Sources: Knicks fire David Fizdale after 8th straight loss

The New York Knicks have fired coach David Fizdale, a league source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Friday.

The Knicks lost their eighth straight game with a 129-92 defeat to the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night, trailing by as many as 43 points. That came on the heels of a 44-point loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Last month, ESPN's Wojnarowski and Malika Andrews reported that league sources said Knicks president Steve Mills had started laying the internal groundwork for Fizdale's eventual firing.
