Stan Van Gundy raises possibility of NBA giving Knicks home-heavy early schedule to raise confidence




 

Hosting the 76ers on Christmas, the Knicks will have 21 of their first 33 games at home this season.

Stan Van Gundy, whose Pistons beat New York on Friday in Detroit, sure took notice.

Van Gundy, via Marc Berman of the New York Post:

Berman:

Several teams - most recently the 2015-16 Heat - have opened with at least 21 home games in their first 33 games of a season. This is not out of the ordinary.

The Knicks are surprisingly in the playoff hunt. But they probably haven't built enough confidence to overcome playing 29 of their final 49 games on the road.

As long as every team plays 41 home games and 41 road games, it all evens out. I'm not convinced any realistic sequence is particularly advantageous or disadvantageous, no matter what conspiracy-theorist coaches might suggest.
