Bedlam in Gotham: Knicks fans celebrate first playoff win in 8 years

It’s worth the wait.

This unflappable and lovable New York Knicks team keeps on surprising.

Just when everything was bleak, in a blink of an eye, the Knicks sprung back to life. And The Garden was Eden once again. A basketball paradise with New York’s long-suffering fans taking a bite on the taste of success.

The Madison Square Garden was rocked to its core after the Knicks pulled off a magical 101-92 comeback win in Game 2 to even the series against the Atlanta Hawks.

New York fans filled the streets around The Garden to celebrate the first Knicks playoff victory in eight years — exactly 2,932 days — or since May 16, 2013, when they beat the Pacers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

It’s safe to say that basketball is truly back in the mecca.
