Rondo is expected to sit out against Orlando and both O'Neals will likely play, Rivers said. Even with the Magic just coming together, it's a matchup that will surely test Boston's bravado.

Awww too bad.

They hadn't scored in 8 minutes, the Knicks missed on the next trip down, and then Boozer subsequently made a layup. It changed nothing, dude.

It would have been a three point play...and I think they were down 8 at that time so it could have been a 5 point game. For you to say that makes no sense.

No, I think it was already double digits. And like I said, the Knicks came down and quickly missed, while the Bulls quickly got a layup from Booze. It wasn't some 6 point swing, it was a 1 point max swing.

Moving on - Taking Boston here, even without Rondo.

You've played us minus Boozer the first time and minus Noah the second time. They're kind of big on our team. The fact that we can play poorly both times and you guys still have to shoot lights out from 3 to win says something about us as well.

Knicks aren't fully healthy either... their starting SG should be Kalenna Azibukie and he as supposed to be back in December. I know he doesn't have anywhere near the effect Noah does, but the Knicks lack of depth is what kills them most nights.

Regardless, good game glad to see Knicks and Bulls getting back to where they belong.

We only play 8 guys with a garbage bench but we dont complain about it. the fact that you guys allowed us to shoot over 50% from three in both games just prove that yall didnt played defense in either game. just accept the lost and move on. see you guys next time when noah is healthy because thats gonna be a good game

22 shots for rose? Unecessary. Cut that down to 12-14 shots and get your teammates involved. Shot about 10 jumpers too many D-Rose. Still, amazing layup. Holy ****.

Also the Knicks are quite overrated. I will never get why everyone is in love with Danilo Gallinari. No defese, spurts of good shooting, but he gives up the ball way too much, he can't drive into the hole to save his life, and he is incredibly over-energetic to the point where it's like i'm watching a high school senior who is trying too hard. It doesn't look like he belongs on the court.

I'm also quite impressed with Felton. He can't D D-Rose, but who can?

This is by far the stupidest post I have ever seen in my life.

Hey genius, Gallo has the lowest turnover rate in the whole league. This comment is a fail on epic proportions.

He's ranked in the top 20 in getting to the free throw line (yeah can't drive) and he plays some of the best man defense on the team. If you watched the Heat game and the OKC game, he actually stopped Lebron and Durant on multiple occasions.

People need to use some sort of factual basis for their posts. Not just blind, hating, dumb opinion.

You know what I don't understand about that 10 second rule... obviously Howard takes his time on every freethrow he takes so why was it called then, and not anytime earlier in the season? I've seen him take just as long... inconsistent... I mean its the right call, but call it consistently

I had to come post this, even though it was a few minutes ago but have you ever seen anyone break that FT rule?

Dwight was close to being tossed though, you could see it in Delaney's eyes.

ive always noticed he takes forever, and a couple weeks ago read an article talking about how often he does it. something along the lines of 60 or so FT's that this guy had definitively seen taken after 10 seconds. so i had my eye on it and sure enough so did the refs. never seen it called before, though.

It's the fact that it's the first time these teams (as they're currently constructed) have ever played, and this stage (though overrated in the sense that yeah - it's only one game against a non-conference opponent) will indeed elevate it to playoff atmosphere. The Lakers have been struggling of late (especially with the blowout loss versus Milwaukee) and need to start turning things around to catch up to the resurgence of the Mavs and Spurs, and this game would provide the perfect catalyst for that.

On the other end, you have a Heat team who has mountains to prove, and have yet to beat a legitimate contending team. This would mark the first stage for that, and give them a necessary boost in their teams confidence to beat a contending team with strong bigs.

You can make the case that the Spurs matchup next week is bigger (though, I'd argue it's not given the huge stage for this game), due to the HCA implications and the fact that the Spurs look like legitimate contenders again, but the Hornets comment is just Phil being Phil.
