On Monday afternoon, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that at least half of seating at both Knicks and Nets playoff games will be for vaccinated people, with the teams deciding how many people will sit in unvaccinated sections.

Upon that news, Knicks owner James Dolan told The Athletic that he hopes for at least 13,000 fans at Knicks home games during their playoff run.

The Athletic notes that Dolan wants vaccinated fans "sitting shoulder to shoulder."

"We think [tickets are] going to go fast," Dolan said. "Get them but get your vaccine if you haven't already."

Cuomo added that social distancing and masks will be required in unvaccinated sections.

The Knicks will host the Hawks for Games 1 and 2 of their first-round series, while the Nets' opponent is still to be determined after the play-in rounds.
