The New York Knicks have officially advanced to the second round of the 2023 NBA Playoffs for the first time since 2013 after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in their opening series. Now, the NBA will see the revival of one of its fiercest rivalries from the 1990s after the No. 8 seed Miami Heat upset the Milwaukee Bucks.

Here's everything you need to know about the Knicks' upcoming second round series.

When Do the Knicks Play Next in the NBA Playoffs?

The Knicks only have a few days off before their next game. The conference semifinal round of the 2023 playoffs is slated to start on April 29. Still, the Knicks won't be playing until Sunday, April 30 when the No. 8 seed Miami Heat visit Madison Square Garden.

Who Will the Knicks Play in Round 2 of the Playoffs?

As the 5-seed, the Knicks will play the 8-seed Heat in the second round of the playoffs. Miami just defeated the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, winning the series in five games to advance.

New York's second-round matchup will be a typical best-of-seven series that follows the 2-2-1-1-1 format. That means the better seed (the Knicks) will host Games 1 and 2, plus Games 5 and 7 if those are necessary. The worse seed (the Heat) hosts Games 3 and 4, plus Game 6 if that is necessary.

If the Knicks beat the Heat to advance, they would then head to the Western Conference Finals with an NBA Finals berth on the line.
