Last Tuesday marked the Knicks seventh straight loss in the NBA as they went down 96-85 on the road to the Detroit Pistons
Sitting unhappily with a record of 21-40, things were looking pretty grim for the ball club from the Big Apple.
However, suddenly their momentum has taken another dramatic shift but this time in the right direction, as they now sit 3.5 games off the playoffs.
It all started Thursday with a 118-106 win on the road at the Timberwolves. Now add that to the back to back wins against the Utah Jazz and the Cavaliers, and the Knicks have the playoffs insight.
It only takes a few days a strong play and things can change quickly in the NBA.
Woodson has come under fire plenty of times this season, and there are reports suggesting that legendary coach Phil Jackson may take over the reigns at the Knicks next season.
But for now Woodson is still the man at the helm, and he feels optimistic about what's to come for New York.
"There's no room for error," Woodson told NBA.com. "We have to play each possession like it's our last possession. The mental approach is a little different now. It's been a tough season for all of us. Now, they're playing for something."
The Knicks host the Philadelphia tonight (6:30pm ET) in a vital game against a 76ers side that has lost 16 straight contests, with everyone in New York aware that the match-up acts as a must win.
