Merry Basketballmas.  The NBA season is on.

The New York Knicks waited a longer than usual offseason before finally getting a chance at revenge on a Celtics team that went 8-0 against them last year and unceremoniously bounced them from the first round of the playoffs.

And what a game it was today.  A cliche see-saw battle that saw both teams take big leads and look dominant in turn.

But the Knicks eked one out in the dwindling minutes, thanks to a closing-out offensive performance by Carmelo Anthony and a suffocating defense that disappeared at times but was there when it counted with under a minute to go.

What went right for the Knicks?  What went wrong?

How was their "new and improved" defense?

What was Tyson Chandler's impact?

How did rookies Iman Shumpert and Josh Harrellson do?

Did the Knicks miss Chauncey Billups?

Are Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire finally gelling?

Your answers are here.
