View Full Version : The Celtics needed their Big Three to play like they're 25 to beat Knicks

An interesting note to the Celtics win:

Paul Pierce: 32 points, 10-18 FG, 10-10 FT, 10 rebounds - 40 minutes
Ray Allen: 26 points, 10-19 FG - 41 minutes
Kevin Garnett: 20 points, 8-16 FG, 13 rebounds - 36 minutes


And if you're going to claim that the Knicks needed huge games from Amare and Felton, you'll have to realize they've been putting up those numbers almost nightly. Just like Rondo gets 11, 14 nightly, so no need to mention that.

Next time to Celtics face the Knicks late in the season, a 35, 34 and 33 year old aren't going to be able to play at that pace for 40 minutes after enduring a long season. To beat the Knicks, they needed all their players to play like they are in their prime.

Another note is that they clearly really wanted to win the game, because they foolishly put Rondo back in there after a horrible ankle turn and Doc Rivers played his old guys an incredible amount of minutes after he spent all last year trying to limit their minutes.

This topic is useless. The Knicks need Amare to score 40 Points to have a shot at beating the Celtics?

There was no defense being played last night. If the Knicks don't play D the Celtics can put those numbers up every game.

They all feed off eachother. Thats why the can keep up that type of play. None of those players take over games, they keep a steady pace through out the game. In other words, each player has a role, and they stick to it every night.

Knick fans seem like they just had sex for the first time. I like the enthusiasm but its a long season. The season does last past the all-star break.

Who cares....
Boston did wat they had to do to win the game. It's why they've been the best team in the eastern conference.
The nitpicking on this forum today is silly and it's only 1:25 p.m.!!!!
JESUS!!!!!

This is quite easily the WORST thread I've seen this week. But hey he's most likely an apparent troll so I guess we won't have to put up with stuff like this often.

You guys are the bad guys because of one reason...... LEBRON :hide:
