#TaniaOnTheScene - Go ahead and be afraid, New Yorkers. Your basketball team just wore black to another team’s burial — a really dumb thing to do — only for that team to rise from the crypt and turn this first-round series into something more frightening than a zombie film.
So yes, be afraid, Knicks fans. Be very, very afraid.
Long before this 92-86 loss in Game 5, Doc Rivers had already addressed the 2004 Red Sox with his 2013 Boston Celtics. As he walked with two reporters from Wednesday night’s postgame news conference to his Madison Square Garden locker room and talked about catching the early bus home, Rivers was asked by ESPNNewYork.com if he’d brought up the historic 2004 ALCS with his team.
Among the smartest guys in sports, Doc Rivers almost never gets boxed in by a question. He was boxed in here.

Cut Down by Injury, Louisville’s Kevin Ware Cuts Down Net
#TaniaOnTheScene - The script played out like it was supposed to, like it had to. Because after a week of universal support from across the country, what other way could Kevin Ware have ended the season?
Certainly, not as a runner-up. Not after all that happened. A gruesome leg injury, an emotional response and a rallying cry followed by a week in which he became a national celebrity.
His Louisville teammates delivered the storybook ending, beating Michigan 82-76 in the national championship game at the Georgia Dome on Monday. The teammate who had motivated them throughout the past week relished an unexpected chance to cut down the nets with guys he calls his brothers.
