Instead, the Knicks insisted their focus is only on Game 3 Friday night, and with good reason. With this best-of-seven first-round series moving 200 miles north up I-95, the Knicks expect to be greeted by a more determined Celtics team in front of one of the NBA’s more raucous crowds.
At Celtics practice Thursday, Paul Pierce described the Celtics as “a desperate team now,” which is exactly what the Knicks said they are preparing for after taking the first two games in New York.
“I expect a team that’s going to fight, make some adjustments,” Carmelo Anthony said after practice. “They’re home, so a lot is going to go into that emotionally, physically. We have to be prepared for whatever they’re going to throw at us and just build off these last two games.”
