Knicks vs. Celtics in the first round

    Apr 11, 2011, 1:57 AM EDT

    Danny Granger, Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while avoiding the torpedo of truth…. The Miami Heat proving they can beat Boston (at least once) and the Bulls slipping past the Magic were our Games of the Day. Knicks 110, Pacers 109: Carmelo Anthony! Hold on, we’ll get back to him in a minute. Plenty of fans (and you can…

  13. Knicks go without Stoudemire, Billups returns Friday night

    Apr 8, 2011, 12:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    It’s a lot like going to a Broadway show and finding out all the understudies will be on stage that night. There’s not going to be a lot of star power in New Jersey tonight. Amar’e Stoudemire will sit out for the Knicks, according to a tweet from Steve Adamek of the Bergin Record. Stoudemire…

  14. Mike D’Antoni lets his frustration with Knicks play slip

    Apr 6, 2011, 10:13 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Because Mike D’Antoni likes coaching the New York Knicks, he doesn’t say bad things to the media about his boss, owner James Dolan. It was Dolan who pushed the Carmelo Anthony into the form it finally took in the end, he wanted the deal and was willing to give up players. Team president Donnie Walsh…

  15. Knicks should be wary of giving the reins to Melo over Amar’e

    Apr 3, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v New York Knicks

    Amar’e Stoudemire was given a “mental break” this week by Mike D’Antoni. Moving aside the fact that Amar’e seems to miss a lot of practices this year for non-injury reasons, there are some interesting dynamics on the Knicks being reported by the New York Daily News: “Looks like Amare is in a funk,” said one…

  16. Carmelo Anthony in drag on SNL. Kind of.

    Apr 3, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    When Melo moved to New York, one of the reasons was for things like this. He wanted everything that comes with the bright lights and big city. The parties, the endorsements, and things like appearing on Saturday Night Live. Melo made a guest shot Saturday night on the famous sketch comedy show, appearing as a……

  17. The Knicks had a Melo back-up plan: Deron Williams

    Apr 2, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Waaaay at the bottom of a Yahoo! Sports report on Greg Oden (still injured!) and his mental state (still depressed!) and his future with the Blazers (still going to get another contract, somehow!) was a quiet little item: The Utah Jazz had a possible deal in place to send guard Deron Williams to the New…

  18. Isiah Thomas doesn’t deny he helped get ‘Melo to New York

    Mar 31, 2011, 2:19 AM EDT

    It’s never easy to tell reality with Isiah Thomas. With him, the truth is messy and convoluted. You want to make it simple — “he was a terrible GM” — but reality is more complex (he made some very good draft picks and showed an eye for spotting talent out of college). So it is…

  19. Video: Vintage Carmelo Anthony night gets Knicks win

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:02 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    That was vintage Carmelo Anthony Monday night. His team needed a win and he put up 39 points hitting shots with a man in his face all night. He controlled the offense and the game in the second half. Watch the video. The flip side is he shot a pedestrian 46.1 percent, he took the…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Ugly or not, Knicks and Pacers will take wins

    Mar 29, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while you were stealing a 600-pound bronze moose statue… Knicks 113, Magic 106 (OT): The Kicks were desperate for a win. The Magic were without Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick which meant heavy doses of Gilbert Arenas (who was 1-of-7 from three). Dwight Howard fouled out. That meant a streak breaking win…

  21. Other key Knicks shooting worse since ‘Melo’s arrival

    Mar 28, 2011, 10:07 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Dallas Mavericks

    Since Carmelo Anthony arrived with the Knicks, their offense overall has gotten nominally better. They had averaged 109.8 points per 100 possessions, now that is up to 110.4. But they haven’t looked good doing it. (And the slightly better offense doesn’t make up for the much worse defense, especially in the fourth quarter. Which is…

  22. Hornets’ David West out for the season with torn ACL

    Mar 25, 2011, 5:22 PM EDT

    david-west-torn-acl

    The Hornets’ David West went down in a heap Thursday night, with what the team officially described as “left knee trauma” at the time. Further tests on Friday revealed the injury to be a torn ACL (according to multiple reports) which will rule West out for the remainder of this season. While the team might…

  23. Knicks’ tired legs leading to fourth-quarter collapses

    Mar 24, 2011, 9:52 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    It happened again Wednesday night — the Knicks had seized a lead with a 15-6 run just before halftime then solidified it with a 7-0 spurt early in the third quarter. They had a shot at a big win over Orlando. Then it fell apart, as it has so often lately for the Knicks. The Magic were…

  24. Jerry West says it’s too early to judge ‘Melo trade

    Mar 24, 2011, 3:16 PM EDT

    Image (1) jWest-thumb-250x166-18358.jpg for post 3706

    Jerry West is trying to talk some sense into New Yorkers. Good luck with that. The Logo spoke with the Associated Press and said what Knicks management and everyone on that end of the Carmelo Anthony trade has said — this is going to take time. To expect immediate results was a mistake, the trade…

  25. Former Nuggets staffer acknowledges trade rumors hurt play

    Mar 24, 2011, 1:35 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    It was pretty clear by the end that impacts of the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors had bled onto the court for the Denver Nuggets. They were not the same team that started the season, the one that seemed to have potential. Dean Oliver was a former front office guy and staticiscian for Denver who last…
