So I take the Knicks 2 game win streak, point at it and laugh, with numberz.
However, this early in the N.B.A. season, it’s easy for fans to make grand assumptions about their favorite team. Pick any part of the regular season, and you’ll find a series of games where even a mediocre team looks dominant. Last season, the Detroit Pistons, who won a little more than a third of their games last year, had six streaks of two or more wins. To paraphrase Humphrey Bogart, two wins don’t amount to a hill of beans in an 82-game season.
