– New York took a brief 66-65 lead with 10.2 seconds left after Barrett hit his second straight three. A Derrick White tip-in as time expired gave Boston a one-point lead going into halftime.

– After the break, the offenses kept up the up-tempo pace as both teams wouldn’t miss. The Celtics’ lead reached seven points but time and time again the Knicks had an answer.

– With 4:47 left in the quarter, Derrick Rose‘s three-pointer brought the Knicks to within 89-88 but after three quarters, New York trailed 101-96.

– The Knicks kept it within reach midway through the fourth quarter but a quick offensive spurt by the Celtics gave them an 11-point lead. New York brought it to within four points on Julius Randle‘s three-point play and just under five minutes to play.

– After that, Boston finished the game on a 17-6 run and won 133-118.
