Knicks Celtics Playoffs

“It’s a wonderful feeling knowing we got our first win of the series here on our home court and took care of that business,’’ said Carmelo Anthony, who finished with 36 points, but lapsed into a deep shooting funk through the middle of the game.

“We played our best defense of the year in the second half,’’ catalyst Jason Kidd said. “We all have the belief and understanding championships are won playing defense. It wasn’t our best offensive night, but we stayed the course and got stops.’’ – nypost
