I have no confidence whatsoever against the Heat, but the Celtics simply are not that good right now... If either JR and Carmelo show up, the Knicks should win. Unfortunately neither did last night.
I'm sh*tting bricks but we really should still take this series. We're the better team and have two shots at it.
Melo just really needs to step up and will the team to victory. He's the superstar -- if he's going to hold the ball and go iso every time he touches it he needs to be more effective.
Celtics have finally found their shot, we need to play better defense and be aggressive early -- our bigs got in foul trouble early while Garnett stayed clean. We need to attack him. When he's not on the court they're a completely different team defensively.
I wish Woodson would complain about the officiating too -- if Doc can manipulate the refs (officiating has completely changed since Game 2 when Doc complained) he should be able to as well. Woodson has been soundly outcoached on and off the court so far.
Worried about Chandler. He just doesn't look like the same guy.
Really, Felton is the only guy who showed up the last two games.
That said, if he Knicks blow THIS series, it will most certainly be a choke job.
Why can't it be both? The Sox showed grit, heart and talent to come back and win from such a deficit. The Yankees will forever be associated with the biggest choke job ever in the history of playoff baseball. And as you said, if the Knicks do it the same applies.
If the Knicks blow this it will be a way bigger choke than the '04 Yanks/Sox series.
A) Yanks/Sox were much more evenly matched. These Knicks are definitely (IMO anyway) better than these Celtics.
B) Baseball and Hockey are more flukey games and postseason success often relies more on momentum and luck, IMO. There's a reason why Basketball hasn't had a 3-0 comeback in a 7 games -- the team with more talent (in particular the more talented top players) almost always win. It's why 100 game winners get bounced in the LDS but everyone basically assumes the Heat are going back to back.
Getting smoked as expected.
edit: spoke too soon?

WTF is this?!
LOL. I changed the channel when they were up by 26. I come back and Celtics are on a 19 pt run. WTF???
Celts are out of gas. Dont know if they can get the stops they need here.
Nice win in Dump on the Charles...
Bring on the Pacers
and let's all wish a fond farewell to Vinnie Patrollie, Hoops fan
Knicks almost blew one in epic proportion. I'm proud of my octogenarian team for almost pulling it out. Shame. Would have been legendary. Knicks have zero chance of beating Heat so what's the diff? (Celts wouldn't have either)
I dunno, didn't they go 3 for 4 this year, including beating them at home? Didn't look it up, honestly don't know.
