I will leave it for someone else to provide the game recap beyond what’s staring you in the face above, but rest assured that tomorrow will bring a full description of what went wrong — and a few things what went right — plus what the Knicks will need to do against the Celtics in Game 2.
Although I wrote in before tip-off tonight that I suspected the officials would have a significant role to play in how this series turned out, I certainly never expected such an immediate — and egregious — failure to do their jobs. More to come when the sun rises.
What do you think? Let me know in the comments section or shoot me a tweet @LoHudKnicks.
