2012 NBA Playoffs, Knicks Vs. Heat: New York's Playoff Demons Finally Erased

Carmelo Anthony outplayed LeBron James, Amare Stoudemire returned from self-inflicted injury to post a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double and the New York Knicks finally waved their wands to make their decade-long playoff demons disappear.

All of which has SB Nation Knicks blogger Seth Rosenthal (Posting and Toasting) quite excited. Rosenthal admitted he entered Game 4 hoping for a painless execution, but afterward, in much better spirits, he jokingly (I think) got ahead of himself and predicted more playoff success.

I'll fully admit to sitting down for the game ready for the season to just get over with and go away, but I underrated how good it would feel for the Knicks to get their first playoff win since the days when I unabashedly wore zip-off pant-shorts. It felt THE BEST, and even if the win goes on to mean nothing, it will have made a huge difference for my psyche. Of course, we know full well that the win won't go on to mean nothing. Today was just day one of the Most Improbable Legendary Playoff Comeback of All Time.
