Listening to WFAN over the last six months, you can’t help but hear that callers and even radio hosts are oddly simpatico: If the Knicks beat the Boston Celtics, then the season is a success. And that is unacceptable.
The Knicks will begin their most important playoff run in more than a decade on Saturday against the team that has been the class of the Eastern Conference since 2007.
In fact, I think it’s exactly what the Knicks need in order to challenge the Heat for the title.
With more than 50 wins for the New York Knicks and more than 27 points per game for himself, the numbers back Melo up. The Knicks won a division title, and Anthony will add the scoring title after the regular season ends Wednesday.
The Knicks should have their size back in time for their playoff opener, with Tyson Chandler, Kenyon Martin and — surprise! — Rasheed Wallace all on the mend.
Deron Williams had 29 points and 12 assists to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 101-93 win over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
Carmelo Anthony had 24 points and 10 rebounds as the Knicks extended their winning streak to eight Sunday night, beating the Boston Celtics 108-89.
J.R. Smith scored 32 points, Carmelo Anthony added 29 and the New York Knicks extended their winning streak to five games with a 100-85 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.
Tuesday’s game could be a preview of a potential first-round series in the Eastern Conference playoffs. New York (42-26) currently occupies the third spot while Boston (36-33) is 6 1/2 games behind, but has lost four games in a row.
Former Knick Ray Williams has passed away at 58.
The Nets reportedly had their eyes on Celtics forward Paul Pierce, but Brooklyn’s trade proposal wasn’t enough for Boston to pull the trigger.
Carmelo Anthony’s ill feelings toward Kevin Garnett didn’t last long. His streak of 20-point games goes on.
Whatever they do, the Knicks’ success will be determined by how they control Rondo. In many ways, their success this season will be determined by how they control the opponent’s quick guards off the dribble.
No matter what was said between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett during and after the last time the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics met, Anthony says the incident is behind him.
Boosted by renovations to Madison Square Garden, the Knicks’ value increased 41 percent to $1.1 billion. The Lakers were second at $1 billion.
