The Knicks have dropped six of their last seven at Madison Square Garden.

In some of those losses, they’ve looked like a team that’s disconnected -- I’m thinking specifically about the home losses to the Atlanta Hawks, Portland Trail Blazers, Oklahoma City Thunder, and the road loss to the Nets.

In other home losses, they’ve competed and come up short -- against the Memphis Grizzlies and Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.

After the loss to the Bucks, Tom Thibodeau and some of his players expressed optimism about the team’s trajectory.

“If you’re watching us play, you see that we’re doing a lot of good things,” RJ Barrett said. “We lost a couple close games to some good teams, so we’ve just got to learn from those specific situations and get better so that we can come out with those wins and really string them together.”

The wins need to come soon, though. Internally at MSG, there is heightened scrutiny on the club’s game-by-game performance. That scrutiny was raised after the loss to Oklahoma City and it’s not solely focused on Thibodeau. The entire organization is under the microscope amid a 10-12 start.
