Many did not è like the rule related to point difference. The Knicks, for example, had to score as many points as possible and increase the gap in the challenge with the Hornets (115-91) to win the pass to the quarterfinals. "I didn&#39t like it.

That goes against the integrity of the game a little bit,'the words of Knicks player Hart to ESPN.
