The Knicks are fine. When they won 9 of 10 with Melo and Wallace missing time, they were the greatest. They lose their first home game of the season to a mediocre team who matches up well with the Knicks (and only the Knicks) and all of a sudden the season's over.

The Eastern Conference sucks. The Knicks are 12-2 against them

Denver is 7th in the NBA in offense. The Lakers are 6th. Houston is 3rd.

Knicks went 2-1 in those games.

Injuries happen when you have an old team. Older reserves have to play more minutes than they're used to when key players get hurt.

Old team + more minutes = less energy.

The Knicks play six of the next eight games against the Western Conference. Better now than later. The Knicks only have one massive road trip after Christmas three months from now, and that's when Amare, Shumpert will be healthy and almost in midseason shape.
