Boomer & Craig got things going this morning by talking about the Knicks’ 102-96 loss to the Celtics last night at the Garden. Carmelo Anthony had a horrid shooting night, finishing 6-for-26, and after the game he tried to track down Kevin Garnett for a little fist-a-cuffs, waiting for him at the Celtics’ team bus.

Despite the setback, Craig is still confident in his Knickerbockers. Boomer is looking forward to the return of Raymond Felton and is still pining for the days of “Linsanity.” There is good news for Knicks fans, though.Word is that Iman Shumpert is close to returning pretty soon, which is music to Craig’s ears, as he declared that “when the Knicks are healthy, the Celtics can’t hold their jock.”
