The New York Knicks have lost eight of 10 games to start the 2019-20 NBA season and recorded their largest margin of defeat Sunday by losing 108-87 to the Cleveland Cavaliers at Madison Square Garden.

Afterward, Knicks president Steve Mills met with reporters to discuss the lowly state of the franchise:

Mills also expressed that he and the front office aren’t considering making changes within the coaching staff yet. “We have patience, and we believe in (head coach David Fizdale),” Mills said. “We believe in the group that we put together, but we also know … we need to find a way to have a consistent level of effort and execution that has to pull itself together.

“It’s not good enough for us to play well for two quarters and then poorly for two other quarters.”

The Knicks didn’t play well from the start against the Cavaliers, as they trailed by 12 by the end of the first quarter.
