The first half of the season is officially behind the New York Knicks, as they are now 42 games into the season after Monday evening’s victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. That victory was the first in 38-days, ending a franchise-worst 16-game losing streak.

That pretty much puts into perspective just how poorly the first half of the season went for the Knicks, as they had the worst record in the NBA, and are firmly on pace to have the worst season in the history of the storied franchise.

It was not pretty by any means, but let us take a look back on the first half of the 2014-2015 season. Check out some of our takeaways from the first 41 games of the Knicks’ season, the first one for rookie head coach Derek Fisher and Phil Jackson as president.
