Alan Hahn's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
#Knicks going for 8th straight win tonight. Last time they won 8 straight also involved the C's. Remember? More:
The photo is from Dec. 15, 2010, when Paul Pierce's last-second shot beat the Knicks after Amar'e Stoudemire's potential game-winning three was just one-hundredth of a second too late.
The Knicks had won 8 in a row before that loss and Paul Pierce took a bow at center court.
The Knicks can return the favor to Prince Paul and the Celtics. A win tonight effectively ends Boston's five-year reign as Atlantic Division champs. They would trail the Knicks by 8.5 games with 9 remaining and the Knicks would own the tiebreaker with the season series.
