Knicks Celtics

  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. 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…

  3. Biillups out, Stoudemire may join him on Knicks bench Sunday

    Apr 24, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Injuries are not what led to the now inevitable end to the Knicks season at the hands of the Celtics in the first round. But it did speed the process along. Point guard Chauncey Billups is almost certainly out for Game 4 and Amar’e Stoudemire may join him on the bench. Stoudemire’s back tightened up…

  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. 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…

  6. MRIs on Stoudemire, Billups negative; both questionable for Friday

    Apr 20, 2011, 6:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    The good news — it’s nothing serious. The MRIs for both Amar’e Stoudemire and Chauncey Billups confirmed the original diagnosis in both cases, reports the New York Daily News. That’s a break for New York. Well, except that both are on the bubble for Game 3, and the Knicks losing Friday night to the Celtics…

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

    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…

  8. 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…

  9. Knicks Stoudemire says he will be ready to go in Game 3

    Apr 20, 2011, 12:29 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Kids, let this be a lesson to you — showoff dunks in warm-ups only leads to trouble. Amar’e Stoudemire hurt his back doing dunks in warm-ups. He tried to go despite the back spasms, but put up four points on 9 shots in 16 minutes and left the game never to return. Stoudemire tells the…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. NBA playoffs see record ratings

    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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.…

  15. Knicks’ Chauncey Billups “very questionable” for Game 2

    Apr 18, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    UPDATE 12:20 pm: Billups sat out practice and Mike D’Antoni called him “very questionable” for Game 2 Tuesday, night, according to a tweet from Alan Hahn of Newsday. That could be real trouble for the Knicks. In that game and in the series. 8:11 am: The Knicks could have used Chauncey Billups at the end…

  16. 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…

  17. Trail Blazers, Knicks top list of upset specials

    Apr 15, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony stands near Celtics' Pierce in third quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    There are things we know about this year’s NBA playoffs. The beer in Madison Square Garden will be too expensive. Lakers fans will blame any loss of their team on the referees. Derrick Rose will dominate Indiana and some will claim that as further proof of his deserving the MVP. And some higher seed is…

  18. Shaq remains a question mark for playoff opener Sunday

    Apr 14, 2011, 4:14 PM EDT

    shaquille o'neal Celtics

    Shaquille O’Neal is going to suit up again for the Boston Celtics. Maybe Sunday. Maybe not. But he will again one day. We promise. As for now, he remains a question mark for Sunday’s playoff opener against the New York Knicks, according to A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England. When asked when he would…

  19. Knicks’ slide continues as Celtics come from 15 down to win

    Mar 22, 2011, 12:18 AM EDT

    pierce-celtics-knicks

    Because there might be a little rivalry between the two cities when it comes to sports, we’re rooting for — and could see — a New York/Boston first-round matchup. Boston is deadlocked with Chicago for first, and New York is comfortably in the seventh spot, with no reason to believe that the team will be…
