(1995) Knicks attempt to pull off one of the greatest comebacks in NBA Playoff history (down 3-1 in series) falls short by inches, as Patrick Ewing misses on a short runner in the closing seconds to enable the Pacers to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals with a 97-95 Game Seven victory at a stunned Madison Square Garden.

(2000) After three straight tough Game 7 losses, the Knicks break through and defeat the Miami Heat, 83-82, in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.  Latrell Sprewell chases down a Clarence Weatherspoon miss with :2.1 remaining to seal the deal.
