Quantcast

Maybe the greatest win of the season so far? I haven't really had a lot of ill will against the Knicks, but maybe that's because the Celtics always beat the Knicks. Reading through the comments, it's pretty evident that that's why. The Knicks fans hate the Celtics. It's great to see how much they fear Paul Pierce. It seems like Pierce always has great games at Madison Square Garden. Anyway, enjoy what Knicks fans said..

Top Three:
lol.. jr smith pulling a mark sanchez..

i have a bad feeling pierce is gonna rip our hearts out for the 100th time

I would LOVE for Melo to punch K.G right in his mouth. Not a supporter of violence, but love how Melo refuses to back down from no man.

Yeah, umm, about that...

Didn't catch this. Thanks for the update. The Celtics being without Rondo while we're featuring both Melo and Stoudemire? At home in N.Y? I like our chances.

Rondo is out, easy win baby!!!!

If I were to sum up in one reason why the Knicks should fear the Celtics, it would be they have Rondo and we Don't.
Easy Win, count it, Money in the Jag(uar)!!!!!!!

Oh man, you've double jinxed us!
Has anyone notices that Melo has stolen Paul Pierces game mannerisms- ie the smug smile and shaking of the head after a particularly damaging 3pt? Hopefully Melo will be doing it more than Pierce tonight...

I'm calling it now. I just have that feeling. Against the Boston Celtics. Carmelo Anthony, tonight, is breaking the all-time scoring record for Madison Square Garden during a single game. Kobe Bryant holds the record with 61 points. Melo's scoring at least 62 points tonight.
The key? A strong first quarter. A really strong first quarter to set the pace/momentum. Melo drop's 20 points during the first quarter, and he's going for the record tonight.

Really hope tonight starts the era of us mopping up the floor with the celtics as we've watched way too many old fashioned ass whoopings the last few seasons.

we're gonna win this.
Melo's gonna wake up and that'll be that.
Our defense has been solid enough, and they don't have Rondo.

I fully agree 100%. Especially at home inside of MSG. I fully expect us to blow Boston out of the waters here in the 2nd half, but if not; I'll settle for a 1 point victory. I do agree, a loss against the Celtics without Rondo would be hard to swallow moving forward.

Ok no Rondo AND Pierce with 4 fouls early. We need to make a run and put this game away

I agree. We're not playing up to our ability and/or potential but at the same time... The cream usually rises to the top here in the NBA. I'm confident we can close these guys out during the 4th quarter ala the Championship Round.

definitely not a game to remember for Melo overall, but I think he can get it together for the last 2 minutes.
We're gonna win this game, I can feel it :)

Full Slate:

Seems our players hate the Celtics as much as Knick fans do- this game had better not end with a Paul Pierce clutch three & smug smile!
I did read this quote a writer just tweeted:
Doc said Knicks "do a great job of reaching and grabbing and holding, and they do it enough where eventually it becomes part of the game."
Shameless! Coming from the Celtics it's absolutely hilarious!
I expect Courtney Lee to be the scrub of the game (he's actually an okay player who I wanted us to get this offseason, but he's sucked this year).
A win vs the Celtics is extra satisfying, hope we take care of business!

Agree- Plus I haven't forgotten last season when Boston started off poorly then went on a tear the second half of the season- never count them out.

I wouldn't hate it if we gave out some hard fouls to Pierce or KG...just saying.

Melo's not off to the greatest of all starts but DAMN are these Knicks DOMINATING the game (early on)!


Really hope tonight starts the era of us mopping up the floor with the celtics as we've watched way too many old fashioned ass whoopings the last few seasons.

Its pretty nice seeing how supportive Melo is of Amare

heinson is such a homer.. listening to him is actually funny.... smart guy, yet his homerism makes him sound dumb at times...

lol.. jr smith pulling a mark sanchez..

we're gonna win this.
Melo's gonna wake up and that'll be that.

I jinxed Melo On a night where I predicted 62 points for Melo, he only puts up 1 point during the 1st quarter

I hate Tony Brothers..

tom heinson said "tony Brothers, are you my brutha?"
rofl,this guy is so dopey sometimes...

distracted by trying to get position on Garnett. This Celtics team are very aggressive and getting away with it. this is gonna be a fight. Very ugly basketball

Novak with the worse double team ever

Melo just got HOT here in the 2nd quarter baby. Knicks as a team playing strong defense.

A big "fail"? Wrong. We've yet to miss the postseason since landing Amar'e Stoudemire. Maybe you missed 2010-2011 where Stoudemire took our team on his back, and led our franchise to the postseason for the first time in what felt like forever. Maybe you missed the part where Amar'e set a franchise record for consecutive games of 30+ points. Maybe you missed the part where Melo forced his way our of Denver in order to compete alongside Stoudemire moving forward.
A complete failure? Due to getting hurt? Wrong. That's basketball, and injuries DO happen in sports.

Hate and respect for Paul Pierce

agree. also avery bradley is a frikkin pitbull on D

Why are we doubling PP with brewer on him in the post? I thought brewer was a good defender? He should be able to stop him or at least make him work hard. That double team put us out of position for the rebound and cost us a damn 3.

My hate greatly outweighs my respect for him. Him bowing at center court really got to me

LOL they leave the only person scoring open in PP.

I have no idea why we keep leaving Pierce open for 3 when he is the only one scoring.

good D by Amare to deny Pierce. Happy with anyone but Pierce shooting

Looking at play it looked like JR should have rotated to Pierce which he missed. Didn't think that was Amare's rotation.

I fully expect Carmelo to get hot in the 2nd half.
What I'm worried honestly is the defense. It's not for lack of effort, it just seems like they're not exactly playing smart defense and I'm not overly confident of the Knicks being able to keep the Celtics under 100 points.

we should not lose to the Cs without Rondo.

I'd rather have Rondo playing defense versus Bradley. Good lord that guy is stuck on our guards like glue. Rondo plays lazy defense. goes for steals, plays free safetly, roams.

I fully agree 100%. Especially at home inside of MSG. I fully expect us to blow Boston out of the waters here in the 2nd half, but if not; I'll settle for a 1 point victory. I do agree, a loss against the Celtics without Rondo would be hard to swallow moving forward.

melo is not playing smart. he is wrestling with PP while he is in foul trouble.

Something about MSG that brings the best out of Pierce. I've watched about 3-4 Celts games and in those games Pierce looked as good as done. Shot a low % and just looked somewhat uninterested or just flat out tired. Tonite he looks like he bathed in the fountain of Youth. Wouldn't be surprised in his next game if he plays an average game.

bradley gambles a lot. He is one spin move away from leaving his player wide open.

Ok no Rondo AND Pierce with 4 fouls early. We need to make a run and put this game away

anybody else want to beat the living sh1t out of the boston announcers?

did bass just drive past kidd? how slow can kidd be?

Kidd is playing so bad right now.

Lol did that bald guy sitting behind Melo pull his shirt down for him?

it seems no matter how hard carmelo tries, he is just not a good defender..

We are beating ourselves tonight

I agree. We're not playing up to our ability and/or potential but at the same time... The cream usually rises to the top here in the NBA. I'm confident we can close these guys out during the 4th quarter ala the Championship Round.

Sullinger with two flops tonight.

as much as i hate the celtics they are a superior defensive team

who ever novak is guarding, gets the ball and scores 75% of the time

man the knicks are so bad at closeing quarters

****in' Sullinger....

i have a bad feeling pierce is gonna rip our hearts out for the 100th time

LOL, Novacks Chandler like Defense on display this game. Getting destroyed out there just for the chance to take a couple of open 3's!!!

I think Novack has giving up 20 points, is floor spacing worth this abuse!!!!

terrible shot by MELO! terrible!
Kidd was wide open

Did you all just see Melo FIGHTING on the defensive end?!?!?!? WOW!!!

I would LOVE for Melo to punch K.G right in his mouth. Not a supporter of violence, but love how Melo refuses to back down from no man.

And K.G just WOKE UP the sleeping beast of Melo! Melo for 3!

crazy game...mellloooo!!

Here comes Melo looking for payback.

Tensions rising...

we may have lost our composure a wee bit

calm down melo

I see that Amare took rebounding lessons from Steve Novak

Melo is doing what Kobe did last night

Melo self destructing.

This is different from when the Knicks used to just whine and unravel against aggressive teams

as much as i hate boston i give them credit they play smart on both ends

Boston is a dirty team. They foul so much the refs just call every foul that they are committing. I am just glad the team isn't complaining about it. But we will definitely pull this one out. Boston Sucks!

Is there a smart KNick out there tonight?

JR is the definition of a chucker

amare your killling me man... stay with your fkng man

Hot heads on the court. KG talking smack. I miss Sheed. Someone give it right back to KG...

FU Pierce damn

Melo's only 6 FGs away from 50% too. Damn close.

Melo losing it.
Garnett in his head.

They in melo's head. He gotta get right.

Thats why boston is a tough team. they play smart, play great d and they aso know how to gget into your head

Might be his worst game of the season.

Garnett has to do his schtick. Woodson needs to adress that. Don't get all tangled up in emotions.

definitely not a game to remember for Melo overall, but I think he can get it together for the last 2 minutes.
We're gonna win this game, I can feel it :)

really this team is not good defensively

they also cant beat great defensive teams like boston and the bulls. even withtout rondon and rose

Melo not the only one having a off night. Not sure why Woodson is switching every pick which is leaving us with a mismatch every time down. Melo ends up on Garnett and Chandler ends up on Pierce on the perimeter

If Pierce takes another ****ing bow at center court, I want someone to tackle him.

pierce owns us again i called that

At least make some sense.
Boston's not even top 10 in points allowed and 18th in FG percentage against.
Some "great defense" Boston has.

wow these boston announcers!

i don't understand why amare's corpse has been in there over camby. can someone explain?

he loves rubbing it in...

Pierce is such a ****.

Game over. Cant beat Boston at home without Rondo. Hope we dont see them or chicago in the 1st round

I think Woody must have lipstick on his ass

the 'Paul Pierce sucks'chants alweays fire him up... I wish the MSG faithful would retire that one

The celtics are a good example of how important a lock down guard is. That team was struggling without Bradley. So, to everyone in a freakin panic, calm down. Once Shump and Felton comes back, the defense and offense will improve.

spike is so embarassing

Bradley is an extremely underrated offensive player when given the opportunity.

I can't wait for Paul Pierce to retire

Best way to defend melo is by being physical with him, Even if you get into foul trouble it will mess him up for the rest of the game mentally. Once melo is mentally gone he reverts back into last year melo.

Did Carmelo just go To Celts lockeroom? Looked Like Kurt tried to stop him

On the bright side we could be the Fighting Irish losing 28-0 at the half of the BSC championship game.

Its very concerning. Celtics also played mind games with Melo to make it even worse. We really shoulda had this.

hope this isnt a year that boston has our number and screw with us mentally like a couple of years ago. they beat us without their best player!

Celts won when they penetrated Melo's mind.
Garnett tuned him out and Melo kept yapping, and missing shots.
Then Pierce did his thing.
NYMentality, You wait until 10:15 to feed the family?

C'mon Melo...waiting outside the Celtics locker room?


This was winnable game, Garnett made Starmelo his bitch. We let the Celts take us out of the game emotionally, and we still have no recognizable offense.

They lost by 6 points despite an awful shooting night from the 2nd leading scorer in the league.

that means nothing. Celtics still have a formidable team. Celtics were playing like garbage with Rondo minus Bradley. The difference in this game was Bradley's disruption on defense. There are few "should have won" type games in the NBA. It's all about matchups. This isn't Playstation.

Bad loss. Melo was awful but his leadership and attitude were worse.
He let Garnet get in his head. KG is such a chump too.

Bad loss, I'm calling it right now Celtics will take the division.

I want to see if Sullinger gets a flopping bill.

Garnett and Pierce are first rate D-Bags but their games are beautiful to watch and it's not even debateable.
