Posted by


PREGAME MEAL. EACH WEEK SHANNON ALLEN TEACHES YOU TO YOU — HOW TO MAKE QUICK, HEALTHY, PREGAME MEALS. >>Tommy: THE ONE THING YOU WANT TO DO IS MAKE CHAUNCEY BILLUPS PLAY DEFENSE. YOU CAN ATTACK HIM. THE LITTLE CROSSOVER DRIBBLE THERE. THAT’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO AGAINST CHAUNCEY, MAKE HIM PLAY DEFENSE. WATCH THIS HERE, AND RONDO ONCE AGAIN PUTS THE MOVE GOING TO THE BASKET AND ENDS UP WITH TWO NIFTY LAY-UPS. NIFTY, I SAY. >>Mike: DELONTE WEST HAS COME IN FOR RAJON RONDO. RONDO SITS DOWN WITH TWO ASSISTS AND FOUR POINTS ON TWO OF THREE SHOOTING. JEFF GREEN IS ALSO IN THE LINE- UP. PIERCE STAYS OUT THERE AS DOES DAVIS. >>Tommy: WELL, DOUGLAS HAS HURT THE CELTICS IN THE PAST FROM THE OUTSIDE. THEY’RE GOING TO PAY ATTENTION TO HIM. >>Tommy: RONDO IS UP OFF THE BENCH. DELONTE WILL BE PLAYING THE TWO GUARD SPOT. THE FRONT LINE WILL BE REED, PIERCE AND DAVIS. THE KNICKS COUNTER WITH DOUGLAS, MASON, JEFFRIES, WILLIAMS AND STOUDEMIRE. DOUGLAS HAS BEEN VERY HOT SINCE THE ALL-STAR BREAK. AND SHOOTS THREES LIKE CRAZY. >>Tommy: RONDO’S IN THERE WITH DELONTE, THAT’S PRETTY GOOD, BECAUSE THEY HAVE TWO SMALLISH GUARDS IN THERE. >>Mike: JEFFRIES WILL COME OUT TO DEFEND GREEN. PIERCE, THE CATCH. LEAVES IT FOR DAVIS. STEPS INTO THE SHOT AND MISSED IT. JEFF GREEN THERE FOR THE OFFENSIVE REBOUND. BACK TO WEST. GREEN TRYING TO WORK ON JEFFRIES. GETS IT TO GO. >>Tommy: I’LL TELL YOU, THAT WAS SOME SHOT THERE. I DIDN’T THINK HE WAS EVER GOING TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE RIM. >>Mike: CELTICS ON AN 8-2 RUN HERE TO TAKE THIS LEAD. STOUDEMIRE. >>Tommy: THAT’S A GOOD SIGN. WHAT IT’S TELLING ME IS HE DOESN’T FEEL COMFORTABLE DRIVING TO THE BASKET. THAT’S GOOD. >>Mike: HE’LL TRY AGAIN. >>Tommy: REMINDS ME OF THE OLD RIM, THE TRAILING RIMS. >>Mike: STOUDEMIRE TO THE BASKET TOO HARD OFF THE GLASS. JEFFRIES OFFENSIVE BOARD, GETS IT BACK OUT TO WILLIAMS. DOUGLAS CAN’T SHAKE WEST, GETS IT OVER TO MASON. STOUDEMIRE WITH 10 ON THE SHOT CLOCK. UNDER A MINUTE TO GO IN THE QUARTER. THAT’S HOW STRONG STOUDEMIRE IS. >>Tommy: YES. ONCE HE GOES TO THE REVERSE SIDE, YOU ALMOST ALWAYS CAN SCORE, BECAUSE THE PLAY OF THE DEFENDER. YOU GOT TO PLAY HIM ON THE STRONG SIDE. IT’S LIKE USING A BODY TO PICK OFF THE MAN. THAT NET HANGING THERE. PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO JUMP UP THERE AND TRY AND DEFEND BECAUSE THEY GET THEIR FINGERS CAUGHT IN THE NET. >>Mike: FINAL MINUTE HERE OF THE FIRST QUARTER. >>Tommy: ARROYO IS IN FOR RONDO. >>Mike: NOW THEY KICK IT TO DAVIS, AND GLEN MISSES THE JUMPER. HE’S 1 FOR 3 OFF THE BENCH RIGHT NOW. CELTICS SHOULD GET THE BALL ONE MORE TIME HERE IN THE QUARTER. STOUDEMIRE. >>Tommy: THAT’S WHAT HE’S CAPABLE OF. BABY TRYING TO GET IN HIS WAY. THAT HEAD GOES UP AND HE’S LOOKING FOR A TARGET. >>Mike: RONDO OUT FOR THE FINAL POSSESSION. RAY ALLEN BACK IN, AND GLEN DAVIS LOOKING AROUND. BIG TIME NUMBERS FOR AMAR’E STOUDEMIRE AGAINST THE CELTICS, SHOOTING 64%. BETTER THAN 28 POINTS A GAME. >>Tommy: IF I’M NOT INCORRECT, K.G. GOT BOUNCED OUT OF ONE OF THOSE GAMES. BUT K.G. IS THE MAN TO DEFEND STOUDEMIRE. >>Mike: THEY’RE TAKING IT DOWN TO FOUR. SHORT WITH THE JUMP SHOT, AND THE QUARTER IS HISTORY. NEW YORK CITY IS THE SCENE TONIGHT, THE CELTICS AND THE KNICKS. THEY COULD BE FIRST ROUND PLAYOFF OPPONENTS. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE ABOUT 15 TO GO IN THE REGULAR SEASON AND THE KNICKS HAVE A THREE-POINT LEAD AT THE END OF ONE. >>Mike: KNICKS AND CELTICS RENEWING THEIR RIVALRY HERE IN NEW YORK CITY. A LOT OF GREAT NAMES ON THESE TWO ROSTERS RIGHT NOW. THESE TWO COULD WELL BE FIRST ROUND PLAYOFF OPPONENTS. THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING, VERY PRETTY ON THE NEW YORK SKYLINE AT NIGHT. WE’RE ABOUT TO START THE SECOND QUARTER. AMAR’E STOUDEMIRE HAD THE LAST SEVEN KNICKS POINTS IN THAT QUARTER. IT WILL BE ARROYO, MURPHY, WEST, DAVIS, AND GREEN. >>Tommy: GREEN IS GOING TO DEFEND ANTHONY. HE’S PLAYED CARMELO MANY MORE TIMES THAN THE CELTICS HAVE PLAYED.>>Mike: WILLIAMS GOT CAUGHT BASELINE. SIX ON THE SHOT CLOCK. JEFF GREEN IS GOING TO HAVE TO DO SOMETHING. >>Tommy: SHOW HIM TO THE BASKET. >>Mike: HE WANS TO GO BACK TO ANTHONY, DOES WITH EIGHT ON THE CLOCK. >>Mike: ANTHONY IS 4 FOR 5 IN THE GAME. A TOTAL OF 9 POINTS AND ONE REBOUND. THE KNICKS HAVE THEIR LARGEST LEAD, FIVE POINTS. WEST COMING TO THE BALL. DELONTE, PICKED OFF. DOUGLAS WITH THE QUICK HANDS. THE FIRST ON TROY. OBVIOUSLY THE FIRST ON THE TEAM HERE. 10:26 TO GO UNTIL THE HALF. DOUGLAS WILL BE AT THE FREE THROW LINE. DOUG L.A. THE OTHER NIGHT MADE NINE THREE- POINT FIELD GOALS AGAINST MEMPHIS. HAS REALLY PLAYED WELL. AVERAGES 14 A GAME SINCE THE ALL-STAR BREAK. ANYTIME THE CELTICS SCORE EXACTLY 99 POINTS THIS SEASON, LOG ONTO CSNNE.COM FOR COUPONS FOR A FREE CUP OF COFFEE. 99, YOUR LUCKY NUMBER. STILL PLENTY OF TIME. KRSTIC IS GOING TO COME IN. KRSTIC WILL COVER TURIAF. BACK TO TURIAF. AND A CHANCE FOR A THREE-POINT PLAY. >>Tommy: THE PICK-AND-ROLL PLAY. IT WAS A NICE PASS. THEY’VE GOT TO START GOING TO GREEN. BECAUSE ANTHONY IS DEFENDING HIM. AND ANTHONY WILL SHOW HIM TO THE BASKET. >>Mike: DOUGLAS SNEAKS IN FOR THE MISS. ANTHONY WILL TAKE IT. REBOUND THIS TIME TO DAVIS. QUICKLY OUT TO RAY ALLEN. KRSTIC RUNNING THE FLOOR. SENDS IT BACK OUT TO RONDO. DAVIS TAKES IT TO THE BASKET, MISSES. AND THE FOUL IS GOING AGAINST TURIAF. >>Tommy: I LIKE WHAT NENAD DOES. WATCH HIM ON THIS PLAY. HE NEVER GIVES UP. EVEN THOUGH THE MAN HAS GOT HIM BLOCKED OUT, JUST KEEPS MOVING. >>Mike: TURIAF WITH THE HOOK. >>Tommy: IF YOU’RE GOING FOR THE OFFENSIVE REBOUND, LET THE GUY — NEVER LET THE GUY GET YOU SQUARE ON HIS BACK. KEEP MOVING. >>Mike: GREEN LOOKING TO FIND HIS RANGE. GETS HIS OWN MISS. DELONTE INSIDE TO GREEN. WILLIAMS DEFENDING. >>Mike: DAVIS TOOK A SHOT TO THE NOSE AND IS DOWN. WILLIAMS FOR THREE ON THE OTHER END. DAVIS IS STILL DOWN AND BOSTON WILL TAKE A TIME-OUT. WE’LL CHECK OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO GLEN DAVIS. >>Mike: JUST A REMINDER TO LOOK FOR THE MILLER LIGHT TASTE GREATNESS MOMENT LATER ON IN TONIGHT’S GAME. 8 AND A HALF TO GO HERE IN THE FIRST HALF. ALL THE CELEBRITIES OUT TONIGHT. SPIKE LEE, DONNY WAHLBERG IN THE HOUSE WITH BRIDGET MOYNIHAN, WHOOPI GOLDBERG, KEVIN BACON AND HIS WIFE. AND THE TRUMPSTER IS HERE. WE TALKED TO THE DONALD. >>Tommy: HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED TO ME. THE ELBOW COME RIGHT UP. ANYBODY ELSE IN THE LEAGUE, THEY WOULDN’T CALL THAT. BUT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN HIS THIRD FOUL. >>Mike: I THOUGHT DOC — I DIDN’T SEE IT. I DIDN’T SEE IT. DOUGLAS. ANTHONY, LOSES THE HANDLE. MISSES THE SHOT. REBOUND SLAPPED. IT’S CONTROLLED BY BOSTON. IT’S GREEN, WEST, DAVIS, KRSTIC AND RAY ALLEN, OVER THE TOP TO DAVIS. HAD IT BLOCKED. >>Tommy: THE THREE GUYS WERE THERE TO BLOCK IT. >>Mike: TURIAF THE OTHER WAY. AND HE FINISHES STRONG. FIRST DOUBLE DIGIT LEAD OF THE NIGHT BELONGS TO THE KNICKS. IT’S A 12-0 NEW YORK RUN. THE BENCH AS GOOD AS THEY WERE THE OTHER NIGHT, HAVE A REAL HARD TIME. >>Tommy: THEY’RE GETTING THEIR SHOTS. >>Mike: RAY ALLEN TRYING TO FIGHT HIS WAY THROUGH. THE FOUL IS GOING TO GO ON. >>Greg: WITH GLENN DAVIS, NO WORSE FOR WEAR AFTER CATCHING THAT ELBOW. DID NOT GET ANY STITCHES. DOC RIVERS, DESPITE THE FACT THAT THE KNICKS HAVE 32 POINTS WAS NOT KEEN ON THE OFFENSE. HE SAID, GUYS, WE’RE JUST SIMPLY NOT EXECUTING ON OFFENSE RIGHT NOW. DON’T FORCE THINGS. IF SOMETHING’S NOT THERE, KICK IT BACK OUT AND RESTART. >>Mike: BILLUPS BACK IF THE GAME, SO IS RONDO. UNDERNEATH TO RAY. HE GETS A CHANCE FOR A THREE- POINT PLAY. >>Tommy: THIS IS ONE OF THE STAPLES OF THE CELTICS. WATCH RAY OFF THE PICK. THERE’S THE BUMP BY MASON. THAT BALL DELIVERED AT PRECISELY THE RIGHT TIME AND PRECISELY IN THE RIGHT AREA. >>Mike: 7:21 LEFT TO GO HERE. THOSE ARE THE FIRST POINTS OF THE SECOND QUARTER FOR THE CELTICS. ANTHONY GIVES IT UP. 8 ON THE SHOT CLOCK. BACK TO ANTHONY. TAKES IT TO THE BASKET. KNICKS ARE SHOOTING 48% TO THE CELTICS 37%. PAUL PIERCE MAKING HIS WAY TO THE SCORER’S TABLE. GOOD LOOK UNDERNEATH. THE BLOCK BY TURIAF. LOOSE BALL, PICKED OFF BY BILLUPS. KNICKS ARE MUCH QUICKER TO BALL RIGHT NOW. MASON FOR THREE. 37-25 KNICKS BY A DOZEN. AND DOC SAID I’LL TAKE A 20- SECOND TIME-OUT, THANK YOU. AND THE CROWD IS ENJOYING THIS. THE CELTICS FAMILY’S THOUGHTS ARE WITH THE PEOPLE OF JAPAN AND OTHER VICTIMS OF THE TSUNAMI. GIVE TO A SUPPORT OF DISASTER RELIEF EFFORTS IN JAPAN AND TSUNAMI RELIEF EFFORTS THROUGHOUT THE PACIFIC REGION. DONATIONS CAN BE MADE IN ANY AMOUNT AT REDCROSS.ORG, OR GIVE $10 BY TEXTING RED CROSS TO 90999. >>Tommy: TAKE A LOOK AT CARMELO. THERE WAS GREEN PLAYING THE PICK JUST THE LEAST LITTLE BIT. AND WHEN CARMELO GETS YOU LEANING JUST THE LEAST LITTLE BIT, THAT FIRST STEP. YOU GO — HE’LL GO RIGHT BY YOU ON THE FIRST STEP. >>Mike: CELTICS TURN IT OVER. >>Tommy: THEY DIDN’T SET UP THE ANGLE PROPERLY, AND, GOT TO KEEP YOUR EYE ON EVERYBODY. >>Mike: REBOUND PIERCE. RONDO GETS FOULED BY BILLUPS. WE’LL GET ANOTHER TIME-OUT. WE’LL TAKE IT. SMILEY FACE. OKAY. DO YOU WANT MORE TASTE
OR LESS TASTE? L-O-L, DOT DOT DOT. I JUST WANT A LIGHT BEER.
SMILEY FACE. WELL WHEN YOU LEARN TO TALK
LIKE A GROWN UP, COME ON BACK, AND I’LL GET YOU
A Miller Lite. O-M-G. AWW. SAD FACE. [ Male Announcer ]
MAN UP, AND CHOOSE A LIGHT BEER
WITH MORE TASTE. GRAB A TRIPLE HOPS BREWED
Miller Lite WITH THAT GREAT PILSNER TASTE. X-O, X-O. N-O, N-O. [ laughter ]>>Mike: KNICKS ARE ON TOP, WE’RE MORE THAN HALFWAY THROUGH THE SECOND QUARTER. TONIGHT’S NBA NEWS. HERE’S WHAT’S LEFT. BOSTON AND CHICAGO IN A TIE AND NO ONE HAS ANY EDGE. YOU CAN SEE BOTH HAVE SEVEN GAMES AGAINST PLUS .500 TEAMS. THE CELTICS DO HAVE ONE GAME IN CHICAGO, AND CHICAGO IS PLAYING SACRAMENTO TONIGHT. THEY’RE TIED IN THE FIRST QUARTER. >>Greg: OFFENSE A BIG CONCERN FOR DOC RIVERS EARLIER IN THE GAME. IT WAS DEFENSE HE WANTED TO TALK ABOUT. HE SAID THE NEW GUYS ARE COMING ALONG, BUT TRUST IS A BIG STEP FOR THEM. INSTEAD OF WORRYING SO MUCH ABOUT THEIR OWN MEN. IT’S KIND OF TOUGH TO GIVE UP ON THAT. HE ADDED, MOST NEW GUYS COMING OVER, THEY WANT TO SHOW YOU THEY CAN DEFEND. THEY DON’T WANT THEIR GUY TO SCORE. WE’RE TRYING TO CONVINCE THEM WE DON’T WANT THEIR TEAM TO SCORE. YOU DON’T HAVE A GUY, ANYBODY WITH THE BALL IS YOUR GUY. SO THAT’S KIND OF A TOUGH PHILOSOPHY FOR SOME PLAYERS, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE INDIVIDUAL DEFENDERS. >>Mike: GARNETT GOES ONE FOR TWO AT THE LINE. GARNETT HAS GOT STOUDEMIRE. KRSTIC CAME OVER AND LEFT TURIAF. PIERCE PICKS UP THE FOUL. I WOULDN’T WANT TURIAF. ANTHONY, HE MAKES IT LOOK VERY EASY. HE’S GOT 13 ON 6 OF 9 SHOOTING. THE KNICKS OVERALL ARE ON A 19- 3 RUN. GARNETT PASSES UP THE SHOT. BACK TO K.G. >>Tommy: NICE PLAY BY RAY. >>Mike: YOU’RE NOT GOING TO GO THROUGH TURIAF. >>Mike: JEFFRIES OUT — JEFFRIES IN, TURIAF OUT. TURIAF SIX POINTS, ONE REBOUND. EIGHT POINTS IN THE GAME NOW FOR KEVIN GARNETT, HE LEADS THE BOSTON SCORERS. CELTICS DOWN 11. BILLUPS. ANTHONY. CLEARED ASIDE FOR HIM. HE BUMPS PIERCE A COUPLE OF TIMES. GIVES IT UP TO BILLUPS. GETS GARNETT TO SWITCH. TRIES TO TAKE HIM OFF THE BOUNCE. THE REACH IN FOUL CALLED ON PIERCE. >>Tommy: WELL, THE CELTS ENDED UP HAVING TO SWITCH A BIG MAN OUT TO PICK UP BILLUPS, AND THEY TOOK AWAY THE OUTSIDE SHOT, BUT THERE’S K.G. ENDS UP WITH BILLUPS. AND THAT’S AN INVITATION TO GO TO THE HOOP. QUICKNESS AGAINST SIZE ON THE PERIMETER. GOES TO THE LITTLE GUY. >>Mike: BILLUPS STRETCHES IT OUT TO 12. >>Tommy: WHEN I WAS COACHING, I ALWAYS INCORPORATED WHAT MY TEAM DID, IS TO UTILIZE THE QUICKNESS MISMATCH RATHER THAN THE SIZE MISMATCH. >>Mike: I BET YOU DID THAT SUCCESSFULLY. >>Tommy: WELL, OF COURSE. VERY WELL. >>Mike: PIERCE GOING HARD TO THE HOOP. TOUGH SHOT. DOC RIVERS A LITTLE UPSET AT THE LACK OF CALL. >>Tommy: YEAH, WELL, THEY’RE NOT GOING TO CALL IT ON ANTHONY. WE’RE IN NEW YORK. THE PEOPLE ARE LIABLE TO BOO THEM. >>Mike: RONDO, NICE PLAY. GARNETT, BACK AT STOUDEMIRE DOWN. AGGRESSIVELY GOES AT IT. STOUDEMIRE, EQUAL TO THE TASK. AND THE FOUL IS GOING ON GARNETT. THE FIRST ON K.G. >>Tommy: WELL, LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS ON THIS PLAY. COME OVER HIS HEAD, HIT HIM IN THE HEAD. BUT THAT’S OKAY. THAT’S WHAT THE FOUL. YOU GOT FOULED, HE GOT FOULED WITH KEVIN GARNETT’S HEAD. KEVIN GARNETT’S HEAD HIT HIS ELBOW. THAT’S A NEW ONE. >>Mike: JEFFRIES WILL BE AT THE LINE. 36% SHOOTING FOR THE CELTICS. KNICKS AT 50. BOSTON YET TO MAKE A THREE. FOUR MINUTES TO GO IN THE HALF. RAY ALLEN COMES UP SHORT. STOUDEMIRE, ELBOWS HIGH, HAS THE REBOUND. ANTHONY CALLING FOR THE BALL AGAIN. BILLUPS IS GOING TO TAKE A THREE INSTEAD. CHAUNCEY BILLUPS IN DOUBLE FIGURES WITH 10. HE’S GOT A COUPLE OF THREES. AND A 15-POINT KNICKS LEAD, THEIR LARGEST OF THE NIGHT. KRSTIC FOULS STOUDEMIRE. >>Tommy: YOU KNOW, I LIKE THE FACT THAT HE GAVE HIM UP.>>Mike: SHOULD GET MORE THAN TWO. >>Tommy: I’M SURPRISED THEY DIDN’T CALL A FOUL ON KRSTIC, BECAUSE HE — >>Mike: NOT MUCH GOING RIGHT FOR THE CELTICS. >>Tommy: IT’S IN THE RULE BOOK. >>Mike: 7 OF 9 IN THE GAME NOW TONIGHT. BUT THEY’RE DOWN 14. AND THERE’S A LITTLE OVER THREE MINUTES TO GO IN THE HALF. KNICKS TURN IT OVER. CELTICS ARE GOING TO WORK ON ANTHONY. NOW THEY GO INSIDE TO KRSTIC, AGAIN TO TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANTHONY. TAKES HIS TIME AN GETS TWO. >>Tommy: ANTHONY BACKED OFF. THAT’S WHY THEY GOT IT IN TO NENAD. NENAD HAD SUPER POSITION ON ANTHONY. WELL, HE’S GOING TO MAKE THE HALL OF FAME IN THIS GAME. >>Mike: 7 OF 10 FROM THE FIELD. 15 POINTS. >>Tommy: I GOT TO TELL YOU, THE NEW YORK WRITERS ARE GOING TO MAKE HIM INTO A HALL OF FAME PLAYER AFTER TONIGHT’S GAME. >>Mike: PIERCE A LITTLE STEP AWAY ON THE BASELINE, NO. REBOUND UP TO BILLUPS. ACROSS COURT JEFFRIES, BACK TO FIELDS. PASSES UP THE THREE. LOOKING FOR HELP. PLENTY OF TIME STILL ON THE SHOT CLOCK. ANTHONY’S DONE IT AGAIN. TAKES IT AGAIN. FIELDS ON THE OFFENSIVE GLASS AND A FOUL ON STOUDEMIRE. WE’RE GOING TO GET OURSELVES A TIME-OUT. CARMELO ANTHONY THE DIFFERENCE IN THIS GAME SO FAR. HE’S GOT 15 FIRST HALF POINTS AND THAT’S JUST ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE. >>Mike: 2:02 LEFT TO GO IN THE HALF. TIME NOW FOR TONIGHT’S MILLER LIGHT TASTES GREAT MOMENT. PAUL PIERCE. >>Tommy: THIS DECIDING SHOTS IN BALLGAMES, THAT LITTLE FALLAWAY GETS THE GUY GOING BACKWARDS. AND HE DOES THE, THE EAGLE SWOOP. HERE’S ANOTHER ONE, HAS GOT STOUDEMIRE GOING BACK. AND THAT’S THE QUICKNESS AGAINST THE SIZE MATCH-UP. HE LIKES THAT EAGLE SWOOP. >>Mike: NATE, WHERE ARE YOU, MY MAN? CELTICS WOULD LIKE TO FIGURE A WAY, 2:00 TO GET THIS THING UNDER 10 BY HALFTIME. CARMELO ANTHONY HAS BEEN A DIFFERENCE MAKER. 7 OF 11 FROM THE FIELD. 15 POINTS. BILLUPS, ANTHONY, STOUDEMIRE, FIELDS, AND TURIAF FOR THE KNICKS. KRSTIC, GARNETT, RONDO, PIERCE, ALLEN FOR BOSTON. 26 POINTS IN 41 MINUTES BACK IN THAT DECEMBER 15th GAME HERE AT MSG. CELTICS AND KNICKS WILL PLAY IN THE FINAL GAME OF THE YEAR IN BOSTON. >>Tommy: IT IS LESS THAN A MONTH AWAY. >>Mike: BILLUPS. TAKEN DOWN BY GARNETT. KRSTIC RUNNING THE FLOOR. RONDO SNEAKS IT UP FOR TWO. >>Tommy: BILLUPS ONCE AGAIN. >>Mike: RONDO, THREE FOR FIVE FROM THE FIELD. HE’S GOT SEVEN POINTS. KRSTIC HAS THREE. A LITTLE 7-2 RUN BY THE CELTICS HERE TO MAKE IT A 10-POINT GAME. STOUDEMIRE JUST TURNS AND SHOOTS. STOUDEMIRE ALSO IN DOUBLE DIGITS NOW. HE’S GOT 11. FINAL MINUTE. RONDO INSIDE TO PIERCE, PIERCE MISSED IT. ANTHONY MISSES ON THE OTHER END, BUT IT GOES OFF GARNETT OUT OF BOUNDS. >>Tommy: TAKE A LOOK AT THIS GOOD DRIVE BY RONDO. THERE’S BILLUPS, WAY BEHIND HIM. THE LITTLE UNDERNEATH THE ARM LAY-UP. >>Mike: YOU KNOW ANTHONY IS GOING TO SHOOT THIS. AND HE WILL GET TO THE FREE THROW LINE. >>Tommy: LET’S SEE THIS. AUTOMATIC. AUTOMATIC. >>Mike: COMING UP AT HALFTIME LIVE PRESENTED BY MCDONALD’S. WE’LL HAVE ANALYSIS OF THIS FIRST HALF. ANTHONY FOR HIS FIRST TWO FREE THROWS OF THE NIGHT. 15 POINTS TOTAL. GREEN IS IN FOR KRSTIC, JEFFRIES AND WILLIAMS ARE IN. STOUDEMIRE. TURIAF ALSO TO THE BENCH. ANTHONY FOR A SECOND. 17 FIRST HALF POINTS. LANDRY OUT TO DEFEND RONDO. RONDO GOES RIGHT BY HIS MAN. KICKS IT TO THE CORNER. IT’S LONG. REBOUND BATTED AROUND. RONDO WINS THE BATTLE FOR THE BALL. ANTHONY DEFENDING GREEN. PIERCE BACK TO K.G., HE WILL TAKE IT. THE KNICKS SHOOT EXACTLY 50% FOR THE HALF, THE CELTICS SHOOT EXACTLY 35% FOR THE HALF. BOSTON ACTUALLY ATTEMPTED ONE MORE FIELD GOAL THAN THE KNICKS, BUT THEY WERE 14 OF 40 IN THAT FIRST HALF. LET’S CHECK IN AND SEE WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. >>WELL, AGAINST THE DETROITS AND MILWAUKEES OF THE WORLD, THEY JUST DON’T DO IT FOR CARMELO. BUT I GUESS WHEN YOU PLAY THE BOSTON CELTICS. >>THE RETRO UNIFORMS ON AND EVERYTHING. NOT ONLY BEATING K.G., BUT BILL RUSSELL AND LARRY AND TOMMY. JUST GET UP FOR IT WHEN IT’S THE KNICKS AND THE CELTICS. >>THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A DIFFERENT KNICKS TEAM AGAINST THE CELTICS. HOW ABOUT THAT GUY, STOUDEMIRE, HE’S GOT 11, MELO HAS 17. >>>WELL, THE CELTICS ARE DOWN 51-37 TO THE KNICKS IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. THEY WERE DOWN 15 IN THIS GAME. THEY WERE DOWN 15 AGAINST THE HORNETS. ARE YOU SNIFFING A COMEBACK? >>IF THEY START MAKING SHOTS. THEY’RE MISSING SHOTS THAT THEY NORMALLY MAKE, AND THEY’RE NOT EVEN REALLY TAKING BAD SHOTS. IT’S JUST THE BALL IS NOT GOING IN. YOU GO THROUGH SOME OF THOSE STRETCHES, NOT ONLY IN GAMES, BUT SOMETIMES TWO OR THREE, FOUR, FIVE, WEEKS. THIS HAPPENS. BUT THE CELTICS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DO THE JOB DEFENSIVELY. WE KNOW THAT THIS TEAM IS REALLY BASED ON THEIR OFFENSE IS BASED ON THIS. GETTING STOPS AT ONE END, AND THEN GOING DOWN AND GETTING EASY BUCKETS AT THE OTHER END. THAT’S LOOKING AT THAT, THAT’S WHAT YOU CALL CREATING OFFENSE FROM YOUR DEFENSE. BUT WATCH THE FEET OF CARMELO ANTHONY. THIS IS WHAT’S AMAZING TO ME. A GUY CAN MOVE HIS FEET SO WELL OFFENSIVELY, WITH GREAT FOOTWORK, BUT HE CAN’T MOVE HIS FEET DEFENSIVELY. >>I SAID AMAZING HOW THAT HAPPENS. >>YOU MADE A GOOD POINT. MAYBE HE DOESN’T WANT TO. >>WHO WANTS IT PLAY DEFENSE, RIGHT? RAJON RONDO TAKES IT TO THE HOOP. HE’S GOT SEVEN. WORRIED ABOUT RETIREMENT. AT HE’D YET TO HEAR OF MUTUAL
FUNDS, IRAS, OR ANNUITIES. BACK THEN, HE HAD SOMETHING
MORE IMPORTANT TO DO. HE WASN’T FOCUSED ON HIS FUTURE BUT FORTUNATELY,

THE BIG FOUR, YOU EXPECT NOTHING LESS FROM THEM. DOING THE JOB, 30 POINTS. ALSO, 13 REBOUNDS. AND FOUR ASSISTS. BUT THE TEAM ONLY HAS FOUR ASSISTS. SO YOU HAVE TO MOVE THE BALL A LITTLE BIT, BUT YOU HAVE TO GET SOME PRODUCTION OFF THE BENCH. REALLY THE BIG FOUR DOING THEIR JOB. >>WELL, BABY HAD A BIG GAME LAST GAME AGAINST NEW ORLEANS. HE WAS KEY TO THE SECOND HALF. PERHAPS WE’LL SEE THE SAME COMING UP NEXT. MIKE, TOMMY AND GREG FROM MSG ON THE WAY. >>>FIRST HALF REPLAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY TRIPLE-A, YOUR LICENSE TO SAVE. IT’S HALFTIME, THE CELTICS FIND THEMSELVES DOWN 14 HERE. IT’S NOT JUST LUXURY, IT’S SMARTER THAN THAT. THE CELTICS, 39 POINTS OFF THEIR BENCH THE OTHER NIGHT. >>Tommy: THE FIRST UNIT IS REALLY WHAT THE PROBLEM IS, TOO. THEIR OFFENSE, THEY WEREN’T MESHING, LIKE SO SMOOTH. WHEN THEY ARE SHOOTING WELL, EVERYTHING IS SO SMOOTH. RIGHT NOW THEY ARE SHOOTING OFF THE BENCH GUYS ARE TWO FOR 10. THAT CERTAINLY DOESN’T HELP. BUT GARNETT IS 50%, PIERCE ALMOST, RAY IS TWO FOR NINE. THE OTHER GUYS ARE 12 FOR 30. >>Mike: AND THE TIME-OUT IS TAKEN BY MIKE D’ANTONI. AND THEY’RE TAKING A FULL TIME- OUT. WE’LL TAKE A BREAK AS WELL. >>Mike: THAT GUY IS HERE AND TRAVELING WITH THE TEAM AND LOOKS GOOD. HE LOOKS LIKE HE’S LOST WEIGHT, LOOKS TO BE IT GOOD SHAPE.

HALFTIME STATS, BROUGHT TO YOU. WHAT DID THE COACHES HAVE TO SAY, GREG? >>Greg: IN THAT FIRST HALF WITH THE CELTICS DIDN’T SCORE FOR SIX MINUTES, LAWRENCE FRANK USED ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THE TEAM’S OFFENSE IN THE FIRST HALF AND THAT’S STALE. HE SAID THEY WERE MISSING TOO MANY BASKETS WITHIN SIX FEET, AND WE JUST WEREN’T MOVING THE BASKETBALL. WHEN WE WERE MOVING THE BASKETBALL, THAT’S WHEN WE SCORED. ON THE DEFENSIVE END, HE SAID THINGS ARE JUST WAY TOO COMFORTABLE FOR THEM IN THE FIRST HALF. IF WE’RE GOING TO GET BACK INTO THIS BALLGAME, WE HAVE TO MAKE THINGS UNCOMFORTABLE FOR THEM IN THE SECOND HALF. >>Mike: RONDO KICKS IT OUT THIS TIME. K.G. GETS A GOOD LOOK AND KNOCKS IT DOWN. >>Tommy: RONDO DREW THE ENTIRE DEFENSE DOWN JUST WITH THAT AGGRESSIVE PENETRATION. >>Mike: ANTHONY, BILLUPS DOESN’T HESITATE. REBOUND PIERCE. PIERCE THE PULL-UP JUMPER. ANTHONY IN A CROWD. BOSTON. NENAD I BELIEVE GOT A HAND IN THERE. DOES A GOOD JOB OF STAYING WITH RAY ALLEN. LOST IT ON THE WAY UP. TURIAF MIGHT HAVE BEEN THE ONE TO GET
