The Grinch Steals Christmas, Celtics Fall Short

The Celtics rallied all the way back in the 2nd half but couldn't hold off the Knicks as Kevin Garnett's buzzer shot was off.

  • C's offense got off to a slow start (lockout rust?) but hit their stride in the 3rd.
  • I guess Rondo shook off those trade rumors. 31 points, 13 assists, and a few jumpers that looked good. Then again, he always does well against the Knicks.
  • Celtics really missed Paul Pierce at the end - not to mention early on when they needed someone who could generate their own offense.
  • How about Brandon Bass? 20 points and 11 rebounds in his debut and he worked very well with Rajon.
  • Another solid defensive performance from Jermaine O'Neal. Stay healthy big man, we'll need you.
  • A big 37 points from Melo and 21 for Amare was what carried the day for the Knicks.
Celtics start off 0-1 but it was a hard fought game that could have gone either way.
