Goal for the Knicks is to finish either 2nd or 3rd. Miami is probably going to be #1 seed so the 4th seed would play Miami as early as 2nd round (of course if both teams advance the 1st round).
This bolded statement is totally wrong.
You can be SEEDED 4th and not be a top 4 team.
Boston was seeded 4th last year, but they weren't a top 4 team, the Hawks had a better record and was seeded 5th, thus the Hawks had homecourt.
Division titles mean nothing....records mean everything.
