The New York Knicks will play the next playoffs. The Knicks are only 2.5 games ahead of seed 11, but they are playing some of their best basketball of the season. Behind the second best defense in the league, they should have enough to beat the competition for a slot.
There are undoubtedly threats on the horizon. The Washington Wizards recalled having two stars and the Hawks could be getting into a rut with new coaching. But trust is strong in this team and its management, and for good reason. This year is different and the Knicks plan to give it a try.
