Today in Knicks History- The Dunk

With less than a minute to go and the Knicks clinging to a three-point lead in Game 2 of the 1993 Eastern Conference Finals, Knicks guard John Starks explodes baseline and rises to the rim against Horace Grant and a late-arriving Michael Jordan.

Starks keeps rising and then flushes an emphatic left-handed dunk that sent the Garden crowd into a frenzy.

New York won the game, 96-91 to take a 2-0 series lead, but would wind up losing the next four and the series.


To date this is one of my favorite individual plays in Garden history.

    Gotta be one of the best dunks in NBA history. This is up there with Game 7 against the Lakers with Reed hobbling out and Clyde putting up a a ridiculous stat line – 36 points, 19 assists, 7 rebounds – to win the championship. And of course, Larry Johnson’s 4-point play
