Video: New York Knicks Win First Playoff Home Game Since 2013

The New York Knicks played themselves back into their series against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night as Derrick Rose dropped 26 points and Julius Randle was able to get himself going in the second half. The 101-92 victory was the Knicks first at Madison Square Garden since 2013, which showed as the MSG crowd was as intense and entertaining as ever.

It wasn't all easy as the Knicks couldn't solve Hawks guard and public enemy #1 Trae Young in the first half and were facing a 13-point deficit. One small coaching change to insert Rose into the starting lineup of the second half and next thing you know Randle gets going and the Knicks never looked back. The NBA's most improved player knocked down 15 points and grabbed 12 boards, and was able to still be effective when he couldn't find his jumper.

As for Young, he shushed the crowd in Game 1 after his winning bucket and the crowd let him hear it on Wednesday. He managed to score 30 points, while Bogdan Bogdanovic and De'Andre Hunter added 18 apiece.
