The New York Knicks season has been turbulent to say the least and there are a variety of positives and negatives to consider as the Knickerbockers are getting ready for the playoffs.
One needs only to take a look at the past month’s play to see what I am talking about. The Knicks were on a four game losing streak, but they snapped out of it and are currently enjoying the season’s longest winning streak.
The Knicks are first in the Atlantic division, five games ahead of the Brooklyn Nets, and look poised to take the division crown for the first time since 1994.
The team has already clinched a playoff spot and now it is simply a question of where the Knicks end up in the standings and who they play in the first round of the playoff.
What will be the pillars the Knicks can hold on to when every game becomes do or die? What can doom the Knicks’ title hopes and keep the streak of 40 seasons without a championship going?
