2012 NBA Playoffs, Heat Vs. Knicks Game 1: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The New York Knicks and Miami Heat rekindle an old rivalry when they begin the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs Saturday afternoon.

It's been more than 10 years since the Knicks won a postseason game, but they prevailed in 18 of their final 24 regular season games and enter the playoffs playing a better brand of basketball than they've shown all year.

The Heat rested several of their regulars down the stretch, so Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh should be refreshed for the playoff run.

Tyson Chandler missed Friday's practice with the flu and might miss Saturday's game.

Game Time: 3:30 ET, Saturday, April 28

TV Schedule: ABC
