Boston Celtics smash New York Knicks 111-81 for first preseason win

 

Good ball-handling, passing and shot selection...who are you and what have you done with Steez?

If the Celtics can convince opponents to play their third- and fourth-string players more often, Boston will be in good shape.

The Celtics used a fast-paced attack and a solid shooting performance (finally!) to blast the team claiming to be New York. Kelly Olynyk and Avery Bradley both put together excellent shooting nights, and Jordan Crawford continued to be a very pleasant surprise at point guard.

The damper on the parade, of course, was that the Knicks were clearly giving out opportunities at roster spots to some of the unguaranteed players. Instead of Carmelo Anthony, Boston faced Josh Powell at small forward. Instead of Tyson Chandler, the Celtics struggled with Ike Diogu. Metta World Peace, Raymond Felton, Beno Udrih, Kenyon Martin and JR Smith all received DNPs as well, and aside from Smith — who is recovering from surgery — they were simply held out by Mike Woodson.

That being said, the Celtics demonstrated a lot of positive things tonight, especially offensively. Like we’ve been saying from the outset: This team will struggle (at least against legitimate competition), but there are going to be a lot of things to like as well.

Full recap will be up tomorrow morning.

    Crawford always had this talentr, Doc was the one telling him to 'put it up' each time he had the ball.
