After a disappointing game three performance, the Celtics looked just about done. They pulled out all the stops on Sunday, and avoided elimination with a game four win. 

The Celtics had a lot of confidence after their dominant performance in the first half of game four. Boston had a 54-35 lead going into the half, and the New York Knicks best player, Carmelo Anthony was 3-15 on the floor. But as Celtics’ fans know, the second half is a whole different story.

In the second half the Knicks, who were really missing the suspended J.R. Smith, came out and immediately let the Celtics know why they were down 3-0. Carmelo Anthony started the heat up, but more importantly the Knicks other players started to step up. Raymond Felton had 27 points and Iman Shumpert would had 12 points, including a couple big threes to put the Knicks right back into the game.

While the Celtics struggled in the third, being outscored 30-14, in the fourth they were able to better contain New York, but the game ended up in overtime. Jason Terry would make sure that the Celtics would see a game five. He scored 9 of the Celtics 13 overtime points. Paul Pierce finished the day with 29 points, and Jeff Green had 26. Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 36 points.

Game five will be Wednesday night from Madison Square Garden in New York. Knicks lead 3-1.
