NBA – Knicks lose a tough one; fall to the Celtics at the Garden


PhilBoxing.com




NEW YORK – The Celtics have over the past few seasons dominated the Atlantic Division and the Knicks. This year the tables are turned. Boston is looking up to the Knicks.
 

  There is always a lot of passion and physicality whenever these erstwhile rivals meet. Tonight was no exception.
 
  Carmelo Anthony, it seems was affected by Boston’s stingy defense as he could not get into the flow of the game, committing two early fouls while engaging in a physical and verbal tussle with Celtic starting Center Kevin Garnett.
 
  The Knicks were paced by JR Smith with 24 points, four assists while grabbing three rebounds. Carmelo Anthony had a woeful 6-25 shooting night although he managed to chip in a total of 20 points.
 
  New York, though, still paces the Atlantic Division with a 23-11 record, Boston meanwhile broke.500 at 17-17 in the Win-loss column.
 
  Playing without starter Rajon Rondo who leads the league in assists, the Celtics bench totally outplayed their Knick counterparts led by Jeff Green and Avery Bradley who scored 16 and 13 points respectively.

New York threatened to pull away, early in the first quarter, but Paul Pierce singlehandedly carried Boston all throughout the game finishing with 23 points along with six assists followed by Kevin Garnett’s 19 points and dominated the boards grabbing 10 caroms.

"We've still got a long road ahead of us,". "But I like the position we're sitting in as we speak. You win your division you open up first round here at home and you start that playoff run. I mean, that's what it's all about." Coach Mike Woodson was quoted by Newsday.com.
 
  It was a grind-it-out, hard fought, intense contest all the way with play-off like implications, with Boston prevailing at the buzzer, 102-96. (Reynaldo Seno)
