Celtics Hand Knicks 2 Losses In Six Days (90-86)
The Atlantic Division 1st place Boston Celtics came into this game against the New York Knicks on a two game skid losing to the Nets and Clippers back to back. The Celtics thought they would be able to get back on track with the visiting Knicks coming in after they completely dominated them on Sunday in Madison Square Garden 113-73. The Celtics did just that playing off the great game from Jared Sullinger 19 points 6 rebounds and Courtney Lee he was hitting every shot when he needed too. Courtney has been struggling as of late and it was good to see him find his shooting stroke scoring 18 on (6-8) shooting from the field. The Celtics were clicking at all cylinders as they shot 49 % from the field as a team and they also out rebounded the Knicks 42-28 which showed that they were a big presence in the paint.
Carmelo Anthony had 26 points and was stopped but it was the game of Bargnani with 22 points,7rebounds,4 assists and Stoudemire’s efforts with 18points that had the Knicks even close in this game as JR Smith and Shumpert are still struggling bad from the field and haven’t found their game at all this season.
