|NBABrothers Thoughts & Theories||
Last night, the Knicks 8- game winning streak ended in a disappointing loss to the Cavaliers. Running up leads as much as 17 points in the first half, all things pointed to a Knick win early on. But in the second half, they just couldn’t deliver on the floor and the Cavaliers dominated 106-100.
Once again, the Knicks pulled at fans heart strings. The winning streak had seemed too good to be true but we got our hopes up as they kept on winning. We started to believe again. Facing a team like the Cavs who were minus Kyrie Irving, they should’ve jumped on this opportunity and kept the streak alive. They just didn’t bring it on the court in the second half.
With the playoffs around the corner, they Knicks can’t afford to throw away games. There’s only 12 games left until the playoffs and this includes match up against the Heat, Warriors, Nets and Bulls. Die hard Knick fans won’t give up easy and will be walking a tight rope for the next few weeks. We’ll root against the Hawks and keep the dream alive for as long as possible. There is still hope.
I still believe the Knicks can pull it off but not if they have a repeat performance of last night’s game. What do you think? Do you think the Knicks can begin a new winning streak or are you done with this season? Can they make the playoffs? Let me know what you think.
