We won't know until later tonight whether the Knicks are headed from Charlotte to Miami or Chicago for their first-round series. But we do know now that, regardless of location, said first-round series will begin on Saturday, likely in one of the first two matinee slots. This means that Game One in Miami or Chicago (almost definitely Miami, in case that wasn't clear) will be New York's third game in four nights. That's kind of a pain in the ass, and it's why most of the Knicks' starters will rest tonight. Another thing it means: We will be watching the Knicks in the playoffs in less than 48 hours. Probably against the Heat. Hooooooly shit.
