The Knicks are very much assured of playing in postseason games even if they lose their final nine games. Toronto’s loss on Saturday has given the Knicks at least a spot in the play-in tournament between the Nos. 7 and 10 seeds.

Assured of a top-10 finish in the East, the Knicks (35-28) begin their six-game road trip Sunday in Houston. Winners of 10 of 11 games, the Knicks are in fourth place – one game ahead of fifth-place Atlanta and 1 ½ game ahead of sixth-place Boston.

The Knicks are looking forward to avoiding the play-in event that features the seventh-seeded team vs. the eighth-seeded team and the No. 9 seed facing the No. 10 seed.

The winner of the 7 vs. 8 games will automatically make the playoffs. While the loser will face the winner of the 9 vs. 10 games for the final spot.

If the Knicks crap out in the play-in event, they are back in the lottery – their playoff drought extending to eight seasons.
