Sorry Knicks fans: your Big Three’s beginner’s luck is a wrap.
And your team is still a disappointment.
It’s “March Sadness” in New York City as the New York Knicks dropped their sixth straight, falling to the Charlotte Bobcats.
Despite new personnel, these struggles are nothing new in the month of March for New York.
The Knicks have posted losing records this month in each of the last seven seasons and have the lowest win percentage in the NBA during March since the 2004-05 season.
Carmelo Anthony set his Knicks career-high with 36 points, doing so on 25 field goal attempts, the most he has taken in a game since his first with the Knicks (also 25).
He did not receive much help from the rest of the Knicks’ perceived “Big Three” though, as Chauncey Billups and Amar’e Stoudemire combined for just 28 points on 29 shots including just six points on five field goal attempts in the fourth quarter.
As of right now, the Knicks should still be able to make it to the Playoffs. But that’s not even a guarantee. Poor thangs.
