For the first time since 1993-94 season, the New York Knicks were 6-0. In 1993, they won their first seven games and were able to reach the NBA Finals.
The current Knicks team and fans can hope for the same results.

The Knicks lost to the Memphis Grizzlies 105-95. According to The Associated Press, after beating the Knicks, the Grizzlies now have the best record in the league for the first time in franchise history.
