Round: Eastern Conference Semifinals
Dates: May 7-May 21
Winner: Knicks, 4-3
One year prior, the Miami Heat became just the second top seed to lose in the opening round, somehow adding to what presumably couldn't be a more contentious rivalry. But with a 3-2 advantage and a chance for revenge, Miami went and blew it again, surrendering double-digit leads in both Games 6 and 7. It would be the storied Knicks' last playoff series win until...maybe forever?
