Tonight at 10:30pm, immediately following MSG's coverage of the Knicks-Brooklyn Nets game, Episode 3 of “The Garden Transformed: Year Two,” a behind-the-scenes look at the second phase of Madison Square Garden’s historic, top-to-bottom transformation will debut. A new episode from the five-part series, which is voiced over by actor Billy Crudup, will run each night this week. Viewers will not only get a firsthand look at how the Arena’s upper bowl was gutted and rebuilt, but they will also hear from athletes and celebrities who called The Garden home,  as well as some of the 1,000 construction personnel who tirelessly worked on the beloved building.

Episode 3 features undisputed World Middleweight Champion Bernard Hopkins as he toured the transformed Arena this summer and talked to workers about his bout with Felix Trinidad at MSG, which was postponed by the events of September 11, 2001 and finally fought a few weeks later on September 29. He also took a few minutes to shadow box with a number of the construction workers.
