As things have gone from bad to worse for the Knicks, with a 2-9 record in February thus far, here’s a look at the team by the numbers for the month.


32.5 Carmelo Anthony’s scoring average. He also is knocking down .472 of his shots, including .430 from downtown.
10.8 Tyson Chandler’s rebounding average. After underperforming for most of the season, he seems to be rounding into form.
51.6% Pablo Prigioni’s 3-point percentage (16-31). The 36-year-old reserve is giving the Knicks quality minutes off the bench.
42.1% Knicks 3-point percentage in the fourth quarter, which ranks second in the NBA behind the Heat.

20 The number of players who have scored 20 or more points in a game against the Knicks in just 11 games this month (LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Nicolas Batum, Ty Lawson, Brandon Knight, Kevin Durant, Jimmer Fredette, Isaiah Thomas, Rudy Gay, Mike Conley, Eric Gordon, Arron Afflalo, Tobias Harris, Victor Oladipo, Mike Scott, Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, Vince Carter, Monta Ellis, Jose Calderon).

44% Tyson Chandler’s free throw percentage (11-25).
31.3% Iman Shumpert’s field goal percentage (15-48). Shumpert said via Twitter that “this season has been more frustrating than my being out 8 months,” referring to his rehab from a torn ACL.
