Good Start

Raise your hand if you thought the Knicks would win the first two games of their series with Boston by playing very good defense and not by shooting a lot of threes. Anyone? Anyone?  I didn’t think so, but that’s what makes the first two games of the series so encouraging. The Knicks are thriving in areas they haven’t traditionally thrived in for this season. Sure, Carmelo is scoring in bunches, but the key in Game 1 and Game 2 was the defense which clamped down in a huge way in the second half of both of those contests.

I don’t know if that can continue. The Celtics are going to draw strength from the Boston crowd Friday and they simply can’t shoot as poorly as they have. (Sidebar- nice job by the MSG crowd changing the chant to “Celtics Suck!”) But, at worst I suspect the Knicks will split the next two games, and that is all any New York fan could ask for.

    Either the celtics win both in Boston or they get swept. I don’t see a split in the cards. They remain a dangerous team with their backs against the wall, hopefully it will be interesting.

      Don’t know about that. If Smith is suspended for Game 4, I think the Celtics win it.

    Pierce has been beyond horrible in last few weeks. They looked good a while ago but last six weeks or so they aged about 5 years since.

    You got your split, wish they hadn’t
