Written by William Lee

Date Month Day Home/Away Opponent Time   Highlights
Wednesday October 29 vs Chicago 8:00 P.M. Knicks kick off their 2014-2015 season against the best defensive team of the 2013-2014 season with the addition offensive fire power of Pau Gasol, Doug McDermontt, and Nikola Mirotic. Not to mention the return of the 2011 MVP, Derrick Rose, this is a must see for any NBA fan.
Thursday October 30 at Cleveland 8:00 P.M. NBA schedule makers sure know how to make the opening week exciting! New York does not have to wait long for the new look Cavs, the Knicks get to see first hand how deadly the new Big Three of LeBron, Irving, and Love**pending** can be.

Monday November 24 at Houston 8:00 P.M. New York won’t have much to be thankful during Thanksgiving weekend. The NBA schedule makers did a disservice to the Knicks, putting them on a three game road trip to see star studded James Harden and Dwight Howard at Houston. Then just before Thanksgiving, Dirk Nowitzki and our old buddy Tyson Chandler. And for the finale OKC and the reigning MVP Kevin Durant. It will be great NBA basketball to watch, but this can easily be the beginning of a losing streak.
Wednesday November 26 at Dallas 7:30 P.M.
Friday November 28 at Oklahoma City 8:00 P.M.
Sunday November 30 vs. Miami 7:30 P.M. After will most likely be a horrible Thanksgiving weekend for the Knicks, New York will hope to share some of it’s misery with the Heat.

Sunday December 14 vs. Toronto 7:30 P.M.  
Tuesday December 16 vs. Dallas 8:00 P.M. Tyson Chandler and Raymond Faton Felton returns to MSG, it is pretty safe to say they will get booed…which is unfortunate. Vice versa, 26 games into the season, how will Knicks fans feel about Calderon and Dalembert. Who will have won the trade?

Knicks vs. Timberwolves – 3-6-14 – Game Recap

Written by William Lee

New York finally ended their losing streak, and their hero ironically was Raymond Felton, whom has recently been vilified by New York papers and tabloid for his illegal possession of firearms.  And rightfully so, especially if the allegations of him pointing the gun at his wife are true, but for now, that’s all it is, just allegations, and Felton will have his date in court soon enough. For one night though Felton was the hero.

            Raymond Felton had his best game, possibly all year, but definitely his best game since his arrest. Felton was great at getting into the paint and scoring, as well as facilitating the offense Wednesday night. Felton had the best +/- of any player with a +21 scoring18 points and handing out 8 assists, along with four steals. Felton made crucial plays in the fourth quarter, holding off any potential Minnesota comeback.

            Felton scored seven points and dished out three assist in the fourth quarter. The Timberwolves made a 7-0 to cut the Knicks’ lead into single figure 107-99 with 2:43 remaining in the game. After a quick timeout, Felton would hit a clutch floater to push the Knicks’ lead back up to double digits. Then Felton would put a cap on his fantastic night by hitting a three that essentially sealed the game with 1:08 remaining, making the score 114-101. New York would go on to defeat Minnesota 118-106.

Knicks vs Timberwolves 11-3-13 – Game Recap

There was a lot of this

Written by William Lee

The Timberwolves jumped out to a 40-19 lead in the first quarter, and never looked back, winning tonight’s game 109-100. The scoring prowess of the two Kevins from the Minnesota Timberwolves proved to be too much for the Knicks to handle. All Star Kevin Love finished with 34 points 15 rebounds and 5 assist. And Kevin Martin was extremely efficient, going 9-12 from the field, including a perfect 5-5 from beyond the arc, finishing the game with 30 points. (He had the best +/- of any player, +26) Both Kevins were in double digit scoring by the end of the first quarter, combining for 24 points. The Timberwolves were looking to push the pace all night, running off of makes and misses from the Knicks. The Knicks didn’t help themselves, committing six turnovers; the Timberwolves took full advantage, converting on all of them, leading to 12 points off of the turnovers.

With 3:56 left in the first quarter, the Knicks were still in the game, the Timberwolves leading 19-15. The turn of the game came with Carmelo Anthony committing his second personal foul, while trying to deny Kevin Love post position. This was a start to a rough night for Carmelo Anthony, as he finished the game going 8-21 from the field, for 22 points. The Timberwolves shutdown the runner up scoring champion from the previous year, Kevin Durant, forcing him to go 4-11 from the field and committing four turnovers Friday night.   Continue reading

A league without fouls

No Foul

The year: 2013. Thanks to the new penalties instituted by the NBA in October of 2012, all flopping has been eliminated from the game. But these rules didn’t go nearly far enough. Players have responded by diminishing their core strength and maintaining a high center of gravity, increasing their chances of falling over legitimately. Gregg Popovich has pioneered the “reverse screen,” intended to channel the on-ball defender into his check at a high speed. Dirk Nowitzki now spends entire offensive possessions on one leg, and Nike has teamed up with Dwyane to market the first set of high heels for basketball, the “Pump Fakes.”

Massive discontent with this state of affairs led to the recent ouster of David Stern as commissioner. He has been replaced by Jeff Van Gundy, whose first act was to abolish the foul in the NBA. These rule changes have paved the way for a new superteam, destined to dominate the postseason for years to come.

STARTERS:
Gilbert Arenas
J.R. Smith
Metta World Peace
Kevin Love
Jordan Hill

RESERVES:
Jason Kidd
Tony Allen
Stephen Jackson
Gerald Wallace
Jason Smith
Kevin Garnett
Andrew Bynum

The starting backourt of J.R. Smith and Gilbert Arenas is the best in the league at containing dribble penetration. Continue reading

Western Conference Initial Reactions

Western Conference

Oklahoma City – This team is on fire right now.  The loss of Maynor for the season doesn’t seem to have affected them at all.  The Westbrook/Durant feud seems to have been nothing but hot air.  The team that everyone expected to make the conference finals before the season started is on pace to do just that.

Los Angeles Lakers – Kobe is ignoring the fact that this team is much worse than last year and Metta World Piece has only had 1 good game all season.  Playing with a chip on his shoulder after ESPN named him the 7th best player in the league, he’s been destroying teams,  recently with four straight 40 point games.  Will be interesting to see how they handle Bynums annual injury.  You know it’s coming Laker fans.

San Antonio Spurs – These guys just won’t go away.  They’ve been called old and past their prime for years and yet still lead their division.  It helps when your scouts consistently find a player no one has ever heard of that ends up being very good.  Gary Neal was that player last year;  James Anderson is that player this year.

The Top Ten Things I Will Miss If the 2011/12 NBA Season Is Cancelled – Part 1

I’m starting to get really nervous that there isn’t going to be a season this year.  We’ve lost all November games and the sides aren’t even talking anymore.  This is bad.

This Sucks

Last season was one of the best in recent memory and this season promised to be just as good if not better.  In preparation of the worst I put together a list of the top 10 things I will miss the most:

10.  The Timberwolves

Yes, the Timberwolves.  Ricky Rubio has finally arrived, they drafted Derrick Williams with the #2 pick and they have the best rebounder in the leage in Kevin Love.  Throw in complete wildcards like Beasley and Darko and I’m very intrigued by this team.  They aren’t going to compete for a championship, but they might be very fun to watch.
