The Knicks have already played three games in four nights, but starting Tuesday, it will be their first stretch like that on the road.
To prepare for Orlando, San Antonio and Memphis -- the latter two being two of the top teams in the NBA -- Mike Woodson stressed turnover-free offense, high-intensity defense and rebounding during Monday's practice. Woodson also said there needs to be an increased focus and commitment to get ready for road games, which he called "a different beast."
"Road wins are tough to get, so you've got to really be locked in and focused as a unit," he said. "I'm telling these guys, 'Anybody can be beaten in this league if you don't come to play.' There are no bad teams. Some of the records might indicate teams are not playing very well, but you're still beatable if you don't come to compete."
