If the Knicks get Phil Jackson, expect a drastic response by Prokhorov. Might buy the Statue of Liberty or just declare war on Manhattan.
Looks like Oregon has played its way in the NCAA Tournament

Say this for Huggins. He owns that baseball coach hitting fungoes during BP look.
This Andrew Wiggins performance is sensational.
The Knicks have 23 wins. The Celtics have 21 wins. One of these teams is trying.
"He's increasing his workload everyday," Stevens said of Bradley. "Friday (vs. Phoenix Suns) is a possibility. We'll see."
Celtics coach Brad Stevens said there's possibility Avery Bradley could return as early as Friday vs. PHX.
Avery Bradley says he's close to returning to the lineup. He says he's "maybe a week" out from playing in games.
Pierce: "Me and Rondo share a special bond.... Our kids, they still hang out together. They hung out for his birthday (in L.A.), actually."
Paul Pierce on Rondo launching 3-pointers: "If he continues to consistently knock down that shot, watch out."
1. Dia de recuperacion...1 day rehab....1 dia de recuperacao
C's have 20 games left. Humphries: “I was just talking to Rondo a few minutes ago, [and he said,] ‘Let’s just have fun.'"
Made it from downtown to the Mobil station in Cambridge on empty. Thank you Basketball Gods (and Based God). http://t.co/ZULgCeps1K
Pierce on a return to the Celts: "Yeah, why not? Maybe play for them. Maybe work for them. Who knows what the future holds?"
Push, push, shove, shove, oh hey it's David West. We're good here.
From Dick Lipe: The Nets' 4-for-30 night from 3 was the worst by a team with at least 30 3-point attempts in at least 29 years.
Via the Celtics postgame quote sheet, here's a gem from Jared Sullinger: Re: Overcoming 28 turnovers: “Geesh.. "
Pierce has bonds with Rondo: "Our kids still hang out together. They hung out for his birthday actually." Follows w/long laugh.
Pierce talks about bond with Rondo. Says their kids still hang out. Then offers, "They hung out for his birthday, actually." Jokes!
Rajon Rondo declined to talk to the media after the game.
When asked if he'd consider playing for Celtics again Pierce said, "Yeah why not?"
Would Paul ever play for the Celtics again? "Yeah, why not. Play for them, work for them. Who knows."
Pierce on Rondo with a 3-point shot: "He's unstoppable."
Rondo declined to talk to the media after the game.
Paul Pierce says his kids were hanging out with Rondo's kids on Rondo's birthday in L.A,, then dies laughing.
Sounds like Babb's getting another 10-day contract.
Stevens on Babb: "I hope like heck he's still with us on Monday. He's a perfect fit for what we need. ... He's an outstanding defender."
Stevens: "We talked about the idea of pride, not wanting to play (poorly) at home. We were louder, more engaged and it was obvious..."
Just realized I tweeted Harvard's win % is close to .800 over the past "few" years. Should have been five years. Bit more specific.
Stevens jokes when Rondo came out it was an under-25 team with Sully the senior player. Kirilenko has played more games than them combined.
Stevens basically concedes this win was a response to Warriors debacle. No practice. Assistants met individually w/players to ensure focus.
Stevens on bench play when Rondo came out of game: "They not only sustained, they pushed the lead out. Their energy on loose balls helped."
Brad Stevens: "I would like to say it was terrific three-point defense, but if you look back at the replay, they missed a lot of open 3s."
Stevens: "As a unit we didn't look good Wednesday. I thought there was a collective resilience to play better. Step in the right direction."
PA announcer noted Rondo as "the captain" during starting lineups and after the game. Still sounds weird when Pierce is in the building.
Rondo's 20 pts, 9 asts & 7 rebs power the Celtics to a 91-84 win over the Nets. Bass had 15 & Olynyk chipped in 13 pts, 7 rebs off the bench
Final: Celtics 91, Nets 84. Rondo: 20 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds.
Now Sullinger has fouled out. This game has been crazy physical. Bodies everywhere.
With that Bayless 3, Celtics fans head for the exits. Tired of all this winning, I guess.
In case you were wondering about Paul Pierce's second game back at the Garden: 10pt (4-10 FG, 0-3 3PG, 2-2 FT), 2reb, 1ast in 31 min so far.
Joel Anthony just biding his time until every other Celtics big man fouls out. Almost there.
And now KO has fouled out. THIS GAME HAS GONE OFF THE RAILS
