Crowder's really good at recognizing when his opponents take a bad angle on a closeout, then attacks it.
Just b/c Brad Stevens doesn't scoreboard watch doesn't mean you can't: Nets about to grab big win over Cle, Cha in OT vs Wiz, Mia down big.
Weird game in that the Knicks have hung around, but it's never really felt like they were in it. 83-75 Bos. 5:12 left.
The Celtics are on top of the Knicks 70-63 after three quarters. Isaiah Thomas is up to 15 points and 6 assists. Crowder: 14 points, 8 rebs.
And it's nice to have you back, Isaiah Thomas.
Wow, that defensive possession by Marcus Smart was unreal.
Thomas-Crowder pick-and-rolls all day during this stretch.
Isaiah Thomas still clearly not himself. Very tentative on offense. 1-for-5 from the floor.
So, "let's go Celtics" chants have now erupted in Brooklyn and New York this week.
Five minutes in, Cs take out Zeller, go small. Switching lineup with Thomas back.
Some "Let's go, Boston, let's go" chants in upper deck of MSG.
Tweeting a picture of the Four Tops performing on Clyde's 70th at MSG? Can't help myself. http://t.co/zk5U5RIQ73
Four Tops performing at half. Singing to Knicks? "When you feel lost and about to give up, 'cause your best just ain't good enough..."
It's Celtics 47, Knicks 39 at halftime. Five Celtics have at least six points, led by eight apiece from Brandon Bass and Jae Crowder.
Celtics 47, Knicks 39. Halftime.
Crowder is everywhere.
Grizzlies-Warriors is really good, for those of you who have League Pass.
Adam Silver on Brad Stevens to CSNNE: "Maybe one of the best young coaches to ever come into this league."
Hasn't always been beautiful, but this has been a strong second quarter for Cs. Knicks just 4 for 16 from the field.
Crowder doing a nice job of pushing the pace after defensive rebounds. Has created some nice opportunities like that.
And as a sign Tommy really feels better, he wants the Celtics to push the pace.
Tommy Heinsohn joins CSNNE broadcast to say that he feels better after "a touch of pneumonia." Could return to call Sunday's game.
Knicks give Frazier a sailing trip for his birthday. Clyde probably wonders if he can leave now.
The Celtics trail the Knicks 22-21 after the first quarter. Isaiah Thomas leads the C's with 6 points, including a 4-point play, and 2 asts.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm so sick of all these godforsaken video reviews.
Isaiah Thomas senses contact, heaves up a 3-pointer and banks it in off the glass as he's fouled. 20-20.
That's the one kind of secret of this alleged playoff push: the starters have been bad on most nights.
The Celtics, whose starting lineup has rarely been good, certainly look disjointed again tonight.
Four Tops singing Happy Birthday to Clyde Frazier, who turns 70 Sunday. If you saw him play, call your kids and explain why he's worth it.
This Walt Frazier birthday celebration is all types of weird and it's cracking me up.
It's so quiet at Madison Square Garden for 1st Q of Celts-Knicks, librarians are getting a little weirded out.
Not sure the Knicks defensive personnel could be any more abominable.
March Madness! (K fine whatever.) Celtics/Knicks underway in New York... http://t.co/YE90A2X13p
Four Tops just did anthem for Celts-NY here at MSG. How much better would this night be if they skipped the game and had a Tops' concert?
The Four Tops just performed the anthem at MSG. Now two of them are starting in the Knicks front court.
Brad Stevens said that if James Young "plays great" in Maine, he could still work his way back into rotation for the stretch run.
Isaiah Thomas: "I felt good yesterday in practice. That’s the best I've felt. I was able to move a lot better."
Brad Stevens on Knicks being an easy out: "The only thing that matters to me is they beat the Spurs here last week." (It's true.)
Here at MSG and have already heard the Knicks/Kentucky debate rekindled a couple times. Here's why, I suppose... http://t.co/cMmdAmsC9N
Stevens on Coach Fisher: "I think he's handled it great, but I'm sure there are challenges I don't know about being a first-time coach."
Stevens on Young: "The plan is to just continue to get him opportunities, whether that's in the D-League or [here]."
Stevens on Turner: "I think he's a very talented, good guy. That's one of the most important things, he's a good person and good teammate."
What does Derek Fisher learn from watching Brad Stevens? "Being quiet, as much as possible."
Fisher says as former Laker it's hard to wish Celts luck in p-o push, so wishes it to Stevens and he can pass to team.
Derek Fisher as former Laker says it's tough to wish Celtics luck. "But I like Brad so I wish him luck & he can spread it to anybody else."
We're going to have a 30-for-30 one day on what could have been for the Thunder, and it's going to be sad.
BREAKING: Doc Rivers just acquired Blake Griffin's impersonation of Austin Rivers for a second-round pick.
