The New York Knicks suffered a 101-83 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday at Madison Square Garden.  The 18-point blowout extended the Knicks losing streak to seven games and dropped them to an NBA-worst 10-45 record.  Knicks president Phil Jackson was very disappointed in their effort and took to his Twitter account to express his thoughts on the matter.

The Knicks were embarrassed on their court falling behind by 19 in the first quarter and shot just 37% from the floor overall.  Then their former teammates, J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert connected for a SC Top 10 highlight with an eye-popping alley-oop in the fourth quarter.  J.R. Smith torched the Knicks for 17 points and four assists in the blowout.

Jackson’s first year as president is turning out to be quite a rough one.  He has already publicly taken responsibility for the Knicks poor performance as many of his moves have turned out terribly wrong.  Jackson traded Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton for a package that’s highlighted by Jose Calderon whom the Knicks now want to move as well.  It’s considered an even bigger mistake now trading Chandler for pennies when the Nuggets got two first-round picks from the Cavs for Timofey Mosgov.  Jackson also didn’t receive anything for trading Smith and Shumpert in what was a salary dump.

New York is well on its way to establishing the worst record in franchise history (the previous mark is 21 wins).
