The Knicks kicked off the season off at home with a 138–134 overtime win against the Celtics.
Last season, the Knicks finished third in the league in defense (104.7 opponents points per game) but 26th in offensive (107.0 points per game). So far this season, the Knicks are third in offense, scoring 129.5 PPG with nine different players averaging at least 8.5 points per game.
Evan Fournier (25.0 PPG) and Kemba Walker (66.7% from three-point range) have helped balance the offense. R.J. Barrett’s playmaking and the team's deep bench also have been a boost.
Orlando rookie Jalen Suggs (12.0 points, 4.5 assists, 4.0 rebounds) comes in with high expectations. The Magic roster also features Jonathan Isaac, Mo Bamba, Wendell Carter Jr., Cole Anthony, Franz Wagner and R.J. Hampton.
While Orlando has potential, the young players are struggling on defense, and they are inconsistent on offensive.
