GAME RECAP: Knicks 116, Celtics 92

No Kenyon? No Tyson? No Amar’e? No problem. Carmelo Anthony and the rest of his buddies packed up to Boston and took care of the Boston Celtics to win their fifth straight basketball game.

Yet, it’s really quite different, in spite of the teams being from the same cities. The… More
