The Knicks looked almost unrecognizable in Atlanta in Games 3 and 4. After tying the series at The Garden on Wednesday, they were blown out both games on the road and now are on the brink of elimination, down 3-1. What the heck happened to this team down south? Can it win Game 5 at MSG and come back in this series?
To answer those questions, we bring you a new episode of the “Big Apple Buckets” podcast with Sal Licata, Jerome “The Junk Yard Dog” Williams and I, featuring a chat with friend of the program, Ashley Nicole Moss.
Big Apple Buckets Podcast with Sal, JYD & Jake:
- GAME 4 LOSS: Knicks came out flat of the second half. Julius Randle was not great. RJ Barrett had his moments. Knicks got one point from Immanuel Quickley, Nerlens Noel and Reggie Bullock combined. They are just not making shots in the series. Nate McMillan and the Hawks deserve a lot of credit.
- CAN THEY RALLY: Can the Knicks win Game 5? Is there any hope for them to win the series? They need to make adjustments.

- RANDLE: Where has he been? What happened to his game? Does his playoff performance affect the Knicks potentially giving him a contract extension?
- FRUSTRATIONS: Expected Knicks to play better at home. They got lucky to win a game. Officiating has not been good. Expects Knicks to win Game 5, but then lose the series in Atlanta.
