    Re: Hot off the NY Presses!

    Thank you for above for reminding us and the sports world that there was another team that faced a 0-3 and to a New York team too(almost as hated as teams from LA), albeit in another sport, that knew no team had come back from this deficit ??? To Kenyon Martin re: Celtics will be attending a funeral in New York so wear back, I say "Qui se ne frega" which in Italian more or less means, Stuff It !!!


    We're are in their heads boys. Believe me, maybe the funeral trash talk  was a bit overboard, & they are going to be apprehensive but we'll be loose. Can we borrow the nickname from our beloved Red Sox and call oursleves the 2013 Idiots !!!

    YES!

     

    This is the best part about tonights win. KMART and J.R. caught talking too much without backing it up. Melo+Smith's shooting percentage is horrendous!

    Following Martin's lead, Knicks players bring black clothing to Garden for Game 

    Following the lead of Kenyon Martin, several of the Knicks players had black jackets and black slacks hanging in their lockers before tonight’s potential Game 5 closeout game vs. the Celtics.

    The ploy was conceived after Celtics guard Jason Terry told Martin after Game 4’s Celtics victory that Boston was not going to let the Knicks dance at their funeral. Martin commented after Game 4 that he would have his teammates dress in black for a funeral Wednesday.

    “All black, all the time,’’ one Knick said before tonight’s game.

    When Doc Rivers was asked about the Knicks wearing black, the Celtics coach said, “So did I.’’

    Terry said yesterday he didn't care if the Knicks wore "white, pink, blue or green.''

    I don't think we will have the same results but at least we are playing in a game 6.  Great victory for the Celtics tonight.  All of the Boston teams won tonight.  A great day to be a Boston sports fan.

    I felt we could win if they sat Bradley. He really has been bad.

     



    Agree.  He hasn't been very good this playoff series.  Probably because of the absence of Rondo.

    Maybe they should wear pink next game

    actually I liked the Gwyneth Paltrow article at the bottom of the NY sports page.  Very interesting.

    Re: Hot off the NY Presses!

    Wearing black to the game to prepare for the Celtics' "funeral" didn't work out so well for the Knicks in Game 5. Knicks guard J.R. Smith, who was one of the biggest trash talkers this week, shot 3 for 14 in the game.

    "We were going to a funeral, but looks like we got buried," said Smith. "I'm done with the black thing."

    Re: Hot off the NY Presses!

    Knicks dress for Celts’ Game 5 funeral, but defeat gives rivals life

    The Knicks and J.R. Smith faded … to black.

    In nothing short of a choke, the Knicks allowed the Celtics to keep their season alive and take Game 5 last night in a 92-86 shocker at the Garden, staving off the anticipated Boston “funeral.”

    Once ready to sweep the Celtics, the Knicks cling to a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series which is headed back to Boston tomorrow, echoing memories of 2004 when the Red Sox rallied from a 3-0 deficit to shock the Yankees.

    No NBA team has recovered from a 3-0 series deficit.

    The Knicks got too full of themselves in the past few days, and it cost them. Smith bragged the series would be over if he had not been suspended Sunday. And following the lead of Kenyon Martin, all Knicks players had black jackets and black slacks hanging in their lockers before last night’s potential Game 5 closeout, anticipating the demise of the Celtics’ season. Embarrassingly, they were forced to wear their all-black garb afterward.

    
Charles Wenzelberg/New York Post UGH! After arriving dressed in black for what the Knicks thought would be the Celtics’ funeral, J.R. Smith, tangles with Boston’s Jason Terry for a rebound during the Knicks’ 92-86 Game 5 loss last night at the Garden.

    “We were going to a funeral, but it looks like we got buried,’’ said Smith, who said he won’t wear black to a game anytime soon. “We got humbled.’’

    There was shoving and words after the final buzzer, and it appeared on replays as if Boston reserve Jordan Crawford made a vulgar comment about Carmelo Anthony’s wife. Again. No blows were thrown, but Raymond Felton had to be restrained, going after Crawford, who claimed he wasn’t in the vicinity. Kevin Garnett allegedly made a comment about Anthony’s wife, La La Vasquez, in a January game, prompting a postgame skirmish.

    “Just bickering. Acting like a bunch of schoolgirls,” Smith said. “We got to just play basketball.’’

    KNICKS PLAYOFF SCHEDULE

    Smith, who got a standing ovation when he checked in with 6:38 left in the first quarter after serving his one-game suspension for elbowing Terry, was not the returning hero but the goat. He missed his first 10 shots in a horrendous outing, finishing 3-for-14 for 14 points, doing his best John Starks impression from the 1994 Finals.

    Carmelo Anthony hurt his left shoulder early in the fourth quarter and labored through a 22-point, 8-of-24 dud. Anthony was 2 of 10 — 0-for-5 from 3-point land — in the second half but said he believes his shoulder “is fine.’’

    Martin said after Game 4 he would wear black yesterday after Jason Terry told him Sunday he wouldn’t let the Knicks dance at their funeral. Martin and his teammates did, in a presumptuous move for a franchise that hasn’t won a playoff series since 2000. It also seemed in bad taste considering the recent deaths at the Boston Marathon.

    Martin scolded a Boston TV reporter who asked about the all-black outfits the Knicks wore in the dressing room afterward.

    “I’m just answering basketball questions,’’ Martin said. “If you want to talk about basketball, we’ll talk about basketball.’’

    Asked if the all-black getup incited the Celtics, Iman Shumpert said, “I couldn’t care less.’’

    When Jeff Green rolled to the hoop for a driving dunk with 8:00 left, the Celtics led 75-60 and the Garden became stone-cold silent. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce each scored 16 points and Jason Terry knocked in 17.

    “I just got too excited,’’ Smith said. “I couldn’t wait to play.’’

    The Knicks offense collapsed without the spark from Smith or Anthony. They shot 5-of-22 from 3-point range — their bread and butter.

    “Everyone’s upset, everyone was frustrated,’’ Smith said. “ If anything they swung the pressure on us [to go to] their building. Worst comes to worst we have two more games. We have to get one more and move on.’’

    “They did what they had to do,’’ Martin said. “They came here and stole one.’’

    Anthony, whose voice was shaky afterward, said the Knicks still are in good postion.

    “We’re good,” Anthony said. “We got two chances to close it out. We’ll see what we’re made of when we get out to Boston. We know they’d fight and they’ve thrown some punches at us.”

    Smith was 0-for-10 until making his first field goal with 2:47 remaining — on a 3-pointer from the left wing. He made his next 3-pointer to bring the Knicks to within 88-83 with 1:05 left, but it was too late. Garnett (16 points) iced it with a 20-footer, pump-faking Tyson Chandler, to push the lead back to 90-83 with 48.3 seconds to go.

    The Knicks looked primed to blow out Boston in taking an 11-0 lead before falling to pieces.

    “We are missing shots we normally make,’’ Felton said. “There are a lot of things we have to clean up. Yes, we wanted to sweep them. We wanted to end it tonight. Things are not always the way you want it to be.’’

    Anthony, who was 10-of-35 in

    Game 4, missed badly on many of his jumpers and seemed tentative all second half.

    “We’re just not making shots,’’ Anthony said. “Nothing Boston is doing.’’

    “No need to panic,’’ Jason Kidd said. “We’re still up 3-2. We just have to win a game.’’
