Game 19: Celtics vs. Knicks, 12pm

Screen shot 2013-12-06 at 10.34.28 PM

This afternoon, at 12:00pm, the Knicks host the Boston Celtics at MSG.

After snapping their 9-game losing streak against the Nets on Thursday, the team continued their climb back with a win over the Magic on Friday night. The Knicks’ two game winning streak is their longest of the season.

The Celtics enter the game at 9-12 after beating the Nuggets on Friday night. First year head coach Brad Stevens has the Celtics exceeding their lowly preseason expectations despite the continued absence of Rajon Rondo.

A team that is rebuilding and playing without their best player just beat us by 41 at MSG.

*Let that sink in for a minute*

Post-game thread is up. Nice to see the promptitude of it.

If there is any justice for this loss, Woody and his family will be able to take a long Christmas cruise this year. Bon Voyage, Woody.

Didn't see the game (thankfully!) but, how do you get your butt kicked at home by Boston?

Woodson about to blame himself for the team laying an egg.

So Woodson got out-coached by a rookie coach (NBA) that doesn't have a legit point guard...wow

Lots of Knicks jerseys and Tees intended as presents being returned tomorrow.  They'll be on the Marshall's clearance RACK at this rate.

Guess keeping Chris Smith over Diogu and Powell was a great decision. No hustle players...

What the Celtics are doing to us should be illegal in all 50 states.

Enjoy the rest of this Sunday folks.  Total waste of time watching this garbage.  I think everyone partied and was operating on a few hours of sleep.

If someone said that the reserves would be playing yet again in this game, I don't think we'd imagine it'd be like this.

What happened to Olynik or whatever the long-haired Boston pick is named?

You guys think it's a Joke..but Karma is the reason for this play. Doland's greed for the Orange Uniform $$$$ is why this is happening. We will suck until we get rid of the Orange Jerseys. I'm serious as hell!

Is there a reason why we are still fouling?

@OLD_KNICK Pressure is greater. NY is a tough home crowd to please.

Wicksell
Wicksell

@OLD_KNICK He was horrible, he made Jordan Crawford look like an all-star today and he did nothing on offense...

@Wicksell Brad Stevens looks legit  (anybody who can make Jordan Crawford look like a serviceable NBA PG deserves props).  


I think Rondo will want to stick out the Boston rebuild with him.

@OLD_KNICK I'm really curious to hear post game comments from these guys.

19 of those from Melo...meaning the rest of the starters got 9 points....

@moneyball Are the Knicks going to have a sleeved uniform this year as well?

@jax13 Is there a reason why we're still watching?

@Tikki @Wicksell I agree about Stevens. He's done a great job so far. And like you said once he has Rondo back, they'll be even better. What amazes me is that he obviously went in with a defensive game plan to not double Melo...and Woodson never countered that, instead we went back to one on one, iso basketball...
