rivals. Whenever these two teams get together there is always a
playoff atmosphere, even in the preseason. It seems that they are
always on the verge of a brawl. Every game is hard fought, that is for
There was no shortage of drama between them in their
last meeting as KG inspired Carmelo Anthony to chase him into the locker
room and then wait for him outside the Celtics' bus. Anthony has
said that he is fine with KG and that he's only looking forward to the
game. He blamed fasting for being so testy in that last meeting.
Hopefully he has his pregame meal before this one, but don't count on
KG not trying to get into his head again.

The Celtics couldn’t buy a bucket from outside during their loss to the Knicks on Thursday, and outside shooting is something the C’s could stand to improve. Danny Ainge just might have a solution in mind. ESPN’s Marc Stein tweeted on Friday morning that he’s hearing the Celtics are “ramping up their interest” in Magic guard J.J. Redick. Stein reports that he heard this...
The Boston Celtics reportedly instructed security guards not to allow Honey Nut Cheerios boxes or signs into the TD Bank Garden for the team’s game against the New York Knicks on Thursday.
The last time the teams played, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and Celtics forward Kevin Garnett got into a fight that resulted in double-technical fouls. Melo was so upset with KG he confronted...
LOTTA HONEY NUTS OUT THERE
Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks are headed to Boston for the first time since the Honey Nut Cheerios melee, so the Knicks star has reportedly decided to bring along some extra security.
Raymond Felton has been cleared for contact and remains hopeful he can play Saturday in Philadelphia. But Felton said he will be smart and cautious because if he breaks his right pinkie again, he’ll miss two to three months. “I want to play Saturday,” he said. “But if I got to sit out another two more games and come back next week, that’s what I’ll do.”
The Celtics, according to Marc Stein of ESPN, are interested in persuing J.J.

For the first time since 2006, the Knicks came away victorious in Boston on Thursday night.While such a win puts an end to such a frustrating and traumatizing losing streak, perhaps it also symbolizes why this a season is one more different than any other in recent years for the Knicks.Clearly an NBA powerhouse over the past few seasons, the Celtics have always seemed to have New...
8:00: The Celtics, coming off their tough loss to the Cavs, will host the Knicks tonight at the Garden. The C's currently sit at just 20-21 with a lack of hope in the fan base. If they win tonight, then I'll feel confident again. But I doubt that that will happen. As always, updates will be available here after every quarter. Enjoy the game.

Does Carmelo need money for a new jacket?
As if we needed more drama from the "Honey Nut Cheerios Incident" on the day the Knicks visit Boston, it now appears that Carmelo Anthony wants a refund for the fines he received from his one game suspension. From an ESPN New York story:
New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has filed an appeal with the National Basketball...

On a night that New York Knicks’ star Carmelo Anthony shot an unsightly 11-28 from the field, it was a pass from ‘Melo that was the defining moment of New York’s 89-86 road victory against the stumbling Boston Celtics.
With the Knicks clinging onto a two-point lead with 70 seconds remaining in the game, Anthony received...
As most of you remember, a couple weeks back Carmelo Anthony got into a heated exchange with Kevin Garnett during a game between the Knicks and Celtics. After the game Carmelo waited for Garnett by the locker room, and again at the team bus. Part of the reason for the argument is that Garnett said Melo's wife smelled like Honey Nut Cheerio's. Not really sure what they...
J.R. Smith is having a great year on the court for the Knicks. So why is he finding his way in the news for things he says off the court?
He actually never even physically said the things that have gotten the attention. He instead hits the Twitter world and is finding ways to take jabs at people through the World Wide Web rather than saying it to their faces.
The latest “tweet...
