The Knicks played a great game, but could not execute down the stretch, fall to the Wizards 113-110 _ The Knicks certainly built on last nights win and showed a mighty amount in tonights battle with the Wizards. The Knicks played good consistant basketball like last night, heading into the half up 1. The third quarter was treterous as the Knicks fell behind by 14. Not only did they fail to give up, but they pounded the Wizards in what became a really exciting fourth quarter. Carmelo Anthong was unstoppable, he set the Knicks all time record for most points in a quarter and carried the guys all the way through the fourth. In the last minute, the Knicks were down 1 with posession and a chance to take the lead. Derrick Rose got stuffed on a layup but got his own rebound and put it in for a layup to give the Knicks the lead. Wall came right back and drove, he drawed a foul and earned himself two free throws. The Knicks were unable to contain him all game. Wall cashed in both from the line and the Knicks had the ball down 1 again. Melo missed a jumper, Wall grabbed the rebound and took off on the fast break for a wide open dunk to put Washington up 3 (113-110) with 13.7 seconds left. The Knicks had 3 opportunity to take a three and no one attempted a shot attempt. Horrible execution cost the Knicks this game. _ Top Performers: Melo: 34pts, 10reb, 2ast Rose: 20pts, 5reb, 2ast KO: 14pts, 8reb, 3ast KP: 15pts, 5reb, 3ast _ The Knicks get a day off before hosting the Suns, Saturday 1/21 at 7:30PM EST! _ #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #NYK #TheMecca #GoKnicks

KNICKS WIN! The shorthanded Knicks put in one of their best performances of the season as they stun the third seeded Boston Celtics, 117-106! _ The Knicks were without their second threat on offense in KP and one of their top rebounders in Jo tonight. That did not stop the Knicks from playing an impressive brand of basketball. While the Knicks gave up a lot of points, the score doesn't do justice to their defensive play. The Knicks played with hustle, majorly out-rebounding the C's, and doing a great job contesting shots. The Knickerbockers gained momentum going into the second quarter as they finished the first quarter by hitting their last six shots from the field. The Knicks second unit came out and held this momentum as they placed tenacious defense and moved the ball around superbly which led to a tired and broken down Celtics defense. The Knicks bench outscored the Celtics bench and the Knicks starters in the first half. The Knicks poured in a season high 63 points in the first half and came out in the second half playing the same type of spectacular basketball. The Celtics were able to stay close to the Knicks for the remainder of the game but the Knicks were able to lock down the fourth quarter king and hang on for a very impressive win! Melo was very quiet tonight as he only scored 13 points but it was great to see that the Knicks are able to play so well without their superstar on the court. This is exactly what the guys needed as a confidence booster and hopefully they can carry this momentum moving forward! _ Top performances: Kuz: 17pts, 6reb, 2ast Rose: 30pts, 10reb, 5ast Willy: 17pts, 10reb, 0ast Lee: 9pts, 8reb, 7ast (Tied a career high) _ The Knicks head back home to face the Washington Wizards (21-19) tomorrow night at 8:00pm EST. at the Garden! _ #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #GoKnicks #TheMecca #NYK (📸 via @nyknickstimes)

Carmelo Anthony "reaffirmed his desire to stay with the Knicks" in his meeting today with Phil Jackson. _ This makes it difficult for the Knicks to deal Melo as this most likely means he will not waive his no trade clause. #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #GoKnicks #TheMecca #NYK

"Why Knicks fans should actually want to lose the rest of the 2017 season, not win" _ Following another embarrassing loss today, the Knicks playoff chances are just fading farther away. The Knicks current situation is defenitley disappointing, but is it really so bad for Knicks fans as a whole? Besides drafting Porzingis, Knicks fans have not been happy with Phil Jackson, or ownership. Losing is tough, but unfortunatley that is how a team builds up a core to eventually have championship potential. Carmelo Anthony came out today and made a provokotive statement about his future with the team, which is just making this situation more and more realistic. If the Knicks want to tank, 2017 is the year to do it. This years draft class is arguably deeper as a whole than the 03 class, with multiple prospects battling for that #1 spot, and the top 5 totally up in the air. With special names like Markelle Fultz, Dennis Smith JR, Lonzo Ball, D'arron Fox, Malik Monk, Jonathan Isaac, Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum, and Josh Jackson, the Knicks are bound to get a potential second franchise player. If the Knicks could pull off a blockbuster trade for Anthony that included getting a stockpile of picks, such as Boston did, the Knicks will find themselves at the beginning of a dynasty. New York will see talent they have not seen since the Ewing days, and hopes for a championship will actually become a reality, not just a joke. The Knicks attempted to do just this when they drafted Kristaps, and look what happend... New York recieved a young, unique star dedicated to the franchise. Now think if the Front Office did this again, and the year after, and the year after that, the Knicks would develop a young, talented, special core who would grow together and learn how to win with one another. The only problem was, the Knicks instantly took a win now approach directly after the successful pick. A rebuild is a multi year process, and it has to happen now. If you as a fan, want to keep taking a win now approach, just keep on expecting this nonsense every season repeatedly. _ I really want to hear your thoughts! Let us know! _ #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #NYK #TheMecca #GoKnicks

"If they feel like my time in New York is over I guess that's a conversation we should have" - Carmelo Anthony Do you think this is an indication that Melo has lost faith in the Knicks organization and wants out? If this is so, Melo will likely be open to waiving his no trade clause, giving Phil a chance to make a blockbuster trade. #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #GoKnicks #TheMecca #NYK

The Knicks put in another unwatchable performance, lose 116-101 to the Raptors _ This was one of the worst games a fan could have ever watched. The Knicks were effortless and slow. The Raptors absolutely trounced them in transition as no Knick bothers to hustle and get back. Shots werent falling and defense was not being played. Absolutely miserable. The whole team looks divided, there is no sense of unity and togetherness. We cleaned things up majorily in the fourth quarter with the starters on the bench, so the score does not represent the Knicks being down 38 at one point and the overall dreadful game. Something needs to change, whether if its a change in practice, a change in the roster, or a change in the coaching, because no NBA team is suffering like this night in and night out. Knicks have now lost 10 of their last 12 games. _ Top Performers: Melo: 18pts, 1reb, 1ast Rose: 16pts, 2reb, 3ast Willy: 8pts, 13reb, 0ast BJ: 9pts, 2reb, 7ast _ Knicks play the Hawks tomorrow (MLK day) at 1:00PM EST _ #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #NYK #TheMecca #GoKnicks

There is a lot of basketball left to be played so we should not give up just yet. The Knicks put in a strong performance agains the Bulls yesterday for a much needed win. This horrible slump may have been a blessing in disguise, as it could have gotten a fairly new group of guys to learn how to lose with eachother, how to trust eachother, but most importantly how to grow with one another. Luckily for the Knicks, despite the disparraging play of late, they are still very well positioned for a playoff spot, but need to turn things around NOW. Use this win over Chicago as a spark and lets get rolling again. As fans, if we really want to see success we should not yell for major changes or put down players, we should be their number one source for motivation to keep pushing and give us winning basketball. If things do not work, that is life, but right now, it is way too early to judge this team. We lost the last 9 of 10 before yesterdays game, now lets win the next 9 of 10! _ LETS GO KNICKS! _ #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #NYK #TheMecca #GoKnicks

KNICKS WIN, 104-89! Haven't been able to say that very often in the past couple of weeks but the Knicks earned the win tonight. The Knicks actually played something called defense tonight. As I kept saying the offense has always been there, and if they just stepped up on d everything would come together. That's exactly what happened tonight as the Knicks hustled and out-rebounded the top rebounding team in the league! The Knicks also did a very impressive job of protecting the ball as they totaled only 1 turnover in the second half and ZERO in the fourth quarter! Hopefully this game can get us back on track and give us some momentum going forward! This is where the bullying ends! _ Top performances: Melo: 23pts, 9reb, 6ast DRose: 17 pts, 4reb, 3ast KOQ: 12pts, 11reb, 3ast Noah: 12pts, 15reb, 1ast Kuz: 19pts, 4reb, 1ast _ The Knicks look to build on their momentum when they head to Toronto to face the Raptors (25-13) on Sunday, 1/15, for a 3:00pm EST. battle! _ #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #GoKnicks #TheMecca #NYK

Update: Derrick Rose was at Knicks practice today and according to Ian Begley was in "good spirits." _ It has been confirmed that Rose's absence from last night's game was due to family issues. He also added that he didn't feel like picking up the phone when the organization called because he needed "space," which explains why the organization didn't know about his whereabouts. _ Whatever happened with regard to Roses' family (which is unclear) prayers go out to Rose and his family. _ Rose is in line to return to the court tomorrow when the Knicks go up against the 76ers! #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #GoKnicks #TheMecca #NYK

The Knicks turn in one of their worst performances of the season, fall to the below .500 Pelicans 110-96 _ There is no type of summary or analysis to describe the disgust that was felt by any Knick fan watching this game. If you were watching this we were wondering the same thing, what the hell has happend to this team over the past 10 games? Yet again, the Knicks were unrecognizable, and flat out pathetic in a very winnable game on their home floor. The final score does not describe the pain that came along with watching this game as the Knicks were down 29 and the reserves cut the deficit a little towards the end. There is absolutely no heart, no effort, and no spirit coming from anyone on this team right now. Carmelo Anthony was ejected in the third quarter because he didn't stop talking to the ref, which basically displayed his unwillingness to try and come out with a win, and his lack of faith in the rest of his teammates. Kyle O'quinn was quickly ejected after for what was ruled a flagrant 2 foul, another technique to try and leave the game because he obviously did simply just not feel like playing. Anthony Davis is an outstanding player, once in a generation, but no matter who you are, it is impossible to beat 5 guys by yourself if those 5 men are playing with effort. Davis wrecked the Knicks by himself tonight, and that is because a player of his caliber can easily torment a unit that is playing so miserably like the Knicks are. The Knicks are really running out of time. What seemed to be a season filled with excitement and longjevity is quickly spiraling downwards and out of control. Lets try and turn things around. _ Side Note: Rose missed game with Personal Issue. The reason is UNKNOWN right now. We will keep you updated _ There were no top performers to list tonight _ The Knicks look to put out the fire as they take on the Philedelphia 76ers Wednesday, 1/11 at 7:00PM EST! _ #Knicks #Knickstape #KnicksNation #NYK #TheMecca #GoKnicks
