Huge game for Burks filling in some at point and they needed it as Thibs rested an exhausted Rose. Barrett bounced back nicely as well. If Knicks win out, they have a shot at 5th if Miami loses at Milwaukee, hard to see them getting 4th since Hawks would have to lose final game to the Rockets.  Great season for our guys no matter how it ends

Someone called sports talk radio last night and made a good point-Bucks may not want to beat Miami so they can avoid them in first round of playoffs. Consensus seems to be Miami the best of the 3 teams (Heat, Hawks, Knicks).

This is admittedly a reach but hey that's what Knick fans do. The Rockets still owe us for breaking our hearts in the 1993-1994 finals so beat the Hawks on Sunday night (assuming we win our final two)!

Knicks lucky to get to OT today. Their execution on offense the last 4 minutes was reminiscent of the last 10 years. Have blown a 17 point lead.

More often than not they find a way to get it done. Never should have gotten to OT as Burks got run over going for loose ball and should have been going to the line to win it; really bad missed call.

Noel (8 pts, 11 rebounds, 5 blocks) and Burks both came up big today along with Randle. But if Knicks are going to make any noise in the playoffs they need Barrett to consistently play like their 2nd best player; 2 out of last 3 games he's been MIA.

defense was lacking until late in the game. Knicks were so hot early especially from 3 they looked like all they wanted to do is outscore them which is how they blew 17 point lead at home. In playoffs against better teams will take 48 minutes of defensive effort.

Knicks win and they finish 4th as they own tiebreaker with Atlanta by virtue of 3-0 record against them.

That's great that Knick win clinches 4th place. But I've been reading all along that Hawks win tiebreak by virtue of winning their division. What changed?
