The New York Knicks struggles this season are becoming all too familiar as they have only won 16 games with 39 remaining. Losing to less talented rosters around the league has to stop if they plan on sneaking into the playoffs. It seemed as though the Knicks were starting to finally become a synchronized team by winning five straight games in the beginning of January, but that was just a tease for many basketball viewers.
The Knicks followed up their five game win streak with a five game losing streak to
the Bobcats, and 76ers. More importantly a twenty-three point shellacking
to the Nets happened on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on national television
on their home court.
This past Friday though, the Knicks took down the Kemba Walker less Bobcats
at Madison Square Garden by 29 points. Carmelo Anthony set the Knicks
regular season single game record with 62 points, while also setting the
new mark for the most points scored by anyone at MSG. New York won 125-96.
The Knicks next victims were the Los Angeles Lakers edging them at home as well 110-103 on Sunday.
The Knickerbockers will be playing the Celtics and the Cavaliers during the
week and look to extend their winning streak to five as they look to
continue to beat lower competition. The way the season has went, it’s
quite possible that they could lose as well, but they should at least win
one of these next two.
