New York Boston

  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

    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. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…
