Different Roster, Same Scenario Against the Celtics

Why why why do the Celtics always do this to the Knicks.  It’s almost like the big brother picking on his kid brother.

  • The Celtics played a very physical game which seems to give the Knicks fits (see Memphis and Chicago games).
  • Camby seems to have taken over Thomas’ role of starting the first 4 minutes of each half and never being seen again.
  • Avery Bradley makes it so difficult for anyone to get anything going on offense.  Prigioni was having trouble just making it past half court.
  • For some reason the 2nd quarter consisted of JR playing point guard (and not passing) and Priggy taking long 3′s.  This strategy did not work out very well.
  • Sullinger is only a rookie but he’s really progressed very quickly in his ability to flop.  He may be the first person this season to get a warning and a fine in the same game.  Also, when Sullinger subbed in Clyde waited until his 2nd possession to make fun of his weight instead of immediately bringing up his chunkiness.
  • I loved when Garnett and Melo were going back and forth and Melo hit a 3 and yelled “I’m coming back.”
  • I didn’t love when Melo then missed his next 796 shots.
  • I really didn’t love when Garnett then turned into Obi Wan Kenobi and mind controlled Melo, turning him into an f-bomb dropping rage monster that jacked up silly shots the rest of the game.  
  • Paul Pierce shoots somewhere between 99.7 and 100% in final minute daggers against the Knicks.
  • These teams really do hate each other.  It was reported that Melo went into the Celtics locker room after the game.
