2000 – The New York Knicks clinched the second-round series victory after beating the Miami Heat in Game 7, 83-82. Latrell Sprewell and Patrick Ewing led the way with 24 and 20 points, respectively. This day in 2000 is the last time that the Knicks made it to the Eastern Conference Finals.
About one month ago, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe broached the subject that Ewing should be in the Knicks’ coaching discussion. Since Steve Kerr passed on the New York position, it would be interesting to see Ewing back in the Big Apple. The 11-time all-star has been an assistant coach with four different teams, but the Knicks are not one of them.
