New York, NY- Yes, I was and perhaps still am a New York Knick hater/non-believer, but I got to tell you, over the last 8 games they have proven me all so wrong. At a time where they are dealing with a magnitude of injuries an playing without a true center, the New York Knicks have gotten extremely hot. Last nights opponent, the Boston Celtics, a potential first round matchup, got a serious pimp slap to the face to let them know that the Knickerbockers mean business. Now lets reflect I stated in my “Knicks Nuggets: Knicks Have Edge Against Celtics: No Matter Who is on the Floor” article, the reality is, is that the Knicks are simply not a good matchup for the Celtics, especially without Rajon Rondo.
Carmelo Anthony is playing good basketball and from the looks of thing the Knick look like the team that was on a tear at the beginning of the season. We can also see how valuable Kenyon Martin has become to the team. I would say he is the Knicks answer to the miami Heats Chris “Birdman” Anderson. if the Knicks continue to shoot the lights out of the gym and get quality play from JR Smith, the rest of the Eastern Conference best watch out.
The Real test comes tomorrow against the Miami Heat, however the quesgtion is will they be playing without LeBron James and Dwayne Wade who both missed last nights game against the San Antonio Surs? We are in for a big finish and with both the Heat and Knicks playing this well, tomorrow just may be a glimpse of the Eastern Conference Finals.
