The Knicks Put All Their Perks in SMITHing: Knicks 100, Celtics 85

T

"Hey JC, the 'hands-off, eyes-closed' defense isn't that effective"

The Knicks came into TDGarden and kept the Celtics road wounds open to fester and spill out all over the parquet.

Without Kevin Garnett, the Celtics had no chance on the glass. Without Courtney Lee, the Celtics had to rely on the combination of Jordan Crawford, Terrence Williams, and Avery Bradley to defend JR Smith.

Their efforts proved fruitless as Smith completely torched the C’s, scoring 32 points on a shad over 50% shooting. ┬áIt’s hard to win when an offensively player like Smith has it going like that.

Grades to come…

    Bradley is regressing folks. I’ve been chastised for saying he brings virtually nothing else to the table right now except for defense. Another game and another stinker from him.

    I sense part of the problem is that Bradley is not really a point guard and/or teams have thoroughly scouted the offense without Rondo.

    You can play great games even when missing key players, but you can't win them when you keep giving the ball away with turnovers.
