The Knicks are writing a new chapter of history after winning their first playoff series since 2000.
Jeff Green scored 18 points and the Boston Celtics stayed alive in the NBA playoffs, cutting the New York Knicks’ lead to 3-2 with a 92-86 victory Wednesday night.
The Celtics return to the TD Garden on Friday night for their first game since the Boston Marathon bombings.
Barring any terrible injuries, if the Knicks win Game 2 they should win the series. They are the better team and I can’t see the Celtics beating the Knicks four out of five games and winning the series.
It wasn’t a Merry Christmas for the Nets who were dominated by the Celtics 93-76.
Carmelo Anthony could very well be the Knicks’ power forward on opening night. This position switch has a lot of Knicks fans and NBA statistical gurus excited. I understand some of their sentiment, but much of it is based on wishful thinking rather than reality.
New York, get ready for another round vs. Boston. And no, we’re not talking Yankees-Red Sox or Jets-Patriots.
The United States reduced its roster to 13 players Sunday, cutting Jeff Green and JaVale McGee. USA Basketball made the moves before it beat France 86-55 in an exhibition game at Madison Square Garden. Cutting McGee leaves Tyson Chandler as the only true center on the American roster.
