Alarming Issues New York Knicks Must Correct Before 2013 Playoffs Begin
USA TODAY Sports

The New York Knicks have pulled back from the cliff, posting a four-game winning streak after a disastrous trip out West. In the process, they’ve clinched their predestined 2013 playoff spot.

This is probably a good time for a reality check. The Knicks are also posting a myriad of issues that are destined to derail New York’s postseason train and may even meddle with its seeding.

The Knicks don’t deserve a dressing down. They’ve played their best basketball since the 1996-97 season and are still within striking distance (a half-game) of fulfilling the most optimistic (and realistic) preseason prophecies—a No. 2 seed.

But if the team’s recurring problems are not fixed, it’s going to be one-and-done one more time for New York, home-court advantage or not.

Luckily for the Knicks (or maybe unluckily), they get a tune-up—an opportunity to work out the kinks—with 10 tough games against playoff teams (out of 14) down the stretch.
