The Knicks, in their first playoff appearance since the 2012-13 season (when the team led by Carmelo Anthony won the Atlantic Division) Sunday lost to the Atlanta Hawks when Trae Young (left) sank a floater with one second left in regulation.

New York Knicks fans have waited a long time to see their team return to the postseason and the fans in attendance at Madison Square Garden on Sunday evening were treated to an extremely competitive and entertaining contest against the Atlanta Hawks.

After going back and forth for the majority of the second half, it was the Hawks that ultimately came out on tip with a 107-105 win in Game 1.

While the usual suspects came up big for the Hawks, Trae Young led all scorers with 32 points while Bogdan Bogdanovich chipped in 18 of his own, the Knicks received a standout performance from a surprising member of their roster as Alec Burks paced New York's offense with 27 points off of the bench, including 18 in the fourth quarter alone. In the end, though, Burks and the Knicks did not have enough firepower to keep pace with Young's Hawks as the All-Star guard silenced the chants from the Garden faithful with a game-winning floater with just under one second left in regulation.

There two teams will meet again on Wednesday night in Game 2 of their best-of-seven series. The opening tip is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET with TNT handling the broadcast.
