Do you still believe that we can beat the Celtics ?
I must admit I don't.
Actually I don't believe we can win one game,if we win it I will be happy.
Every ****ing time we have a big lead against them and they still come out and win it.
Another meltdown occurred,I don't know how much we need to be leading to be safe.
50 or more ?
Billups played like a total jackass.
I thought we will see experience and leadership from him.
Well,only thing we saw is him chucking threes and shooting like 3-100 from the field.
Melo was ice cold in the second half and I actually don't blame him for shooting the three.
I blame him for the way he did it.
When he got the ball it was evident that he is going to shoot it.
He should have acted that he was going to the rim or something like that and pull for a 3.
Amare played great,we should be thankful for him because without him this would be a blowout loss.
Refs are another story.
They called phantom foul on Melo but Celtics are obviously allowed to set moving screens.
We lost.So what ?
Knicks were playing very good,with passion and desire to win.
Exactly, they even played good defense, a lot of of shot clock violations and desperations shots with 1,2,3 seconds to go by the Celtics. And yeah i know the celtics plan was to run down the clock, but still good defense by the Knicks.
Said that, i got a feeling we are going to be blownout in the second game
I didn't believe in the first place. Ever since play-off seeds were still being determined I said I wanted the Heat over the Celtics. Not because of the hype but because the Celtics have beat teams like us before in the first round.
If anything this loss at least showed me we are going to play defense and we are going to be competitive through out this series. I see 3 possible outcomes for this series.
Celtics win in 6
Celtics win in 7
Knicks win in 7
If Celtics win in any less then 6 games that means things went horribly different from the way they went yesterday.
Knicks winning in 7 would be a miracle. If we beat the Celtics it would probably be our hardest opponent in the play-offs beaten except for maybe the Bulls. If we beat the Celtics then I feel we could beat anybody.
