The 1992–93 NBA season was the 47th season for the New York Knicks in the National Basketball Association. During the offseason, the Knicks acquired Charles D. Smith, Doc Rivers and Bo Kimble from the Los Angeles Clippers.[1] Other acquisitions included Rolando Blackman from the Dallas Mavericks,[2] Tony Campbell from the Minnesota Timberwolves,[3] and free agent Herb Williams.[4] The Knicks finished the season by winning 24 of their final 28 games, including a nine-game winning streak in March and five straight victories to end the season.[5] The team had the most wins in the Eastern Conference during the regular season; their 60–22 record earned them the conference's top seed in the 1993 NBA Playoffs.[6] They also posted a 37–4 home record at Madison Square Garden.[5] Head coach Pat Riley was named Coach of The Year,[7] and Patrick Ewing was selected for the 1993 NBA All-Star Game.[6]

In the opening round of the playoffs, the Knicks defeated the Indiana Pacers, three games to one, and advanced to the conference semifinals. The Knicks won their series with the 5th-seeded Charlotte Hornets in five games and gained a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals,[6] where they faced the Chicago Bulls, who had eliminated the Knicks from the playoffs in three of the previous four years.[8] After taking a 2–0 series lead, New York lost the next four games to end its season.[6] Following the season, Kimble was released.[9]
