Celtics Look To Tie Series In Game Six Against Knicks
The Boston Celtics are looking to make history ralling back from a 3-0 deficit. Tonight they will tie the series against the Knicks or go home. The Knicks dispite thier rough match-up in game five are small favorites to wrap this series up on the road tonight in game six.
Boston caught fire in game five hitting half of their 22 three-point attempts, 45.7% from the floor, and hitting all 17 of their free-throws. They had five double digit scorers which helped them overcome turning the ball over 17 times on the road to the Knicks.
Leading the Celtics in scoring was Jeff Green with 18 points, on 5 – 8 shooting, and 2 for 2 from down town to go with 4 rebounds, and 4 assists. Brandon Bass scored 17 points on some very efficient shooting going 6-7 from the floor, and 5-5 from the line. Kevin Garnett had a whopping 18 total rebounds to go with 16 points. Jason Terry contributed 17 points, 3 assists, and a steal from the bench.
The New York Knicks had a rough night in game five hitting just 39.5% of their shots from the floor, and just 5 of their 22 total three-point shots. NY usually puts up a high volume of three’s, this night they just weren’t falling for them. Also Carmelo Anthony had a rough night, and he is the largest importance to the Knicks success.
Anthony finished game five with 22 points going 8-24 from the floor, and missing all five of his three point shots. J.R. Smith who is usually a clutch shooter for NY had a tough outing as well going just 3-14 from the field, but managed to end with 14 points. Raymond Felton picked up the slack for his struggling team shooting over .500 from the floor, grabbing 6 rebounds, and serving four dishes to go with 21 points.
With this game headed to Boston and all the momentum in the Celtics direction I am looking for them to tie the series tonight against the New York Knicks. Back the Celtics moneyline, they should tie the series and have a chance at making history in game seven.
