Madison Square Garden Hosts NY Knicks First Playoff Win Since 2013

For the first time in more than eight years — 2,923 days, to be exact — the New York Knicks were able to celebrate a playoff win. And, like the last one, they were able to do it at Madison Square Garden.

With their 101-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 of their first-round series, the Knicks were able to send 15,000 screaming fans home happy after evening the series at 1-1.

It was the Knicks’ first postseason victory since May 16, 2013, when they beat the Indiana Pacers 85-75 in Game 5 of the conference semifinals, a series they ultimately lost in six games.
