Knicks Billups Out For Game Two Against Celtics Tonight

Billups out of Knicks 2nd game against Celtics

      BOSTON (AP) – Chauncey Billups is sidelined for the New York
Knicks in Game 2 of their playoff series with the Boston Celtics.
      Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni made the expected announcement before
Tuesday night's game and said he didn't know if the starting point
guard, who has a sore left knee, would be ready for Game 3 of the
best-of-seven, first-round series in New York on Friday night.
      D'Antoni said he had no plans to change the offense with
third-year pro Toney Douglas starting for Billups.
      Billups was hurt late in Boston's 87-85 victory Sunday night
when his leg buckled. He limped off the court with 51 seconds left
and didn't return. He didn't practice with the team on Monday.
