Found March 04, 2012 on Celtics Life:
The Celtics overcame a lackluster 1st half effort to beat the Knicks and remain undefeated since the All Star break. Rondo had his second triple double of the week with 18 points, 17 rebounds and 20 assists. Yes, you read that right. It's a Rondoful world and if you don't like it too bad.  Of course the Celtics would've lost the game without Paul Pierce's game tying 3. Pierce was a beast with 34 points and continues to play like the absolute stud he is.  Bass was solid as always with 18 points. Garnett struggled from the floor but was solid with 18 points and 10 boards. Ray contributed 12 points despite playing sick. For the Knicks, Jeremy Lin had a subpar game. I'm not sure why Celtics fans were booing him. This guy seems like an awesome human being and he gets the most out of his abilities. You have to root for this guy. Carmelo Anthony had 25 points including some big shots at the end of the game. Steve Novak continued his torrid shooting with 14 points...

Rondo puts on a clinic vs. Lin, Knicks

It's still too early to say whether the Knicks' catapult into relevancy is a legitimate transformation or just...

'Lin-til' soup for you

Even though "Lin-sanity" might be cooling off now, it sure has not stopped New York City restaurants from trying to cash in on New York Knicks' Jeremy Lin's rise atop NBA popularity. By now you must have heard all the plays on Lin's name. From "Lin-credible," "Lin-ing" to the ever popular "Lin-sanity" now comes a new one should...

Knicks, Rangers to rise prices in 2012-13

POINTS OF INTEREST Boston is a very good defensive team. They allow the 3rd lowest points per game in the NBA. Balanced attack but cannot keep up with us on transition game. Rondo's name is in trade rumors. KEYS TO THE GAME Should be interesting to see how our Knicks take on the Celtics now that we're back at full strength. * Limit Paul Pierce who is very efficient...
