Led by Carmelo Anthony’s triple double, the hot-shooting New York Knicks defeated the Boston Celtics, 118-108, Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. The game resulted in a season-split between the teams. The Knicks improved to 14-5 under interim coach Mike Woodson.
Normally a loss to the lowly Toronto Raptors (missing Jose Calderon and Andrea Bargnani, no less) would have me in fits. But this is no normal season, and this wasn’t a normal week. The Boston Celtics took two of three in their one and only back-to-back-to-back of the season, including a win without any members […]
Boston got a good challenge from lowly New Jersey, but even the presence of Rex Ryan couldn’t get the Nets past Boston (who took the win 94-82). Boston had trouble getting ahead of New Jersey early, and couldn’t get past a five-point lead in the first five minutes without New Jersey immediately making a move […]
The Boston Celtics continue to play like a team of champions. After defeating the Miami Heat on Tuesday, the team beat the Atlanta Hawks in overtime, 88-86, Wednesday night on the road.

Sometimes in basketball you can win shooting worse than your opponent. You can get beat in the paint, you can turn the ball over too much. You can even do all three and still win. Because sometimes, all you need is Kevin Garnett. Garnett scored 24 points on 11-for-15 shooting, including a jumper with the […]
Andrew Bynum is having some kind of year for the Los Angeles Lakers. The big seven footer made a hook shot with just over 15 seconds remaining in regulation to give L.A. a three-point lead, and the Boston Celtics’ inability to get a good look for the tie resulted in a 97-94 loss on Sunday […]
