Knicks won series 3-2
After going down 2-0 in the first round of the 1990 playoffs to the Celtics, the Knicks came back and won the next two games to set the stage for the best-of-five series finale in the Boston Garden. Patrick Ewing, Gerald Wilkins, and veteran Maurice Cheeks led New York to a 121-114 victory over the Celtics. Don't worry Boston sports fans, you eventually got the last laugh.
