The New York Knicks arrived wearing all black to Wednesday's playoffs game 5 in order to signify the Boston Celtics' funeral, but the Celtics came out victorious and the series will return to Boston for a game 6 on Friday.
Jeff Green was the leading scorer for the Celtics with 18 points (including a pair of clutch 3 pointers in the 4th quarter). 4 other players aside from Green scored double figures including Brandon Bass and Jason Terry with 17 points each, and Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce each scored 16.
After the game, Jordan Crawford had some interesting words for Carmelo Anthony (believed to be "that motherf#@ker f#cked your wife" - click here for video) and the Celtics and Knicks players had to be broken up. We will see how this affects Melo and the Knicks in game 6 and if they come out thirsty for blood.
Highlights above, box score below.

It was crazy reading the thoughts of Knicks nation this game. It went from smack-talking and nervous confidence to just plain nervousness, misery and Celtic /Ref hate. I love reading Knick fan comments, I hope you guys chuckle as much as I did.

Tonight, the Celtics will look to even up their series with the Knicks when they play what could be their final game at the TD Garden this season. The Celtics have been in complete control in these last two games, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Right now, the Celtics are the better team. They have more experience and more momentum. I'll be shocked if they drop...
On the eve of game 5, vs the Boston Celtics, New York Knicks super-sixth man says that their wouldn't even be a game 5 had he not elbowed Jason Terry in the closing minutes of game 3. From NY Daily News: Jason Terry goes by the nickname “Jet,” while the monikers Knicks fans will undoubtedly call the Boston Celtics guard will fall under the category of “parental discretion...
The Boston Celtics have an incredibly tall task ahead of them if they want to advance to the next round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. They are returning to New York on Wednesday night to face the Knicks, who have put Kevin Garnett and company in a 3-1 hole. If it’s bulletin-board material that the Celtics need to motivate them, JR Smith is doing his best to provide it.

As both teams crossed
The Red Sox comeback against the Yankees in 2004 was one of the greatest, if not the greatest, sporting events I'd ever witnessed in person.
Now, almost 10 years later, another Boston team is trying to do the same thing against New York. Can they do it? The odds are obviously extremely doubtful. On top of the fact that no NBA team has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit before...
Less than a week ago, the Boston Celtics trailed 3-0 in the series against age-old rivalries, the New York Knicks. Instead of submitting to defeat, the Celtics moved a step closer to doing the unthinkable when on Wednesday night they defeated the Knicks 92-86 in Game 5 of their best-of-seven series. Trailing 3-2, the Celtics will show their worth tonight in Boston in Game 6 and if...

Now, this is a series. Knicks and Celtics go back to Boston for Game Six on May 3rd at 7:00 pm. Boston won last night 92-86. The Celtics looked really good, while the Knicks looked lackluster to say the least. After going up 3-0, the Knicks are traveling back to Boston up just 3-2. Let's not choke here, fellas. A couple thoughts and notes on the Celtics' win.
J.R. Smith may have altered a series with one poor decision. He certainly forced his midweek plans to change.
When he dropped Boston's Jason Terry with an elbow to the chin late in Game 3 on Friday night, Smith earned a suspension that left the New York Knicks without their No. 2 scorer during the regular season for Game 4 on Sunday.
The Knicks didn't have enough offense...
