While the New York Knicks currently stand at 9-19 in the Atlantic Division, head coach Mike Woodson is still optimistic that the team could take the Atlantic Division.
Currently, the Knicks are only three games out of the top slot in the division and Woodson believes that no one will run away with it at the moment according to the New York Post:
“Do I see some light at the end of the tunnel? I do,” Woodson said. “I think eventually we’ll get where we need to get, based on our last 12 games. Eventually we’ll get healthy and we’ll see how it all plays out.”
Starting with the back-to-back routs of the Nets and Magic, the Knicks are 6-6 in their last dozen games.
“The beauty of all this is nobody’s running away with it in [the Atlantic] division,” Woodson said. “I’m pushing our team to win our division still. We won it last year. I expect us to win it this year.’’
Honestly, the Knicks have played some horrible games this season but considering the fact, they’re still alive in the Atlantic Division chase and we will see what Carmelo and company can do.
