Boston Shuts New York Up In Madison Square Garden

The Knicks talked the talk leading up to Game 5 In Madison Square Garden, with both JR Smith and Kenyon Martin assuring the masses that the series against Boston would be over. They thought it would be a bright idea to wear all black to the Garden, as if they were going to a funeral. Instead, they got a wake-up call, with KG holding the Celtics together with 16 points and 18 boards. Led by Jason Terry, they had a strong third quarter, unlike any other game in the series, and held on in the fourth. Carmelo Anthony and Smith missed a lot of shots, and the Knicks will have to head back to Boston after dropping this one, 92-86.
