The New York Knicks are hoping to end their mini-losing skid after dropping back to back games against the Los Angeles Clippers and the Charlotte Hornets. For tonight’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, expect forward Carmelo Anthony to play despite soreness in his left knee.
Against the Hornets, the Knicks seemed to lose focus and momentum in the 2nd end of a back to back game.
“We just weren’t playing with enough energy,” Head Coach Derrick Fisher said. “We looked just completely worn down and worn out. We could not continue to bring enough energy to the game to have a chance. We just got some guys out there in the fourth quarter just to try to play hard and not really worry about the score.”
Tonight they face a Thunder squad that are coming off a 10 point upset loss to the Brooklyn Nets and Fisher is trying hard to get his team back to .500 ball.
“How do you get to a point where you can break (past .500)?” coach Fisher said. “It requires more sacrifice, more discipline, more commitment and more energy. We have to keep plugging until we find a way.”
