Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden, St. John's faced precisely the kind of game they needed to win to maintain their N.C.A.A. tournament hopes.
Next weekend, the New York Knicks will have a significant contingent on hand to participate in the N.B.A.'s All Star weekend.
Observed purely from a long-term perspective, the Brooklyn Nets should probably look to trade Andray Blatche. And rumor has it that they are.

For the New York Knicks, Wednesday night's game against the Washington Wizards followed a familiar pattern.
A year ago Monday, Jeremy Lin came off the bench to rally the Knicks and shock the Nets with an elite performance.
If the Brooklyn Nets intend to make any kind of playoff run, they're going to need to close out games like Tuesday night's matchup at the Barclays Center against a compromised Los Angeles Lakers team.

The New York Knicks completed a five-game homestand on Monday night with a resounding 99-85 defeat of the Detroit Pistons. The Knicks built an early 20-point lead and never looked back against one of the weaker teams in the Eastern Conference.
