The New York Knicks went into last night's game 5 of their Eastern Conference playoff series against the Boston Celtics in Madison Square Garden, leading 3-1 in the seven game series.

After losing game 4 in Boston, the Knicks attempted to 'set the tone' for game 5 by wearing all black in preparation for a 'funeral' for their great rivals. However, the funeral didn't quite go as planned.


The Celtics came back from an early 11-0 deficit to win 92-86 to keep the series alive (Boom Boom). Game 6 now moves to Boston before a potential game 7 in New York.
