They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.
After Linsanity prematurely bloomed in early February and the Knicks won seven straight—including a Lin-peak of 38 points in a defeat of the L.A. Lakers—a little frost swept in to remind Knicks fans of reality. New York finished the month 3-3.
March rolled in like a nor’easter and the Knicks found themselves pelted with losses, dropping their first six games of the month. In the tumult, Mike D’Antoni was swept away.
But the schedule relented and with Mike Woodson manning the front, the Knicks stormed back, subduing March and going 7-1.
