The temptation is to stick a fork in the Knicks and pronounce them done.

The reality?

Even after last night's double OT loss to the Orlando Magic, New York is 4 1/2 games out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference with 27 games remaining. That is more than enough time for them to put together something resembling a hot streak and gain enough ground to reach the No. 8 seed.

They go into Atlanta tonight to face a Hawks team that is reeling,after eight consecutive losses, and it is pretty much a must-win game for Mike Woodson's crew. But it is easy to declare any game a must-win game as we sit here in late February. The real must-win games come in late March and early April.

In this interview with Jody MacDonald on WFAN in New York, we discussed a series of late calls that went against the Knicks in Orlando, plus take a spin around the league to review the trade deadline and debate whether Evan Turner will embrace a reduced role with the Indiana Pacers now that he will be coming off the bench.
