  1. Call it gritty, ugly, whatever — Knicks win over Bucks means playoffs (probably)

    Apr 11, 2012, 11:36 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Early on Wednesday night it was all Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks offense, it was pretty. But against a feisty Bucks team you knew that wasn’t going to be enough. With these Knicks nothing comes easy. They were going to need defense. They were going to need someone to step up. They were going to…

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The New York Knicks lost their fifth straight Sunday, falling 106-94 to the Philadelphia Sixers in a game where the Sixers largely toyed with the Knicks for the fourth quarter. It’s not a surprise, downing sub-.500 teams by double-digits is kind of what Philly does this season. That’s their bread and butter. But of course,…

  4. Knicks’ Bill Walker out 4-6 weeks following elbow surgery

    Mar 5, 2012, 8:46 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    Through the first half of the season Bill Walker was getting a fair amount of run with the Knicks, but that had started to change in the last few weeks. First Carmelo Anthony returned and soaked up most of the minutes at the small forward spot. Then Steve Novak developed a real chemistry with Jeremy…

  5. The Knicks are winning, but now they can’t sleep

    Mar 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v New York Knicks

    From Newsday’s Al Iannazzone: GREENBURGH, N.Y. — The Knicks don’t just play in the city that never sleeps, they have become the team that has trouble sleeping. All the excitement that Jeremy Lin has generated around New York and inside Madison Square Garden has given some Knicks players a rush of adrenaline that has stayed with them long after…

  6. Heat have a plan for Jeremy Lin… and it’s not who you think

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Jeremy Lin vs. Joel Anthony. That is the matchup that will determine the highly anticipated showdown between the Miami Heat and New York Knicks Thursday night in South Beach. Not LeBron James or Dwyane Wade — although they will both get their say — but rather Joel Anthony. Let me explain. (Tom Haberstroh at ESPN…

  8. Linsanity continues as Lin lifts Knicks over Mavericks

    Feb 19, 2012, 4:17 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    And the show goes on. The scouting report was supposed to be out on Jeremy Lin. After a Hornets defense confounded, frustrated and beat him down Friday night, the blueprint was supposed to be in place to stop the dynamic young Knicks star. Yeah, that paradigm is over. Lin lit up the Mavericks and their…

  9. Jeremy Lin comes back to earth, but inspires Knicks win

    Feb 12, 2012, 1:11 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio, Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks would not have won this game two weeks ago. And that is the true measure Linsanity — it is not just the points and assists that Jeremy Lin brings anymore, it’s about the energy and fight he has brought out of this roster. Two weeks ago the Knicks would have rolled over and…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Jeremy Lin is king of New York

    Feb 7, 2012, 8:58 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin Knicks

    What you missed while thinking that even though you didn’t love Madonna’s halftime show at the Super Bowl, it was better than the Black Eyed Peas doing Tron or whatever it was the year before…. 76ers 95, Lakers 90: It was the Kobe Bryant and Lou Williams show, and it was our game of the…

  11. Tuesday morning one liners (KG is taunting Raptors again)

    RNPS IMAGES OF THE YEAR 2011

    Our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Kevin Garnett went all Kevin Garnett and taunted a Raptor during a meaningless preseason game. Does this even shock us anymore? Jason Terry had to leave Mavericks…

  12. Spurs sign three-point specialist Steve Novak from D-League

    Feb 7, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Steve Novak

    Well, that didn’t take long. We told you Friday former Maverick (and Clipper and Rocket) Steve Novak was headed to the D-League’s Reno Bighorns to try and play his way back into an NBA contract. Monday we learned that the San Antonio Spurs are about to pick up Novak, according to Jonathan Givony of Draft…

  14. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Feb 3, 2011, 10:50 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    The Dwight Howard technical count is at 13 heading into tonight’s game against the Heat. When he gets to 16 (and it is when) he gets a fine and a one-game suspension, then gets a game suspension for every other tech after that. How Joy Division songs explain the All-Star starters. Don’t be surprised if…

  15. Teams cut players at rapid rate as contract deadline approaches

    Jan 5, 2011, 1:46 PM EDT

    Brian Skinner

    The list of bench players waived by teams this week continues to grow faster than the mold on the Christmas leftovers still in the back of your refrigerator (you really should throw those out now). Brian Skinner in Milwaukee, John Lucas III in Chicago, Ronald Dupree in Toronto, Ime Udoka in San Antonio, Damien Wilkins…

    Teams are busy rounding out their rosters for training camps and a couple familiar names are popping up. Jarron Collins, half of the offensively challenged Collins twins, will be headed to Clippers, his agent told Hoopshype. Not sure there is much to this, they have Chris Kaman and DeAndre Jordan at the five already, not…
