New York Knicks forward Michael Beasley dropped a season-high 32 points in Thursday's 102-93 win over the Boston Celtics at Madison Square Garden. 

Along with being the only New York player to tally over 14 points, Beasley completed a double-double by accumulating 12 rebounds, another season-best. He shot 13-of-20 from the field and drained five of six free throws. 

With under 1:10 left in the contest, Beasley's jumper from the left portion of the paint served as a dagger that increased New York's lead to 99-91. 

Home fans chanted "M-V-P!" in several instances in appreciation of the 28-year-old who has become an imposing offensive weapon since notching 30 points in the Dec. 16 111-96 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Update: Beasley told reporters after the game that he's been hot since day one:
