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.
The Celtics aren't the Lakers. You have to go for the kill shot.

And stop motovating Jason Terry. This is the same dude who made Bron and Wade pay in the Finals for celebrating early.

The last 2 games have been a struggle for Carmelo Anthony from the field. Despite averaging 29 PPG, he's shooting just 18-59 FG (30.5%).

JR Smith jinxed that Knicks squad….. Relying on Melo for the team points hurt them too. Not many 3's taken by the Knicks throughout game

This series just got VERY INTERESTING. And very scary for the Knicks.

BLACK SUITS DOE

Black suits don't win games. Ball movement, defense and quality shots does. Game 6 should be a goodie.

Jordan Crawford talking that smack.

Carmelo will make Crawford pay for that

Trash talking after a DNP-CD should be an automatic suspension, Jordan Crawford.

KG: 16 points, 18 rebounds and 5 assists. What a game, man.

give it up for the Celtics. They embarrassed us. JR Smith and Melo should consider killing themselves.

So, yeah. Maybe next time? KEEP YOUR ****ING MOUTH SHUT AND FINISH THE JOB.
