  1. Video: Knicks’ Kidd drains game-winning three to beat Nets

    Dec 11, 2012, 10:20 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    New York returned the favor to Brooklyn on Tuesday night with a dramatic win — Jason Kidd with what turned out to be the game-winning three. Was it legit? Jeff Van Gundy doesn’t think so and he has a point, Kidd kicked out his leg to get Jerry Stackhouse on the foul. It worked and…

  2. No Carmelo, no problem. Knicks expose napping Heat defense in rout

    Dec 7, 2012, 12:28 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Chandler celebrates a basket by his team against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    With New York, there is energy. There are guys willing to step up with Carmelo Anthony out. There is defense in the paint. There are guys making the extra pass and raining down threes. In Miami I expect Jimmy Carter to come out and give a speech about malaise. Especially if he is talking about…

  3. Tyson Chandler and the acceptance of limitations

    Dec 6, 2012, 5:44 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler reacts after drawing a foul and scoring a basket against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler is talented, but he’s also ridiculously limited in terms of what he can actually do on a basketball court. Chandler is a true 7-footer with a strong build, but he possesses no post game whatsoever. There are no jump hooks, no drop steps, no up-and-under moves — nothing. In…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers show up for a half, that’s enough in New Orleans

    Dec 6, 2012, 3:29 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching Bilbo Baggins going on a drunken ‘Unexpected Journey’… Lakers 103, Hornets 87: On night where Kobe Bryant became only the 5th player in NBA history to hit the 30,000 career point plateau, the Lakers also got the win. And so…

  5. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe Bryant makes history

    Dec 6, 2012, 1:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets

    There were plenty of stellar performances on a night that featured an 11-game slate. Kyle Lowry continues to toil in obscurity in Toronto, putting up 34 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in a loss to the equally horrendous Kings. DeMarcus Cousins had no problem getting his confidence back in the same game with a 25-point,…

  6. Carmelo says he ‘doesn’t know’ if he’ll play Thursday against Heat after getting stitches in Charlotte

    Dec 5, 2012, 11:14 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

    The Knicks beat the Bobcats in dramatic fashion on Wednesday, but Carmelo Anthony wasn’t on the court to see J.R. Smith’s heroics. Anthony was forced out of the game and into the locker room after suffering a laceration to a finger on his left hand, after diving into the stands to chase down a loose…

  7. J.R. Smith hits the step-back jumper at the buzzer to help Knicks beat Bobcats (VIDEO)

    Dec 5, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Smith is surrounded by team mates after making a last second shot to beat Charlotte Bobcats in their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    The last few possessions of this game were pretty crazy, so it’s only fitting that things ended on a shot like this. The Knicks beat the Bobcats on Wednesday in a game that was closer than expected, likely due to the fact that it was a look-ahead contest for them with a nationally televised game…

  8. Expect Rajon Rondo to get lengthy suspension for fight

    Nov 29, 2012, 8:33 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    The NBA league office doesn’t take kindly to its players fighting on the court. It really doesn’t take kindly to said fights spilling over into the very-expensive seats of people who sit courtside at NBA games. That’s what happened when a fight broke out between the Celtics and Nets Wednesday night, when Rajon Rondo came…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics, Spurs need OT for wins

    Nov 26, 2012, 5:26 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili; DeMar DeRozan;

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while out buying a $4.2 million gold Christmas tree… Spurs 111, Raptors 106 (2OT): Now this is a close game — at the end of every quarter and the first overtime this was a one-point or tied game. Toronto needs to…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

    Our nightly recap of the games from around the NBA. Or, what you missed while going out tonight because you have to deal with your family tomorrow… Thunder 117, Clippers 111 (OT): Nobody stops Chris Paul, but the Thunder did a better job of slowing him down than anyone has this season and that’s how…

  11. J.R. Smith says Jerryd Bayless may have ‘little man’s complex’ after altercation

    Nov 17, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    J R Smith, Tony Allen

    Late in the second quarter of the Grizzlies’ win over the Knicks on Friday, J.R. Smith and Jerryd Bayless got into it briefly, and received double technicals for the extracurricular activity. Smith appeared to catch Bayless with an elbow after curling around a Rasheed Wallace screen, and Bayless retaliated with a shot to the face.…

  12. Grizzlies knock Knicks from ranks of undefeated

    Nov 17, 2012, 2:32 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Rasheed Wallace

    Here’s a good one for your friends who think they know basketball, but maybe don’t follow the day-to-day happenings of the NBA all that closely. The best record in basketball now belongs to the Memphis Grizzlies, as they had no trouble taking care of the previously undefeated Knicks by a final of 105-95. New York…

  13. The Knicks are legit. If they can keep this up is another question.

    Nov 16, 2012, 1:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks are 6-0, the last undefeated team in the NBA — and it’s not a fluke. They are defending better than anyone in the league, giving up just 93.6 points per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata. (Anyone who says they just started defending this year wasn’t watching last year.) Their offense with Carmelo Anthony at…

  14. New York 104, San Antonio 100: Yes, the Knicks are for real.

    Nov 16, 2012, 12:09 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    You know how announcers talk about Shane Battier? How they say he “does things that don’t show up in the boxscore” and how his value can’t really be defined by common statistics? Well, no one ever really says those things about Carmelo Anthony. Ever. And that’s fair. Anthony’s entire career has been defined by the…

  15. J.R. Smith says he is partying responsibly this season

    Nov 15, 2012, 4:33 PM EDT

    Knicks' Smith reacts after shooting a three-point shot against Heat in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    J.R. Smith has always been a gunner, a volume scorer. But this year — though five games at least — there is a sudden efficiency. The career 42.8 percent shooter is hitting 49.3 percent overall, and a ridiculous 72.2 percent from three (and he’s taking from downtown 3.6 a game). We’re going to ignore the…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Even when sloppy Knicks get win

    Nov 14, 2012, 2:58 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thanking Buddha this guy is not on your team…. Spurs 84, Lakers 82: The Bernie Bickerstaff era in Los Angeles came to an end with a missed Pau Gasol three and a loss. Bickerstaff had a .667 winning percentage as…

  17. Three Stars of the Night: The big boys showed up on Friday

    Nov 10, 2012, 3:17 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Nights like this have happened before and will happen again — as much we love the stories of the rookies finding themselves or the under-appreciated player having a huge night, the NBA’s superstars are the NBA’s superstars for a reason. Nike pays them to sell shoes for a reason. The NBA’s stars showed up in…

  18. J.R. Smith can’t get over the price of LeBron’s new shoes (VIDEO)

    Nov 6, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith, Evan Turner

    We’ve covered the release of latest signature shoe from LeBron James, the LeBron X. The best player in the game deserves the highest quality footwear, but the price tag still has some unable to come to terms with the cost associated with that reality. Add Knicks guard J.R. Smith to that list. Smith appeared in…

  19. Video: J.R. Smith’s monster slam dunk

    Nov 6, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks blew out the Sixers for the second time in as many days, and this slam dunk from J.R. Smith provided the exclamation point. Two things to love about this one: First, the way Smith’s entire body seems to arch back as he’s flying toward the rim before throwing it down is amazing. And…

  20. Video: Doug Collins is not impressed with J.R. Smith’s huge dunk

    Nov 5, 2012, 10:29 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    My favorite part of this video is not J.R. Smith‘s dunk, although it is impressive and powerful. It is not Smith going over looking to say some magical words to the fans in Philly who just witnessed said dunk. It is not Pablo Prigioni getting in the air then getting bailed out with the 25-foot back…

  21. Knicks continue impressive start by taking care of Sixers

    Nov 4, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Thaddeus Young

    A tip-off time of 12 noon in the NBA can often be trouble for both teams. It’s a quirk in the schedule for a league whose players are used to gearing up to perform at their peak sometime after 7:30 p.m., so the broken routine can result in some rough basketball during those early afternoon…

  22. Knicks play like adults, spank the Heat in home opener

    Nov 2, 2012, 11:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The advanced age of the Knicks has been a source of comedy this offseason, but the Miami Heat probably don’t think the Knicks are much of a joke after getting blown out, 104-84, at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks may be short on speed and athleticism with their role players, but it’s evident already that…

  23. Report: Amar’e Stoudemire possibly out 6-8 weeks

    Oct 29, 2012, 10:57 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    When one door closes, another one opens. Now, Knicks big men, don’t everybody clutch their lower back and slowly lurch towards the door at the same time. This is an opportunity for a player to establish that he’s truly an offensive savant, and as much fun as a Rasheed Wallace revival would be, this is…

  24. Tyson Chandler isn’t buying ‘Melo scoring less this season

    Oct 26, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Alan Anderson, Carmelo Anthony,

    Carmelo Anthony is not just going to be a scorer anymore. He’s changed. It’s about team and trust and distributing the rock. That’s what he’s saying, anyway. “I’m done trying to score 35, 40 points to win the basketball game. I don’t want that role anymore” You buying that? Tyson Chandler isn’t. From the Wall…

  25. ‘Sheed finally in shape enough to practice with Knicks

    Oct 23, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Three weeks of intense conditioning has finally gotten Rasheed Wallace in shape enough to step on a basketball court. Rasheed Wallace practiced with the Knicks on Tuesday. So tweets Jonah Ballow of Knicks.com. The Knicks signed Wallace a few weeks back, but to a non-guaranteed contract, in part because of conditioning concerns. After a couple…
