Interpretation of data
Regular season ranking changes: 7 → 2 (Eastern)
Winning rate: 65.9% (54 wins and 28 losses, 31 wins and 10 losses at home/23 wins and 18 losses away)
Points scored/losed: 100/95.7
From the seventh place in the Eastern Conference last season to the second place in the Eastern Conference this season, the Knicks have made rapid progress. Their scoring average has increased by 2.2 points per game, their conceded points per game have increased by 1 point, and their winning percentage has increased by 11.1 percentage points.
Thanks to the improved road record (the Knicks’ road record was 14 wins and 19 losses last season).
As far as the regular season is concerned, the Knicks have been quite successful this season and have truly grown into a powerful team.
Although insider Stander Meyer is still plagued by injuries, the Knicks have played in an unprecedented good state in recent years under the leadership of Anthony and Chandler, and the bench gangsters led by Smith also provided sufficient killing and defensive energy.
Until the end of the first round of the playoffs, the performance of the Knicks was excellent. Their 4-2 defeat of the Celtics, a veteran team, made the whole team rejoice.
However, in the Eastern Conference semifinals, the Knicks were beaten 2-4 by the powerful Pacers. This was the end of the Knicks’ season, the biggest and final defeat.
In fact, in terms of book strength, the Knicks are steadily better than the Pacers, but the overall combat power is much inferior. The most obvious performance is that they rely too much on Anthony for scoring.
Knife, in the two rounds of the playoffs, he was even more "nervous".
The foundation of the Knicks’ giants has been firmly established. If they can form a stronger overall combat effectiveness, I believe the Knicks will be even more dominant.
