Knicks Tickets & 2021 NY Schedule
The New York Knicks rank among the iconic teams in sports, and they have millions of fans across the globe including their biggest super fan, Spike Lee. Demand for Knicks tickets at the Garden is strong every season as New York fans turn out to see their favorite team in the Five Burroughs. The Knicks have played over 5,800 games in their history, but still regularly sell out their home court for big games. That is because the Knicks remain one of the most popular teams in the NBA, with a passionate hometown fan base. Those die-hard Knicks fans fill up most of the venue, but also expect to see a large number of patrons in attendance who are there experience a game at "The Garden". Those two segments are joined by fans of the visiting team, as New York has so many transplants, to make for a full house on most home games.
Expectations in the Big Apple are always high, and many Knicks fans go into every season expecting this to "be the year" that the Knicks make a run deep into the postseason. During the Knicks glory days making the playoffs was only step one, but that needed to be followed by a tremendous run that would result in an NBA Finals appearance. These days a Knicks playoff game would be massive, and the faithful in New York continue to hope this will be the year the Knicks make their return to the NBA Playoffs. Demand for Knicks playoff tickets easily outpace the rest of the league. The Knicks having a chance to play in the Eastern Conference Final or NBA Finals in New York would be a set of events without any peer.
The biggest home games on the Knicks schedule each season are their star-studded match-ups against the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics or Philadelphia 76ers. Whenever one of the NBA's biggest stars is in-town, you can bet that New Yorkers will turn out in huge numbers for the game, just like they did for decades when MJ came to the Garden. Other big home games for the Knicks include the long-time rivals from the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat. The biggest demand for Knicks tickets come when New York earns a playoff berth, which brings out a capacity crowd for each home game.

On the court this is a rivalry that is built off mutual respect, buts fans from New York definitely want to beat the team from nearby Boston.

That has intensified the rivalry between the Knicks and Nets to the premiere game it is today. The Knicks have the history of their franchise and The Garden to lean on, but the Nets have a great team that is winning over fans in Brooklyn.

Knicks vs Heat
Some fans may consider the Knicks vs Heat rivalry one that is in the past, but the intensity is still there anytime these two East Coast teams play. The Knicks vs Heat rivalry was been built on physical play, and continues to be chippy at times when these two teams play. It was launched to prominence with a handful of significant playoff series in the 90's. Then the rivalry intensified when legendary head coach Pat Riley became the leader of the Heat after serving in the same role with the Knicks for many seasons. Both teams compete in the NBA Eastern Conference, so the stakes are always high when they play because a playoff spot may be on the line.
