New York Knicks: First Quarter Report Card

Heading into the 2010-11 NBA season, the New York Knicks team outlook was cloudy at best.

After bringing in Amar'e Stoudemire, failing to sign another marquee free agent, trading David Lee and basically retooling the majority of their roster, no one really knew what to expect from this club.

But now, after handily defeating the Toronto Raptors 116-99 on Sunday, December 5, the Knicks have finally completed the first quarter of their 2010-11 regular season.

With this last win, New York has won nine of its last 10 games, improving its record to 12-9—good for fifth best in the Eastern Conference and second in the Atlantic Division.

However, their standing is not as glamorous as it sounds, since, after all, they are only three games over .500, with 61 games remaining.

Furthermore, the Knicks have been extremely streaky thus far, as they have experienced both a six-game losing streak (including losses to some pretty awful teams) and their current 9-1 stretch.

Consequently, it's still difficult to predict what this team will be able do for the remainder of 2010-11.

Nevertheless, the following slides will describe what New York has done well, what they have done poorly, their first quarter grade and a projection for the remainder of the Knicks season.
