Celtics 121, Knicks 112: Scenes from a respectable loss

Some good things.

NBA: Boston Celtics at New York Knicks Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Well that was a quality loss, I guess. The New York Knicks battled the Boston Celtics until the bitter end, but couldn’t overcome Kyrie Irving and the rest of those green turds. Your final score is 121-112.

Troy Williams got his second stint as a Knick, first at home, and he sent the MSG crowd into fits of ecstasy with this put-back slam.

Williams ended up with 14 points on a handful of acrobatic plays at the rim. Kid might just be something.

Frank Ntilikina once again didn’t play any point guard, but once again looked strong, with 8 points, 5 rebounds and a plus-4 rating in the loss.

But once again, the main catalyst on the night for New York was diminutive point guard Trey Burke, who ripped through the alleged No. 1 defense in the NBA to the tune of 26 points and 8 assists.

There goes that man
