Not that you needed the reminder, but it's been over 50 years since the New York Knicks won their last title. Winning the inaugural In-Season Tournament can't compare to winning the NBA Finals, but the Knicks still have a chance to bring the new NBA Cup back to the city.
New York's 115-91 win over Charlotte on Tuesday gave the team the wildcard spot. The Knicks will travel to Milwaukee to face the Bucks in what should be an enthralling quarterfinals matchup.
If New York beats Milwaukee, the team will travel out West for the semifinals and will hopefully be able to advance to the championship.
