The Knicks opponents that are 11th to 15 seeded teams after 50 regular season games ..
A coach looking to go to the playoff would be preparing a lot of the the teams bench players in lineup vs these below .500 teams.
However, coach Thibs is not that coach looking and preparing for a play off season, when Thibs are still struggling to get some consistency from his BIG-3 starters (Randle, Barrett, Brunson) on offense/defense, by playing the BIG-3 starters 35 or more minutes in every game, especially vs LOTTERY teams.
When celebrating the Knicks BIG-3 win over the Magic .. Recall
The 22-33 Orlando Magics team are a young-core group with some future talented BIGS.
The Magics roster and rotation for a successful season need veterans and two new starter guards.
The Magics starter PG Fultz talents are that of a backup PG, or the 3rd PG on a NBA roster.
The Magics other guards Gary Harris, Jalen Suggs, Cole Anthony and Terrence Ross performance has all showed the level of a backup guard.
Today's Magics roster of guards are the same level of guards the Knicks roster had for two decades.
