Woodson can't afford another embarrassing loss to the Celtics. Our roster can't afford another embarrassing loss to the Celtics. If we don't win or at least come very close, heads will roll. Dolan is fired up and our front office is fighting to get his support to make a deal. Let's just go out and play like we did in the 2nd quarter of the Bulls game and we'll be fine. Let's go Knicks!
Bargs and Shump both struggling right now. Melo isn't making the Boston defense have to work to contain him. I want to see Stat and THJ sooner rather than later. Instead, I'm sure we'll get JR Smith.
Well, we did get Stat instead of JR, but that front court of Stat, Melo, and Bargs is going to hurt us on defense and the boards.
Stat coming out aggressive. Offense should run through him until it stops working. Melo is getting his without the need to feature him in the 1st already.
I don't care what anyone says, the idea that this Celtics team was built to tank is ridiculous. They have a decent roster of guys who play well together. When they get Rondo back, they are easily 0.500 team in the East.
21 - 2 run. I don't care if the other team is the original Dream Team, you can't get this badly run off the court against the same team twice in a week.


I was one of the few that picked this years Celtics to be a playoff team this year...Looks like i was right. We can't beat these guys even w/o Rondo....sigh
It's like Melo and Stat are the only 2 guys who the rim will allow to make shots on our team. Shump and THJ are tossing up friggin airballs.
