07:47 PM ET 05.03 | Tonight the New York Knicks will attempt to pull out a Game 6 victory over the Boston Celtics and avoid having to go to a seventh game, which is a self-inflicted situation. New York led 3-0 at one point in the series but couldn't close out Boston. As a result, the Knicks have dropped three straight games and had everything from their pride to their mothers disrespected by the Celtics. So naturally to add insult to injury, the Knicks can get bounced from the postseason altogether with a loss tonight at home against the Celtics. But should the Knicks lose, it wouldn't be the start of a new trend, rather it would be a continuation of one that should have Knicks fans nervous about the big game at the Garden Friday. From not winning a playoff series since 2000 to how well the Celtics pay with their backs against a wall, things are not looking swell for the Knicks.

What a stupid article. There was never going to be a game 7. The only reason there is a game 6 is because the Knicks took the Celtics lightly in game 5.

And another thing... Nobody in their right mind expected the Celtics to win tonight but I fully expected them to compete for 48 minutes. Its pretty clear that Boston had all but given up until the Knicks got lazy. What a way to go out. Green and Bradley were the only men on the Celtics team tonight.

Dolan didn't like the idea of burial service in his garden so he told the boys to send the coffin back to Boston since it's the right place to enbalm KG and Pierce. Much respect to Jason Terry for getting them a four day extended season pass.

Now let the sale begin.
