The New York Knicks season seems like it could be turning around for the better.  However, the Knicks do have some tough tests upcoming with at Miami then Milwaukee.
But, the Knicks are 3-1 in their last four games.  Yes, the 3 wins are against under .500 teams but a win’s a win especially how this season started.
During that stretch, the Knicks lead the NBA in Offensive Efficiency.  They’re averaging 119.0 points per 100 possessions under Mike Miller.  In second place, the Bucks at 118.7, who they play Saturday.
The last time the Knicks faced off against the Bucks it was one of the worst outings fans have ever seen.  The game was over as soon as the ball went up in the air.  Can this time be different?  Possibly because the Knicks do look different under Miller.
When David Fizdale was the coach, the Knicks were last in the league at Offensive Efficiency at 101.9.  Even though the players said they backed Fizdale, it’s clear the team is more ‘a team’ under Miller.
It’s a very small sample size, 6 games, and fans shouldn’t make Miller out to be the savior just yet.  Knicks fans finally have something to be excited about even if it’s for a short period of time.
This season has been a rollercoaster and the Knicks are actually starting to scratch the surface of this teams potential under Miller.  The talent is there, it’s just about execution and ball movement which seems to be improving, for now.
They had chances to win their game last Sunday against one of the best teams in the West, Denver Nuggets.  Now they take on the two best teams in the East and fans will truly see new what these new and improved New York Knicks are made of.
