Game 1 Thread: Knicks vs. Celtics



Ohhhhh man oh man oh man. Ohhhh man. Oh man. It's actually time. We have our final updates leading up to Game 1, which tips off sometime after 3:00 on ABC. The Knicks updates:

Mike Woodson wouldn't reveal his match-ups, so one can only guess how Iman Shumpert, Chris Copeland, and Carmelo Anthony will line up with Paul Pierce, Jeff Green, and Brandon Bass. Prigioni's absence means we won't see any point guard tandems until Jason Kidd checks in, but Pablo might be back on Tuesday.

Before the game starts, the Garden will host presentations from both New York and Boston color guards and both the Knicks and Celtics, which is good stuff. Glad they're doing that.

That's it. It's very nearly time. Here are a few more things to read if you'd like. Otherwise, comment along here, check out Celtics Blog (and, if you choose to comment, please be courteous), and please don't post large photos, .gifs, or links to illegal streams in the thread.
