Knicks officially in the postseason.

admittedly its only a tenth seed so far going into the toughest part of our schedule, but still pretty awesome compared to where we started this season. Thibs and the rest of this coaching staff worked a pretty big miracle.

if we lose the play in we get a lottery pick and no playoffs. we aren’t officially in the playoffs yet

Knicks only clinch the play-in. That's something they don't want to be in. they need to guarantee the 4th seed.

Let’s not act like any of us thought a 4 seed was possible coming into this year. Thibs, Randle, Rose and RJ have all been key to this teams success let’s just appreciate this season for what it is.

Bring on the Heat; we'll have Jimmy wishing he was back by Thibs' side by the end of that series.

Like everyone else, I would love for us to get the 4th seed. That being said, agree with the OP. Few of us thought we would be clinching a playoff birth - let along a winning record - with still 8 games to go, and be in position to take 4th (be in the drivers seat no less). This has been without a doubt my favorite Knicks season so far since the late 90s.

Anything less than 6th seed would be very disappointing.
Who would have thunk it huh~

where's our season expectations thread? gotta read those receipts. i don't think even the most optimistic of us had anything like this. i did believe we could maybe sneak into the play-in picture. but damn.

ESPN new power rating has Knicks #8. 538 moved us up a victory to a projected #19 in the NBA at 39-33 (still behind Hawks. tied with Miami and one game ahead of Celtics projections). But 538 probably still thinks Hilary won. :crazy: :roll: :wink:
