On May 23, 1999, the New York Knicks faced off against the Indiana Pacers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The game, held at Madison Square Garden, became one of the most unforgettable moments in NBA playoff history.

With just 11.9 seconds left on the clock and the Knicks trailing 91-88, Larry Johnson received an inbound pass. He dribbled to the left corner and launched a desperation three-pointer while being closely guarded by Antonio Davis. Miraculously, the shot went in, and Johnson was fouled in the process. The Garden erupted as Johnson celebrated by flexing his biceps, creating an iconic image that would forever be etched in Knicks lore.

Johnson then stepped up to the free-throw line with a chance to complete a remarkable four-point play and give the Knicks the lead. With nerves of steel, he sank the free throw, putting the Knicks ahead 92-91.

The Pacers had one final chance to win the game, but Chris Mullin's three-point attempt fell short, sealing the incredible comeback victory for the Knicks. Larry Johnson's heroics propelled the Knicks to a 2-1 series lead, though they would eventually lose the series to the Pacers in six games.

This moment, known as the "Four-Point Play," remains one of the most thrilling and memorable in NBA playoff history. It showcased Larry Johnson's clutch gene and the electrifying atmosphere at Madison Square Garden. The image of Johnson flexing after hitting the shot has become an enduring symbol of the Knicks' never-say-die attitude and the magic of playoff basketball.
