The Knicks went the entire month of November without a home win and started December the same way. New York lost its ninth straight game and seventh in a row at Madison Square Garden in a tough 103-99 setback to New Orleans on Sunday night.
For a team that was supposed to be at least on the fringe of contention in the Eastern Conference, it’s almost unfathomable that the Knicks are 3-13. Coach Mike Woodson told reporters before the game that the team lacked identity and mentioned how important the three-ball was in today’s NBA.
So the Knicks took 35 3-pointers against the Pelicans. Cause and effect? Perhaps, but the team got way too three-happy in the fourth quarter and ended up missing 10 of its last 12 shots from the arc.
