Fans of the New York Knicks took to the streets to vent their anger at the Eastern Conference franchise's poor form during the current campaign.

A group of 50 fans decided to show their rage at their side's current situation before the New York Knicks win against the Indiana Pacers at Madison Square Garden.

Their vocal protest came on the day of the New York Knicks' first game since legendary NBA head coach Phil Jackson was appointed chairman of the franchise.

New York Knicks supporters are said to be upset at how owner James Dolan has failed to capitalise on last season's successful campaign.

The Eastern Conference are currently one spot off of the playoffs, which has annoyed fans of the franchise.

Speaking to the New York Post, fan Karina Guerrero said on their protest: “The catalyst was the bad season, after we had such a successful one last [year].

“Everything started from the top. It’s been years of the same mismanagement from Mr. Dolan. We’ve just been tired of it.

"We thought that it was the perfect time to come and finally say something after so long.”

On the court, the New York Knicks recorded their seventh straight win against the Pacers on Wednesday night in their first game under the stewardship of Jackson.

The New York Knicks next game is on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers.
