When the Knicks took a look at the schedule and saw an eight game home stand they surely must have figured it would be a catalyst to turning their fortunes around. After all, eight game home stretches don’t come around very often in the NBA, if ever. Now they’ll enter Sunday’s fourth game of the schedule with an 0-3 record, and all those games that seemed winnable against teams with a sub .500 winning percentage, are now very losable.
The Knicks dropped to 7-15 within the confines of Madison Square Garden with Wednesday’s 1110-106 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. After the game Carmelo Anthony said he’s trying to figure out why the team is not playing well on it’s home floor.
“I really don’t know what it is, why we can’t play well on our own home court,” Anthony said. “This should be the time where we gain some momentum, gain some confidence as a team playing here on our own home court, but that don’t seem like it’s the case right now.”
