The New York Knicks haven’t won a title since 1973 and have been a mediocre team at best for the last decade, but right now they are the best team in the NBA. With a 16-5 record and number 1 in the East and with 2 blowouts to the defending NBA Champions Miami Heat at Home and in Miami. What has made the Knicks so good so far this season the Knicks have done it with hard nose defense ranking 10th in the NBA in scoring defense at 95.3 ppg and by making a lot of 3 pointers and a good bench.
Jason Kidd has become a good floor leader and has provided timely 3 pointers and good floor leadership Novak continues to hit 3’s when he is on the floor and Rasheed Wallace has given the Knicks valuable minutes and J.R Smith is one of the most explosive sixth men in the Nba and has already hit a game winning shot this season.
Carmelo Anthony is playing some of the best basketball of his career right now 27.7 ppg almost 7 rebounds per game hustling for loose balls and has even been playing good defense.
Can the Knicks keep this up and make a run in the playoffs that is the question will they continue hitting 3’s at the rate they are making them and will their rebounding problem or lack thereof come back to haunt them and how will Amare come back and fit in with a team that looks like it has a lot of chemistry with each other on the floor.
