The New York Knicks were blown out at home Thursday night for their eighth straight loss, leading many NBA reporters to speculate that a David Fizdale firing could be imminent.

The Knicks lost, 129-92, to the Denver Nuggets to fall to 4-18 on the season. It was the team’s second straight ugly loss after losing to the Bucks by 44 points on Monday night. Fans were booing at Madison Square Garden.

While the game was winding down, The New York Times’ Marc Stein said a coaching change felt “inevitable.”

The Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn seemed to speculate about a possible Fizdale firing as well.

So did others.

The Knicks have a flawed roster that was built upon the signing of multiple power forwards over the summer. The decision-makers leading the franchise have done a poor job, but the easiest and quickest fix is firing the coach.

Fizdale is in his second season as the team’s head coach. He went 17-65 last season. There reportedly was a reason why the Knicks hadn’t made a move, but they may choose to now.
