New York Knicks suffered their seventh successive loss last night as Mike Woodson's side were defeated 93-80 by the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Knicks are currently languishing second from bottom in the Eastern Conference due to their poor run of form.

Anthony and company have won just three of their opening 11 matches which has heaped pressure on both head coach Woodson and his players.

Knicks small forward Anthony revealed after their defeat to the Clippers at the Staples Center that a lengthy meeting took place between the players and coaching staff after the game.

"The easiest thing for us to do is just to crumble right now," said Anthony.

"We are in a dark place but we have to get out of this. We just have to get out of it.

"We talked. Everybody talked. The players had a meeting, the coaches - everybody had a meeting after the game. We had to talk. We're trying to figure it out together.

"We have to put four quarters together. We got to do it for one another. Right now the game is not for nobody. We're just not making it happen."

Knicks forward Metta World Peace has played down fears his side are in crisis, by saying that it is 'part of life' to go through a bad spell.

The Knicks will be hoping they can avoid losing their eighth straight game on Friday, when the Madison Square Garden outfit travel to the Pepsi Center to play the Denver Nuggets.
