Celtics 103, Knicks 101: Scenes from a back-to-back heart-breaker

New, comments

Those green devils.

NBA: Boston Celtics at New York Knicks Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

Dammit.

The Knicks remain competitive — which is good! — but it also leads to repeated heartbreaks. This time it is the hated Celtics who barely walked away with a victory thanks to a timely shot and a last-second Knicks miss. Trey Burke was fouled on a three-point with seconds left and the Knicks down three, but he bricked the first free throw and the ‘Bockers couldn’t grab the rebound on the third. Your final is 103-101, Evil Green Bastards.

Tim Hardaway brought down his 30 PPG average just a tad, dropping 24 points on 8-21 shooting. He did hit five threes, however, including back-to-back triples which allowed the Knicks to pull even late in the fourth.

Noah Vonleh had a big game for New York, closing out as a power forward against the Celtics and putting together a line of 7 points, 13 rebounds and 3 assists.

Enes Kanter hit a three (!!!) but fouled out late on a very dubious call.
