Our PS3 Likes the Celtics in Five

Honestly, we bought NBA 2K11 specifically for this post, so this one's a long time coming. Unfortunately, our PlayStation3 has little faith in the Knicks to pull off the upset: The virtual Celtics took out the virtual Knicks in five games, wrapping up the series in the TD Banknorth Garden, or whatever the hell that place is called. Perhaps most depressingly, the Knicks lost both games at MSG, both by double digits, 105–93 in Game 3 and 111–100 in Game 4. The killer all series was Paul Pierce, who averaged 31.4 points per game. The Knicks had a chance to pull out Game 1, but Carmelo Anthony's shot was blocked by Kevin Garnett as time expired, and the Knicks lost 100–99. Their only win was a Game 2 blowout in Boston, led by Carmelo's 38 points. For what it's worth, attempts to make video-game Andy Rautins save Princess Zelda all prove unsuccessful.
