Glen Davis Expects ‘a Brawl’ Against the Knicks

by April 14, 2011

Big Baby says he and the Celtics are ready for a bloody Playoff scrap with the folks from Gotham. WEEI reports: “Glen Davis was all smiles after scoring 17 points in 27 minutes of Wednesday night’s season-ending laugher over the team they’ll be seeing in four days. But when these two teams meet against Sunday night, Davis is fully aware of how much different the atmosphere will be. ‘A brawl,’ Davis said. ‘We’re going to fight, especially here [in Boston]. We’re going to go there. Knicks-Boston rivalry, it’s going to be crazy. This is the series to watch. They’re going to be watching our series.’ Davis also said that immediately following the 112-102 win Wednesday that gave the Celtics a 56-26 mark for the season, he sat at his locker and thought back to Game 7 of the NBA finals last June when the Celtics came within six minutes of an 18th NBA title before running out of gas against the Lakers. ‘I’m excited man,’ Davis said. ‘The regular season is over with. Now it’s time for the postseason. This is what it’s all about. I was just sitting here thinking, ‘Wow, Game 7 I felt like was just yesterday.’ Now, we’re back [in playoffs again. I’m starting my campaign for champagne, trying to get No. 18.'”
