Schilling to Knicks: 'Good luck golfing'
ESPN analyst Curt Schilling was on the 2004 Red Sox team that made baseball history by ralling from an 0-3 deficit to beat the New York Yankees in the ALCS. It was in that context that he was asked to discuss the Celtics-Knicks series on today’s SportsCenter (video above).
The Celtics, of course, have cut a 3-0 series against the Knicks to 3-2, with Game 6 on tap for Friday at TD Garden.
“Theres no way both teams aren’t going out on the floor for Game 6 knowing exactly what we’re all thinking,” Schilling said. “New York is saying 'Oh my God, we cannot choke this away’, and Boston’s like ‘Wow this would be fun.’ And they’re two completely different mindsets, not to mention they make you different physically and that’s a big deal.”
His message for the Celtics?
“Just focus, focus on the trip up the court, nothing more. Nothing but that trip down the floor matters, and you do it one at a time.”
And his message for the Knicks?
“Good luck golfing this [summer].”
