New York Knicks
Whichever players are on the court for the Knicks when they try to save their season Thursday night, coach Mike Woodson just wants them to shoot with confidence.
The Indiana Pacers finally figured it out.
Woodson was absolutely brutal. But let’s not spare the Knicks’ players from this little bloodbath.
Coach Mike Woodson says a team doctor is flying to Indianapolis before the game to examine Shumpert. He was hurt during an awkward, twisting landing in Game 3. This is the same knee that was operated on last May for a torn ligament.
The Knicks have looked downright anemic offensively and it doesn’t appear their bench is getting much better, literally.
Martin and Smith are ill and questionable for Tuesday night’s game in Indianapolis. Shumpert has a sore left knee but coach Mike Woodson says he probably will play in Game 4 against the Pacers.
John Schmeelk: The chances that coach Mike Woodson ends up looking good for this decision are slim to none.
Amar’e Stoudemire will likely be limited to about 10 to 15 minutes per game if he is able to return during New York’s playoff series against the Indiana Pacers.
Nobody ever really stops Carmelo Anthony. Not in his mind, anyway.
The NBA Conference Semi-Finals are upon us, and it’s time to share my predictions.
The Boston Celtics will play at the TD Garden for the first time Friday night since the events of the Boston Marathon.
The Celtics need a pick-me-up after losing the opening two games of their first-round playoff series against the Knicks. The city of Boston could use one, too, after a traumatic two weeks of bombings and manhunts and grieving.
