The Knicks find color at Madison Square Garden | NBA

Since the Christmas game easily won against the Hawks, plucked by the Covid-19 at the time, the Knicks have not lost at home, winning on the floor of “MSG” against Indiana and against Boston thanks to the “game winner” of RJ Barrett, then this week against San Antonio and Dallas.

While they struggled to be respected at home during the first two months of the season (7-10), the Knicks finally show their fangs in their arena.

We work every day, that’s just it » thus delivered Tom Thibodeau to the New York Post. ” We invest to improve as a team, to play hard every possession. We had a bad run, then some guys had to step out of the rotation (due to solitary confinement). Now we find the rhythm. Everyone has been playing well lately, we are still trying to deliver a good 48 minutes. But we are progressing on both sides of the field. »

As “Thibs” rightly points out, the Knicks are finally complete after a small period of turbulence in December, during which RJ Barrett, Julius Randle, Nerlens Noel, Mitchell Robinson, Obi Toppin, Immanuel Quickley and Quentin Grimes all joined the team. ‘isolation.

Now that everyone has returned, the group has found its bearings and it feels positively on the floor. ” It’s quite complicated to change the combinations and insert different guys in the major five observed Evan Fournier. ” But if we each focus on our individual job, it reduces the impact it can have on the collective. […] I hope we will be able to keep this group (the current major five Burks/Fournier/Barrett/Randle/Robinson) for a while, without injuries or Covid. »
