The Boston Celtics will play at the TD Garden for the first time Friday night since the events of the Boston Marathon.
The Celtics need a pick-me-up after losing the opening two games of their first-round playoff series against the Knicks. The city of Boston could use one, too, after a traumatic two weeks of bombings and manhunts and grieving.
With more than 50 wins for the New York Knicks and more than 27 points per game for himself, the numbers back Melo up. The Knicks won a division title, and Anthony will add the scoring title after the regular season ends Wednesday.
LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade had not played together in a couple of weeks, so the Miami Heat needed some time to get back into rhythm.
The Miami Heat have spent much of the last two weeks without Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, or Chris Bosh in the starting lineup. But, Friday night the Heat will have its Big Three on the court against the Boston Celtics, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Miami Heat All-Star guard Dwyane Wade is planning on returning to the starting lineup this Friday after sitting out the last six games due to a knee injury.
The New York Knicks have beaten the Miami Heat three of the last four times the teams have played including Tuesday night’s 102-90 victory. It’s given Knicks players and fans confidence they can hang with the Heat, but when the playoffs start, regular season victories mean nothing.
Every athlete dreams of leaving a legacy that will be remembered for decades. The 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers did that by winning 33 games in a row. Now, the Miami Heat are looking to top that Lakers team during a run they hope culminates with another NBA Championship.
Sometimes in sports, a player will run his mouth when he shouldn’t and then has his words shoved right down his throat. That’s just what happened to Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry Monday night against the Miami Heat.
It’s not like there’s any extra motivation needed for the Miami Heat, but the Boston Celtics may have added a little bit of fuel to the Heat’s fire with recent comments about the Heat’s 22-game winning streak.
