New York Knicks
The Knicks fans are right up there with the Heat and Lakers fans for being bandwagon fans and also classless. I'm glad that Melo at least called them out for booing Pierce when he was giving a tribute to the bombing victims. Seeing them complain so much about the officiating when they were calling the game fairly evenly, missing calls both ways but not as bad as they make it seem. I hate fans that trash their own team when they aren't playing well. It goes from Melo is the greatest to Melo is trash to Melo is the greatest and the Knicks are awesome to they are stupid to they are awesome again. Lots of comments today.
If this goes longer than 5 games I'll be pissed.
Boston doesn't stand a chance.
This will be a nail biting tough series Pierce always seems to bring his A game to the garden, kg antics, and the refs, NY has to play at a consistent high level to win
I just hope bums like Courtney Lee and Joe Crawful don't go off on us. ...

8 a.m. ET: After pulling off the seemingly impossible by scoring just eight points in the fourth quarter of a loss in Game 1, the Celtics look to do something much less jaw-dropping in Game 2 by winning the game.
Jeff Green, who scored 26 points, and Carmelo Anthony, who dropped a game-high 36 points, were the clear stars of Game 1. But Celtics coach Doc Rivers was immensely impressed...

Jeff Green was busy carrying the Celtics, lifting them into the lead after three quarters at Madison Square Garden, when Paul Pierce jumped in, grabbed the mic and performed the basketball-playing equivalent of a Kanye West impersonation.
“Imma let you finish, but …”
Only Pierce, like West, never did let Green finish. (Yes, in this scenario, Green is Taylor Swift. Nobody ever...
Knicks 85, Celtics 78
The Celtics did everything they had to do to be in a position to steal Game 1. They contained the league’s leading scorer, got Jeff Green going on offense, and kept it close before collapsing in the final minutes. So the question is, should they be encouraged by their performance over the first 42 minutes? Or discouraged about their...
