The Celtics need a pick-me-up after losing the opening two games of their first-round playoff series against the Knicks. The city of Boston could use one, too, after a traumatic two weeks of bombings and manhunts and grieving.
With more than 50 wins for the New York Knicks and more than 27 points per game for himself, the numbers back Melo up. The Knicks won a division title, and Anthony will add the scoring title after the regular season ends Wednesday.
The 12-year NBA veteran guard averaged 4 points per game last season.
Charlie Share was 85.
It’s a spot that not many believed they would be in, but the Boston Celtics are just one win away from the NBA Finals.
These days, even the tiniest thing can quickly turn into an Internet phenomenon.
