Question: What do a 28-37 record and 612 Bachelor's Degrees from Harvard University have in common?
Answer: You can buy both with $104 million.
Unfortunately for the Knicks, Isiah Thomas chose to purchase the 28-37 record with his $104.
Looks like Isiah can't explain that one either.
The Knicks are led by self-proclaimed best PG in the league, Stephon Marbury. The confused Marbury is averaging 21.1 ppg, 8.1 apg and 1.42 spg, while shooting a respectable 46% from the field. Jamal Crawford expreses his love for not scoring, despite averaging 17.3 ppg. Crawford is shooting a robust 39.3% from the floor this season. Tim Thomas is averaging 11.9 ppg to go with 3.5 rpg, but Timmy does hit 42.4% from three. Kurt Thomas is playing well with 11.8 ppg to go with 10.3 rpg while shooting 47.7% from the floor. Mike Sweetney is looking like a bit of player with 8.3 ppg and 5.3 rpg while shooting 53.4% from the floor. Penny Hardaway is half the player he used to be on a bad day while averaging 7.3 ppg, 2.4 rpg and 2 apg in 24 minutes a night.
The Knicks have struggled quite a bit against the Celtics this season. Thus far, the Celtics have won three meetings by an average score of 111-92. The Knicks most recent loss to the Celtics was on February 11 in Boston. Stephon Marbury led the knicks with 31 points and 10 assists while shooting 15-18 from the line. Kurt Thomas went fairly nuts with 16 points and 14 boards. Mike Sweetney had 19 while hitting 9-10 from the line. No other Knicks reached double figures. Jamal Crawford went scoreless in 20 minutes.
The Celtics got 25 from Ricky Davis off the bench on 10-19 shooting. Paul Pierce went for 17 while hitting 3-4 from the field. Raef LaFrentz went for 15 points and 14 boards. Gary Payton and Tony Allen both went for 12, though Allen got his in just 16 minutes. Jiri Welsch went for 10 off the bench. Kendrick Perkins went for 7 points, 7 boards, 2 blocks and 4 fouls in 17 minutes of play. Marcus Banks had 5 assists and 3 turnovers in 13 minutes.
The Knicks are a rough bunch this year. I'm thinking this could be a Justin Reed game. Atleast, I am holding out hope. The Celtics have a very, very, very good chance at going 10 games over .500 for the first time in a very, very, very long time.
