Turning point for Knicks Season?
 
I've been extremely encouraged by the recent Knick play over the past 7 games. They've been very competitive in each game and their losses could have easily been wins.

They're finally healthy and the chemistry and consistency has much improved.

Could this be the turning point to a winning percentage for the rest of the season?

They would have to go 18 wins & 12 losses for the rest of the season to get to the .500 mark. It looks like they can!

But is that good enough for a playoff berth?

I could see them being 18-12 and reaching .500, and that is actually good enough probably to make the playoffs in the East.

To picture the Knicks being ahead of the Nets (regardless of what they do if trades go down) and the Raptors, is by a long shot.

The Knicks are playing better now I agree, but they need a solid 8 man rotation, and they need to play better defense.

Channing Frye was doing good at one point yesterday shooting jumpers all over the place, up until Ronny F*N' Turiaf did a spin move on him that even I could of stopped, and then Thomas just yanked him out of the game!!

The only way I see us being a better team is if we start playing with fire every single game, communicate on defense, and use the fundamentals of basketball.

This is hard to imagine however. :rolleyes:

the thing i like most about this team is that they dont quit. isiah is bringing a diffferent mentality to this team. last year when they were down quite frankly they quit and would get blown out by 30. now when they are down they battle back. and marbury is playin really good defense. thats y he isnt that agressive he's focusing most of his time on the defensive end and he is doin a great job. people thought he could never be a team player, people thought he was selfish. i always thought that was bullsh*t.
