The southeastern region of the United States has been unkind to the New York Knicks. Of New York’s seven losses, three have come on the road against teams that play in the southeast division.

The Knicks will have a chance to right those wrongs against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday, November 25.

New York will conclude its grueling four-game road trip in Orlando. It’s already faced the Houston Rockets, Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder—a trio of teams with championship-caliber rosters.

Surprisingly, New York made it out of that stretch with more wins than losses.

In order to complete a truly successful road trip, however, New York must end it on a high note. To come out with a 3-1 record from a brutal road stretch would be huge for the team’s confidence moving forward.

Having already dropped road games to the Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Hornets and Miami Heat, can the Knicks avoid a similar result against the Magic?
