The Knicks not only own the NBA’s worst record, but they could well finish with the worst record in franchise history.
Saturday’s loss to Toronto was the team’s 16th straight defeat. They haven’t won at Madison Square Garden since Dec. 1 — more than two months ago.
Zion Williamson and Duke have more wins (1) at the Garden during that time than the Knicks.
At 10-45, the Knicks are honing in on the worst record in franchise history (17-65), achieved in 2014-15. If they manage to go 6-21 or worse over the remaining 27 games they would bottom out with the worst record in team history.
