The suddenly amazing New York Knicks have posted 11 wins in a row out of nowhere, tied for the fourth-longest streak in franchise history. They look better now than during their hot start, which bodes well for the playoffs.
One more victory will give them 12—the third-longest win streak in Knicks history.
But how many games did the Knicks’ longest streak last? And the second longest? Here’s a hint: They are both achievable this season.
And once playoff seedings lock up, surely Mike Woodson won’t want to gas his players. But that No. 2 seed might be at stake right down to the final game, which could see New York go all out for the duration.
What’s the big deal about win streaks anyway? As you’ll see, they’re a pretty good indicator of a long postseason and may even be harbingers of a future title.
