Setting quite the commanding tone, the Knicks overpowered the Celtics for the secibs time this season in Boston, coming out victorious by a score of 100-85 on Tuesday night.With so many things going their way at TD Garden, it was difficult to be disappointed with the way the Knicks (short-handed without Tyson Chandler, among others) kept up their level of intensity and gritty effort throughout the contest.There were plenty of positives to take away from the win, and with that in mind, myself and co-host Phife Dawg of "A Tribe Called Quest" teamed up yet again for the latest edition of the KnicksJournal.com Podcast to break things down.The two of us hit the ground running with some post-game reaction, but the fun doesn't just stop there. In addition to examining the team's latest victory, we discuss who and what types of things will be key to the Knicks' continuing their winning ways as they propel themselves into the postseason. Ironically enough, with a win against the Celtics on Tuesday, New York climbed back into second place in the Eastern Conference. If the postseason began right now, the Knicks' reward for achieving such a high seed, would coincidentally, be playing Boston in the first round of the playoffs.Though New York has been able to put up two W's in the victory column as visitor, the Celtics are certainly in no way the type of opponent you sneeze at. No matter who the Knicks play, they'll have their work cut out for them.From there, Phife and I also discuss the Miami Heat's remarkable winning streak, and ponder when it may eventually come to an end. Where does this team rank amongst the all-time greatest teams the NBA has ever seen grace its big league hardwood? A true basketball historian, the rapper weighs in to share his thoughts on the matter.As Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James continue to lead their respective teams to great things, can Kobe Bryant hope to do the same for the Lakers? Before returning to some Knickerbocker chat to close things out, we address the possibility of Kobe and company stepping up to deliver a massive first-round playoff series upset as an eighth seed.To hear all these burning questions and issues addressed by myself and Phife, make sure you listen in for some great discussion!Enjoy! As always, you can follow me on Twitter @KnicksJournal and hit up Phife Dawg as well @IamThePHIFER.
