This time no Boston magic: Knicks drilled by Celtics

BOSTON — The Celtics are finally winning and not losing their memories. Thursday night’s game stood to be a dicey challenge for David Fizdale’s baby Knicks, making their TNT season debut two weeks after shocking the Celtics on Thanksgiving Eve in Boston. “It’s definitely a game that I remember, so as a competitor I can’t

Enes Kanter expressed doubts when NBA apologized for omission poster

Enes Kanter has accepted an apology from NBA Europe, but he didn’t sound too convincing. Kanter was livid at an NBA Europe Instagram promotional poster showing the NBA’s three Turkish players but not himself and called out the league on Twitter as “u scared little rats.’’ Kanter figured he was omitted because of his critical

Two coaches, franchise rights for different steps in the "process"

PHILADELPHIA — Technically, the two conversations were about the same subject matter. Brett Brown was in the media room at Wells Fargo Center just before 5:30 p.m. David Fizdale was out in the corridor a few minutes later, in front of a screen covered in Knicks logos. Brown spoke with a brogue that’s still pure

Marc Gasol reveals exactly what he thinks about David Fizdale

MEMPHIS — Grizzlies center Marc Gasol broke his silence on his former coach, David Fizdale, saying they cleared the air in a summer phone conversation, but probably won’t hug when the Knicks and Memphis square off Sunday at FedEx Forum. It’s the long-anticipated first meeting between Fizdale and Gasol since the coach was fired one

BOSTON — It was The Thanksgiving Eve Miracle. The Celtics — not the Knicks — turned into the turkeys. David Fizdale’s baby Knicks grew up on Wednesday, turned TD Garden into a cauldron of holiday jeers and hung on to beat the formidable Celtics, 117-109, to break a six-game losing streak. Who needs Kyrie Irving?

The part that’s hardest to get used to, honestly, is the sound the Garden makes at the end of these games. After a lifetime of watching Knicks teams and Rangers teams and even the occasional St. John’s teams get hammered whenever the last parts of games go awry, it’s jarring, really. Nobody boos. Yet, anyway.

If Terry Rozier enters the trading zone, the Knicks will be viable

If Celtics point guard Terry Rozier ever goes on the trading block, expect the Knicks to be one of the teams with interest. According to a report by The Athletic, seven teams are “monitoring’’ Rozier’s situation because of a perceived view he’s unhappy going back to the bench with Kyrie Irving healthy. Rozier was a standout

Tim Hardaway Jr., Frank Ntilikina lead Knicks past Hawks again

ATLANTA — The Knicks are unbeaten … against the hapless Hawks. The starting backcourt of slumping Frank Ntilikina and ailing Tim Hardaway Jr. teamed up to lead the Knicks past the Hawks 112-107 Wednesday at State Farm Arena. Hardaway returned after a one-game absence caused by a sore back to score 34 points against his

Questionable Call Spoils Knicks Rookie’s Big Night In 2OT Loss

Undrafted rookie Allonzo Trier made his first career start and put himself in position to be a last-second hero — twice. Trier succeeded neither time — in the final seconds of regulation nor in overtime as the Knicks (3-8) found another way to lose late on a suspect Emmanuel Mudiay foul with 0.2 seconds left

David Fizdale’s lineup twist Worked Perfectly

Five takeaways from the Knicks’ season-opening 126-107 victory over the hapless Hawks — a game in which the club led by 28 points early in the third quarter. 1. David Fizdale’s decision to start Frank Ntilikina at the swing position paid off, and the coach didn’t care an iota about Ntilikina’s modest five-point, one-assist, 2-of-7 showing.

WASHINGTON — Knicks rookie center Mitchell Robinson never fails to be in the middle of the battle. Amid his alley-oop dunks, rebounds and blocked shots, Robinson baited Washington veteran forward Markieff Morris into a first-half ejection and then a war of words afterward, during which he was called “a stupid-ass rookie.’’ Welcome to the Knicks’

Scrimmage shows Knicks rookies going in opposite directions

Kevin Knox looked right on schedule. Fellow Knicks rookie Mitchell Robinson looked as if he may be on his own schedule — as the project everyone figured he would be when the center was drafted in the second round. The Knicks staged an intrasquad blue-gray scrimmage at the Garden on Saturday before an estimated 7,000
