If the Knicks know what’s good for them, now is the time that they will stop screwing around with the Celtics. New York was definitively the better team in the first three games of this series, but all of a sudden, things have started to go awry in a hurry. G JR Smith came back from suspension and immediately shot 3-of-14 from the floor in a total dud of a game. F Carmelo Anthony took far too many shots away from the basket, and you can tell when he gets the ball in his hands that he doesn’t really trust his teammates around him and wants to do the job by himself. The defensive intensity has dropped significantly, and Boston is taking far too many wide open shots from the outside. That being said, even playing at their worst, the Knicks were in both Games 4 and 5 in spite of the fact that they lost them. That’s why we think that the percentages are there on New York finally getting the job done in this series and closing things out here at the TD Garden. The Celtics have used up a ton of energy to get back to this point in this series, and there just isn’t going to be enough left in the tank to get any closer to becoming the first team in NBA history to win a series after falling behind 3-0.
