In New York sports, the sky is always falling, but the Knicks aren’t a complete lost cause. At least not yet.
The Knicks were victims of a beating by the Timberwolves (3-7), who were without three of their top guns, and New York’s “rock bottom” continues to become worse and worse.
The Knicks cut a deficit of over 20 points to single digits in the final minutes, but it was too little too late, as the Bucks held on for a four-point victory.

The Knicks have played against the top Eastern Conference teams this season, but there’s a whole other side to …
We all knew things would be rough in the early going for the Knicks, but looking towards the future, they’re in a win-win situation. Worst comes to worst, the Knicks lose 50-plus games again, but add a promising rookie to the mix. Best case scenario, they make the playoffs and give a morale boost to Carmelo …
