A month ago Phil Jackson was brought into the position of President of the New York Knicks in order to revitalize a franchise under great scrutiny after a dismal 2013-2014 season. The first step to fixing this team has been taken, as head coach Mike Woodson has been fired along with the rest of his …
Every week, Dave Nowinski will be taking a look at the team’s coaching performance. There’s not too much left to be said about Mike Woodson’s season, but Dave will also keep us updated on what’s sure to be a transformative offseason. Here’s how Woody fared last week:

The New York Knicks defeated the playoff bound Toronto Raptors to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Unfortunately the Brooklyn Nets did the Knicks no favors by losing at home to the Atlanta Hawks, who now hold a two game lead in the race for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Sixers came close to pulling off the upset in Atlanta, but the Hawks eventually took control, making this a must-win for New York’s playoffs hopes.

The New York Knicks lost to the Detroit Pistons on the road, recording their seventh straight loss. The Knicks now sit 19 games under .500 and their playoff chances are fading away day-by-day.
