The New York Knicks have won five straight games to reach the .500 mark at 8-8. Some, however, might question the validity of the Knicks' streak since none of those victories came against teams with winning records. Today at Madison Square Garden, though, the Knicks host the 9-7 Atlanta Hawks. Thus, a chance for the Knicks to show their streak is not a fluke.
Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni is not thrilled when the quality of the winning streak is questioned.
