Five straight!

That'll do, Knicks. The Knicks were shorthanded and short against the Celtics Wednesday night, so they used their diminutiveness as an advantage. Carmelo Anthony's maneuvering past bigger defenders and widespread driving and kicking opened up numerous uncontested threes and the Knicks just hit all of them. Well, at least early on. Melo, Tim Hardaway Jr., and the rest of 'em all started hot, cookin' a big pot of soup together until the Knicks were up double-digits.

The shot selection and accuracy flagged later on, and the Celtics got flurries of buckets from Jeff Green. The lead never shrunk below nine, though, and a couple quick buckets to start the fourth brought garbage time in early.

In closing: 1. COLE WOOOOOOOOOORLD DOUBLE DOUBLE FUTURE ALL-STAR ALDRICHSANITY. 2. 5-GAME WIN STREAK KNICKS ARE UNSTOPPABLEEEEEEEE

Quick recap later or in the morning. <3
