The shorthanded New York Knicks (resting Carmelo Anthony) defeated the shorthanded Boston Celtics (resting Avery Bradley, Al Horford, Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder) by a score of 121-96. Don’t care don’t care don’t care ... NY >>> BOS!
New York put the game away for good at the start of the third period, as Courtney Lee decided he’d had enough of the Celtics. Personally, I don’t blame him.
Kristaps Porzingis went off from the opening tip, dropping 20 points on 7-13 shooting to go along with 3 rebounds, 2 steals and 3 blocks. He did his work close to the bucket:
It was a big night for the maligned ‘Bockers, as Kyle O’Quinn played by far his best game of the preseason: 13 points on 6-9 shooting, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 block.
Sasha Vujacic continued to make his case for the roster (seriously) with 13 points, 4 assists and no turnovers. He even finished in traffic!
Recap to come. Screw the Celtics.
