(2)New York Knicks vs (7)Philadelphia 76ers
(3)Milwaukee Bucks vs (6)Indiana Pacers

West:
(1)Oklahoma City Thunder vs (8)New Orleans Pelicans
(2)Denver Nuggets vs (7)Los Angeles Lakers
(3)Minnesota Timberwolves vs (6)Phoenix Suns
(4)Los Angeles Clippers vs (5)Dallas Mavericks

Welcome to playoff basketball, folks....tough, physical and gritty Game 1 at the Garden. What an effort by the Knicks, especially by Josh Hart. How about his hustle on the boards and hitting those clutch 3s. Got to show love to Mitchell Robinson too, doing all he could against Embiid. Plus he nailed those crucial free throws late in regulation. This is going to be a long series. I could see Philly getting a split on Monday.

I have a feeling this Knicks/Pacers series will be tied at 2 coming back to MSG. Not feeling confident without OG.

Knicks have nothing to be ashamed of. Despite all the injuries, they didn't make excuses and gave us all they had.

I'd like for them to beef up the bench and add another star wing player, someone who can buckets anytime, anywhere on the court.

Agreed, a tremendous effort given the constant bad luck with injuries. Brunson being bitten by the injury bug is the cherry on top of that undesirable sundae; if not for that, if been able to go off for 40, 50 points, maybe they get through. Still, they exceeded expectations given that they were the walking wounded. As you said, nothing to be ashamed of. With Brunson and a healthy lineup, another scorer if they can swing a deal as you said, the future looks brighter than it has in a long time.
