For the Knicks, the win was more than eight years in the making.

New York hadn’t won a playoff game since defeating the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference playoff semifinals matchup on May 16, 2013. New York ended up losing the series 4-2. That team featured guys like Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin.

Nobody from the 2012-13 Knicks squad is currently on the 2020-21 Knicks. New York only spiraled down since that time. Die 2020-21 team was the first to win 40 or more games since 2012-13. The team went through six different head coaches and a Phil Jackson era before making it back to the postseason.

The next two games in the series will take place on Friday and Sunday at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta. Because New York won Wednesday night, the series will go to a Game 5 at the very least and return to Madison Square Garden.

One can only imagine what will happen if the Knicks win the series.
