New York Knicks
With three games remaining the Knicks are close to locking up the fifth seed. New York is 3.5 games back of the Cavaliers so unable to catch or tie them.
Brooklyn trails New York by 3.0 games and could theoretically tie them but that’s where things get complicated. The Nets would have to win out while the Knicks lost all three games.
If that happens the teams would also be tied in divisional and conference win percentage so the tie would be broken by which of the teams has a better win percentage against Eastern Conference playoff teams.
As can be seen, the Knicks are one of the best defensive teams in the association they limit opponents to 112.5 points which is 10th-ranked overall while possessing the third-best opponent field goal percentage of 46% and ranks 10th for opponent perimeter percentage of 35.3%.
So far, offensively, the Knicks score 115.6 points per game ranking 12th while shooting 47% from the field and 35.3% from the perimeter ranking 21st and 20th respectively.
