Trailing 62-57 with 3 minutes 39 seconds left in the third quarter, the Knicks went on a ferocious 18-2 run to put themselves in control of a Game 2 victory over Indiana. Patrick Ewing, who finished with 32 points and 13 rebounds, scored ten points during the 18-2 run, and twenty points during the second half.

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.
