KNICKS VS CELTICS
I have the only 12-year-old that sleeps in for Christmas. When she finally did wake up to find many Christmas presents under our tree I was about to watch NBA basketball.
TNT: Charles, Kenny, EJ and Shaq. (I will not give any thoughts on Shaq, it was just 60 minutes. We’ll have to wait and see)
Steve Kerr and Marv on the broadcast live from 33rd and 8th.
I loved TNT’s intro with today’s players and old school guys. Great stuff. Who came up with that idea?
Knicks win 106-104.
It sure wasn’t Hondo vs Bradley or Cowens vs Gianilli. It wasn’t even Frazier vs Jo-Jo White.
But it did have some sort of playoff like atmosphere.
First off, I really think the NY Knicks should go back to their old logo…I’m talking back in the day logo.
Keep in mind the Celtics played without Paul Pierce.
Carmelo dropped 37 for New York. Melo was a plus 15 while on the floor.
Rajon Rondo had 31 and 13 assists, 5 steals, 5 turnovers and 5 rebounds. Still trying to figure out why he didn’t take a shot the last 4:25 of the game? Rondo looks good…stronger and more confident. I think he has to be their guy down the stretch. He looks more under control too.
Sasha Pavlovic played 15 minutes today and didn’t take a shot?
Tyson Chandler had 6 blocks today for Knicks. I don’t think they blocked 6 shots total last season…
Brandon Bass is a beast. Great pick up by Boston. 20 pts 11 rebounds.
Ugly incident at the end of the game when after missing a last second shot, Kevin Garnett got into it with Billy Walker and grabbed Walker by the throat. Both players were teammates in Boston.
There were 4 people involved in the Knicks-Celtics game on Christmas Day born in Brooklyn, NY. (And don’t say Spike Lee either)
