Knicks vs Celtics! Spurs, bah.

2 rbj   ~  Mar 4, 2012 12:56 pm

I'm dodging snow flurries today, so I'll take any baseball I can get.

3 rbj   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:01 pm

Ah, Michael Kay.

4 Alex Belth   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:03 pm

Right, my bad. Celts first, then Texas.

Man, Michael Kay. I'm not ready!

5 Alex Belth   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:20 pm

Hunter Pence, spring training GOD.

6 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:22 pm

I'm watching hoops. Good game!

7 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:26 pm

Knicks take the lead with 2 minutes to go in the first Q.

8 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:30 pm

29-27 lead at the quarter.

9 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:36 pm

Too many whistles early in the second quarter.

10 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:51 pm

Chandler with a couple of put-backs and the Knicks are in control.

J-Lin had a nice alley-oop to, uh, I forget -- Davis? But since then he's thrown the ball away a few times trying to drop a long pass over the D for an easy bucket.

11 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:55 pm

Finally Lin to Melo for an easy pair, then the same play from the other side. Knicks by 11... then each team throws it away on a fast break.
Lin looks like maybe he's feeling the pressure, honestly. Not terrible, but he doesn't look like himself. About 3 minutes left in the half.

4 errors for the Phillies in not two games. Ah, early spring training.

13 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 1:58 pm

Paul Pierce can't cover Carmelo.

14 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 2:00 pm

Bullshit call of an offensive foul puts Lin on the bench. Damn.

15 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 2:05 pm

Last minute of the half, both teams look verrrrrry sloppy. They don't look like playoff teams. Boston closes some of the gap, and it's 56-51 at the half.

16 rbj   ~  Mar 4, 2012 2:10 pm

No Kay the Howard thing added injury to insult.

17 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 2:33 pm

Knicks come out confused in the second half. Ugh.

18 rbj   ~  Mar 4, 2012 3:03 pm

Dang 6 errors for the Phillies in not even two games.

19 rbj   ~  Mar 4, 2012 3:12 pm

Error #7. Phillies LFer did not clearly have it.

20 Alex Belth   ~  Mar 4, 2012 3:39 pm

Melo playing great down the stretch but missed a shot--tough shot--to win it. Going to OT....

21 RIYank   ~  Mar 4, 2012 3:46 pm

Can't believe they let Pierce take a 3 at the end of reg. I understand Carmelo not wanting to foul him, but...

22 Alex Belth   ~  Mar 4, 2012 4:06 pm

Lin got badly outplayed by Rondo.

23 rbj   ~  Mar 4, 2012 4:14 pm

Only one inning, but Strasburg looks good.

24 The Hawk   ~  Mar 4, 2012 4:15 pm

Hopefully the Knicks still have some improving to do (but do it quick!) ... They were THIS close. They can be a better team than the Celts, I think.

Lin was trying way too hard in the first half.

25 Alex Belth   ~  Mar 4, 2012 8:21 pm

Man, Rondo's triple double was something special:18 points, 17 rebounds (!!!), and 20 assists. DAAAAAMMMN.

[25] Why on earth were the C's trying to trade him? Was that just hot air rumors?
