Knicks win fifth straight
Remember when the Knicks were a joke? No, not that time. Not that time either. We're talking about the most recent time, before they inexplicably rattled off five wins in a row, including a fairly solid victory over the defending champion Heat. If the season ended today, the Knicks would actually be the eighth playoff team in the East -- which says a lot about the East, but also is indicative of how much their season outlook has changed in just a few short games. This could be a competitive mirage, but right now, things are looking good for at least one embattled team in New York.
