However, rumors of the Celtics demise were greatly exaggerated; my "Team Green" were not yet ready to roll over and play dead! In the opening minutes of the game, the Knicks took off and had an 11 to 0 lead, but it was short-lived.

92 - 86
By the end of the first quarter, the Celts had closed the gap to
two points and keep it going from there. There were a couple
of ties, and at one point the Knicks managed to take the lead
by half a dozen or so. However, the efforts of Brandon Bass,
Jeff Green, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, Kevin Garnett, Avery
Bradley, and Terrence Williams made it clear:
There would be no "wake" this night!

My man Kevin Garnett had 17 points and 18 rebounds; four
of the five Celtics starters scored in double figures and Jason
Terry (The Jet) scored 17 points off the bench!
It was an amazing game -- game 6 of the series will be Friday
night at the Boston Garden! You know Mr. Eva and I will be
"couch-gating," and I'll be cheering for my guys!
Go get 'em, Celts!
