Take A Seat, Phil – Knicks Win Sixth Straight
Yeah, yeah – We all know Phil Jackson is being introduced to the Knicks front office on Tuesday morning as that’s swarmed headlines for the last week.
But don’t look now – the actual team is playing better,much better.
New York won their sixth game in a row on Saturday, a season-high.
Yes, it was against the worst team in the NBA, the Bucks, but it’s the same Milwaukee team the Knicks lost to a month and a half ago.
Several other things to be excited about during this winning streak:
– Double Figs: The Knicks had five players to score at least 14 points on Saturday. The depth of this team has been a welcomed addition during this streak.
– Protect Home: New York’s won their last six games at Madison Square Garden. They were so successful last year because they won on their court.
– Defense: The Knicks are out-rebounding their opponents by a large margin during this streak. They’re playing quick and aggressive defense and attacking the boards.
The Knicks are three games back of the Atlanta Hawks for the 8th and final playoff seed in the East with 15 games to go.
