I went to the game and it was probably the best game I've been to. The other games I've been to with electric atmosphere we always end up losing. It was amazing really.
There was quite a bit of Knicks fans. Maybe 15-20%.
In my section there were so many of them Like a good 40+. All drunk and wearing Knicks colours. One guy got so drunk the police had to remove him. Later in the game the Knicks fans started chanting "Raptors suck" and were told to stop by the attendant. Other fans also yelled at them to stop and that it wasn't allowed.
It was as packed as I've seen the ACC. Maybe more so than with Heat or Lakers games. The first time AB was introduced it was out of a timeout and it wasn't announced over the PA. Everyone was disappointed as we wanted to boo him. However as soon as he touched the ball the boos started. He was pretty awful all game even by his standards. You could hear fans picking away at his play and defense. At his stat line. They were excited when he finally got his first"1" which was a foul. Everything else read 0 and he really didn't do anything out there. Not fighting for position and rebounds. Not doing much of offense besides hanging around the 3 pt line either.
In the 3rd he played again and we all booed. I was surprised at how unanimous it was. The vast majority were booing him. Melo was good but Casey's rotations really baffled me. AA and Fields were guarding Melo most of the time instead of Gay. Not sure why especially since it wasn't like Rudy was in foul trouble. Also when the Knicks went on the run in the 4th, I'm not sure why Lowry wasn't brought in till the 6 min mark?
The end was really fun. The crowd was so loud. Everyone on their feet and cheering so much. Great game! Was my B'day present too!
