    Game Thread 2013 Playoffs - Round 1 Game 2 / Knicks vs Celtics - 04/23




    Hello and welcome to the 2013 NBA Playoffs Game 2 between our New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics!

    The New York Knicks took the first win of the series with a huge win in game one, 78-85 with Carmelo Anthony scoring 36 points! Let's freshen our memory with the full highlights:



    Other things to cheer for:

    JR Smith has been named 2012-13 Kia NBA Sixth Man

    Pablo Prigioni is listed as probable while Woody made the following statement: "If he can go tomorrow, we'll start him, absolutely"

    The Knicks must not lose game two under any circumstances so they can travel without any pressure to Boston for games 3 and 4, Kenyon Martin knowing what it's like:
    Its huge, Game 1 hero Kenyon Martin said of Game 2. You dont want to go up there 1-1 facing that team and that crowd. Ive been there.


    Also, two random things that happened on this date to get you hyped for the game, looking back into history
    In 1997 John Starks receives the same award JR Smith got today, becoming the second Knick to win the NBA Sixth Man Award

    In 1972 New York advances to the NBA Finals with a 111-102 Game Five victory at Boston!


    Starting Lineups for tonight:

    Yes Rady! great gamethread! i'm totally pumped, like Arnold on 'roids, for this game! 3 day wait is just too
    freaking long! I loved the game 1 recap video, JR's dunk and spin n swish, Canyon's block, Melo's business
    as usual scoring machinations... did not like seeing Avery the label Bradley consistently infiltrating the paint
    on backdoor plays, just BEATING his man to the hoop. but Feltip made up for it with some serious passing.
    the best pass of the night was Melo's perfect toss to KMartian after Garknee came out for the double. THAT
    kind of game will take the Knicks to the next level (round).

    Props for recognizing John Starks 6th man of year on same day as Junior Swish's award,
    and superb recognition re advancement to '72 Finals with victory over Bostonians! YES!!!!

    Looking forward to the Prigger getting back into the swing of things, if he can keep
    the assist/turnover ratio in it's proper place, Knicks should assume command of series.

    I'm more psyched than Psy on a heavy metal Gangnam Style

    I think Prig will make a difference if he starts tonight. Cope should check in when Melo is resting and Woodson has to run plays for him. If Cope gets the ball in the right places, he will not have to dribble too much and turn the ball over. We should use his offensive skills correctly.

    We are flat out better than these guys, especially as we get closer to full strength with Prigioni back. Let's not pull a Brooklyn and let the road team steal one on our home court. Let's go Knicks!

    Quick two fouls on Garnett. Not even 4 minutes into the game. We have to exploit this.
