For the past few days, analysts have been trying to force the concept of a rivalry between the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks. The problem is there isn’t one. Since the Celtics current Big Three joined forces, the Knicks have been horrible. New York has looked great this season, but it will take more battles like Wednesday night’s for any type of rivalry to take shape.
Wednesday’s game was a battle from start to finish. Amar’e Stoudemire and the Knicks needed a win to show they are for real, but they came up just short despite Stoudemire’s 39 points. Paul Pierce hit the game winner with 0.04 seconds remaining, and Nate Robinson unfortunately mistook Pierce for Shrek. Donkey can jump on Shrek’s back all he wants, but clearly he should think twice before doing it to Pierce again in the future. Check out this video of Nate Robinson falling on his head over Paul Pierce, courtesy of YouTube user JDRance:
Nate’s lucky he wasn’t get seriously hurt after that. Is it just me or did Pierce look like he tried to undercut him on purpose? Clearly Nasty Nate should have stuck to the one celebratory jump. Either that or he should have found Glen Davis and partied with him.Google+
