The 8th seed Knicks beat the 1st place heat on Alan Houston's buzzer-beating shot and advanced to the NBA finals in 1998-99. It was the only time an 8th seed made it to the NBA finals. Unfortunately the Spurs beat the Knicks 4-1 to win the title.

I watched the final game in California, with my son (who was going to college there) and my cousin (on business from NY) and we were so disappointed that we could not even speak to each other after the game!
