Celtics Knicks

  1. Knicks/Celtics Game 6 all about ‘Melo, New York

    May 3, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Garnett, Jeff Green

    We know exactly what we are going to get from the Boston Celtics in Game 6 Friday night — they are going to defend hard, Kevin Garnett is going to crash the boards and get his points, Paul Pierce will create looks for himself. They will scrap, that’s what champions on the verge of elimination…

  2. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Apr 25, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Mike D’Antoni is not as sold on Rajon Rondo as everybody else. This is what the screwed up politics of the Knicks front office does — neither Amar’e Stoudemire or Carmelo Anthony would really say anything about Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni. That’s not because they don’t like them, it’s fear of crossing an owner…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Knicks take one more swing at Celtics

    Apr 24, 2011, 1:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Let’s start with the injury report: No Chauncey Billups and maybe no Amar’e Stoudemire for the New York Knicks. No Shaquille O’Neal for Boston, but that has not mattered. New York always had just a puncher’s chance in this series — they were less talented but if Stoudemire could take over one game, if Anthony…

  4. No Shaq in Game 4 for Celtics

    Apr 24, 2011, 9:47 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    They clearly don’t need him against New York — Boston is up 3-0 in the series — but the plans to have Shaquille O’Neal back continues to be pushed back. Doc Rivers has ruled Shaq out for Game 4 at Madison Square Garden Sunday, according to ESPN Boston. “He’s not playing [Sunday],” said Rivers. “We…

  5. No Shaq for Game 3 Friday, but Game 4 could happen

    Apr 22, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT

    Injured Boston Celtics O'Neal talks to teammate Allen during the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series against the New York Knicks in Boston

    Welcome back to Shaq Watch 2011… Shaquille O’Neal has traveled with the team, he is in New York where maybe the bright lights will inspire him. But not for Game 3 Friday. He is out for that. Our man A. Sherrod Blakely from Comcast New England caught up with Shaq, but he wasn’t in the…

  6. NBA playoffs return to Manhattan, will New York like the show?

    Apr 22, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    Spike Lee

    The NBA playoffs return to the heart of New York, to Madison Square Garden Friday night after seven long years away and will be welcomed back like the prodigal son. Celebrities will ring the court — including Spike Lee in some all-orange disaster of an outfit — and profanity-laced chants will rain down on the…

  7. Your daily Shaq update: Maybe Game 4, maybe not

    Apr 21, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    UPDATE 3:42 pm: From the Department of Redundancy Department, we have an update on our update: Shaq traveled with the team to New York, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England. Based on what Doc Rivers said before, that makes Shaq questionable for Game 4 on Easter Sunday. Which is a lot better…

  8. Knicks need to execute late or Celtics will be executioner

    Apr 20, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Anthony and head coach D'Antoni react in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    The Knicks are not dead in their series against the Celtics. But when they take the floor Friday night in a shaking-the-building loud Madison Square Garden, there will be a guy standing in the corner wearing a full length black hooded robe, with a boney hand holding a sickle. He’s waiting for just one more…

  9. Doc Rivers denies report Shaq is out for playoffs

    Apr 20, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    shaq-return-april-1

    UPDATE 2:09 pm: As one would expect, Celtics coach Doc Rivers shot down the report saying Shaquille O’Neal is done for the playoffs. Our man A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England went to the source and talked to Rivers: I know that’s not true,” Rivers told CSNNE.com. “He’s going to play. I just don’t…

  10. Celtics’ Ainge says he would do Perkins trade again “as of today”

    Apr 20, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Two close, unimpressive wins over the banged up New York Knicks has not got made Celtics GM Danny Ainge go where plenty of Celtics fans already have. He still does not regret the Kendrick Perkins for Jeff Green trade, he told CSN New England. Not yet anyway. “I would do the trade over again in…

  11. Knicks’ Stoudemire leaves game with back spasms (Billups to have MRI, too)

    Apr 19, 2011, 8:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Considering how banged up the Knicks are suddenly, they are hanging right in this series (for the first six quarters anyway). Amar’e Stoudemire — the Knicks best, and really only, good player in the fourth quarter of Game 1 — left Game 2 with back spasms. He was expected to return but did not come…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Billups just one of many Knicks, Celtics questions

    Apr 19, 2011, 4:35 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Garnett takes to the court for Game 1 against the New York Knicks in Boston

    About the only prediction I feel safe about making for this game is that it will be entertaining. This entire series will be. After that, there are nothing but questions about Game 2 of Boston vs. New York, on the Knicks need on the road to even the series. How will the Knicks deal without…

  13. NBA playoffs see record ratings

    Apr 19, 2011, 12:36 PM EDT

    Image (1) television07-thumb-250x166-21995.png for post 6282

    Here is another reason that the momentum-killing lockout is going to be such a disaster. The opening weekend of the NBA playoffs got the highest first-weekend ratings ever on TNT, according to Sports Media Watch. That follows on the footsteps of regular season ratings that were the highest since the Jordan era. TNT averaged a…

  14. Shaq out for Game 2 of Celtcs vs. Knicks series

    Apr 18, 2011, 3:50 PM EDT

    Shaq injured

    This isn’t a shock — the Celtics said he was out “indefinitely” and that usually means more than one game — but we thought we’d pass along the news: Shaquille O’Neal did not practice with the Celtics Monday and it out for sure for Tuesday’s Game 2, according to a tweet from A. Sherrod Blakely…

  15. Big Baby, Stoudemire take gentle verbal shots at each other

    Apr 18, 2011, 12:47 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire had 28 points, 11 rebounds and a few key baskets for the Knicks down the stretch in Game 1. (He might have had more if the Knicks hadn’t inexplicably stopped feeding him the ball.) Stoudemire looked like the force he was earlier in the season. It looked like Boston couldn’t really stop him.…

  16. Video: Shane Battier, Ray Allen drop game-winning threes

    Apr 18, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics Allen reacts after hitting the game-winning shot against the New York Knicks in Boston

    You expect this kind of thing from Ray Allen. I’m not sure of the exact number, but I think Sunday was clutch game winning three number 142,684 in his career. But Shane Battier is a little quieter, a guy better known for his defense than clutch shooting. He’s a career 38 percent shooter from three…

  17. Shaq out “indefinitely” for Boston

    Apr 16, 2011, 2:03 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    One of the keys to Boston being in this in June — one of the reasons that Kendrick Perkins could be traded — was that Shaquille O’Neal could do the job in the middle. The Celtics will not have Shaq for game one against New York and maybe longer, Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge told…

  18. How they can win it all: The Boston Celtics

    Apr 14, 2011, 7:06 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s just get this myth out of the way: It’s not about Kendrick Perkins. Would Perkins help Boston right now? Damn straight. Would I have made that deal? No. Has Danny Ainge set himself up as a scapegoat? Yup. And he might want to think about spending the summer outside the city if Boston doesn’t…

  19. Knicks to start Turiaf at center in playoffs against Boston

    Apr 13, 2011, 9:53 PM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf, Mike D'Antoni

    Mike D’Antoni looks across the court at the Boston Celtics and knows that Shaquille O’Neal is going to lineup at center come Sunday night when the playoff series opens. He’s countering with Ronny Turiaf, who will start for the Knicks at center in the series, D’Antoni announced Wednesday, according to ESPNNewYork.com. “Because I think we…

  20. New York vs. Boston in another sport, Pierce says this could be fun

    Apr 13, 2011, 12:53 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce Knicks

    New York and Boston do not like each other. Their baseball rivalry can at times dominate the sport (and your television, even if you’re just trying to get other scores). The Bruins and Rangers are original six, old-school hockey rivals. I wouldn’t be shocked if the New York Philharmonic and Boston POPS have street fights…
