WALTHAM – Patrick Ewing doesn’t need to be playing to guarantee a Game 7 victory over in the Celtics. In fact, he doesn’t even need to have a proven track record of accurate predictions. The Magic assistant coach is certain his team will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday.
‘It’s a whole team. Everyone has to step up in a Game Seven. Bring your A-game. Get our there and play with your hearts on your sleeve and come away with a win,’ Ewing said in an interview aired on ESPN. ‘Even though I’m not playing, I’m guaranteeing a win.’
That guarantee sits well with Doc Rivers, who was teammates with Ewing on the Knicks.
‘Oh that’s great. We feel great about that,’ Rivers said after practice on Saturday. ‘I’ve been on those Knicks teams where he had some predictions.’
Rivers could not hide his sarcasm. Click here to see just how well Ewing’s past predictions have panned out.
