2011 NBA Playoffs: 4 Things the New York Knicks Should Learn from Game 1

After losing Game 1 of their first round series against the Boston Celtics on Sunday night, 87-85, the New York Knicks will look to regroup in time for Game 2 - which will be played on Tuesday night at 7:00pm EST.

However, if the Knicks want to extend this series - much less win it - they must learn on the fly and turn every mistake into a learning experience.

After losing a game in which they led for its majority, Coach Mike D'Antoni needs to ensure that his team is ready for Game 2. In order to be ready, they need to be wiser.

But the wisdom will only come if they can ascertain what went wrong in Game 1, and figure out how to prevent the same blunders from costing them Game 2.
