I am not an NBA buff but have a little bit of knowledge. I know about Pacers-Knicks 90s Reggie/Ewing/Starks but it seems to me that Long island was louder then MSG last night mind you one was a second round series. Anyone with more experience care to elaborate (idk why im intrigued by this). I also think that Rangers playoff game and Knick playoff games are two completely different vibes and I feel the vibe is better at MSG for the Rangers in the spring. Correct me if I am wrong.

I don't have the decibel readings to prove you right or wrong, but I think you are showing a major hockey bias here. Basketball is arguably the biggest sport in New York.

While I believe the average hockey fan is more passionate than the average basketball fan, I don't believe that either could be considered "louder". The Garden gets just as loud for Knicks game as it does for Rangers games. The difference is since basketball scoring is so much more frequent than hockey scoring, basketball fans can't get as pumped up for a tip-in for 2 points as hockey fans can for the garbage goal.

Been to Rangers and Knicks playoffs in the past two years. Hockey atmosphere is a million times better. Although the Knicks were better this year than last

I don't know I am trying to base it on the overall game. I know the last 2 mins in a 4th quarter in a tight game can get really loud. I just seem surprised that the Isles game was louder then a 2nd round Knicks game. I figured the reverse would have happened.

If the Knicks face Miami they will shoot 70 pct and score 130 a game.

Easily the most pathetic offensive postseason I've ever seen as a Knicks fan

His first poor game of the post-season.

Hibbert completely demolishing the Knicks single handily, like I expected. So underrated.

I thought the Knicks couldn't do any worse on offense than they did a few games against the Celtics. I was proven wrong.

Pathetic effort.

Look like a bunch of game 5 Nash's.

I usually don't turn off games. But when I do, it's usually a Knicks playoff game.

aint even mad

Better team is winning the series. Knicks still have big holes in lineup, this year was a progression.

Kidd, JR and Melo should be ****ing ashamed at the choke job they've pulled. Barring a miraculous rally I really hope JR gets overpaid to go somewhere else, its clear he's not reliable enough to thrive on this team. I can't really harp on Melo's poor play because we're stuck with him so our success is based off of his. Kidd is done, upset that we have him for another two years. Regular season was tons of fun but unless Melo and JR suddenly remembered how to ball, we're done.

Effort has been pathetic. Cant blame Woodson even though he's being outcoached by Vogel.

Its not over yet. Win Game 5 and put the pressure back on Indiana.

Its definitely possible to come back. If Carmelo steps up and Indiana stops shooting uncharacteristically well. But I'm coming to terms with what will be the probable outcome.

Knicks won game 5.

George Hill may be out game 6, which would be huge for the Knicks. Their offense runs with him on the floor. But don't have confidence with Melo, Amare and Co.

Also it sucks seeing Kidd pull a Brad Richards on us. Such a shame after fun regular season.
