2011 NBA Playoffs Game 3 Recap: Celtics at Knicks
Well I write this one as the Knicks are still playing, but this one has been over ever since the second half started. There’s not much to say here folks, this game was pitiful. The Knicks came out with no energy, they were out played, out hustled and out coached. Period. How do you come in to MSG, with an electric crowd, where the Knicks haven’t played a playoff game in seven years, and come out flat? How is the possible in any aspect? The only time the Knicks showed and heart and hustle was with six minutes left in the 4th quarter down by 20. The real question is: How on earth do you let Ray Allen, one of the greatest shooters in the history of the sport, to repeatedly be left open, possession after possession? It’s pitiful. Anytime the Knicks made a run, Ray Allen would come back and automatically hit a three. That’s either poor coaching, poor execution, or a combination of the two. This was basically a make or break game. Unless the Knicks want to come back and play harder than they have in any of the three games, this series is over. If not this will be one of the most monumental comebacks ever.
