The Knicks came into TDGarden and kept the Celtics road wounds open to fester and spill out all over the parquet.
Without Kevin Garnett, the Celtics had no chance on the glass. Without Courtney Lee, the Celtics had to rely on the combination of Jordan Crawford, Terrence Williams, and Avery Bradley to defend JR Smith.
Their efforts proved fruitless as Smith completely torched the C’s, scoring 32 points on a shad over 50% shooting. It’s hard to win when an offensively player like Smith has it going like that.
Grades to come…
