Celtics stay alive against Knicks, 3-2

leave a comment »

Down 3-1 in a pivotal Eastern quarterfinals playoff matchup, the Boston Celtics rose to the occasion in their defeat over New York Knicks 92-86. Starting off in a deficit 11-0 in the first quarter, the Celtics  outscored the Knicks 45-28 and held a four-point lead at halftime.

Carmelo Anthony, the NBA’s league leader in first quarter scoring, came out shooting “lights out” in the first half but when the Knicks needed him the most, he could not deliver. Without Anthony’s deliverance, the Knicks went through a 2nd half slump in their ability to score.

As a result of the Knicks inability to score, the Celtics took advantage and capitalized on their opportunities. Without start point guard, Rajon Rondo, this required the Celtics other role players to play more of an active role in the offense. In doing so, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry combined for nearly fifty points to put the Celtics over the edge in a close but desperately needed win to keep their chances of winning a NBA championship alive. Jeff Green led all Celtic scorers with 18 points, Brandon Bass with 17 points, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce each with 16 points and Jason Terry pitching in 17 points of the bench.

The Celtics will need another combined team effort to get another win in the series like they did tonight. On Friday, the Celtics will play game 6 of the series in Boston. The Knicks will need the Anthony as well as its other role players to step up to the challenge. If the Celtics can get a win, they would tie the series 3-3.

All in all, no team in NBA history has rallied from a 3-0 deficit to come back to win the series, but Celtics have these plans on their mind.

Privacy Laws & Street Photography

Protecting Privacy, Limiting Street Photography

This was a very interesting read. This article talks about the right to people’s privacy and photographers taking pictures in public places. Nick Turpin says, “I believe that what happens in a public place should be a matter of public record, as is the case in the United Kingdom…”

Some people believe that if you’re going to photograph someone, you should ask their permission. However, that really alters the context for the photo; something that photographers do not want to do.

There are some places that have laws in place, like Article 9 in France, that states everyone has a right to their private life. That is conflicting with photographers who take pictures of people in public. People view photographers as suspicious.

The article says, “Ms. Filippetti argued that it was unacceptable to prevent professional photographers from sharing their vision of the world with future generations.”

“Without them, our society doesn’t have a face,” she said. “Because of this law, we run the risk of losing our memory.”

I completely agree with Filippetti. Photography is a source of remembrance in today’s society; pictures tell a story in their own way and bring back the past. If people try to limit that, we may lose moments that could have been preserved through a photo lens. Photography is an important storytelling method.

Vintage PSAs

I thought these few short Public Service Announcement videos were very interesting because they show how far we’ve come both in multimedia as well as socially. This video is just one example. If you click the link above, there are lots more.

It’s hard to believe some of the things they said in a few of these, and I guess ’10 Terrible Vintage PSAs That Should Stay in the Past’ is an adequate title for this article.
