New York: After leading the New York Knicks not only to their first playoff appearance in eight years, but also securing the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference with a 96-92 win over the Boston Celtics Julius Randle said he isn’t interested in discussing how far the Knicks have exceeded their lowly preseason expectations.
“It didn’t matter then and it doesn’t matter now,” said Randle after finishing with 20 rebounds, 7 assists and 7 rebounds in Sunday’s win over the Celtics. “People really didn’t believe in us at the start of the season … it’s about what we believe in the locker room.”
Regardless of what happens in the postseason, this has already been the best Knicks campaign in nearly a decade. It’s their first winning season since 2013, which was also the last time they had made the playoffs. That year, they finished No. 2 in the East and made it to the second round of the playoffs.
This should me an exciting time at Madison Square Garden this coming weekend for Knicks fans
