After yesterday’s exciting victory over the Atlanta Hawks, 114-113, the team improved their record to 34-30 with only two games left in the season.
The Knicks still need to worry about falling in the standings since they are only a half a game ahead of the 76ers for the seventh spot in the East, but they can still improve to sixth if they win their two remaining games and the Orlando Magic lose theirs.
Regardless of how the remainder of the season plays out, the Knicks will have a very tough matchup in the first round of the playoffs, especially without Jeremy Lin.
The Knicks had an extremely up-and-down season, but they seem to be peaking at the right time under coach Mike Woodson, who is 15-6 since taking over as head coach.
Here are my grades and awards for the team this season.
