Knicks Vs. Celtics: New York Loses In Boston, 91-89

Two days before the New England Patriots and New York Giants meet for Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, the New York Knicks traveled to Boston to play the Celtics, and if the outcome of this game was any indicator on how the Knicks' and Celtics' NFL counterparts will play, Patriots fans will have another Super Bowl to celebrate. The Celtics defeated the Knicks by a score of 91-89 in TD Garden on Friday night.

With the loss, the Knicks fall to 8-15, which places them in 10th place in the Eastern Conference and in third place, behind the Celtics and 76ers, in the Atlantic Division. Meanwhile, the Celtics now have a 12-10 record, which puts them in seventh place in the conference and in second place in the division.

The Knicks were led by a 26-point performance by Carmelo Anthony. Center Tyson Chandler scored 20 points, Amare Stoudemire scored 16.

The Celtics were led by Paul Piece, who scored 30 points against the Knicks. Kevin Garnett scored 15 points, Ray Allen scored 14.

This is the Knicks' second loss in a row and their fifth loss in the last six games. They will look to get things back on track on Saturday evening against the Nets at home at 7:30 p.m. The Celtics have now won three games in a row and are looking to extend that streak at home against the Grizzlies on Sunday at noon.

Knicks 113, Pistons 86: Knicks Offense Wakes Up In Blowout Over Pistons

To finally break out of their losing slump, the New Yor Knicks simply needed to start knocking down some shots. Playing one of the worst teams in the NBA certainly didn’t hurt either.

New York improved to 8-13 with a wire-to-wire 113-86 victory over the lowly Pistons Tuesday night. The Knicks snapped a three-game losing streak and a four-game home losing streak, and finally broke out of their shooting malaise by connecting on 60 percent of their attempts on the night. Carmelo Anthony, who was a game-time decision, returned from missing the past two games due to injury and was efficient in helping run the Knicks’ offense in a way many thought he would all year. Anthony finished with 25 points on 9-of-14 shooting and also dished out a team-high six assists.

The best Knick in the first half however was Landry Fields. As we mentioned in our SBNation New York Power Rankings this morning, Fields’ play as of late has turned a corner, and he’s starting to resemble the pre-trade Fields from last season that made him one of the league’s top rookies. Fields connected on all four of his three point attempts in the first half, and all six of his shots overall. He finished with 18 points, five rebounds and five steals.

Ball movement and shot-making are two of the main aspects of the Knicks’ offense that have sorely been lacking this season. On Tuesday, New York finally hit from the perimeter on a consistent basis and was efficient with and protective of the ball, only turning it over 15 times. The Pistons (4-19) were able participants, playing poor defense and struggling to score as they have all year. Now the Knicks will have to see if they can keep up the good habits against good teams, and they’ll be tested right away on Thursday when the Chicago Bulls come to the Garden.

Knicks Schedule: New York Hosts Detroit Pistons With Carmelo Anthony In Doubt

When you’re in the situation the Knicks and head coach Mike D’Antoni are in, every game is a must-win. At home on Tuesday night against the lowly 4-18 Detroit Pistons, D’Antoni simply needs to find a way for the Knicks to get their eighth win of the season. With each loss, as the dubious streak continues, the calls for D’Antoni’s head will get louder, and their message will have more validity.

However the ailing Carmelo Anthony is still no guarantee to return to the Knicks’ lineup. He’s missed the last two games as he tries to recover from a sprained ankle, a sprained wrist and a bad thumb. Anthony will reportedly give it a go during the team’s morning shoot-around and go from there. Even if Anthony can go, it might be a better idea to let him sit this one out. That seems precarious for a team in desperate need of a win, but the Pistons are a team the Knicks should beat on their home floor regardless of Anthony’s status.

Detroit is just 1-10 on the road and is in the middle game of a back-to-back-to-back road swing. On Monday, they were blown out in Milwaukee by an underwhelming Bucks team, and the Pistons look like a team who is destined for a top-3 draft choice this summer. It could be a very ugly, low-scoring game as the Pistons are the league’s worst scoring team and one of the least efficient offensive teams, ranking 26th out of 30 in offensive efficiency (points per 100 possessions). The Knicks of course have been an improved defensive side but continue to struggle on the offensive end themselves.

There’s not much reason for celebration if the Knicks were to win tonight. It’s something they simply need to find a way to do.

Rockets 97, Knicks 84: New York Has Lost Nine Of 10

The reeling New York Knicks continued to stumble Saturday night, losing to the Houston Rockets, 87-84.

New York was without Carmelo Anthony for the second straight contest due to a litany of ailments. Amare Stoudemire scored a team-high 23 points to go with eight rebounds and Tyson Chandler added 14 points and 11 boards in the Knicks’ third straight loss. They have dropped nine of 10 overall.

“The thing about this stretch right here is it’s something you don’t want to get used to,” said Stoudemire. “Losing is definitely not something that we set out to do, it was a whole different game plan for us this season.”

Anthony also missed Friday’s 99-89 loss at the Heat while dealing with thumb, wrist and ankle issues. The staggering Knicks are just 7-13 this season.

Chase Budinger had 19 points and Goran Dragic added 16 for Houston. Thw Rockets played without leading scorer Kevin Martin, out with a foot injury,

“We’ve got good depth,” said Rockets coach Kevin McHale. “Those guys (the bench) can play basketball.”

Heat 99, Knicks 89: New York No Match For Miami

Miami, FL (Sports Network) – Dwyane Wade sparkled in his return to the lineup, scoring 28 points, and the Heat withstood a bevy of three-pointers from New York to earn a 99-89 victory over the short-handed Knicks.

LeBron James totaled 31 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Heat, who have won three in a row and six of their last seven games.

Wade, who came back following a six-game absence due to a sprained right ankle, made 11 of his 19 field goal attempts and all six of his foul shots. He also came up with five steals and even blocked a pair of shots.

“This is a very good team with or without me,” Wade said. “I was just trying to be aggressive. I’ve been out for a while. The best way to get your rhythm is by attacking the basket.”

With Carmelo Anthony sidelined because of thumb, wrist and ankle issues, the Knicks tried to beat the Heat with the long distance shot. They were on target, going 18-of-43 from beyond the arc, but were just 12-of-41 on two- point attempts.

Bill Walker was the offensive catalyst, going 7-of-10 from long distance for a 21-point night, but the Knicks suffered their eighth loss in nine games. New York was outscored 42-14 in the paint.

“I’m glad for him because we need him and he’s got to keep improving,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said of Walker. “He needs to keep working out his body. He could be the outside guy once we get Carmelo back and give us some more scoring.”

Walker stepped well behind the three-point line several times, making a trio of those shots in a span of 69 seconds in the third quarter, boosting the Knicks to a 62-58 lead. His last one in that sequence caromed off the glass, from 27 feet straight away from the hoop.

But New York’s interior defense couldn’t withstand Wade setting up James for some easy buckets and vice versa. In the final minute of the period, it was James taking command, as the two-time MVP motored down the lane for a lefty layup. That widened the Heat lead to 74-71 going to the fourth.

James winced in pain and looked as his left hand after being called for an offensive foul, when he plowed into Mike Bibby in the closing seconds of the quarter.

Steve Novak’s three tied the game to start the fourth, but Miami came back with an 8-1 burst, capped by Wade’s tip-in.

The sellout crowd at American Airlines Arena came to its feet when James flipped the ball to Wade for a two-handed alley-oop jam. That widened the gap to 88-79 with 4:42 remaining. Miami led by 12 down the stretch.

“If he’s putting on a uniform, I expect greatness out of him,” James said of Wade. “To be out six games and look like basically you didn’t miss a beat, his speed and his stamina were the two things that were like ‘wow.’ It’s good to have him back.”

Early on, it was a dunk fest for Wade and James. The two superstars combined for 18 first-quarter points, but the Knicks, thanks to four threes in the period had it even at 22 after 12 minutes.

Amare Stoudemire, who had 12 points in the game, was 0-for-4 from the field in the first quarter, part of a 2-for-14 effort from inside the arc in the stanza for New York.

“They were keying in on him, but other guys were open,” D’Antoni said. “That’s why they were shooting a lot of shots. He was great because he was just playing the game. He didn’t force anything.”

Miami led 52-48 at the half, and by that time the Knicks had already attempted 23 three-point shots.

Knicks Carmelo Anthony Will Miss Next Two Games; Baron Davis Too

According to Howard Beck of the New York Times, the New York Knicks will be without both Carmelo Anthony and Baron Davis this weekend when they play the Miami Heat and Houston Rockets on the road this weekend.

Carmelo taking next two games off to rest his injuries, D'Antoni says. Could return tues.

No Baron this weekend either.

Carmelo has been nursing wrist and ankle injuries for a while now and has not been performing at his usually high level. In his last six games Melo has attempted 126 shots, converting on only 40. In those six games the Knicks are 1-5 and 7-11 overall. They currently sit in third place in the Atlantic Division, five games behind the division-leading Philadelphia 76ers.

The Knicks will also be without the services of point guard, Baron Davis, who has yet to play in a game this season.

Cavaliers 91, Knicks 81: Knicks' Offense Falters Again

Well, that didn't last very long.

The New York Knicks' winning streak lasted just one game as New York was defeated on Wednesday night by the Cleveland Cavaliers, 91-81. New York dropped to 7-11 on the season and hasn't won a game in Cleveland since Nov. of 2006, faltering in its last nine tries at Quicken Loans Arena. You know it's a bad sign when Anderson Varejao was the best player on the floor -- he finished with 10 points, 16 rebounds, 4 steals, 4 assists and 2 blocks to lead the Cavaliers, who improved to 7-10.

In most of the Knicks' losses this season -- and they are starting to pile up against poor teams at an alarming rate -- the main culprit has been the offense. Coming into the season, many didn't think the Knicks would have trouble scoring. Mike D'Antoni's teams never have, and the team boasts two of the game's top scorers. But Wednesday's loss to the Cavaliers was a microcosm of how the entire season for the Knicks has gone.

A clearly banged up Carmelo Anthony had just 15 points, while Amare Stoudemire led the team with 19. As a team, the Knicks shot just 42 percent, including an abysmal 3-for-20 from 3-point range. There are times when the Knicks shoot too often from beyond the arc, but this wasn't one of those times. Sure, Jared Jeffries and Stoudemire don't need to be lining up from distance, but Anthony misfired on all three of his tries and Toney Douglas, a 36 percentcareer 3-point shooter, made just two of his eight. For the season, the Knicks are hitting just 30 percent of their shots from 3-point distance, which is in the bottom third of the league. Additionally, New York has struggled with ball security all year long. They had 22 more turnovers on Wednesday, and their 284 ranks third-most in the entire NBA. Those are two big reasons that New York is where it is at this point in the season.

There are times when shots aren't falling and you simply need to bear down and win on effort and hustle plays. D'Antoni has not gotten maximum effort out of all of his players this year, and as the losses keep coming, one has to wonder how much longer he has to try and turn things around. Yes, it is ultimately on the players to step up, and professional athletes shouldn't need pep talks to play their hardest. But its common in sports for a coach's voice to become white noise in a locker room. Despite there being some new faces on the Knicks, it's worth considering that it has gotten to that point with D'Antoni.

It doesn't get easier for the Knicks, as they travel to Miami on Friday night for a date with the Heat.

Knicks Vs. Bobcats Final Score: New York Cruises Past Hapless Charlotte, 111-78

The New York Knicks got off a six-game losing schneid, defeating a struggling Charlotte Bobcats squad, 111-78, on Tuesday night. Though the win won't save the season nor stop the calls for Mike D'Antoni's job, it will hopefully kickoff a wave of positive momentum to help bring the Knicks back to .500 on the season.

The Knicks were spurred along by a monster game from center Tyson Chandler, who shot 9-for-10 from the field for 20 points and hauled in 17 rebounds--all through the first three quarter of the game. Amare Stoudemire and Landry Fields contributed 18 points each, helping New York to 50 percent shooting from the floor for the game despite Carmelo Anthony's 0-for-7 performance. Anthony had just one point on the night, easily a season low, but did contribute 11 rebounds.

The Bobcats shot just 33 percent for the game. Kemba Walker led the team with 22 points on 7-for-17 from the field. Charlotte was not helped by 1-for-9 and 1-for-6 performances from Tyrus Thomas and Boris Diaw, respectively, nor a 53-33 rebounding advantage for New York.

Carmelo Anthony 'Too Obsessed With His Points', According To Source

The New York Knicks' latest six-game losing streak has many fans and experts pointing fingers at players and head coach Mike D’Antoni, especially. However, the biggest issue maybe star forwards Carmelo Anthony's obsession with his points total, says a source familiar with the situation who spoke to the New York Post's Mike Berman Monday.

"Maybe I should take the blame for the games we’re losing,’’ Anthony said to Berman. "Coach does run the offense through me. I’ll take the blame. It’s obvious I’m beat up. I don’t want to use that as any excuse. Maybe it’s time to revaluate everything, reevaluate my body, sit with the trainers, see what’s going on.’’

The source also told Berman that forward Amare Stoudemire is "too concerned with Anthony taking over the team".

"We as a team need to do a better job getting Amar’e the ball,’’ Anthony admitted. "I have the ball in my hands. Maybe it’s on me. Maybe I have to give him the ball a little more, help him out with that. We’ll talk probably [today] and try to figure it out together. If I’m doing too much, I want him to tell me. I want the guys on the team to tell me if I’m doing too much.’’

The Knicks try and snap their current six-game skid Tuesday night, as they host the Charlotte Bobcats (7:30 p.m. on MSG).

Knicks Vs. Nuggets Final Score: Nuggets Outlast Knicks, 119-114, In Double Overtime

Forty eight minutes wasn't enough time to settle the score between the New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets on Saturday night, and neither was just one overtime. The Nuggets outlasted the Knicks 119-114 in double overtime, behind 37 points from former Knick Danilo Gallinari.

Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points for the Knicks, but missed 20 of his 30 shots and all but one of his three point attempts. Amare Stoudemire had a similarly-off night, posting just 12 points, six shy of his season average.

Rookie PG Iman Shumpert was again a bright spot for the Knicks, as he played 38 minutes and contributed 18 points coupled with seven assists.

In the end, however, it was the Knicks inability to contain Gallinari that proved the difference. The Italian forward -- who was part of the package New York sent to Denver in exchange for Anthony last season -- nailed 18 of his 20 free throw attempts, and needed just 19 field-goal attempts to score his 37 points.

The Knicks drop to 3-6 at Madison Square Garden on the season, and will next play Tuesday night in Charlotte against the Bobcats.

Suns 91, Knicks 88: Knicks' Slide Continues With Brutal Loss To Suns

Something tells us that one of the biggest New York Giants fans this NFL postseason is New York Knicks head coach Mike D’Antoni. With Big Blue’s playoff run in progress, the bloodthirsty New York media has something more important to concentrate on than the floundering Knicks, who continue to play poorly as the losses pile up. On Wednesday, New York fell at home to the Phoenix Suns, 91-88, in another brutal offensive performance for a team boasting two of the game’s great scorers.

The Knicks, who fell to an unimpressive 6-8 (and 3-4 at home) were burned by 26 points and 11 assists from the type of player they sorely lack, the ageless Steve Nash. Nash remains able to run a solid offense with a forgettable cast of characters, while the Knicks continue to be one of the worst offensive teams in the league, even with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire. The two Knicks’ stars haven’t been able to get on the same page and put together a good combined performance just about all year, and Wednesday was no different. The two combined for 12-of-44 shooting, with Anthony making just 5-of-22 attempts for 12 points. Stoudemire finished with a team-high 23 points, but made just seven field goals.

It was a close game throughout, and the only player keeping the Suns from truly pulling away in the last few minutes was Iman Shumpert. He hit four huge shots down the stretch including two three pointers to keep the Knicks in striking distance. But a wacky three-pointer by Shannon Brown — that caromed off the rim and backboard before rattling in — was the real dagger, putting the Suns up 85-80 with 35 seconds left. One of Shumpert’s threes followed, but Nash was able to salt the game away, scoring the Suns’ final six points from the free throw line.

As a team, the Knicks shot a dismal 37 percent as their team-wide offensive slide continued. A telltale sign of how far the Knicks are from being an elite team in the Eastern Conference is that the Suns were in the second game of a back-to-back. On Tuesday, the Suns were blown out by the Chicago Bulls, who were without their best player and reigning league MVP Derrick Rose. The Knicks, with their top two players playing 38 minutes apiece, were a few desperate shots from a rookie away from losing going away on their home floor to that same Suns team.

Baron Davis can’t get healthy soon enough, but it can certainly be viewed as a major slight that the Knicks are pining their hopes on an oft-injured, past-his-prime Davis to save their season. It’s becoming increasingly clear that the D’Antoni-Stoudemire-Anthony tandem just isn’t working out. Anthony and Stoudemire are signed to huge contracts and are the faces of the franchise. They’re not going anywhere. If things don’t change soon, the team will need a shakeup, and D’Antoni will be the top candidate to go.

Knicks Vs. Thunder Final Score: Kevin Durant Nets 28 As Oklahoma City Routs New York

Behind 28 points from Kevin Durant and 24 from James Harden Saturday night the Oklahoma City Thunder routed the New York Knicks, 104-92, in a inter-conference contest at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, OK Saturday night. Point guard Russell Westbrook tallied 21 points, eight rebounds and eight for the Thunder, while the Carmelo Anthony-less Knicks trailed by as many as 30 points.

Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler and Toney Douglas all scored a team-best 14 points for the Knicks, who trailed by 30 near the end of the third quarter before the Thunder began to pull their starters, who didn't play a single minute in the the fourth quarter. Chandler added a team-best seven rebounds.

New York is back in action Monday when the Knicks host the Orlando Magic in an Eastern Conference match up. The contest begins a string of four straight homes games for the Knicks.

Knicks Vs. Bobcats: New York Tries For Third Straight Victory

The New York Knicks will be looking to avenge a loss while trying to extended their current winning streak to three games Monday, as they host the Charlotte Bobcats in a Eastern Conference contest at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks (4-4) lost to the Bobcats (2-6) less than a week ago, 118-110, but since then have rallied off two straight victories, including a dominating effort against the Detroit Pistons Saturday.


Knicks 103, Pistons 80: Amare Stoudemire Leads New York Rout


New York is trying to turn around its current struggles at home, which feature losses in two of its first three games. Forward Carmelo Anthony will also be looking for a rebound effort after netting a season-low 13 points Saturday.

Meanwhile, Charlotte has lost two straight since beating New York. The latest loss came against the Indiana Pacers, 99-77, on Saturday.

Point guard D.J. Augustine leads the Bobcats in scoring with 17.2 points per game, but every Knicks fan will be looking forward to New York native, rookie guard Kemba Walker, return to the Big Apple for the second time in less than a week.

Knicks 103, Pistons 80: Amare Stoudemire Leads New York Rout

Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) - Amare Stoudemire scored 22 points and pulled down eight rebounds, as the New York Knicks stepped up defensively and pounded the Detroit Pistons, 103-80, to post consecutive wins for the first time this season.

Mike Bibby came off the bench for 16 points and Carmelo Anthony chipped in 13 with seven assists for the Knicks, who were coming off a three-point victory at Washington on Friday. Tyson Chandler ended with 10 points, nine boards and had three of his team's 12 steals.

"Good offense is moving the ball and Amare started in the first half by moving the ball and pushing the ball out a couple times on drives that would set up people," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said. "As long as the players are willing, which they are, then we'll eventually get a stop."

Brandon Knight had 19 points for the injury-plagued Pistons, who lost their third in a row. Ben Gordon had 12 points, but accounted for nine of his team's 21 turnovers that led to 23 New York points.

The Pistons, who played without Austin Daye (sore right ankle), Rodney Stuckey (sore groin) and Charlie Villanueva (sore right ankle), shot 37.2 percent from the floor.

The big difference in Saturday night's game was the second quarter, when the Knicks held a 39-18 scoring advantage. The visitors sizzled from the field by going 15-for-23 in the period, compared to a 5-of-15 performance for the Pistons.

Knicks Vs. Pistons: New York Shooting For Second Straight

(Sports Network) - Carmelo Anthony is the NBA's second-leading scorer and looks to remain hot tonight, when the New York Knicks take on the Detroit Pistons from The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Anthony is currently battling a sore hip and is averaging 29.1 points on the season. Miami's LeBron James leads the league with 29.9 ppg.

New York got 37 points from Anthony in Friday's 99-96 victory over the winless Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center. Anthony, who is averaging 35 points over the past three games, buried a three-pointer with 15.5 seconds to go to keep the Wizards at bay, while Amare Stoudemire recorded a double-double with 23 points and 12 boards for New York, which ended a two-game slide and won for the third time this season (3-4).

"We were down 16, but we were not going to not play hard," said Stoudemire. "In the second quarter we took it upon ourselves to try and get the energy going and we did that."

Tyson Chandler had 12 points and 15 rebounds for New York.

Detroit has lost two in a row and fell to 2-5 on the young season following last night's 96-73 loss at Philadelphia in its home opener.

The Pistons, playing without guards Ben Gordon and Rodney Stuckey, were led by Greg Monroe's season high-tying 22 points. They fell to 0-3 on the road this season. Brandon Knight, Jason Maxiell and Will Bynum had 10 points apiece.

"They have one of the top three benches in the league," said Pistons coach Lawrence Frank. "[Thaddeus] Young is game changer and Lou [Williams] can score with anyone. It's gone from good to great with Evan [Turner's] improvement."

Gordon (personal) and Stuckey (groin) are questionable for Saturday. Gordon is averaging a team-high 16.2 points per game.

New York won two of three meetings with Detroit last season and has taken seven of the past 10 matchups between the teams. The Knicks, however, have lost 13 of the past 17 games at The Palace. Pistons guard Tayshaun Prince averaged 21.0 points in three games against the Knicks last season, while Stoudemire posted 30.0 points and 11.0 rebounds in those three games.
