Enemy Chatter: The Knicks were a couple shots away

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from New York.



Just a couple more shots and this would have been a game? The fact that Iman Shumpert is talking about offense after the Knicks gave up 114 points shows the fundamental problem in New York.

To be fair, not all the Knicks are as delusional as Shumpert and Ray

    lol yup if only they had made 20 more shots, they might have won!

  • zippittyay

    And Lindsey Lohan is just a couple of shots from staying sober.

    to be fair…if just a couple of their jumpers had gone in the first few minutes they might have had a chance. They set an awful tone for themselves! But did the C’s have just a little to do with that? They took FULL advantage and made sure they never let their foot off the gas.

    Them not addressing the lack of defense is delusional. But I do agree with them on getting a couple of shots to fall and they are in it. I think what he meant to say is that if a couple of shots would have fell early on and they could have gone on a 8-0 run after the first quarter ended, they could have gained confidence and caught up. The fact that their shooting was god awful all night was the killer. If you weren’t fearing a little run by the Knicks and a momentum shift through 2 and a half quarters, you haven’t been watching the celtics close enough over the years. I can’t be the only one who gets nervous whenever opposing teams cut 30 point leads to 20, can I?

      This comment demonstrates that you are thoroughly paying attention to this team.. I fully agree with you.

        Thank you.

    We took ONE less shot and scored 41 more points. But yes the shots not falling was the issue. Good ol’ Knicks.

      I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who is a knicks fan and said if we didn’t hit so many “crazy shots” we would’ve lost. I think the whole organization is polluting their fans minds.

      • Curt Hays

        We have hit a ton of deep shots and “lucky” shots, but if it’s a pattern, is it luck?
        The Knicks missed A TON of routine shots. your friend is delusional if he can’t see that.

  • PresseyFever

    If they can’t even admit to playing an awful game, they’re going nowhere fast…

    Has anyone else noticed a new trend with the nba.com highlights. They seem to hate the celts. Three games in a row they have shown alot more of the losing teams highlights than that of the Celts.
    They seem to agree with the Knicks that it was them missing shots moreso than anything the Celts did, because NBA.com showed twice as many missed shots by the Knicks than made shots by the Celts.
    If you watched the Bucks highlights the other day, and didn’t know the score, you would’ve thought that Milwaukee won that game.

  • Rod Shaftwell

    A couple of shots away from what?

    Losing by 30 instead of 40?

  • CallingBatman

    I think it’s always a good strategy to score more points than your opponent. Seriously, I don’t doubt they’d normally have hit some of those early shots (as would many YMCA players) and they dug a hole for themselves, but the Knicks seem to have morale issues. The Celts played at both ends as a team, the Knicks devolved to iso plays and cheap fouls. It probably has something to do with not living up to pre-season expectations. whatever it is, I hope it continues.

    Just Like Knick fans….Even In defeat they wont show respect to the BETTER team. smh shame shame shumpert….
