The Celtics have come to life the past two games and the series against the Knicks has come to life. Led by veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce the Celtics defeated the Knicks 92-86 at Madison Square Garden, but also received key contributions from guys like Brandon Bass and Jeff Green who finished with 18 points, 10 of which came in the fourth quarter.
Bass had 17 points and 5 rebounds, but more importantly, played some tough defense on New York’s Carmelo Anthony. Bass limited the Knicks’ forward’s impact – Anthony finished the game with 22 points on 8/24 shooting from the field.
After the game both Bass and Green spoke at the podium on the Celtics win, and the series moving forward.
