Looks like people will have to relish these 2 games in New York and hold their breath for next year. The first playoff game in Madison Square Garden in 7 years was all Celtics from the gate. Amar’e was clearly still dealing with stiffness in his back. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce did what they always do, GET BUCKETS!! Rajon Rondo was unconscious with a triple-double, 15 points, 20 assists and 11 rebounds.
In attendance for the blood bath; Carmelo’s wife Lala, superfan Spike Lee, John McEnroe and more:
I expected so much more from the Knicks. I thought for certain this was going 7 games with the Celtics ultimately taking it. Game 4 is Sunday back at the Garden, get your brooms ready!
