This was one helluva game. Granted, I was only able to watch the fourth quarter, but that was enough. For those who don’t know, Comcast was relegated to an audio-only feed for nearly the entire 3rd quarter.
In a nutshell, Perkins was a monster (16 pts, 8 reb, 3 blks), Rondo returned to form (15 pts, 7 reb, 7 assts) and Leon Powe (14 pts, 7 reb) lead the way off the bench. And then there’s Scal. He played well in KG’s absence and buried the Knicks with a 3-pointer in the final minute. Comcast went a bit overboard with their praise in the postgame, but hey, I guess Scal deserves it.
Pierce (22 pts, 5-13 FG) didn’t shoot particularly well, but he dropped 11 in the final quarter as the Knicks refused to die.
Not sure what Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni had up his ass, but the dude was bitching all night. Some guy named Wilson Chandler (23 pts) played the game of his life.
