Higher-level mathematics is not needed to recognize that a team will fall by the wayside in the face of this constellation.

Nevertheless, the depth of the squad is weakened. However, the team has come to grips with the seriousness of the situation since the beginning of mid-March, when it faced bitter defeats against beatable opponents like the Cavs from Cleveland or the Memphis Grizzlies. Victories against immediate rivals such as Miami or already qualified teams like Indiana Pacers and Philadelphia 76ers a few days ago show this, although against Detroit less than a week ago and at the Toronto Raptors last Tuesday also bankruptcies had to be booked.

The club from New York may, in view of the bad season once more but very good chances in the next draft, as it will be assigned as the worst team in the NBA especially many combinations in the lottery. The team of coach David Fizdale is of course also on the “refuel” and hardly willing to win games to defend the last place. Instead, some players have been tested in recent games to see if they qualify for next season. A circumstance that led to names such as point guard Emmanuel Mudiay suddenly appearing in the Starting Five.
How bad it is about the two-time champions, can be attached to numerous factors: For example, the Knicks have the worst field goal rate with 43.2 percent and no team in the NBA comes to fewer assists per match (20.0 ) and with 104.9 points per match also the offensive weakness of the franchise from Manhattan becomes clear – because only the Cavs and Grizzlies are still weaker in this ranking. With Enes Kanter, the Knicks have also dismissed a seasoned center a few weeks ago from his contract. In Fizdale, the 26-year-old barely played a role at last, which is why the Turkish-born player sought to break up. Meanwhile, he is under contract with Portland, where he delivered immediately comparatively good performances.
