New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has told his players to stop complaining to the media about their side's poor performances.

The Knicks have struggled for form this season - having won just 15 of their first 41 games.

Woodson's side have lost their last four games and go into tonight's encounter on the back of an embarrassing 103-80 defeat to arch-rivals - the Brooklyn Nets.

New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler said after his side's latest defeat to the Nets that he thought they were 'out-schemed'.

Chandler's comments appear to have irked Woodson and he has subsequently told his players to stop complaining to the media.

“I talk about it," said Woodson. "I don’t think it’s something you air in the paper.

“You got issues, you hold your coach and your teammates accountable and you air it out amongst yourself.”

The Knicks take on the Philadelphia 76ers at Madison Square Garden tonight in a match that will see the Atlantic Division's bottom franchise travel to New York.

The 76ers have won just 13 games in 41 games and are currently third from bottom in the Eastern Conference.
