Celtics rally, send Knicks to sixth straight loss

Celtics rally, send Knicks to sixth straight loss

"Like I said, we got our ass whooped in Toronto, and sometimes that's going to happen to the best of them, doesn't matter who you are".

It wasn't "Why aren't they winning games?" or "When is Julius Randal going to post up more than three times in a contest?" or even "Is R.J. Barrett going to get exhausted out from playing so many minutes a game?"

Brown's bucket with 1:39 left gave Boston its biggest lead of the game, 110-99.

When the Knicks are 4-15 through roughly the first quarter of the season, destined for the lottery yet again, it is foolish for them to not be letting this young man develop on the court.

Still, head coach David Fizdale believes that there have been notable improvements during the latest 10-game stretch, despite that fact that the team has just two wins during that time frame.

"We played better basketball", Fizdale told SNY after Saturday's practice session. "We came out in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter, and lifted our energy a bit to pull out the win".

Julius Randle scored 26 points for the Knicks, who received 17 points from Dennis Smith Jr., 16 points from RJ Barrett, 11 points from Kevin Knox II and 10 points from Damyean Dotson.

Two-day death toll in Syria's Idlib nears 100 - war monitor
Air strikes on Sunday afternoon hit rebel areas dozens of kilometres from the main front lines, signalling a potential escalation. At least 36 regime forces were among those killed.

Celtics: Other than a 14-point loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in the season opener, every other Boston defeat this season has been by five points or less.

New York's next game will take place on Monday night when they travel to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks. Tip-off will occur at 8:00 p.m. ET. The Knicks have not beaten the Celtics since November 21, 2018, and have not defeated them at Madison Square Garden since December 21, 2017.

Over the team's first 10 games of the year, the Knicks went 2-8.

Jayson Tatum put the game out of reach after he hit a three pointer with 3:32 to go in the fourth.

Knicks: New York has lost five straight to Boston. New York's Marcus Morris had started the first 19 but missed Sunday's game with cervical spasms.

Smart has averaged 12.6 points and 4.9 assists so far this season in Boston, his sixth in the league. No one has recorded 10 dimes for the Knicks, with Barrett and Frank Ntilikina topping out at nine.
