Nevermind the meaningless Chicago game last night. The Knicks pulled their starters in the last few minutes to surrender, electing to rest Carmelo and Chanucey.
The game meant nothing but it was fun to see the Knick run early in the 4th quarter. They got as close as 7 points and then the Bulls closed it out.
Onto the playoffs...Knicks have clinched the 6 seed and will face the Celtics.
The game tonight won't mean anything either. Expect it to be a sub vs. sub game.
Paul Pierce had this to say on the Boston-NY playoff matchup...
“I think it’s going to be fun...You definitely have that rivalry in baseball. Maybe we can spark a rivalry there in basketball. You’ve got two cities who are close, next to each other, great sports towns. I think it’s going to be great for the game...It’s going to be a very interesting series. I know everybody’s going to tune in to watch it. I know this is going to be as exciting as probably that series versus the Lakers last year, or even the series we had [two years ago] versus the Bulls. I think it’s going to be very exciting for the fans to watch.”
More to come...
PS- I have decided not to change this blog's name till the offseason. Seems like a better idea to start fresh...:)
