Knicks vs. Celtics Playoffs Game 2 Tonight!
The #6 NY Knicks take on the #3 Boston Celtics for Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs: 7PM EST TNT Tonight! ‘Melo is on the hunt, and Mr. Big Shot is questionable for tonight’s game. Chauncey should definitely be ready for the Game 3 on Friday in NYC at MSG. Tonight, the Knicks need to go to Amar’e more often at the finish. He is clutch and helped the Knicks get to the even record before ‘Melo arrived. ‘Melo more than likely will make up for his poor performance last game. Toney Douglas will be the replacement for Chauncey at the point. Toney has moments where he is a lights-out shooter and a good passer. Read the excerpt, courtesy foxsports:
Billups is ”very questionable,” Coach Mike D’Antoni said Monday.
”I’m ready,” Douglas said Monday. ”The hardest part is getting my body ready for that situation.”
Billups was hurt late in Boston’s 87-85 victory Sunday night when his leg ”buckled on me.” He limped off the court with 51 seconds left and didn’t return.
”It’s really sore” he said after watching practice in street clothes.”At this point in the season, this is the worst thing that could possibly happen, getting hurt in the first game of a tough series. I know my team needs me and it’s just frustrating.”
