The Knicks only need one win to clinch the second seed in the Eastern Conference and secure home-court advantage for at least the first two rounds of the playoffs. The Pacers are currently sitting at No. 3 and could face the Knicks in the semifinals.
But if the Pacers lose tomorrow and their next two games against the Celtics and 76ers, and the Nets win all three of theirs -- against the Raptors, Wizards and Pistons -- Brooklyn would take over the third spot. That would mean a potential Knicks-Nets meeting in the postseason.
