C’s Stun Knicks in OT, Knicks Miss Sweep!

New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

“As far as J.R. goes, we missed him, I missed him,’’ Anthony said. “But J.R. not being out there didn’t change how I shot the basketball today. Those shots I’ve taken all series. They weren’t falling tonight. My mama always said there were [going to be] days like this.’’

“I was trying to win the basketball game,’’ Anthony said. “It would’ve been a great feeling to close it out in Boston. I was trying to do whatever I could to win the basketball game. I was trying to be aggressive. I missed a ton of shots. I didn’t shoot the ball. Defensively we were still there.

“We look forward to Wednesday, I’ll tell you that.’’ – nypost
