http://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/199905160MIA.html Patrick Ewing scored 22 points (9-19) and collected 11 rebounds. He lead the Knicks to a 78-77 win over the Miami Heat. The series was capped off by Allan Houston's game winning floater in the lane. With the victory, the Knicks became the 2nd #8 seed to eliminate a #1 seed in the first round. Ewing was clearly in pain with his aging knees and sore achilles tendon. he grimaced through the pain and hit big shots when New York was reeling. the 36 year old Ewing was still putting up big games for his team. Its a shame he couldnt participate in the 99 Finals. The Spurs would have won regardless but Ewing/Duncan would have been fun to see...old school vs young blood... Happy Birthday Patrick Ewing!
