My Take on Last Year's Run of Boston: Celtic Love

Series Not Yet Over for Gritty Celtics, Wins Game 5 in NY

The Boston Celtics survive for another game with a 92-86 Game 5 win over the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. The series ain’t over yet as the Celtics return to TD Garden for Game 6. Driven by passion and determination, the Cs held on for the win with help from Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jeff Green, Brandon Bass and Jason Terry. They almost equally contributed for the huge win. Brandon Bass has come out of his shell and has proven that he can be the x-factor for Boston. Jason Terry on the other hand, after being criticized for not performing well throughout the whole season has shown better basketball during this series. Kevin Garnett has been playing inspired basketball which some say may be due to his possible retirement at the end of the season. KG corralled 18 rebounds for the game along with his 16 points. Paul Pierce has been doing his thing, being the captain and scoring when needed. Bass and Terry each had 17 points to contribute for the Cs.

The dismal shooting of the New York Knicks gave the win away to the Celtics with Carmelo Anthony shooting 8 out of 24 while J.R Smith only made 3 out of 14 FGs. This is an interesting series to follow, with the “Honey Nut Cheerios” incident earlier in the season and the deep rivalry between the two teams; Boston fans definitely have no love for New York fans and vice-versa. Adding fuel to the fire, the New York Knicks players came to MSG wearing black suits, wherein they labeled the game as a funeral (for the Celtics). What they expected did not happen though and the Celtics live to see another day.

No team in the NBA has won a series while being down 0-3. Nothing is impossible though. Next game will be at Boston’s TD Garden. Will it be the end of the line for the Celtics? Will this be the last game for KG and The Truth in Boston? The Garden will definitely be jam-packed with a raucous crowd.  Win or go home, whether you are a Knicks fan, a Celtics fan or just a basketball fan, Game 6 is a must-see!
