A spry KG scored 20 points in 19 minutes and Glen Davis came off the bench for 15 of his own to help Boston beat the Knicks 97-84 in Hartford tonight. The Big Ticket has looked absolutely fantastic since training camp and tonight was no different. Kevin hit his first 5 shots and went 9 for 11 from the field and grabbed 4 boards. Rondo dazzled the XL Center crowd with his usual array of nasty dribbling and sick passes-including one he threw with his left hand behind his head to Semih Erden for a layup.

The Celts now have a few days off before they play the final preseason game of the year. They will face the Nets on Wednesday night at the Garden.Tip-off will be at 7:30pm.
Well, I bought my ticket for Opening Night today. It was expensive, but there is no doubt in my mind it will be worth every penny. This Celtics team has fans like myself very excited. They are all pretty healthy, they are deep and the chemistry is good, and will only get better...
