The All-Star break is upon us, and the New York Knicks are looking better than they have in years.
The Knicks’ 32-18 record is good enough for second place in the Eastern conference, three-and-a-half games behind the Miami Heat. If the Knickerbockers can stay the course, they’ll win their first division title since Patrick Ewing patrolled the paint at the Garden.
While sports fans in New York are demanding to a fault, few would have expected the Knicks to jump out of the gate the way they did.
The Knicks won their first six games of the season, and by the time they faced off against the Lakers on Christmas Day, their record was 20-7.
However, things have not gone as smoothly for the past two months. The Knicks are only 12-11 since Christmas Day (including the loss to the Lakers), and they desperately need the break to adjust.
Knicks fans will have to put their faith in head coach Mike Woodson, who defiantly told ESPN that his team still has a shot to win the title.
Let’s take a look back and grade the New York Knicks' 2012-13 season so far.
