Comments from the other side - Knicks 4/18

 I know that comments aren't as much fun to read when we lose, but these are worth it just to show how absolutely pathetic Knicks fans are.  I've never seen so much complaining about the refs.  Even the TNT announcers mentioned the fact that the Knicks were so physical that the refs could probably call a foul on them every time down.  Yes, the Celtics shot more free throws...

Avery Bradley (22 points, 9-14 FG, 2-3 3 FG) has my undying faith. When he takes pull-up jumpers on the break, or spots up in the corner for 3, I fully expect him to make the shot. Incredible. Rajon Rondo (20 points, 16 assists, 6 rebounds...
