Playing to keep their postseason alive, the Boston Celtics chalked up an impressive win on the road to the New York Knicks in Game 5 on Wednesday night.

Led by Kevin Garnett's 16 points and 18 rebounds as well as Jeff Green's 18 points, the Celtics finished all over the struggling Knicks—who had gotten off to a very fast start and led by double digits early in the first quarter before Boston started to find their groove.

Carmelo Anthony top-scored for the Knicks with 22 points.

The first-round series will now head back to Boston for Game 6 where the Celtics will try and force an unlikely Game 7 against the Eastern Conference's No. 2 seed.

Boston lost the first three games of this series against the Knicks, and is looking to become the first ever team to win a best-of-seven series after being three games down—something that Celtics coach Doc Rivers has his players believing they can achieve.

Game 6 is scheduled for Friday, May 3.
