With their 39-27 record, the Knicks are sneaking up on the 40-26 Cavaliers.
They are also just eight games behind the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks, who have a 46-18 record.
Over the last few weeks, the Knicks have been dominating a number of teams such as the Utah Jazz, Brooklyn Nets, New Orleans Pelicans, Brooklyn Nets, and more.
They have also defeated the Celtics twice now.
Their performance on Sunday was strong and had the fans on their feet – and it was all done without one of their biggest players.
Jalen Brunson was out for the game and that led many to think that victory would be just out of reach.
That wasn’t the case because Quickley, RJ Barrett, Julius Randle, and other players on the roster were determined to gain yet another win.
It’s been a long time since the Knicks have won nine games in a row and this shows just how transformed the team has become over the last year.
At this point last season, things were looking much different for the Knicks and the chances of a strong playoff run were about non-existent.
Now, fans are picturing a lot of success in the postseason.NEXT: NBA Fans React To Knicks' Big Win Against Celtics
