Knicks 90 Celtics 76
The Knicks manhandled the Boston Celtics in game three tonight, winning by a final score of 90-76. Coming into the series, the Knicks were known as a team that can live and die by the three-point shot. The Knicks were a team capable of scoring 110 points at any time, and while they are still very capable of that, their identity has changed, making them a much more feared team.
Now, the already accomplished Knicks have mastered their defense, and are playing the best defense of the season, in my opinion, for any team in the playoffs right now. In the first three games of this series, the Knicks have held the Celtics to an average of 75 points per game. They have not permitted Boston to score in the 80′s.
The game was in control the entire way, unlike the past two games. The Knicks only deficit was 2-0 after a Jason Terry lay-up to start off the game. Even though Carmelo Anthony got off to a slow shooting start, the rest of the team was ab...

Raymond Felton of the New York Knicks gets a ton of heat for being what some people refer to as “overweight.” It is more of a long running joke than actual truth, but it never fails to rear its ugly head when the Knicks are playing. During Sunday’s Celtics win over the Knicks in the Playoffs the fat jokes were flying around Twitter and we decided to pick out some of the best...

BOSTON — Carmelo Anthony was so reserved in complimenting Raymond Felton that the Knicks point guard, seated less than two feet away, could not help laughing. Felton had just finished dicing up the Celtics in a decisive playoff victory, and the best Anthony could manage to say was that his teammate’s 15-point, 10-assist performance was “what he’s supposed to do.”
Just when you thought that you knew everything about New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, this little gem comes to light.
NewsDay’s Barbara Baker posted these tweets yesterday about Mr. Anthony and his love of classic crooners, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra:

Knicks 90 Celtics 97
At the end of the half, things were bad for the Knicks. New York had been averaging just fewer than 12 turnovers per game in the first three matches in the series. Today was a different story, as they had 12 turnovers in the first half. In addition to their sloppy ball handling and passing, the Knicks were shooting atrociously. A team...
When the New York Knicks finally returned to the playoffs two years ago, the Boston Celtics let them hang around for only four games.
Now Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks are on the verge of beating Boston, and they want to do it just as quickly.

It’s such an exciting time to be a New York Knickerbockers fan. The Knicks hold a 2-0 lead over the Celtics in the 1st round, J.R. Smith was recently named NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year, and Carmelo Anthony is playing the best and most fearless basketball of his career. These things have directly led to the success of this year’s team. Even Coach Woodson...

Final Score: Knicks: 90 Celtics: 97
The Knicks once again spotted the Celtics a first half to forget but unlike Game 1 and 2 they were not able to finish the comeback this time around. The Celtics went up by as many as 20 points but once again imploded in the second half, giving the Knicks an opportunity to get back in the game and even take a lead at the end. ...
BOSTON — There was an odd vibe after the buzzer sounded at TD Garden on Sunday, after the Celtics had outlasted the Knicks in overtime to postpone playoff elimination. Both teams were upbeat and hopeful, which is seldom the case after a hard-fought playoff game.
At the podium, Raymond Felton sat confidently saying how much he looks forward to Wednesday’s Game 5 in New York. In...
Knicks vs Celtics: ABC 1PM
Today in Boston the New York Knicks have the chance to sweep the Boston Celtics and head home for as long rest until the beginning of Round 2 of the NBA playoffs against the Hawks or the Pacers. Today the New York Knicks will be without the services of J.R. Smith, who was suspended by the league, due to a flagrant 2 foul against Jason Terry in game 3.
Knicks power forward, Amar’e Stoudemire who had been sidelined for six weeks after undergoing surgery on his right knee has recently stated that his return to the team is possible for the second round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs. With the Knicks’ current 2-0 series lead over the Boston Celtics, it appears that this could likely become a reality Coach Woodson and the Knicks could...
BOSTON – It must have been the second half, because the Celtics committed countless turnovers, couldn't run a coherent offensive system and managed to squeeze 31 points out of 40 shots. The offensive gameplan appears to be to run a pick-and-pop for Paul Pierce to get a mismatch posting up on a guard like Pablo Prigioni or Raymond Felton. While he has scored or at least gotten...
