Patrick Ewing’s jumper with 1.8 seconds to play temporarily saves the Knicks season and forces a Game 6 back in Indiana.

Knicks fans held their collective breath when Reggie Miller hoisted a prayer three after Ewing made his shot. Once Miller missed, the Knicks won, and their 3-1 series deficit was reduced to 3-2 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

P.J. Brown flips Charlie Ward after a free throw, causing many Knicks to leave the bench in his defense, which resulted in five Knicks and one Heat player being suspended.

League rules dictate that a team must dress nine players, so the resulting suspensions were spread out over the series’ final two games. The Knicks played without Charlie Ward and their two leading scorers, Patrick Ewing and Allan Houston, in Game 6. They then played without John Starks and Larry Johnson in Game 7.

A once commanding 3-1 series lead for the Knicks turned into a devastating seven-game series loss.

Knicks beat Chicago 96-91 to take a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Anthony Mason led the way with 15 points, 14 rebounds, and stifling defense on Scottie Pippen. The Bulls shot only 25 percent (4-16) in the fourth quarter. John Starks made two huge threes to swing the momentum to the Knicks’ side in the final frame.
