Player to Watch


After a DNP in the first game, Phil Pressey has been making his case for back up point guard quite effectively.  He needs to continue his strong play in order to beat out Jordan Crawford for the back up point guard spot.



Knicks Roster

Cole Aldridge
Carmelo Anthony
Andrea Bargnani
Tyson Chandler
Ike Diogu
Chris Douglas-Roberts
Raymond Felton
Tim Hardaway Jr
CJ Leslie
Kenyon Martin
Toure Murry
Josh Powell
Pablo Prigioni

Jeremy Tyler
Beno Udrih
Metta World Peace

Injuries
JR Smith (Knee) out
Amare Stoudemire (knees)  out
Jeremy Tyler (finger) out

Player to Watch

Iman Shumpert lead the Knicks with 18 points in their first game against the Celtics.  They would do well to keep a man on him.   

Keys to the Game
Run! Run! Run! - Coach Stevens wants the team to run but they've been walking more than running.  They were out scored in fast break points by the Sixers 30-12.

Rebound - The Celtics were out rebounded 54-43 by the Sixers and they need to make more effort to crash the boards.

Hit Some Shots- The Celtics shot just 36% against the Sixers.  Players are being too unselfish at times and they are missing shots they should make.  Someone needs to hit some shots.  They are better shooters than that percentage indicates. 

Defense! - After allowing 52% shooting in their first two games, the Celtics allowed the Sixers to shoot almost 50%.  They must do a better job on the defensive end. 

Don't Panic - It's still the preseason.  Players are still learning the system.  The coach is still learning the players.  It's going to take some time.

Same again from last game. Crazy Bass-Lee pick and pop exhibition.
Kobe is Swahili or tortoise. Look it up!

Bold Predictions

Kelly Olynyk leads the Celtics in assists.

Phill Pressey records at least one block.

Courtney Lee finally rediscovers his three point range, and goes 4-5 from deep.

Tim Hardaway Jr. hits at least one more big shot in the 4th quarter, leading to some murmurs of him being the Bizarro Paul Pierce, set to torment the Celtics for years to come.
Michael Jordan: It's a man's game, and you can't play.
 Bill Murray: It's 'cause I'm white, isn't it?
Michael Jordan: No. Larry's white, so what?
Bill Murray: Larry's not white. Larry's clear.

not sure the point of this thread.

I hope you're wrong about this.
Lets just trade for him right now  ;D

Not so Bold Predictions

We lose by 7

Lee will be 2 of 10 from the field with 1 three pointer.


Green will be hot in the 1st half putting up 17 points, but will be cold in the 2nd half.

Kelly Olynyk will have 1 monster dunk.

Faverani will rattle Tim Hardaway Jr with a hard screen.

Sully will get a double double.

Pressey will get 8 assists.

Bass will air ball at least 2 mid range jumpers.

Jordan Crawford will have a sick buzzer beater.

Great execution in the early game. Good to see the Celtics playing disciplined and calm basketball.

New York's starting lineup

G: Prigioni
G: Shumpert
F: T.Hardaway
F: J.Powell
C: Bargnani

There is no need for 8 preseason games when teams are throwing out garbage like that.

terrible basketball.
Jumpshot after jumpshot from a team of poor jumpshooters,

Have we had a single shot in the paint yet after 5 minutes?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?b=1&v=UWlJiz1X8q0

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

Well, the way i'm seeing this game is the knicks are dropping down on everything in the paint, even doubling Sully so they kick out and take open shots. Isn't that just taking what the defense gives you ?
