Bulls Top Knicks, Fight for T-Mac

Posted by Ace Staff on February 17th, 2010

Derrick rose was able to battle through his hip injury to lead the Chicago Bulls with 29 points as they went on to trounce the New York Knicks 118-85 last night at the United Center. Both organizations are currently fighting to make a run at one of the last playoff spots, competing to bring in Houston Rockets veteran Tracy McGrady. The Knicks are considered frontrunners due to the young talent they have to offer between Jared Jeffries, Jordan Hill and Larry Hughes along with a pair of future draft picks. ESPN’s Marc Stein speculates for the deal to finalize tomorrow according to a league source. Chicago isn’t out of the chase just yet, as they proposed to give up Brad Miller, Tyrus Thomas and either Kirk Hinrich or John Salmons to land the 2X NBA scoring champion. New York will try to redeem themselves against the Bulls tonight in their rematch at the Madison Square Garden. Game time is set for 7:30 PM.

Celts Win, Hope for Robinson

Posted by Ace Staff on February 17th, 2010

The Boston Celtics regrouped after the NBA All-Star break to close out the Sacramento Kings 95-92 yesterday at the ARCO Arena. According to a number of sources, the Celts front office is currently busy attempting to complete a deal for New York Knicks guard Nate Robinson. Boston will likely be forced to exchange Eddie House and a future draft pick for the 3X slam dunk champion.

The C’s entered the All-Star festivities with two straight losses against the Magic and Hornets. They were certainly relieved to find their rhythm looking ahead to Thursday’s contest against the Los Angeles Lakers.

“It was important for us to get this win and get some momentum,” said Kevin Garnett following his nine point performance. “It was a team effort tonight. Our bench came in and played unbelievable.” Purchase your Boston Celtics tickets right here with us at AceTicket.com!

Celtics Discussing Nate Robinson

Posted by Ace Staff on January 20th, 2010

Celtics Blog posted in regards to speculation surrounding the C’s dealing for Nate Robinson sometime in the near future. The 2X Dunk champion PG has been struggling with the New York Knicks and at this point would prefer to showcase his talents elsewhere. The New York Daily News spoke with someone close to Doc Rivers, who said for the head coach to believe “he can connect with anybody.” Last year Boston was able to form Stephon Marbury into his role to help strengten the guard position off the bench. Robinson, who was ignored for 14 straight games through December could be a similar story. The 25-year old is averaging 13 points and 3.2 assists so far this season. In other Celtics news, Kevin Garnett just recently returned to practice yesterday and expects to be back on the floor for their game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday. “He looked real fluid, he got up and down the court, and we got him the ball in the post,” said captain Paul Pierce. “It’s just good to have him out there. His presence, you feel it and see it on the court.” Boston Celtics tickets are now available!

Robinson Hopes to Join C’s

Posted by Ace Staff on December 21st, 2009

The New York Knicks and Nate Robinson haven’t been on good terms lately to the point where a divorce might soon be necessary. In light of recent discussions Robinson has been rumored to emphasize his desire to play for the Boston Celtics over all other teams this regular season. The C’s are now relying heavily on Rajon Rondo to take charge with no true point guard to back him up. Marquis Daniels is expected to return from injury around the NBA All-Star break. Robinson through 12 games contributed an average of 10.9 points from 22 minutes. The former two-time slam dunk champion hasn’t touched the floor since December 1st. “D’Antoni did not even look Nate’s way,” said Robinson’s agent Aaron Goodwin. “Sent a clear message to me that he had no intention to play Nate Robinson anytime soon.” Check back for more NBA trade updates right here with us at AceTicket.com!

Knicks Dominate Suns By 27

Posted by Ace Staff on December 2nd, 2009

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.

Kobe Drops Knicks at Home

Posted by Ace Staff on November 25th, 2009

Longtime franchise player Kobe Bryant took control once again for his Los Angeles Lakers with 34 points, as they went on to defeat the New York Knicks 100-90 yesterday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. Between Pau Gasol (11), Andrew Bynum (17) and Ron Artest (17), New York was simply unable to match the size and strength of LA through all four quarters.”We like to use our height to our advantage,” said Bynum. “It doesn’t do any good if you don’t have the right game plan and the right fundamentals, but we had that for the most part, too.” Wilson Chandler and Nate Robinson led the Knicks in scoring with 15 points apiece. The Lakers were up by as much as 24 before New York’s reserves came in to cut the deficit to 10. “We needed to shoot the ball extremely well tonight to have a chance to win, because their defense is predicated on making teams shoot contested jump shots rather getting into the lane,” said Knicks center David Lee. “And when you do get into the lane, they have two 7-footers in there. That’s why we needed to shoot well from the 3-point line. We put up 33 of them, and we didn’t hit as many as we should have.” The Lakers will have a couple days to rest before they go up against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday, November 18th. The Knicks are scheduled to host the Sacramento Kings tonight in the MSG at 10:00 PM. 

Knicks Fall to Celts in OT

Posted by Ace Staff on November 23rd, 2009

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!

Knicks Rally Past Pacers

Posted by Ace Staff on November 19th, 2009

The New York Knicks produced 34 fourth quarter points to come back and win over the Indiana Pacers 110-103 last night at Conseco Fieldhouse. Al Harrington and Larry Hughes led in scoring off the bench with 26 and 22 points. With the win the Knicks snapped a tough six-game losing streak while holding the Pacers from claiming their sixth consecutive victory. Post-game talks were mostly revolved around the 2-9 Knicks possibly signing veteran guard Allen Iverson. The 34-year old former MVP split with the Memphis Grizzlies after appearing in just three games. Head coach Mike D’Antoni is excited for discussions to continue, saying “I think it will help things. You got a guy who’s a proven scorer, probably a Hall of Famer. He can only do positive things, I think, to this team.” Hopefully New York can keep it going against the winless New Jersey Nets on Saturday. The Pacers will look to get back on point Friday when hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers.

3 Games Too Long for Iverson, Grizzlies

Posted by Ace Staff on November 17th, 2009

Allen Iverson is expected to be waived at some point today after not being placed on waivers by the league deadline, giving great indication that he and the Memphis Grizzlies are parting ways. The 34 year-old guard began complaining during his debut against the Sacramento Kings. Even though he just came back from injury (torn left hamstring), Iverson expected to start immediately and receive heavy minutes. The Answer had some choice words for the organization following the contest. “Yeah, I’ll be disappointed (if he’s a sub this season),” said Iverson. “I’m not a reserve basketball player. I’ve never been a reserve all my life and I’m not going to start looking at myself as a reserve. … To answer the question, ‘No, I’m not a bench player. I’m not a sixth man. Go look at my resume and that will show you I’m not a sixth man.” The Grizzlies will be forced to pay only a fraction of his $3 million contract. So far not many teams have jumped to get Iverson after his quick fall out with Memphis. The New York Knicks have already announced a possible interest in the veteran.

Garnett Says He’s Good to Go

Posted by Ace Staff on October 1st, 2009

Boston Celtics All-Star power forward Kevin Garnett has declared he’s healthy and looking forward to this upcoming season. Since last week he has been able to scrimmage 5-on-5 with his teammates.  “It’s up and down, man. There ain’t no standing around in 5-on-5,” said Garnett. “My leg is almost 100 percent going forward. Better than anything I’m playing without any pain, which is something I really haven’t had for some time now.” Garnett is not only thrilled about being able to compete but has also developed a quick liking to the play of new additions Rasheed Wallace, Marquis Daniels, and Sheldon Williams.  “In the pickups we’ve played here, you already see it – him and I on the same page,” said Garnett specifically of Sheed. “I can’t even describe it…To be honest, it’s just weird to see him here in the green, and see how our chemistry is without even touching the ball, just how we flow.”  The Celtics are now at new highs with their core lineup back with new veteran talents. They will be opening up at the TD Banknorth Garden Friday, October 9th against the New York Knicks.  Their first official game will take place on October 27th against the Cavaliers in Cleveland before hosting the Charlotte Bobcats back in Boston on the 28th.
