The Knicks’ offense is still a playoff concern despite recent strong performances

Despite being short-handed, the New York Knicks beat the Detroit Pistons 124-99 on Monday, with a franchise-record 11 3-pointers made by Donte DiVincenzo. However, looking ahead, New York’s offense still isn’t exactly where they want it to be, which could cost them an opportunity to make the playoffs this season.

According to SNY’s Rafael Canton, the Knicks are just 13th in offensive efficiency. Canton added that their saving grace has been their outstanding offensive rebounding numbers, which may be a deception to their true offensive production.

“The offense will be a central plot point for a Knicks playoff run,” Canton wrote. “The goal numbers look pretty good, but they’re buoyed by the offensive rebounds. New York leads the NBA in offensive rebounding rate, achieving 33.3% possible errors.”
