Even though the "Knicks tank" is fully gassed up and ready to go, the Knicks were looking forward to finally breaking their home losing streak. Unfortunately for the Knicks, the 76ers were looking to bounce back after suffering a humiliating loss to the lowly Atlanta Hawks.
Against the Pacers, the "Knicks tank" didn't disappoint. Going into the game, the Knicks were without Mitchell Robinson (groin injury), Frank Ntilikina (ankle injury), and Enes Kanter, who sat out due to illness from eating too many burgers on his cheat day.
Even though the "Knicks tank" has been unleashed since early December, sooner or later the Knicks was going to pull out a victory. Last night, the Lakers were vulnerable. Without LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma, the Lakers were ripe for the picking, and the Knicks players picked to their heart's desire.
