The Knicks haven’t been able to stop the losing themselves, so maybe a snowstorm will save them Tuesday.
With up to 20 inches expected and the city threatening a travel ban, the Knicks-Pacers at the Garden could be postponed. The final decision will come from the league, not the Knicks, who had a game postponed two years ago at MSG because of snow. In that case, the league waited until the day of the game to announce the postponement.
The Pacers (34-32) flew to New York as scheduled Monday afternoon. They are in the middle of a playoff race, while the Knicks (26-41) are just one defeat away from clinching a fourth consecutive losing season.
The city already canceled schools and above-ground subway service for Tuesday. If the game is postponed, the Knicks won’t play again until Thursday at home against the Nets — meaning they’ll have three days off between games.
It would be the 16th postponement of a game in Knicks history. The reasons have ranged from Hurricane Sandy to asbestos problems to the assassination of JFK.
