Sounds of the game… Celtics 110, Knicks 101

And let it begin. Quentin Richardson against the world, or at least the world champion Boston Celtics.

He didn’t hold back following Tuesday’s loss in Boston. He accused the Celtics of throwing their title, their rings and everything else in his face in the form of trash talk.

What could turn out to be a facsinating storyline if the Knicks remain relevant throughout the season evolved Tuesday night into a backyard brawl. Just listen to ‘Q’ explain his side of the story.

Richardson said the Celtics were trash talking [3].

Tensions flared in the second quarter when Richardson actually played peace-maker, separating his teammate Zach Randolph from Leon Powe under the Knicks basket as the two began to get into it.

Richardson said if this weren’t a basketball court, things would be different [4].

Paul Pierce on all the trash talk going on [5].

Celtics center Kendrick Perkins said ‘Q’ has it all wrong [6].

One thing is for sure, our Jessica Camerato doesn’t have it wrong. She has as terrific look back at last year, showing that this isn’t the first time Richardson has popped off in Boston’s direction [7]. Check out that and more on the Celtics Game Day Blog [8].

Oh by the way, the stars of the game did have something to say about how the Celtics managed to win without Kevin Garnett.

Perkins said there was no replacing Kevin Garnett on Tuesday [9].

Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said he takes comfort in outplaying Celtics in the fourth quarter [10].

Doc Rivers on the win without KG [11].

Paul Pierce said they didn’t feel extra pressure without the Big Ticket [12].
