The New York Knicks are 3-3 six games into the NBA season, and, as their record would indicate, they have been up and down.
Here are our friends at Posting and Toasting discussing Sunday's disheartening loss to Philadelphia at Madison Square Garden.
I don't know, guys. The Knicks certainly aren't as bad as they looked this afternoon, but it was a bummer of a bookend to an otherwise terrific weekend of basketball. Maybe you'll take solace in the fact that, despite the miserable shooting and spotty defense, this was a winnable game until the final minutes. Maybe it was those final minutes that really troubled you. All I know is that last year, this loss would have triggered a cascade of struggles in the ensuing week. Let's see if New York can nip this poor play in the bud and get back on their collective grizzies on Tuesday against the feisty Bucks. For now, the Knicks hang at .500.
The Knicks are at Milwaukee Tuesday to face the 2-5 Bucks, then they return to the Garden Wednesday to face the 4-2 Golden State Warriors. Ex-Knick David Lee is averaging 12 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. Friday the Knicks travel to face the Minnesota Timberwolves and Sunday they host the Houston Rockets.
Below are the Knicks' stats through six games.
