KNICKS WIN FIRST CHAMPIONSHIP, 1970
When Willis Reed stepped onto the floor just before Game 7 of the 1970 NBA Finals, it brought The Garden crowd to a frenzy. After leaving Game 5 with a severe knee injury, no one thought Reed would play again in the series.
Instead, Reed limped onto the court, scored the first two baskets, and provided a shot of adrenaline that energized the fans and his teammates. Walt Frazier contributed 36 points and 19 assists as the Knicks defeated the Lakers by a score of 113 to 99 to claim their first NBA title.
