The New York Knicks scored 39 first quarter points on their way to blow out the Phoenix Suns 126-99 yesterday at Madison Square Garden. Daniel Gallinari took control for his squad with 27 points and 10 rebounds. “It means a lot when you play against a team that plays your game and is at the top of the list, because they have the best record,” said Gallinari. “So it’s great for us.”
Veteran PG Steve Nash led Phoenix with 20 points and eight assists. Before last night the Suns had claimed victory in their last four contests by at least 20 points. “Terrible performance,” said Nash. “I’m embarrassed. Obviously just a disastrous effort. We just have to wash it away and pick it up tomorrow.” The Suns will have to find their rhythm quickly for their next challenge in Cleveland against the Cavaliers this Wednesday as the Knicks travel to Orlando to matchup with the Magic.
Marian Gaborik and Sean Avery scored multiple goals for the New York Rangers on their way to defeat the Columbus Blue Jackets 7-4 yesterday at Madison Square Garden. Derek Mackenzie and Jared Boll notched the first two goals for the Blue Jackets in the first ten minutes of play. After the first period the Rangers found themselves up 3-2 and decided to keep the momentum going. That’s when Avery joined the action with back to back goals of his own a minute apart early in the second.
Following seven consecutive goals by New York, the Blue Jackets were able to net two more but it simply just wasn’t enough. “The biggest thing was coming back from that 2-0 deficit. It’s a big boost to our confidence,” said Avery. “It’s only one game. We can be happy about the fact that we got some goals from other guys, but it’s got to be a consistent thing.”
Columbus will look to show more consistency for their next game tonight against the Montreal Canadiens. “We got off to a good start. They took a timeout and they turned up the heat. We didn’t,” said defenseman Mike Commodore. “They are quick and we were on our heels a little bit. Then it was 7-2 before we knew it. We were still in it after the first. Then the second period was just a disaster.”
The Rangers are set to take on the Florida Panthers tomorrow at 7:30 PM before heading to Tampa Bay to match up against the Lightning. The best deals for New York Rangers tickets can be found right here at AceTicket.com!
Kevin Garnett broke the final tie in overtime at the buzzer, nailing the go-ahead jump shot from the top of the key for the Boston Celtics to defeat the New York Knicks 107-105 last night at Madison Square Garden. Paul Pierce led Boston with 33 points, playing decoy in the final possession with the assist to the wide open KG. “I knew they were going to sort of follow Paul and he’s going to draw a lot of attention,” said Garnett, “and I just had to make the shot.”
New York was up seven in the fourth quarter before the Celtics were able to come back and force the extra time. After losing to the Orlando Magic Friday night, the Celtics found themselves struggling against a Knicks team with just three wins this regular season.
“We played better today. Not the way we’d like to, of course, but better,” said Pierce. “We’re going to build on that. We’re still a work in progress.” Rajon Rondo was one rebound away from a triple-double with 14 points and 10 assists. Kendrick Perkins had a huge night for Boston with 16 points and 13 boards. Al Harrington netted 30 points for New York along with David Lee and Nate Robinson’s 41 combined.
The C’s are set to host the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday, November 25th at 7:30 PM. Boston Celtics tickets are now available!
Alex Ovechkin returned to the line up yesterday and produced right away for his Washington Capitals with a goal in the first period as they went on to defeat the New York Rangers 4-2 at Madison Square Garden. The premier LW missed six games due to injury but has still been able to find the net 15 times in just 15 games played. “It’s always nice when you get hurt and you come back and you score in the first period on your first shot,” said Ovechkin. “You feel pretty good about yourself. After that I feel pretty cool. I was not afraid to take some hits and go battle.”
Marian Gaborik scored the first goal for the Rangers before Ovechkin answered later in the period. Gaborik was able to score again 8:23 into the third period to tie it at 2-2. Matt Bradley scored the go-ahead goal for the Caps with five minutes left. Brian Pothier then fired one in the empty net unassisted to wrap things up in New York.
The Rangers have to wait until Saturday to redeem themselves at home against the Florida Panthers. Washington is scheduled to host the Montreal Canadiens on Friday, November 20th.
The 2009 MLB season has finally been put to rest, and for Red Sox fans this could only mean one thing….When does the 2010 regular season start up? The countdown for next season starts at 151 days, when the Red Sox host the new found world champion New York Yankees April 5th at Fenway Park.
There have been debates regarding weather and field status for opening day. Fenway is hosting numerous events around the annual Winter Classic on January 1st, leaving questions and doubts about the fields overall condition. One option standing is for the series to be held at Yankee Stadium and move a set of mid-season games to Boston in return.
The Sox will first officially meet for spring training by the end of February. Their first game in Florida will be against the Tampa Bay Rays on March 6th. Stay tuned for more updates this offseason. 2010 Boston Red Sox schedule and tickets are available right here at AceTicket.com!
Hideki Matsui really lived up to the name Godzilla with three hits and six RBI’s last night at Yankee Stadium, as the New York Yankees went on to win Game 6 and the World Series over the Philadelphia Phillies for their 27th championship. Matsui will be joining the list of free agents this offseason, and certainly has proved to the organization that he is worth every penny they are giving him. “It’s awesome,” Matsui said through a translator. “Unbelievable. I’m surprised myself.”
Veteran Andy Pettitte notched the win from five innings pitched, letting up three runs and four hits. Mariano Rivera seemed collected as usual while putting the series to a close. The trusted right-hander allowed just one hit through the final five outs.
The Yankees were in control all game after Matsui’s two-run homer in the second. They were up 7-1 in the 6th when Ryan Howard knocked a longball to left, bringing in Chase Utley to pull within four. “You don’t look at it as a failure,” said Howard. “We had a great season. We just got beat by the better team.”
Alex Rodriguez, after a dramatic year full of injury and steroid allegations was thrilled at the thought of finally collecting a ring next April. “My teammates, coaches and the organization stood by me and now we stand here as world champions,” said Rodriguez. “We’re going to enjoy it, and we’re going to party!” Already looking forward to 2010? Look right here with us at Ace for Yankees and Phillies tickets next season!
Alex Rodriguez knocked in Johnny Damon for the go-ahead run after a heads up double steal in the top of the 9th inning, as the New York Yankees rallied to win 7-4 over the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday at Citizens Bank Park. Now holding a 3-1 advantage in the 2009 World Series, the Yankees are just one win away from claiming their 27th championship.
“There’s no question – I’ve never had a bigger hit,” said Rodriguez.”The one time I got hit in yesterday’s game, my first at-bat, kind of woke me up a little bit and just reminded me, ‘Hey, this is the World Series, let’s get it going a little bit.’” It couldn’t be a better time for A-Rod to find his rhythm heading into tonight’s game against the left-handed Cliff Lee, who dominated the Yanks with 10 K’s during Philadelphia’s 6-1 Game 1 victory in New York.
AJ Burnett will get the call to start on the mound for the Yankees. Burnett is 1-0 with a 3.55 ERA so far this postseason. Game time is set for 7:57 PM. If necessary Game 6 and 7 will take place in New York Wednesday and Thursday night.
World Series tickets are now available!
With the Yankees down 0-1 in the World Series heading into their last game in the Bronx before moving to Philadelphia for the next three contests, A.J. Burnett saw Pedro Martinez on the other side and realized the tough battle ahead. “I knew it was going to be crazy,” said Burnett. “I knew he was going to be on his game. I focus on myself, but you can’t help but watch his game. It’s the funnest I’ve had on the field.” Burnett certainly brought his A game while enjoying himself on the mound at Yankee Stadium, giving up just one run in seven innings with nine strike outs as the New York Yankees went on to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1.
Martinez performed well for Philadelphia, striking out eight and surrendering three runs in his six-plus innings pitched. Two of the three runs came from Mark Teixeira and Hideki Matsui solo-home runs. The Yankees bats were silent until Teixeira’s awaited bomb to center field in the fourth. “I think the home run got the crowd back in it,” Teixeira said. “It kind of put a little bit of a crack in their armor.” Cole Hamels (PA) and Andy Pettitte (NY) are the next scheduled pitching duel for game three this Saturday. The series now moves to Citizens Bank Park and if necessary will move back to New York for Games 6 and 7.
