  1. Celtics look to Garnett, Knicks look to ball movement to spark offenses in Game 2

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Boston Celtics in the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    Game 1 of the Celtics vs. Knicks played to form — the Celtics’ physical and aggressive defense made it hard for the Knicks to score, but Boston struggled even more on offense putting up just 8 points in the fourth quarter and falling 85-78. But for the Celtics there was one real reason to be…

  2. Bad trend for Boston: Knicks’ veteran bench mattered, Celtics’ didn’t

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Courtney Lee, Jeff Green

    Tyson Chandler, looking rusty after missing a lot of time with a bulging disc in his neck, wasn’t himself. The New York Knicks count on him to be a defensive force that owns the paint and get a few points off pick-and-rolls, but he wasn’t really doing either. So Mike Woodson turned to his bench…

  3. Celtics win three quarters, Knicks own fourth to take Game 1

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Boston Celtics in the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    Basketball is about how you adapt and how you finish. The first 24 minutes Saturday’s Game 1 between Boston and New York went exactly how the Celtics want this first round series to unfold — Boston shot 53.6 overall and 4-10 from three, Jeff Green had 20 points on 10 shots, Avery Bradley had 11…

  4. Seven players whose teams need them to step up big in the postseason

    Apr 20, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Jeff Green Since his 43-point game in mid-March (excluding Boston’s season finale, when regular players rested), Green has averaged 20.0, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. By any eye test, he’s looked excellent. But in that span, the Celtics have been outscored by 3.6 points per 100 possession with him on the court and…

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    SEASON RECORDS New York:54-28, second seed in East Boston: 41-40, seven seed in East (the odd number of games is due to the cancelled one the day after the Boston Marathon tragedy, it did not impact the standings) SEASON SERIES The Knicks won the regular season 3-1, but both these teams went through seasons within…

  6. Rasheed Wallace retires from NBA. Again. But he means it now.

    Apr 17, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    rasheed wallace knicks

    Coach Mike Woodson basically begged Rasheed Wallace to come out of retirement and play for the Knicks this season — and for 20 games it worked. He averaged 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 14.6 minutes per game giving them solid play off the bench and letting Tyson Chandler and other bigs get some rest.…

  7. Knicks to sit Anthony, Chandler Martin Monday night

    Apr 15, 2013, 3:38 PM EDT

  8. Solomon Jones: Knicks starter by night, free-agent-to-be by day

    Apr 15, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Solomon Jones

    The Knicks started Solomon Jones yesterday. Today, they waived him. Jones played just two game with New York, but he will go down in Knicks history, according to Adam Reisinger: Solomon Jones finishes his stint in NY with the worst PER in Knicks history (minimum 15 minutes played): -5.7 Why would the Knicks do this?…

  9. Rasheed Wallace may return for Knicks this week

    Apr 14, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    rasheed wallace knicks

    Rasheed Wallace hasn’t played a game for the Knicks since mid-December due to a stress fracture that later required surgery, but he may be ready to come back just in time for New York’s trip to the postseason. From Marc Berman of the New York Post: Rasheed Wallace could play for the first time since…

  11. Knicks look very much a contender out-scoring Thunder in OKC

    Apr 7, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd

    What do you want from your title contender? A superstar to lead the team? How about Carmelo Anthony with 36 points and 12 rebounds — nine offensive? He took over the league’s scoring title race with that performance. Toughness inside? How about 19 offensive rebounds on one end and your big center Tyson Chandler contesting…

  12. Kenyon Martin throws down all over Birdman (VIDEO)

    Apr 3, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Chris Andersen, Kenyon Martin

    We can pick apart the flaws in Kenyon Martin‘s game if you want, but his ability to go strong to the rim and finish was not really in question. But for verification, ask Chris Andersen. The Birdman got dunked on by Martin during the Knicks win over the Heat Tuesday in what may have been…

  13. Knicks’ Tyson Chandler could return Tuesday against Heat

    Apr 1, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    The Knicks are on an eight-game winning streak heading into a game with the Heat Tuesday — the Knicks can lock up that season series and gain another measure of confidence should the two meet in the playoffs. And it looks like the Knicks may have their shot-blocking, defensive anchor of a center Tyson Chandler…

  14. Kenyon Martin on Boston not signing him: “It’s their fault”

    Mar 27, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Jonas Valanciunas, Alan Anderson

    With Kevin Garnett out a couple of weeks dealing with “inflammation” in his ankle, the lack of depth up front for Boston is exposed. It cost them against the Knicks Tuesday night, the fifth straight loss for Boston. They could have used someone such as New York’s late pickup Kenyon Martin. But they chose not…

    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

    Another day, another injured Knick. Or two. Before the season when we all joked about the Knicks old roster, particularly the bench, this was the concern. Old bodies break down more. The Knicks front line was already short with Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony sidelined with knee issues (although Anthony should be back this week…

  17. Kenyon Martin says Clippers “can’t do it in the playoffs”

    Mar 18, 2013, 10:56 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Los Angeles Clippers last four losses are to the Spurs, Thunder, Nuggets and Grizzlies. The teams they will have to beat in the playoffs. It doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. In the first months of this season the Clippers looked like a title contender, right now that is simply not the case. Their defense in…

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    We showed you DeAndre Jordan getting loose for a windmill jam on a fast break early in the Clippers’ win over the Knicks, and as it turned out, that was only the beginning of the highlight show. Blake Griffin got his share of dunks along the way, none more exciting than this one-handed throwdowm off…

  19. Knicks to ink Kenyon Martin for rest of season Friday

    Mar 15, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Jason Kidd

    Thursday night Kenyon Martin was a starter for the Knicks, playing better than 30 minutes and scoring 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting. Not bad for a guy on a 10-day tryout contract. That ends Friday — Martin’s second 10-day contract is up and the Knicks will make it official and sign him for the rest…

  22. Report: Four teams have conversations with Amundson

    Feb 28, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    Around this time of year, with the playoffs looming and growing closer, teams start to think about adding a little bit of veteran depth to the roster. Guys that will not get a lot of run but can be trusted in small roles, plus will be professional in practice and preparation. That’s where Louis Amundson…

  23. Kenyon Martin says it was humbling to be left on NBA sidelines

    Feb 28, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Kenyon Martin was back on an NBA court Wednesday night, playing his first game as a member of the New York Knicks. He played just five minutes and had zeros across the box score, but with the news that Rasheed Wallace is out for the rest of the regular season (at least) the odds Martin…

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…
