The New York Knicks still need to figure out how to win away from home.
The New York Knicks played a really bad game on Monday as they fell to the Charlotte Hornets by a score of 109-91, after just defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder the other night.
Here are my three observations from the Knicks loss to the Hornets.
Knicks play uninspired on the road
I know the Knicks just snapped their six-game road losing streak with a win over the Brooklyn Nets the other night, but playing in Brooklyn is pretty much a home game for them.
While watching the Knicks face off against a struggling Hornets team, I noticed just how uninspired New York looked compared to when they’re at Madison Square Garden playing in front of their home fans.
The Knicks were losing by more than 20 points for most of the night.
If the Knicks truly believe they’re a playoff team, they better get their act together away from the Garden.
Michael Beasley showed up again
With Kristaps Porzingis out for a second straight game with a knee injury, Michael Beasley came through with 23 points and nine rebounds. He connected on 45 percent of his field goals and 50 percent of his three-point attempts.
Unfortunately, the rest of the Knicks’ roster didn’t do their part. No other player scored more than 12 points.
Knicks went ice cold from three-point land
The Knicks were hot against the Thunder on Saturday night after connecting on 60 percent of their three-point attempts. Against the Hornets, they only shot 16 percent from beyond the arc. That’s pathetic.
