With all the hype around the Knicks' streak, I'll admit I watched the game tonight against the Boston Celtics.
OK, that's not an entirely true statement. I really only paid attention to the 2nd half, and it was in between talking to my cousin, Eileen, and answering rapid fire texts from people who seemingly all decided to start texting at once.
I screamed into the phone, and probably busted Eileen's eardrum when Amare launched the 3 at the end of the game. Too bad the shot was after the time expired on the clock. Paul Pierce got the game winner. If you haven't seen the shot (i.e. of course, it's on NBA.com), it's here for your convenience: http://on.nba.com/ijJkwM
During NBA All-Star weekend 2010, I was at a party at the W hotel in Dallas and saw Dino Gallinari. Usually, I like the Euros, but I wasn't overly excited to see him standing in the room (i.e. maybe because he looks really young to me). My friend, Teri, and I were talking about him and she thinks he's a great guy. I don't know him at all, but I do know that he was ballin' in the 2nd half of the game. I even texted her and told her to get in front of a TV to see him playing well. He finished a 3-point play, to tie the game at 116.
The Knicks win streak ends at 8. Amare Stoudemire's streak of 30 or more points a game, extends to 9. I stopped counting when he scored 31 points, but NBA.com says he ended the night with 39 points and 10 boards.
AS = Amare Stoudemire = All-Star!
Paul Pierce had 32 points, 10 rebounds, and the game winner...
Celtics defeated the Knicks 118-116.
I need to get to the The Garden... Maybe I'll go on Wednesday (i.e. for the Thunder v Knicks game).
