The New York Knicks enter the week having won three games in a row since Mike D'Antoni resigned, all of them coming by double digits. Whether that's fair to the former head coach can be debated. What is less debatable is that this week has the potential to be a huge one for New York's playoff chances.
The Knicks will play four games in the next five days: two on the road and two at Madison Square Garden. Three of those games are very winnable. New York plays host to the 15-30 Toronto Raptors on Tuesday before a rematch in Canada on Friday. On Saturday, they head back to Manhattan to host the 16-29 Detroit Pistons.
Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers will be a little more difficult. The Sixers are still 4.5 games ahead of the Knicks in the Atlantic Division despite losing three of their last four. The Knicks will hit the road for that contest, which will be televised in primetime Wednesday on ESPN.
Here's the complete Knicks schedule with TV/Radio information:
Tuesday, 3/20: Knicks vs. Raptors (7:30 p.m. ET, TV/Radio: MSG)
Wednesday, 3/21: Knicks @ 76ers (7 p.m. ET, TV/Radio: MSG/ESPN)
Friday, 3/23: Knicks @ Raptors (7 p.m. ET, TV/Radio: MSG)
Saturday, 3/24: Knicks vs. Pistons (7:30 p.m. ET, TV/Radio: MSG)
