Finally, it's almost here! One game stands between the New York Knicks and the All-Star break. Considering several key players are dealing with injuries, it couldn't have come at a better time (unless it could've come earlier).

New York has lost three straight games. We're not even going to go into detail about Monday's loss to Houston, given that Ed Malloy admitted that the foul called on Jalen Brunson at the end of regulation wasn't a foul.

It'd be great for the Knicks to enter the break with a win, but it certainly isn't expected. The Magic were hot to start the season and have beaten New York once already. Since then, Orlando has drifted down the Eastern Conference standings, but the team isn't dealing with any major injuries. The main advantage the Knicks have is that the Magic will be on the second half of a back-to-back.

Tom Thibodeau needs to consider giving his starters some rest, even with the break looming. There's no reason that Jalen Brunson should play 40+ minutes. Look at how that impacted Donte DiVincenzo in Houston.
