The New York Knicks are 1-0 after last night's thrilling 138-134 double-overtime. Coming off last season's surprise playoff appearance, fans of the orange and blue are hyped.

The scene outside Madison Square Garden after Wednesday's win over the Boston Celtics was absolute pandemonium. New York City street show Sidetalk captured footage of the mayhem and shared it on Twitter.

The short video, which can be seen below, captures Knicks fans losing their minds one-by-one. Almost every one who takes the mic shouts some version of "The Knicks are back!" with many people sprinkling in some salty, NSFW language.

If this video looks familiar, we saw similar ones last season, when the Knicks surprised everyone by going 41-31 and earning the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference. The East is improved this year, but so are the Knicks.

In the offseason, New York added Evan Fournier, who scored 32 points in last night's win, as well as hometown favorite, point guard Kemba Walker. If Julius Randle continues to perform at the level he did last year and on opening night, it could be another fun season at MSG.

And if this is how the fans are after just one win, we can only imagine what will happen if the success keeps building.
