Mike D’Antoni Infuses New Life into the New York Knicks

November 9, 2008 by AlexV 

Mike D'Antoni has made good so far in his tenure with the Knicks as Head Coach.

Mike D'Antoni has made good so far in his first stint with the Knicks.

So far this season, the New York Knicks are 4-2 and have posted some very impressive victories. The latest of which came earlier when the Knicks knocked off the Utah Jazz at Madison Square Garden by a score of 107-99 earlier today.

In the Knicks’ four victories they have averaged 110.5 points per game, and all have been quite convincing. Those kinds of numbers seem to be a direct reflection of a Mike D’Antoni coached team. Everyone who watches basketball knows what kinds of numbers the Suns put up when D’Antoni was in Phoenix.

Many people may have criticized D’Antoni and his decision to have starting point guard Stephon Marbury sit out. However, the players seem to be finding their roles under the steady direction of a more true point guard, if not nearly as talented, in Chris Duhon.

Hopefully for the Knicks, they can continue to build of this success.
