The Knicks put on a “sickening” performance Thursday night, according to head coach David Fizdale, during 129-92 blowout home loss to the Denver Nuggets.
Fizdale, so far anyway, has managed to hang on to his job through New York’s ugly eight-game losing skid
Fizdale continues to tell reporters that he’s unconcerned about his employment status during an otherwise hopeless season.
“I don’t care about all that,” Fizdale said. “I don’t even think about that, really. I think about the next team we’re playing, I think about the guys in the locker room and how I can help them. At the end of the day, that’s all I care about.”
Asked if he believed he was still, as has often been stated, on the same page with the front office, he said, “Yeah. Absolutely. I’m still coaching this team. I’m still pushing them. I’m still preparing them. We had a hell of a practice before this game, it was just a disappointing output.”
While the Nuggets (14-5) are among the league’s best teams, they had lost their last two games and were in the midst of a road trip. But it was the Knicks who looked worn out and giving up.
“Sickening,” Fizdale said. “They’ll have to re-watch it. Just like I’m going to watch it three or four times, they’re going to have to suffer through it as well.”
