Knicks 95, Raptors 92: "We're gonna destroy in the NIT"

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

So it ends.

KNICKS WIN. KNICKS WIN. KNICKS WIN. KNICKS WIN. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Of course the Knicks gave up an and-one opportunity and a couple threatening rebounds to the Raptors down the stretch of their final game. Of course the last 20 seconds took like 15 minutes and included several unexpected opportunities for Toronto. The Knicks had to Knicks their final game, even if they ended up with a win. I'm blown away Steve Novak didn't beat 'em at the last second.

And hey, it was a pretty fun win! Cole Aldrich-- who made the best use by far of these meaningless games in the final week-- dominated the glass, thwarted several Raptor shots, and dropped in a few buckets as well. Toure' Murry hit some more threes. J.R. Smith shot the damn lights out and I somehow didn't realize it until looking at the box score just now. Tim Hardaway Jr. did things, too.

And that is it. The 2013-2014 Knicks are over (except for the NIT, like nbanyk said), and the offseason begins now. Well, tomorrow. I'd like to start tomorrow with a timeline of good moments from this season, so feel free to lend ideas in the comments or via email or whatever. In the meantime: Thank you so much for hanging out at P&T this year. A difficult season is so much easier to bear with great company. I love each and every one of you.

P&T's not going anywhere. The 2013-2014 Knicks, thankfully, are. Bye, dummies.
