Knicks up by 9. Mid second

Kornet and Knox leading the way

Looks like Kanters days are numbered

Woah, digging the 2019 version of B.
Yeah, I think Kanter's on his way out, too.  
bceagle05 : 1/1/2019 10:08 pm : link
Not a moment too soon.
Mudiay and Timmy  
bceagle05 : 1/1/2019 10:10 pm : link
freeze out Knox after a hot start. Becoming a regular occurrence.
Kanter did have a decent half  
shyster : 1/1/2019 10:11 pm : link
Nine points, five boards in 10 minutes.

Trier looked the best he has since coming back.

Knicks did not score last 4:27 of half. They have not won in Denver in 12 years.

West coast offenses do suck

with kanter it is not about offense
i hate when hardaway brings the ball up  
nygiants16 : 1/1/2019 10:26 pm : link
either a turnover or a bad shot
Knox with a Dr J-like move there.  
Del Shofner : 1/1/2019 10:29 pm : link
He seems to be a natural scorer and should be the first option in this lineup.
Jokic hooks his elbow  
nygiants16 : 1/1/2019 10:35 pm : link
on every single post up
Kanter doesn't box out  
Del Shofner : 1/1/2019 10:41 pm : link
twice in a row.
Knox plays a ton of minutes.  
bceagle05 : 1/1/2019 10:49 pm : link
Not that I'm complaining, but that may explain some of the slow finishes.
kanter is such a blackhole  
nygiants16 : 1/1/2019 10:53 pm : link
..
Malik Beasley - what a great NBA name.  
bceagle05 : 1/1/2019 10:58 pm : link
.
hardaway is a fucking moron  
nygiants16 : 1/1/2019 11:02 pm : link
he leaves a 3 point shooter who is hot to go double miles plumlee..

Wasn't being sarcastic, Earl. Hope you're doing well.
Hardaway is such a loser as a player  
nygiants16 : 1/1/2019 11:12 pm : link
he just always makes the wrong play down the stretch
Hard to believe  
bceagle05 : 1/1/2019 11:17 pm : link
a flabby-armed, slow-footed big man like Jokic can thrive in today's NBA, but he's damn good.

he is damn good but he gets away with a lot, he is damn good at using his elbows and pushing off and the refs miss it every time...

he is like the tall old guy at the park who cant move anymore but still has skills
Nice loss for the tank  
Anakim : 1/1/2019 11:27 pm : link
But can we please unload some of this dead weight? Kanter, THJ, Lance Thomas, Courtney Lee...Let them go to contenders.

hopefully kanter asks for a trade..

no reason to trade lance...

lee and hardaway absolutrly need to be traded
If the Knicks were trying to win,  
JustaDiscussion : 1/1/2019 11:33 pm : link
I'd be frustrated by Fiz's line-up management. Obviously he knows way more about basketball than I do, but regardless, I cannot for the life of me understand what he is doing late in some of these games.

It seems like Mudiay just doesn't play well in Denver. How many times has Timmy been stripped on a key play late in a game? The Knicks should lie to Knox and tell him it's the first quarter throughout the game.

That all said, I guess it's easy to whine during a rebuilding year. Hopefully the young guys keep improving.

I'm guessing no one wants their contracts. THJ in particular.
Knox's ability to contribute early  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 1/2/2019 7:56 am : link
but only early is strange. The ball just doesn't seem to find him as the game goes on. I am not sure why.

I think they wait for February, but given the Bulls apparent preference for guys who don't play defense and like to chuck up a TON of 3s, Hardaway for Parker makes a ton of sense for both teams.

Chicago gets their long term "2/3" combo guy and the Knicks get a big expiring (remember that Parker's contract isn't really a 2 year deal, but is a one year deal with a team opt out).
I don't think there's anyway the Bulls deal Parker for Hardaway  
Strahan91 : 1/2/2019 10:22 am : link
straight up without the Knicks including a future first. They structured the Parker deal the way that they did to maximize cap space moving forward so I don't see why they would forego it for Tim Hardaway Jr of all players. Especially since LaVine is locked in for the foreseeable future at the 2.

A lot of good it did them last year. They had cap space they couldn't give away- and were only able to get Parker to bite when no one else would give Parker a deal.

I'm not saying they'll be able to put it to use but every couple of years it seems like Chicago is big game hunting in FA. Usually to fall short but they do go for it.
Kanter had a sit-down with Perry recently.  
bceagle05 : 1/2/2019 12:23 pm : link
No trade request, but I doubt Kanter finishes the season here, one way or another. Seems like we're headed toward a divorce.
They're on different roads  
Ten Ton Hammer : 1/2/2019 12:28 pm : link
He's playing for his next contract, and that leads to things that run counter to a team trying to build a foundation.
Bondy has gone full Isola Mode since Mills barred him from a presser.  
bceagle05 : 1/2/2019 1:22 pm : link

Now he's pushing the narrative that KP is gonna force his way out.
Quote:
At this point, the question isn’t just whether the Knicks should offer Porzingis a max contract but also whether he should sign one. Because the word on Porzingis is that he loves New York but is skeptical about the Knicks. And who wouldn’t be?

The team has been an awful mess for his entirety of the Latvian’s NBA career, shuffling in four coaches over four seasons with Mills representing the constant as either GM or president.

The Knicks’ record since Porzingis tore his ACL is 15-51, an indictment on the talent — or lack thereof — assembled by Mills. The prime of a player’s career lasts about 10 years. Porzingis has already wasted 1/3 of it on a team that hasn’t sniffed the playoffs.

What about Frank and TH Jr for Parker? Don't really want to move frank but if it means ridding us of TH Jr I would consider it
