NEW YORK – The Boston Celtics demolished the New York Knicks, 114-73, behind a game-high 23 points from Jordan Crawford at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
The Atlantic Division-leading Celtics (10-12) ran wire-to-wire for the win over a Knicks squad (5-14) that was going for its first three-game winning streak of the season. Instead, Boston picked up its third victory in a row to extend a divisional lead in a game the Knicks trailed by many as 27 points in the first half, including a 23-3 deficit in the first quarter.
When Ray Allen left the Boston Celtics in 2012 to join the Miami Heat, certain members of the C's spoke out against him fleeing the team. Now that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Doc Rivers have left Boston themselves, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade think they were hypocritical in calling out Ray.
