New York Knicks

The New York Knicks recorded yet another victory in their account as they marched on their crusade. Suddenly, critics and analysts predict the Knicks as the surprise contenders for the title. The team is a perfect amalgamation of youngsters and veterans, as they showed in the victory against the Hawks on Wednesday.

This victory was the eighth on the trot for the New York outfit. Making this the longest-active streak of wins of this season. A team that was down and out at the beginning of the season has suddenly found the zeal and ambition to look towards the postseason.

As they recorded another comprehensive victory after going into overtime, the 2000-strong Madison Square Garden crowd got up on their feet to applaud their side. It was a treat to watch their beloved side get the respect they deserve for their performances this season.

In the post-game press conference, Julius Randle spoke about how the team has found the rich vein of form. He said, “We’ve been challenged throughout the season and sometimes they haven’t gone our way. But right now, we’re finding ways to close games and win games.”

Randle was the star of the show for the Knicks as he finished with 40 points to his name. Moreover, the 26-year-old racked up 11 rebounds and six assists during the game. Apart from him, Reggie Bullock also contributed heavily towards the victory. He finished with 18 points and four assists in the match.

“We were searching tonight to get ourselves going,” Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said. “But, we have a true team. As we head down the stretch, we want to be playing our best.”

The New York Knicks are fourth in the Eastern Conference standings. At the moment, they are one of the hottest teams in the NBA and will look forward to securing a playoff berth. If their eight-game winning streak is any sign, then the Knicks have transformed themselves into the team to beat this season.
