Knicks schedule lookahead: Will New York’s winning streak continue this week?

Amid a winning streak that has extended to nine games, the New York Knicks are the hottest team in the league. In the past week, New York has defeated Boston (twice) and Miami. With a little over a month left to play in the regular season, the Knicks need to keep their foot on the gas.

Depending on what happens in the coming weeks, the team could finish as a top-five team in the Eastern Conference. There’s a chance that New York could face off against none other than Donovan Mitchell and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the playoffs. Wouldn’t that be something?

Looking ahead at the team’s remaining games, the Knicks will return to MSG for one game before going on a road trip out West. Will New York be able to keep the streak going?

Knicks schedule lookahead March 6-12

  • Tuesday, March 7: vs Charlotte Hornets
  • Thursday, March 9: at Sacramento Kings
  • Saturday, March 11: at Los Angeles Clippers
  • Sunday, March 12: at Los Angeles Lakers

After a double-overtime win on Sunday against the Celtics, the Knicks will have one day off before hosting the Hornets. Charlotte was dealt some tough news recently with star LaMelo Ball fracturing his right ankle last Monday against the Pistons. He’ll be out for the remainder of the season. New York has beaten Charlotte twice this year and should do the same on Tuesday against one of the worst teams in the league.

The Knicks will then start their four-game road trip in Sacramento against the Kings, a team that surprisingly sits No. 3 in the West. New York beat Sacramento back in December at MSG, but this game will likely end up being the team’s most challenging one of their road trip.

Then it’ll be on to Los Angeles to take on Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and the Clippers before playing a Lakers team without LeBron James the following night.

Here’s how the Knicks’ games this week should be ranked in order of importance:

  • at Sacramento Kings
  • at Los Angeles Clippers
  • at Los Angeles Lakers
  • vs Charlotte Hornets

Charlotte may be the only conference opponent that New York will face this week, but that game should be far less challenging than the other three.

With how the Knicks have been playing as of late, it wouldn’t be shocking at all if the team went 3-1 this week. That loss could come against the Kings or against either the Clippers or Lakers, especially since New York will face Anthony Davis and LA on the second half of a back-to-back.

There are 16 games left for the Knicks to play in the regular season. Let’s see what this team will continue to do.
