Knicks vs Pistons

I was unbelievably lucky to pick the best game to go to. It ended in tripple OT and the Knicks won. Additionally Rip Hamilton had a new career high with 51 points.
The atmosphere was very intense and since it was my first NBA game i saw live in an arena it was even more special.
Here's a short clip from the game:

The seats were great, as you can see and the beer was very expensive but bad...but i didn't expect anything else. People started chanting for the Knicks very shortly after the tip-off already and I was completely into it.
Here are a few shots from warm-up:

The Knicks started by getting the ball down low, very good strategy I might add ;), and Eddy Curry battled his way to the rim, made the contact, the bucket and got the foul. He didn't hit the FT, but he would on his next possession, were exactlly the same thing happened. Pistons couldn't contain him and eventually he went on to score 33 points with 11/15 FTs...
The biggest game of the night came from Rip Hamilton who raised his career high to 51 points. And it was relly great to be able to watch him the whole time. On TV it's sometimes hard to see everything going on, but when you're right there it's just incredible. I would go so far to say he's easily the best man to come off the block. This statement is probably nothing new to the most of you, but to actually experience it that way.....woohoooo!
some shots from the game:

I am a little sad that I don't have any more pics from the game, or a longer video but my camera fell down during the game and i lost my batteries in the process....they rolled somewhere and I couldn't find them anymore.
ah and by the way....my girlfriend who was with me, listened to Harry Potter Audiobook during the game, and slept for minutes on my shoulder....seems like not everyone appreciates a good game :(
