The New York Knicks entered Sunday's regular-season finale as the possible No. 2, 3, or 4 seed in the 2024 playoffs. It came down to overtime, but the Knicks pulled out the 120-119 win to secure the No. 2 seed behind Jalen Brunson's 40 points.

New York will have the next several days off to rest and prepare for the first round of the postseason.

When's the last time the Knicks were the No. 2 seed in the playoffs?

New York last finished as the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference in 2012-13, the last time the Knicks recorded a 50-win season. On Sunday, New York snapped both of those droughts.

Who will Knicks play in first round of 2024 playoffs?

New York will play the winner of No. 7 Philadelphia and No. 8 Miami. The Sixers-Heat Play-In Tournament game will be played in Philadelphia on Wednesday, with the tip-off scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Knicks' full 2024 playoff schedule (updated)

The playoffs will start on Saturday, April 20.

First round vs. Sixers

Game 1 (MSG): Saturday, April 20 at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN

Knicks 111-Sixers 104 (New York up 1-0)

Josh Hart (22 points and 13 rebounds), Deuce McBride (21 points), and Mitchell Robinson (12 rebounds, 8 points, and 4 blocks) came up huge for New York in its Game 1 win. Jalen Brunson struggled, shooting 8-of-26 from the floor for 22 points, but the Knicks still found a way to get it done.

Game 2 (MSG): Monday, April 22 at 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT

Knicks 104-Sixers 101 (New York up 2-0)

New York scored eight points in 27 seconds to come back to stun Philadelphia in Game 2. Brunson struggled again offensively, but he hit a big three with 27 seconds left to put the Knicks within two. A huge offensive rebound by Isaiah Hartenstein led to a Donte DiVincenzo three.

Game 3 (Wells Fargo Center): Thursday, April 25 at 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT

Joel Embiid played dirty and should've been ejected in the first quarter for pulling Mitchell Robinson's legs out from under him. Embiid scored a playoff career-high 50 points, while Robinson missed the second half. New York wasn't able to recover.

Sixers 125, Knicks 114 (Knicks up 2-1)

Game 4 (Wells Fargo Center): Sunday, April 28 at 1 p.m. ET on ABC (only game that won't be broadcast by MSG Network)

The Knicks were down by double-digits early, but clawed their way back for the win. Jalen Brunson scored 47 points, a franchise playoff career-high. OG Anunoby and Precious Achiuwa held Joel Embiid to three points (all free throws) in the fourth quarter. Josh Hart was a monster on the boards. New York fans took over Wells Fargo Center. It was a good day.

Knicks 97, Sixers 92 (Knicks up 3-1)

Game 5 (MSG): Tuesday, April 30 at 7 p.m. ET on TNT

Tyrese Maxey scored seven points in 28 seconds to force overtime. The Knicks lost their composure and couldn't finish it at home.

Sixers 112, Knicks 106 (Knicks up 3-2)

Game 6 (Wells Fargo Center): Thursday, May 2 at 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT

Sixers ownership bought 2,500 tickets to keep Knicks fans out of Wells Fargo Arena, but in the end, that didn't matter. New York jumped out to a 33-11 lead, but went into the half down down three, 54-51. A back-and-forth game resulted in a Knicks win.

Knicks 118, Sixers 115 (Knicks win 4-2)

Second round vs. Pacers

Game 1 (MSG): Monday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT

In another chaotic ending, the Knicks put up 39 points in the fourth quarter to take down the Pacers. Brunson scored 43 points, becoming the fourth player in NBA history to have four consecutive 40+ point games in the playoffs. Meanwhile, Tyrese Haliburton scored only six points on two-of-six shooting, including zero points in the final quarter.

Knicks 121, Pacers 117 (Knicks up 1-0)

Game 2 (MSG): Wednesday, May 8 at 8 p.m. ET on TNT

Brunson missed the end of the first quarter and the entire second quarter with a foot injury, and Anunoby missed the end of the third quarter and the entire fourth quarter with a hamstring injury, but New York stormed back to take the win. Brunson returned on a hurt foot and scored 24 of his 29 points in the second half.

Knicks 130, Pacers 121 (Knicks up 2-0)

Game 3 (Gainbridge Fieldhouse): Friday, May 10 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN

Even without Anunoby, the Knicks fought until the final minute. If it weren't for an (unfortunately) spectacular three-pointer from Andrew Nembhard, New York might've gone up 3-0.

Pacers 111, Knicks 106 (Knicks up 2-1)

Game 4 (Gainbridge Fieldhouse): Sunday, May 12 at 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC

For the first time in the postseason, the Knicks looked absolutely exhausted. New York was outplayed from start to finish. Thibodeau had no choice but to pull his starters in the third quarter.

Pacers 121, Knicks 89 (Series tied 2-2)

Game 5 (MSG): Tuesday, May 14 at 8 p.m. ET on TNT

Game 6 (Gainbridge Fieldhouse): Friday, May 18 (time TBD) on ESPN

Game 7 (MSG) (if needed): TBA
