Knicks-Heat: What to Watch For

Earlier this season, the Knicks lost to the Heat 99-89 in Miami. This not the same Knicks team. That was a Toney Douglas led Knick team with no Melo, no JR Smith and Jeremy Lin was sitting on the bench. This Knicks team is deeper, better and more confident then the team that rolled into Miami on January 27th. The Heat are rolling right now having won 10 of 11 and 7 in a row. The Knicks have obviously been immersed in Linsanity for the past few weeks and have turned their season around. This is going to be a hell of a game.

Knicks-Hawks: What to Watch For

The new look Knicks will try to rebound from Monday’s loss to New Jersey tonight against the Hawks at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks and Hawks split their 4 game season series last season. Tonight will be game 2 of the Melo/Lin era. Game 1 did not go so well as Anthony was rusty and Lin was passive late in the game. I expect both players to play well tonight against a quality opponent. As showcased in my piece yesterday, the Knicks fail to bring energy against bad teams but have been able to get up for good teams. Atlanta, 19-13, is a quality opponent. I think the Knicks will play well tonight and defend home court.


A Disturbing Trend Has Arisen At Madison Square Garden

The Knicks have been and up an down team all season. Sometimes they look like a title contender and sometimes they look like they could be in the running for a top 5 pick, but then you remember that James Dolan threw all their picks into the Melo deal. One day they’ll beat Dallas but then they’ll turn around and give up fifteen 3′s to the Nets. At 16-17, this season has been turbulent for Knick fans to say the least. However for New York, throughout this lockout-shortened season one thing has remained a constant:

The Knicks inability to beat bad teams.


Notes From Knicks 100-92 Loss to the Nets

That game sucked. On Monday night, the Knicks lost a tough game to the rival New Jersey Nets 100-92. Point guard Deron Williams and ex-Kardashian Kris Humphries killed the Knicks. Williams was unconscious most of the game, including when he foolishly fouled out of the game in the middle of the fourth, and finished with 38 points. The Knicks were unable to bother Williams from outside the arc as he shot 8/14 on 3′s. Humphries, who is actually a very good player, finished with yet another double-double scoring 14 points and 14 rebounds. The only positive thing about New Jersey’s performance is that Humphries and Williams are both on my fantasy team. From the Knicks perspective, the addition of Carmelo Anthony did not help. Anthony looked motivated to get others involved and he did not force shots but he was clearly rusty after missing 7 games. Baron Davis made his debut and looked as good as one can after missing about 8 weeks with a herniated disk in his back. I will say, before I get into my analysis, that the officiating was horrible tonight. The Knicks did not play winning basketball but I believe this game would have been much closer if the game was called more fairly. Multiple times the Knicks caught the short end of calls, resulting in momentum change in the game. More on that in a second.


Knicks-Nets: What to Watch For

Jeremy Lin got the best of Deron Williams last time these two teams matched up at Madison Square Garden. I expect this to be a hell of a battle tonight. Obviously Lin has been running ransack through the NBA the past two weeks. New Jersey has struggled all year but Williams is averaging 27.4 points per game in his last five games. The all-star point guard was reportedly unhappy with his performance in New York two weeks ago and he will be looking for revenge tonight. The 16-16 Knicks look to get above .500 and the Nets look to defeat their crosstown rivals. It should be fun.
