One day after the second of the Boston bombers was captured in a city-wide lockdown, The Boston Celtics pulled into Madison Square Garden to take on The New York Knicks. Likely to be the highest-rated matchup of the first-round, the teams did not disappoint, opening the series with an electric back-and-forth first half. The Garden was uproariously loud, erupting every time the Knicks hit a gut-punching 3. Each time New York took momentum, the Celtics seized it back, taking a 53-49 lead into halftime.
