Woodson looks postively shellshocked as he walks off court at halftime - down 58-31. Let's see who starts the third quarter.
It's these kind of Sundays that made NFL Films so great. Gotta love snow football.
The Celtics are clinging to a 58-31 lead at halftime.
The Knicks need some orange slices at halftime.
58-29 Celtics. Carmelo on his way to remaining winless over the last 10 years in orange uniforms.
Forget film. Let Amar'e, Metta and Pablo take naps at halftime and Woodson should start them in the 3rd quarter.
Carmelo Anthony has been really bad in this game. Forcing a lot of shots that aren't even close
One positive from first half is Amare looking lively. And a lot of PnR plays for him lately. More than his post ups.
Bargnani is having a rough day on both ends.
Don't wear your Amar'e jersey's in Cleveland Tuesday. Woodson riding him hard today.
Woody with the quick hook
Knicks coming back with Amar'e. He gave them good minutes earlier in the second quarter.
Sullinger is a tough match up if you keep him on the perimeter. Bargnani needs to pick up the scoring slack. He's been dreadful
Does Bargnani know Rhianna? 1-for-7 so far.
Weak performance by the MSG crowd. 37 people clapped for the great Dick Barnett when he was announced. The guy's jersey is in the rafters.
According to Elias, first time in NBA history team posted 2 straight 30-point victories, then looked dead in the ensuing game.
Bench came in with great energy, but starters back now (with Pablo) and the momentum nosedived again. Melo looks exhausted vs Bass.
Strong minutes from Metta...
I guess the best thing for the Knicks right now would be if Pablo Prigioni signed with CAA.
Great look from Pablo to Amar'e for a dunk that cut it to 17.
Kind of becoming 1 of my favorite things is the World Peace coast-to-coast finish.
Prediction: The Knicks will somehow make this a game.
Knicks are only down 3-0 in the second quarter.
This team inexplicably looks like its tank is on empty. Zero energy.
Adam Sandler is at the game
Knicks play Celtics nearly even for final 3:10, outscored by only 1. The 22 they were outscored by before then leave them down 34-11.
Doesn't look so bad here, but looks much worse on the court. http://t.co/RzdepGWWvH
It is 34-11 after one.
I'm assuming that Brad Stevens thought with 2.8 seconds left the Celtics could score twice on the Knicks.
Brad Stevens calls a TO with 2.8 seconds left in 1Q. Up 23, but sees a chance to squeeze out another basket here.
The Knicks are on pace to lose by 92. No, for real.
Prediction: Carmelo takes more than 10 shots in this game.
That's a dreadful call. Ken Marrow's is looking right at the play. Has to overrule that. Ref with a more obstructed view called the T.
The stats software isn't working here, so there's no boxscore. But you don't need stats to see how bad this is.
Stoudemire is -1.
In theory having the Knicks stay in an NYC hotel the night before a noon game is smart... except Knicks in NYC on Sat. night is not good.
This line up isn't much better.
Kind of surprised Woodson didnt do a mass sub with how poorly that first group played. That was legitimately embarrassing.
This is easily the worst quarter the Knicks have had since I've started covering the team. Ugly, ugly basketball. 29-7 Celtics so far.
Mad-at-the-world Shumpert can't tie his shoe and chew gum at same time today. Dribbles it off his foot and out of bounds.
Shumpert throws up 26 footer from 23 feet, Celtics get easy bucket the other way. 27-5.
The way Iman Shumpert is shooting and playing everyone should be pissed at him.
Jeez, Kris Humpries is more awake than Knicks and he was married to Kim Khardashian.
On the bright side, Stoudemire's +/- in this game is 0.
The statistics monitor is out in the press box. Wonder if it's no accident. 25-3 now.
Going to be awesome to hear Raymond Felton blame this on the orange uniforms.
The scoreboard says the Knicks are shooting 8 percent. I think that's kind of high.
Fans angry at this 23-3 deficit, but come, take it easy on the Knicks. I mean, they're playing the Atlantic Division leaders!
The Knicks are down 23-3 with 3:54 left in the first half and hearing the boos.
Woodson has used more timeouts (2) than the Knicks have field goals (1).
I guess numbers can lie... LOL.
I tell my son all the time don't eat a heavy breakfast when you have an early game. Clearly the pancakes were awesome at Knicks breakfast.
Took six minutes to see ball movement. And that resulted in the first made field goal.
So the Knicks are playing like they are still waking up - down 18-1. Of course bring J.R. in now.
Knicks are down 18-1. Not playing defense and not playing offense.
The greatest trick the Knicks ever pulled was convincing us that passing didn't exist.
The Knicks are -17 in this game.
Knicks down 15-1 to Boston. Assuming MSG company Christmas party was last night.
It appears that Carmelo Anthony did not like hearing about how well the team was playing when he was moving the ball.
Can't think of anything sadder in the NBA than falling behind 12-0, then getting your 1st point on a defensive 3-second tech free throw.
So much dribbling.
Knicks are down 10-0. That is all
Knicks down 10-0, fans already getting restless. Nobody even cheered for Elmo when he came onto the court during this timeout.
And yet again, spot the opponent a 10 point lead at home. Amazing.
I would not describe this as a particularly strong start for the Knicks. 10-0, Celtics.
Boston up 7-O. Melo shockingly going back to iso ball after all the literature.
Why does it look like the Knicks have completely forgotten what they discussed in terms of moving the ball?
That was an awful possession by the Knicks. So much one-on-one.
Shooters need to do 2 things. 1)Be willing and able to make 2)Be ready to shoot
you don't need to see 5 passes to get "ball movement"... all you need is 1 to the person whose defender you made react.
Makes lead to runs...
again, space leads to forcing a help defender to react opening a passing lane. reaction leads to open shots. Open shots leads to makes...
I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure Mike Westhoff, the special teams Yoda, just proposed to Jets owner Woody Johnson on ESPN NY radio.
Melo's number when Hardaway, Jr. is on and off the court: http://t.co/ODDDMWqP80
I understand why Iman Shumpert would be mad about trade rumors. If you're young, well known & wealthy, wouldn't you want to be in NYC too?
Hardaway's numbers with and without Anthony: http://t.co/QE0mUBp1zP
Weird, but Hardaway's been a killer when Melo is OFF the floor. And Anthony's been way better without Hardaway, too.
