    Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert smiles while running down court after a Pacers score during the second half of an NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game versus the New York Knicks in Indianapolis

    Tyson Chandler slowed to let a potential defensive rebound bounce in front of him. Seeing an opportunity, Tyler Hansbrough surged from behind and knocked the ball off Stoudemire as Hansbrough fell out of bounds. The ball bounced off Chandler and over the baseline, and though it next hit the knee of Hansbrough, who was then…

    It all started with 3:05 left in the third quarter. The Pacers had been on a 10-4 run and had taken a two-point lead — Indiana had the momentum. Game 2 of this second round series was starting to look a lot like Game 1, when the Pacers beat the Knicks in Madison Square Garden.…

    Knicks' Martin drives to the basket past Pacers' Mahinimi during the second quarter in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series in New York

    About midway through the third quarter the Knicks upped their defensive pressure, and with that came a big run and some spectacular plays. Like this one. Raymond Felton and Kenyon Martin trap the ball handler, get the steal, then put on a little show in transition. This play helped fire up the crowd, fired up…

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts after he was called for foul against Indiana Pacers in NBA game in New York

    The Knicks are not going to change who they are Tuesday night.

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts after he was called for foul against Indiana Pacers in NBA game in New York

    “Stinko de ‘Melo” That play on Cinco de Mayo was the headline on the back of the New York Post on Monday morning after the Indiana Pacers beat the Knicks handily in Game 1. In Madison Square Garden. Anthony fell back on the effort card. “You take out the X’s and O’s, they flat-out played…

  7. Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn defends his lone vote for ‘Melo for MVP

    May 6, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    LeBron James received 120 of the 121 first place votes for MVP — he was one vote short of being the first ever unanimous pick. The person who cast the lone dissenting vote was the very good, very well respected NBA writer for the Boston Globe Gary Washburn, who defended his vote Monday in the…

  8. Surprisingly it’s Pacers offense that is too much for Knicks in Game 1

    May 5, 2013, 7:34 PM EST

    David West, Roy Hibbert

    A lot of the focus in the Indiana vs. New York series was strength on strength — could the very good Pacers defense slow the very good Knicks offense? And they did slow it, they frustrated Carmelo Anthony, but the Knicks still got their points. However, it was the other end of the court that…

  9. Celtics forced Game 5, but can they really win it?

    May 1, 2013, 2:23 PM EST

    New York Knicks Anthony reacts after a foul was called during NBA Eastern Conference semifinal playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    J.R. Smith said that if he had played in Game 4, this series would have been a sweep. Argue that if you want — quantum physics tells us there are alternate universes where he plays and the Knicks both and lose. We all care about this timeline, where Smith is back for Game 5 at…

  10. Boston lives to see another day, beat Knicks to force Game 5

    Apr 28, 2013, 5:08 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Terry celebrates game winning shot against New York Knicks during overtime NBA Eastern Conference semifinal playoff basketball series in Boston

    What was it going to take for the Celtics to beat the Knicks in games this series? 1) A strong defense that contained a powerful Knicks offense. Like holding them to 34.4 percent shooting. Check. 2) Not letting Carmelo Anthony take over a game, force him into inefficient isolation shots. Such as 10-of-35 shooting. Check.…

  11. Knicks continue to dominate Celtics, take a 3-0 series lead

    Apr 26, 2013, 11:13 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    The Celtics are doing everything they can to compete in these playoffs, but the results haven’t been there, for a variety of reasons. Playing in Boston for the first time since the tragic Marathon bombings, there wasn’t a lack of inspiration or emotion for the Celtics heading into Game 3. As has been the case the…

  12. Can emotion of coming home lift Celtics to Game 3 win over Knicks?

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:15 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Doc Rivers

    The blueprint for Boston to get back into this series is there — they have won the first half of Games 1 and 2. Tenacious defense, getting points out of Jeff Green and/or Jason Terry to go with Paul Pierce, and to make the little hustle plays. The Celtics have had two problems. First, they…

  13. The Extra Pass: Lakers and Warriors forced to juggle lineups, Knicks do so by choice

    Apr 24, 2013, 1:20 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Warriors’ starters last night – Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut, Stephen Curry, Jarrett Jack and Klay Thompson – played one minute together during the regular season. The Lakers’ Game 1 starters – Steve Blake, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash and Metta World Peace – had never before shared the court. Such is life without…

    Apr 24, 2013, 12:17 AM EST

    New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony shoots over Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce during the fourth quarter in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    Meet the second game, same as the first game… If you thought the Boston Celtics couldn’t have a worse second half than their disasterous 25-point effort last Saturday in Game 1 against the Knicks, then you don’t know how anemic the Celtics offense can become. This time they blew a six point halftime lead by…

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

    Apr 23, 2013, 1:05 PM EST

    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…

  16. J.R. Smith drains the dagger three-pointer to seal Knicks’ win over Thunder (VIDEO)

    Apr 7, 2013, 5:30 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    It seemed like there were a lot of plays kind of like this one Sunday afternoon in Oklahoma City, where the Knicks earned their 12th straight victory by outscoring the Thunder. Scramble plays in this game often seemed to end with the ball in a Knicks shooter’s hands, who would then launch an open long…

    350x-1

    Only two more power rankings after this, so we are starting to turn our view toward the playoffs. Which still feel like the Heat then everyone else. 1. Heat (58-15, last week ranked No. 1). A gutty performance by the Chicago Bulls ended the Heat win streak at 27. But that was a one-time performance,…

  19. Raymond Felton drains half-court buzzer beater (VIDEO)

    Apr 1, 2013, 10:13 AM EST

    Raymond Felton

    Other players — Carmelo Anthony, Chris Copeland — had more points on Sunday but Raymond Felton was the driving force in the Knicks win over Boston. He was the guy breaking down the defense and creating shots. And he was the guy leading the first half barrage of threes that gave New York 65 first…

  20. Three Stars of the Night: Luol Deng looking playoff ready

    Apr 1, 2013, 12:30 AM EST

    Luol Deng

    Today there were some guys with really nice stat lines that just get an honorable mention. There was Paul Pierce (24 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists), who was one of the only Celtics to show up. For the Knicks Carmelo Anthony (24 points, 10 rebounds) had a good line but it was really Raymond Felton…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: Western teams jockey for position behind Heat.

    Kings Heat Basketball

    It’s Miami and then everyone else right now — but notice the next six teams in our weekly power rankings are from the West. That’s because the play of the second tier teams in the East has fallen off (Indiana, New York, Brooklyn) 1. Heat (51-14, last week ranked No. 1). What kind of concerns…

  22. Raymond Felton hears boos in Portland, then plays like he was still a Blazer

    Mar 15, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Felton shoots during NBA basketball game in Portland, Oregon

    It was bound to be a rough night for Raymond Felton on his return to Portland — and not because Trail Blazers fans were going to boo him. Carmelo Anthony, the focus on the Knicks offense, was out getting his knee drained. Tyson Chandler, Felton’s quality pick-and-roll partner, was out with his own sore knee…

  23. Damian Lillard leads Blazers to win over shorthanded Knicks

    Mar 15, 2013, 2:21 AM EST

    Damian Lillard, Isaiah Thomas

    The Knicks limped into Portland on Thursday, and were forced to give it a go against the Blazers without their two All-Stars. The result was pretty much what you would have expected. New York was dropped by the Blazers 105-90, thanks to a stellar 26 point, 10 rebound performance from Damian Lillard, the runaway candidate…

  24. Report: Knicks about to cut James White to add point guard

    Mar 14, 2013, 8:58 AM EST

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    The Knicks have some point guards on the roster — Raymond Felton starts and is solid at least and good many nights. Behind him are veterans Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni, two guys who play smart but are not exactly explosive shot creators anymore. Which is why the Knicks are looking at bringing in another…

  25. Thursday’s hostile homecoming: Raymond Felton to Portland

    Mar 13, 2013, 4:14 PM EST

    Raymond Felton

    While Carmelo Anthony is not going to be showered with rose petals and given boxes of chocolate Wednesday night when he returns to Denver, the venom for him there has tapered off with time. As Wednesday morning there were still tickets available — the game was not a sellout. But talk to people in Portland,…
