Well, that was a fitting end to this work week, wouldn’t you say? The Knicks kinda stayed with the Celtics through three quarters despite Carmelo Anthony getting ejected in the second. Brandon Jennings would later follow him out the door with a fourth-quarter ejection, while Kristaps Porzingis, Joakim Noah picked up a technical foul each. It was nasty.
Anyway, the game more or less fell apart down the stretch. The Celtics clutched, grabbed and hustled the Knicks into a tizzy in a poorly-officiated affair. Your final: Celtics 115, Knicks 87.
The highlights from this game mainly came from Willy Hernangomez, who did a little bit of everything in the second quarter.
Melo started the game on fire, so naturally he wound up tossed out soon after:
Justin Holiday also had some good run early.
And that’s pretty much it. Pretty classic Knicks-Celtics game — in other words, it was horrible and I wish I could purge it from my brain.
