New York Knicks Clinch Spot In 2023 NBA Playoffs

After years of the Western Conference being the most dominant in the NBA, the East has stepped up in a big way, with plenty of talented teams playing for 10 playoff/play-in spots, but one thing few expected was the New York Knicks to be a part of that.

After a slow start, the team turned it around in a big way, and with Jalen Brunson, Immanuel Quickley and Julius Randle all having career years, along with the depth of Obi Toppin, Josh Hart, R.J. Barrett, Quentin Grimes and Mitchell Robinson, this is a team that needs to be taken seriously.

With the win over the Washington Wizards on Sunday, the Knicks have now officially clinched a spot in the 2023 NBA Playoffs, and with a potential matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers looming, this could be a team to keep an eye on.
