My first basketball experience

We're coming to New York in early April and i would really like to experience a basketball game for the first time,what would be the best game to go and see as i believe the knicks are playing against Cleveland on the Sunday and Toronto on the Tuesday..

Which are the best of these two teams and what would be the best atmosphere ?

Many thanks

Both Cleveland and Toronto are sucktastic. But, the Knicks have just completed a blockbuster trade to bring Carmelo Anthony back home to New York. They are also making their first playoff push in a decade. Expect the price of tickets, even for these games, to rise.

Another option is to see college basketball at the Garden. Catch a St. John's game which will also provide you with lots of spirit and excitement. The Red Storm are HOT this year, and have cracked the national top 25 for the first time in a decade. See a theme here?

There is also the Post season NIT tournament being held at the Madison Square Garden on the 29th and 31st of March.

Mel -- see a theme ? yes I do two teams both excited about some success that will be eliminated early in their respective playoffs. For the OP--- I think you would have found the excitement of college basketball at a higher pitch than the professionals . but I think the season will be over in Early April when you come so your only hope would be the Knicks.
