Knicks- Celtics Preview
GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -- At his best, Rajon Rondo can seize a rebound, dart away from defenders, and set himself or an All-Star teammate up for a basket.

Amare Stoudemire can shake a backboard with a powerful dunk, or scare a spectator sitting courtside by forcefully blocking a shot out of bounds.

He can't right now, though.

Rondo is rolling and Stoudemire is sore, a big reason the Boston Celtics will bring a 3-0 lead over the New York Knicks into Game 4 of their first-round series on Sunday.

The Celtics will be looking for their first sweep since beating Indiana in three games in 1992, so long ago that it was Larry Bird's last playoff series victory.

After needing seven games just to get out of the first round in both 2008 and '09, they would welcome the chance to do something easily for a change -- especially with likely second-round opponent Miami poised to finish a sweep of its series with Philadelphia.

"I've never been part of a sweep, but I don't like to think about that stuff. We don't worry about that stuff," forward Paul Pierce said after practicing at Madison Square Garden. "It's about getting better one game at a time. We want to close the series, but they're not going to give it to us."

Rondo controlled the last two games, first with a surprising scoring outburst, then with a Celtics playoff-record 20 assists Friday in his sixth postseason triple-double. He is averaging 18.3 points, 12 assists and 8.0 rebounds, the type of all-around play that led Boston to the NBA finals last season.

"He seems always to be at his top level. I'm not surprised by what he does. I think the big thing as far as Rondo that I was shocked about when I arrived to Boston was his knowledge of the game, being so young," center Jermaine O'Neal said. "A lot of that comes through his experience of playing, but he has the ability to take over a game without scoring a lot of points. His ability to direct the offense, direct defense, get guys involved, it's one of the best in the league, if not the best in the league."

Meanwhile, Stoudemire had trouble just moving around, and with his aching back feeling worse Saturday, he said he won't play Sunday unless he feels better, adding he was below 50 percent in Friday's 113-96 loss.

"It's tough, I mean it really is. My game is very explosive. I love contact, I love to get to the basket, I love to draw fouls, I love to dunk ... that's my style of play. And so with a bad back, it's kind of tough to play that way," Stoudemire said. "There are adjustments to be made in order to be effective, but again, I don't want to get out there and further injure my injury, and so it all depends on how I feel tomorrow and see if I can go."

The Knicks will probably be without point guard Chauncey Billups, who missed the last two games after straining his left knee on a drive to the basket in the closing seconds of the opener.

New York nearly won that game and Stoudemire said he felt confident after scoring 28 points that the Knicks could win the series. Then he hurt his back dunking during warmups before Game 2, leaving Carmelo Anthony as the only healthy Knicks star, and that's not nearly enough against a Boston team with four All-Stars in its starting lineup.

Though he said "life ain't fair," Anthony repeated that the Knicks can't use injuries as an excuse.

"We've got to do what we've got to do. The Xs and Os go out the window, and we've just got to play basketball," Anthony said. "We've got to fight. It's a war, it's a battle and the most important thing is just how much pride we got. I don't want to get swept, we don't want to get swept, but we've got to go out there and just leave it all out there on the court and see what happens."

Rondo missed a triple-double by one point and one rebound in the opener, then scored a playoff career-high 30 points in Game 2 before finishing with 15 points and 11 rebounds Friday.

Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni, while saying Rondo is a good player, said the high assist total comes from Ray Allen and Pierce making so many shots. Allen did the majority of his damage against rookie Landry Fields, the second-round pick who was a reliable starter during the regular season but has been overmatched against the league's career leader in 3-point shots.

Fields is averaging just two points on 25 percent shooting, but D'Antoni said he would remain in the lineup Sunday after saying Friday he would look at whether a change was necessary.

Pierce is averaging 25.3 points on 53 percent shooting, Allen adding 24.7 and making 15 of 20 3-point attempts. The Celtics still won't have Shaquille O'Neal on Sunday, but have little to fear since no NBA team has blown a 3-0 lead.

The Knicks are just trying to win a playoff game for the first time in a decade, not thinking about winning four straight against the defending conference champions.

"It doesn't matter what the situation is," D'Antoni said. "We've got to play with more energy, more urgency, and get it done. And we can do this. We can beat these guys and we've got to believe that and just try to do it Sunday."

nycericanguy
04-24-2011, 02:09 PM
As much as I want to think NY can stay alive, realistically without Amare & CB they BOS is just a much better team.

It sucks as a Knick fan that we waited this long to get into the playoffs and we started off so good in game 1 only to see CB go down in the last few minutes when we really needed him to close the game out. And then the 2 horrendous calls. And then no Amare or CB for the rest of the series... really everything that could have gone wrong or against NY did in this series... :(

I'm proud of the way they played in games 1 & 2 despite all the circumstances... but I think we have to look ahead for next year. Amare should not play, he tried to give it a go in game 3 but he was not providing NY with anything and he was a liability.

Punk
04-24-2011, 02:22 PM
Jon Barry is a ****ing idiot. Nobody EVER said the Knicks were coming out of the East when we got Carmelo. We said we would have a legit chance at getting to the 2nd round depending on the matchup.

I really wish they would fire him. 3 out of our 5 starters are injured. Two of our main bench players are injured. Of course we wouldn't win a series like that.

Super.

who cares if he plays with 3 hall of famers. at least he's taking advantage of the situation and making it good. Rarely can one excel and have the best overall stats on a team with being the 4th "best" player on the team.

look at Mario Chalmers, basically given the starting duties with 3 maybe future hall of famers in their prime and did not do well at all.

you give him (Rondo) credit.

no way he's racked up more than Boozer.

Unreal hahaha all the bickering and talk between Heat fans and Bulls fans of who's dick is bigger and right now it is clear that the Celtics got both teams beat by a country mile.

This is impressive what kind of ball they are playing right now especially against a very tough Knicks team that obviously didn't roll over. I knew the scary part about the C's was they have a higher gear that we have all seen and once again they are giving it to us.

I had this series going at least 6 if not 7.

:confused: they looked like they rolled over last game late in the first

I did say Billups could have won you Game 2 if he was there, but what other large leads did you blow. The last two games have been blowouts


And Douglas has only 4 TO's total in the 4 games he's played, so the blame doesn't go on him, except for his defense.

Toney does not know how to run a offense. IDK why thats hard to understand. Look how unorganized we are when he's running point. IDC if he has only 4 turnovers. He can't run a offense for nothing. I don't expect him to average 10 assist or even 5 but damn everyone looks so lost when he runs it. Its been like that all season

I think it is more a testament of how suffocating and good the C's can be. They are a team where when they have you down they have a great set of shooters that can keep you there. Playing the C's can be demoralizing cause when they are hitting there shots its like you can never catch up to them.

Amare and Melo just dont play well together. They need to kill this experiment before its too late. They need to trade one of them. I would choose Melo because of how overrated he is and because CP3 and STAT would dominate together. Sometimes these players forget this is organized basketball and simply putting together three individually superb talents doesnt equal a good team.

Its like they said "theres no "I" in "TEAM" but theres a uhhh... theres an "M" for Melo and and an "A" for Amare so its all good... lets get together"

The Knicks can still salvage this. They can trade Melo for something good and build around STAT and CP3 when they get him... if they get him...

It's amazing how Heat fans can be so arrogant when your team just got embarrassed on TV like that to a bunch of young players.
