A total of 15,047 fans were in attendance as the host Knicks dropped a 107-105 decision to the Hawks in the series opener on Sunday. The team expanded its seating for fully vaccinated fans on Wednesday, as 16,254 fans watched as New York evened the best-of-seven series with a 101-92 win over Atlanta in Game 2.

“It’s moments like this that show us what’s possible if everyone gets vaccinated — we’ll all be able to get back to doing what we love — and that definitely includes being together to cheer on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden,” said David Hopkinson, EVP, MSG Sports and President, Team Business Operations.
