Did the Knicks want the play Miami more than Boston in the first round?
If so, this shot pretty much ruined. New York’s win and Boston’s loss means these two are almost certainly on a collision course, and Boston’s size will be a big challenge for the Knicks.
But that doesn’t make this shot any less pretty. As we said in Baseline to Baseline, knock Carmelo Anthony all you want, there are few guys you want taking the last shot more. He can create his own shot, he doesn’t fear the moment and he can knock them down. Just ask poor Danny Granger.
