10 Things We Want to See from the NY Knicks in 2014
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports
The Knicks should give Tim Hardaway Jr. a much more serious look over the next few months.

The New York Knicks' 2013 slate of games has, mercifully, come to an end. At a miserable 9-21, they're the second-worst team in a brutally terrible Eastern Conference, and you can count the amount of "good" games they've played on one hand. 

Through all the blowouts, in-house drama, trade rumors and injuries, the Knicks have supplied fans with literally nothing encouraging thus far. Their only "streak" of impressive play lasted for two games, against the Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets—who are a combined 20-40—and all the good feelings it brought about were wiped away after a 40-point home loss to the Boston Celtics that immediately ensued. 

Two of the team's wins have come against the Milwaukee Bucks—currently the lone team worse than New York in the East—including one bout that took two overtime periods to decide. They've beaten the Charlotte Bobcats, barely skated past the Derrick Rose-less Chicago Bulls, won in Orlando despite losing Carmelo Anthony for an undisclosed period, and upset the Atlanta Hawks twice.

Those are all the times the Knicks have scored more points than their opponent this season.

Times are bad now, but part of last season's winning nucleus is still in place. With a few tweaks after the calendar flips, New York could still salvage a decent playoff standing come April. 

And if not? Well, there's not much to look forward to in the near future—that much is certain.
