The fat lady has officially sung and the New York Knicks have been mathematically eliminated from finishing among the top eight teams in the Eastern Conference. I suppose you sort of have to give it up to the Atlanta Hawks, who defeated three playoff teams (Indiana, Brooklyn and now Miami) in their last five games to knock the Knicks out of the playoff hunt.
