Hostile environment is a pretty accurate description of what it will be like in Boston tonight. Celtics fans have a reputation of not holding back, especially when there is such robust material to work with, re: honey nut cheerios.
Can we expect the game to go anyway else then coming down to the wire so that either Pierce or Melo can decide it on one basket? Probably not. It’s like the games between New York/Boston always follow the same script.
I’m not complaining… it’s exciting as hell. But, it’s also extremely gut-wrenching. I can’t even remember the last time the Knicks beat them.
Key Matchup: Garnett vs. Melo (if Melo starts at the four) - throw them back into the fire. Melo says there is “no bad blood” between them… my ass. Garnett slightly bumps or says something to Melo and Melo will be right back to trying to rip KG’s head off. Avery Bradley vs. Shump should be a fun one to watch also.
Over/Under Game: Put your guesses (over or under) in the reply or comment section. Get 5 out of 5 right, I’ll put your name/blog in the post game write-up. Pushes (ties) count as wrong.
- Melo Points: 30
- Pierce Points: 25
- Shumpert Minutes: 22
- Knicks and Celtics Combined Technicals: 2
- Rondo Assists: 8
I have no clue what to expect tonight.
