A rough start to the season gets even rougher for the Knicks, who face four more playoff teams this week.
Nobody thought the Knicks were going to be NBA champions this season, but nobody though they were going to be one of the worst teams in the league either. Although their record is ugly right now, the New York made it clear that the 10-game losing streak Knicks are a team of the past.
Every now and then, the Turn On The Knicks staff will debate an issue surrounding the team here in Roundtable Format. Make sure to give everybody a follow on Twitter, and follow the site right here. Let us know if you agree/disagree. What are your first round playoff predictions?
The New York Knicks are out of playoff contention, but will look to finish strong with two games left in the disappointing 2013-14 season.
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.
It’s not playoff time yet, but with the Knicks needing every win they can get down the stretch, it might as well be. If Toronto takes care of the New York tomorrow, it won’t be the first time that the team is sent packing by the Raptors.
Not all hope is lost for New York’s playoffs chances, but they’re going to need to run the table and bank on Atlanta losses if they want to get in. Here’s what both teams have going on this week.
The Toronto Raptors completed a home-and-home sweep of the New York Knicks, defeating them by a score of 115-100 on Saturday night.
