Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks: Postgame Grades and Analysis

Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks are headed to Beantown with a 2-0 series lead over the Boston Celtics.

New York defeated Boston in Game 2 of their best-of-seven series 87-71 in a game that was much closer than the score suggests.

The Knicks took a six-point lead into the second quarter, but the Celtics outscored them by 12 in the second to take a six-point lead of their own into halftime.

'Melo and the Knicks came out firing in the third, though. They outscored the Celtics 32-11 and brought a 15-point lead into the fourth. Boston managed to trim the deficit to single digits early on in the final period, but New York was able to pull away.

It was a game once again dominated by runs. The Celtics had theirs, but the Knicks had more. And that made all difference.
