And the trash talk continues! Sorry Jason Terry, but after tomorrow night – you’re finished!!! #KNICKS!!! #KnicksTape #GoNYGoNYGo
Yesterday Kenyon Martin addressed Jason Terry’s trash talk from game 4 – today JR Smith chimed in about missing game 4 and took a jab at Terry  & then Terry of course responded back to Kenyon’s funeral talk.
Who need soaps when you have the NBA playoffs?!  Details after the jump…




J.R. Smith thinks the New York Knicks would have swept the Boston Celtics if he had been playing in Game 4 of the division rivals’ playoff series.

“Oh yeah, it would’ve been over,” Smith said after Tuesday’s practice. “I’d have been playing golf today.”

The NBA suspended Smith for Game 4 after the star guard threw an elbow at Jason Terry’s chin late in Game 3.

Smith watched on television Sunday as the Celtics defeated the Knicks 97-90 in overtime to avoid elimination and extend the series. Smith also watched Terry score nine points in overtime.

Asked about Terry on Tuesday, Smith said, “Who? I don’t even know who that is.”

Not one to avoid a verbal sparring session, Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry responded to Kenyon Martin’s claim that the New York Knicks should wear “funeral colors” to Wednesday night’s Game 5 – an obvious reference to the fact that Martin expects New York to end the series.

“I thought they wore that last game, too,” Terry said before Tuesday’s practice. “For us, it doesn’t change. Whether they wear white, pink, blue, black, green, it’s Game 7 for us. So, we know what mindset we have to be in. You lose, you’re going home.”

Terry indicated he doesn’t expect to play any differently Wednesday because of J.R. Smith’s return. The Knicks wing served a one-game suspension in Game 4 for elbowing Terry in the face.

“We really don’t care how they’re going to be,” said Terry. “It’s more about us and how we approach the game. Whoever’s in uniform for them, so be it. We have to come out – again, it’s (like) Game 7. It’s every possession, it’s every shot, every defensive stop. It means that much. If you come in with that approach, you’re going to put yourself in a position to win.”

“I’m just feeding off the fact that I don’t want to go home right now,” he added. “I feel like we have a lot of basketball left with this particular group. If we win, we get another opportunity to come back here and play another game.”
