The Pain

The New Yorks weren't sup­posed to have a prayer against the vaunted Bostons this post-season, having failed to beat them even once during the regular schedule.

Monster Amar'e Stoudemire, the team's most valuable player all year, sat out the last week but has been back... playing hurt.

Classy but aging point guard Chauncey Billups has also been playing with an injury, and even sat out this evening's game.

And yet there they were, in the first two games in Boston, with a three point lead with less than 30 seconds to play... only to come up empty at the end, and lose both contests.

I mean, if it's a blow-out, it's "O, well..." and fans hope the team can add the missing piece in the off-season which will make the Knicks serious contenders for the next several years.

But to come soooooo close so late in the game on the other guy's home court... that's pain!

For my part, I suffer the Knicks with one eye, and remember the thrill of 40 years ago with Willis and "Clyde," because I am fully involved with the Detroits in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
