Season On The Line For Knicks In Last Few Games
The New York Knicks are back on the east coast after their five game west coast trip had ended. They finished the trip going 3-2. The two loses were by blown out fashion to the Lakers and Suns by a combined 55 points. The most impressive win was against Steph Curry and the Warriors 89-84.
The Knicks were playing host to their cross town rivals, the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night. The Nets have already clinched a spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs but would still like to battle Toronto for the division title. The game was back and forth in the first quarter but a late flurry that ended with a Hardaway 3-pointer gave the Knicks a nine point lead and they never looked back.
New York was able to rest their starters and completed a 110-81 victory.
The Knicks have now jumped ahead of Atlanta for the 8th seed by percentage points. The Hawks have two games in hand in which they will play next week as the Knicks have a few days off.
The Knicks will be hosts to the playoff bound Wizards Friday night before traveling to Miami for a Sunday afternoon game against Lebron James and the Heat.
This weekend the Hawks will play the Cavaliers who are also still playing for a chance to sneak into the 8th seed and then the Pacers who are now chasing the Heat.
If the Knicks commitment on the defensive end continues as we’ll as there hot shooting, there chances to make the playoffs seem to possible be a reality.
