We want to beat them, Let’s just be quite frank about them: We always want to beat Boston. New York, in anything, wants to beat Boston, and when we do it’s a great feeling. Right now, we’re playing good basketball. A great road win for us, especially here in this arena knowing how hostile it can get here, knowing how well they play here at home in front of their fans. It just says a lot about our team.
