  1. Pistons start tallest back court in 24 years

    Mar 18, 2011, 10:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Indiana Pacers

    Detroit coach John Kuester’s random lottery starting lineups got interesting Friday night. They didn’t have Richard Hamilton to choose from as he left to be with his family after the passing of his grandmother. So the starting backcourt was 6’8” Tracy McGrady at the point and 6’11” Austin Daye at the two. That’s the tallest…

  2. Video: Toney Douglass goes downtown

    Mar 18, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    The Knicks’ Toney Douglas was channeling Downtown Freddie Brown, or Petula Clark, or somebody, but he was dialed in from downtown Thursday. He had five three pointers in the first half, was 9-of-12 from three total and helped lead the Knicks to a franchise record 20 three pointers on the night. And you thought Douglass…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s raining threes in New York

    Mar 18, 2011, 3:33 AM EDT

    Shawne Williams

    What you missed while watching your bracket go up in flames…. Knicks 120, Grizzlies 99: This was an offensive showcase for the Knicks. They knocked down a franchise record 20 threes, led by Toney Douglas who had five in the first half and finished 9-of-12 from deep for the game. The Knicks scored at a…

  4. ‘Melo says Knicks defensive schemes holding team back. Riiiight.

    Mar 17, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Nobody is question that the Knicks defense has struggled since the trade. Not even the Knicks. But Carmelo Anthony has figured out the problem — it’s the coach’s fault. Well, that’s not exactly what he told the New York Post (via Slam), he blamed the…

  5. PBT St. Patrick’s Day/Thursday morning one liners

    Mar 17, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    rick adelman

    Rick Adelman is likely leaving the Rockets at the end of the season, and everybody is good with that. Elton Brand tries to be understanding, but he didn’t really like Jalen Rose’s comments about Duke much either. Great name for these Knicks: They are in the Melozoic era. Also fantastic breakdown of the mixed results…

  6. Video: Tyler Hansbrough is beasting — and dunking

    Mar 16, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    In case you haven’t missed it, Tyler Hansbrough is balling right now. Five straight games with 20 or more points. A couple double-doubles in there. He dropped 30 on what passes for the Knicks interior defense Tuesday night. (If his little brother can channel some of this Notre Dame could go a long way in…

  7. New York’s pick-up game defense neutralizes improved offense

    Mar 16, 2011, 11:50 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Win three in a row, lose three in a row. Beat the Heat, get swept on a home-and-home by the Pacers. Getting a read on the New York Knicks with Carmelo Anthony is hard because they are so erratic. They are 6-6 since the trade drama ended and have looked both like the team nobody…

  8. Danny Granger beats the Knicks at the buzzer

    Mar 16, 2011, 8:09 AM EDT

    Danny Granger

    The Knicks aren’t exactly known for their defense, so maybe it’s not a huge surprise that they allowed the Indiana Pacers, a team that ranks just 23rd in offensive efficiency, to put up 63 second-half points en route to a victory over New York on Tuesday. But the way the Knicks allowed this game to…

  9. Jimmer Fredette’s family wants the Knicks to draft him

    Mar 15, 2011, 11:11 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette

    Jimmer Fredette is one of the must-watch players in the NCAA tournament. Maybe the must-watch player. We can get into how he will fit in the NBA, but he is a special college player who is averaging 28.5 points per game and is hitting 40.4% from three. And all that while he uses a ridiculous…

  10. Denver’s defense is much better, but that’s not all about ‘Melo

    Mar 15, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Denver Nuggets

    The numbers do not lie. It’s a small sample size, but the trend is unmistakable — Denver is a much better defensive team without Carmelo Anthony. They have given up 99.3 points per 100 possessions in the 10 games he has been gone, a number that would be the best in the league if spread…

  11. Nuggets Raymond Felton: “We’re a better team (than the Knicks)”

    Mar 14, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    The Denver Nuggets have gone from being the team that concerned first-round playoff opponents because they had shot makers in Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to a team that concerns first-round playoff opponents because they play good defense. These Nuggets are a lot different than the old Nuggets (and by old we mean a month…

  12. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Mar 14, 2011, 11:20 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Time to fill out your NCAA brackets (mine should be shot by noon on Thursday, based on past years). Of course, you can fill out those brackets right here at NBCSports.com. From the NY Daily News: If the Knicks are going to jack up ticket prices an average of 49 percent next season, they need…

  13. Report: Knicks will pick up option, may even extend Billups deal

    Mar 14, 2011, 11:05 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    Chauncey Billups may not be the ideal point guard for a Mike D’Antoni offense, but he’s the best point the Knicks has had in a long time. So the Newsday report that the team plans on picking up the $14.2 million extension for Billups next season is not a surprise. (The Knicks could buy him…

  14. Knicks ticket prices to jump average 49 percent next season

    Mar 11, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Apparently the economy is turning around in New York City. Because the cost of seeing the new and improved New York Knicks will be a lot higher next year — the average seat price is going up by 49 percent, as the New York Post reports. MSG sports president Scott O’Neil is scheduled to meet…

  15. Will the Knicks bring back Chauncey Billups?

    Mar 11, 2011, 11:52 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    He’s not a classic Mike D’Antoni system guy. Almost the opposite, really. But Chauncey Billups is an elite point guard who can adjust his game (and D’Antoni has adjusted his system a little), a guy who is comfortable on the big stage and under pressure, and in the end that’s what matters. When has played,…

  16. Amar’e Stoudemire picks up 16th technical, suspension pending

    Mar 10, 2011, 10:54 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    Amar’e Stoudemire’s status for Sunday’s Knicks game against the Pacers is now in doubt as he picked up his 16th technical Thursday night, the number that triggers an automatic one-game suspension. Although, don’t be shocked if the league rescinds this one. Everyone’s favorite referee (*cough, cough*) Bennett Salvatore rushed in with 9:37 left in the…

  17. How Deron Williams almost became a Knick (instead of ‘Melo)

    Mar 10, 2011, 9:08 PM EDT

    Deron Williams, Avery Johnson, Billy King

    If the Denver Nuggets front office had gotten their wishes — if they could have traded Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets for Derrick Favors and picks rather than to New York — then Deron Williams would be a Knick today. In one of the infinite alternate universes that is the reality, but in…

  18. Knicks may covet Marc Gasol, but he is playing it cool

    Mar 10, 2011, 6:56 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Knicks have become the ultimate leverage for free agents — flirt publically with the big market team trying to rebuild through free agency and watch your current team up their offer to keep you. Ask Rudy Gay how that works if you’re unsure. Marc Gasol of the suddenly hot Memphis Grizzlies is a guy…

  19. Dallas coach calls players “soft,” Jason Terry not too fond of that

    Mar 10, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Brown

    If you tuned out last night with Dallas up 7 and one minute to go, you missed one epic collapse. Just the fact the Hornets got three offensive rebounds in the final minute — not to mention 8 straight points — to get the win should tell you how Dallas played. How they lost to…

  20. Video: Wednesday night game winners (all in one place)

    Mar 10, 2011, 8:14 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What a night. Carmelo Anthony had the big shot to win it, Kevin Durant hit the big one to send it to overtime (where the Thunder won). Dirk Nowitzki missed his chance to joint them. The Jazz got one lucky tip in to get their win. It was a wild night of buzzer-beater finishes around…

  21. The Knicks have found their starting center… Jared Jeffries?

    Mar 8, 2011, 9:54 AM EDT

    Jared Jeffries New York Knicks

    They tried Ronny Turiaf. They tried Timofey Mozgov. But finally, Mike D’Antoni has found his man. Jared Jeffries. Wait, Jared Jeffries? As in the guy the Knicks signed off the street a week ago is now locked in as their starting center? Yup. There was a thought he might get the job and D’Antoni told…

  22. Knicks stars have good laugh at Heat’s tears

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Back in early July, when the Knicks had missed out on LeBron James and the Heat seemed to be forming a juggernaut, this day seemed a long way off. A day when Knicks stars Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, feeling confident after another big win, were having a laugh at the expense of the Heat…

  23. Mike D’Antoni has tweaked offense to fit Anthony, Billups

    Mar 4, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    Seven seconds or less was the perfect Steve Nash offense. It was Joe Montana in a West Coast formation. Nash is quick up the court, the best decision maker in the game, can shoot almost as well as he can pass. The offense was designed for him. It’s as close as turning a player loose…

  24. Carmelo Anthony’s Dear John letter to Denver fans

    Mar 3, 2011, 5:52 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Carmelo Anthony has gone from Denver. Because he forced his way out. But, you know, he still loves you Denver fans. He really appreciates you. Sure, he has moved on the next phase of his career. Bright lights and the big city. But he’ll always care about you. That’s why he left you this goodbye…

  25. Mavericks make it official, sign Corey Brewer

    Mar 3, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    Corey Brewer

    It was just a formality at this point, Corey Brewer had been in negotiations with the Mavericks for a couple of days. Now it’s official, Brewer is part of the Dallas Mavericks, the team announced. This is a three-year deal expected to be in the $7 million range (starting at about $2 million a year),…
