After a very rocky start, the Boston Celtics battled back and made game six a real challenge for the Knicks toe close out in Boston. 

The New York Knicks absolutely dominated the Boston Celtics for  three-and-a-half quarters of basketball. The Celtics couldn’t shoot in the first half, and the Knicks weren’t so hot either, but were able to capitalize on Celtics turnovers.

But as things go with Boston, the dramatics had to come out at some point. After being down by 20 points in the fourth quarter the Celtics came to life. Jeff Green had 21 points, and Kevin Garnett had 15 and 10 boards. The Celtics got the lead down to seven points, and went on a 19-0 run.

The Knicks had to rethink their attack, and slowed things down. They were able to put more space between themselves and the Celtics and get to the foul line. Iman Shumpert had a big game with 17 points, and Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 21. New York wins the series 4-2, and it wasn’t made easy for them.
