Andray Blatche had 28 points and 12 rebounds for the Philippines, and they still lost.

The Knicks just got one of the NBA’s best beards. That may be the best part of this deal.

That’s the news Derek Fisher wants on his second day as Knicks coach
Mar 10, 2014, 7:07 PM EDT
Does he mean Carmelo Anthony, Andrea Bargnani or J.R. Smith?

About that mask — a black carbon fiber one to protect his broken nose — impacting LeBron James’ shot… not so much. Call him Bane. Or Batman. Or the Phantom of the Opera. Or Hannibal Lector. To me LeBron looked like LeBron — he dropped 31 points (his fifth straight game over 30) on 13-of-19…

If the mask doesn’t fit, you’ve got to sit. Or something like that. We posted a couple days ago the plan for J.R. Smith to suit up for the New York Knicks Wednesday night wearing a mask to protect his fractured cheekbone. Except he didn’t suit up. After going through warm-ups Smith told the Knicks…

For a team that has had its success this season playing small ball, the Knicks have a lot of guys in their frontcourt. They start Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony but behind them are Kenyon Martin, Amar’e Stoudemire, Andrea Bargnani, Jeremy Tyler and Cole Aldrich. The challenge has been keeping all those banged-up bodies healthy…

It’s been nearly a week since Carmelo Anthony had 62 points and zero assists against the Charlotte Bobcats. The amazement over his scoring and giggling over his passing has begun to fade. But the deep-seated belief that Melo is a one-dimensional chucks who doesn’t make his teammates better persists, as strong as ever. The perception…

Beno Udrih has been barely serviceable with the Knicks this season, but due to injuries and a lack of other point guard talent available on the roster, the team hasn’t had a choice but to give him 12 starts, and 30 appearances in total where he’s averaged 19.2 minutes per contest. It isn’t always the…
Jan 21, 2014, 3:16 AM EDT
At points this season Beno Udrih has taken pointed criticism from Knicks coach Mike Woodson — remember back on Jan. 3 when J.R. Smith took an ill-advised three (tie game, shot clock turned off and rather than go for the last shot he fired away off an offensive rebound)? Woodson questioned why Udrih threw the…

The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is one traditionally well-celebrated in the NBA. Today features a 10-game slate, and we’ll provide live updates, highlights and recaps here as the day goes on. 1:15 a.m. ET Tuesday: Pacers 102, Warriors 94 (FINAL): The second half of this game felt like a playoff game, down to the…

This is a move that will be met with applause — if not shouts of “finally” — by Knicks fans. With the return of Pablo Prigioni Monday, Knicks coach Mike Woodson may start him and go small with his lineup. That according to the New York Post (hat tip Eye On Basketball). Prigioni will make…

The Knicks have been playing better lately, winning four of their last five despite the fact that they’re dealing with injuries to the likes of Pablo Prigioni and Tyson Chandler, along with the internal team suspension of J.R. Smith. New York needs a talent upgrade somewhere to continue this recent uptick, and even if the…

The Knicks recently elevated Pablo Prigioni’s role, and they were better for it. In the three games prior to Monday’s contest against Washington, Prigioni played 31, 39 and 31 minutes – his first 30-minute games since a season-opening win over the Bucks. And he produced: 16 assists, one turnover and eight steals in the three…

NEW YORK – It seemed as though the Knicks were in perfect position to finish off what would have been an uplifting win over the Wizards. They overcame a 15-point third quarter deficit, saw J.R. Smith get hot from three-point distance, and got more than solid minutes from Tim Hardaway Jr. off the bench. But a…

The Knicks and Nets as engaged in a thrilling competition: Which team is the biggest laughingstocks in the NBA? Both can lay claim. They have oversized payrolls, cartoonish owners, coaches on the hot seat and underwhelming stars. The Knicks have seen Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin feud, and the Nets have matched with Jason…

Last season the Knicks age — the oldest team in NBA history on average roster age — was an easy punch line. It wasn’t really fair as they were not as old once you compensated for the age of the rotations they played, plus the old guys won 54 games and won the first Nets…
Nov 19, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT
We’ve talked a lot about the defensive problems of the New York Knicks with Tyson Chandler out — and with good reason. In the last five games with him sidelined they have a defensive rating of 111.2, six points higher than their season average and 2.3 points higher than the worst defense in the NBA…

When Pablo Prigioni has been on the court this season, the Knicks have been 8.9 points per 100 possessions better. So he’s getting benched. Looking to put some spark in an offense that is 25th in the league so far this season (using points per possession), Knicks coach Mike Woodson said he is putting J.R.…

While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…
