The Knicks mounted a rally in the final moments, but they ran out of time as the Celtics held on to win, 103-101. >> Box Score
Things you need to know about tonight's game...
1) Every time the Knicks fell behind, they stormed back -- and that's exactly what happened in the final quarter when they scored 31 points. Trey Burke made a layup with 10 seconds remaining to trim Boston's lead to one point, but Jayson Tatum subsequently hit both of his free throws to put the Celtics ahead for good.
2) Knicks rookie F Kevin Knox had to leave the game with what turned out to be a sprained left ankle. X-rays came back negative, but he will likely undergo an MRI in the near future to determine any further damage. The 19-year-old suffered the injury running in transition. He needed to be helped off the court.
3) Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 24 points, 15 of which came via three-point shots, in more than 37 minutes of action on Saturday night. Enes Kanter added 17 points and 15 rebounds before fouling out, and Allonzo Trier scored 15. Noah Vonleh was right behind Kanter with 13 rebounds.
4) Trey Burke missed all four of his shots from behind the arc, but still managed to score eight points to go along with nine assists.
