The Knicks continue their winning streak after defeating the Celtics with relative ease. As a result of the loss, the Celtics gave up their position as the best team in the league to the Bucks.
What exactly occurred
The most of this season, the Boston Celtics have been widely considered the most incredible team in the NBA. They have a response ready for almost any squad that has attempted to challenge them. The New York Knicks are the only club the Boston Celtics have yet to find out how to beat this season.
In their most recent contest, the Knicks defeated the Celtics in the fourth quarter and overtime to take home the victory. The game they played against each other today wasn’t close at all. The Knicks could coast to an easy victory while playing in front of their home fans by handily defeating the top club in the league.
The Celtics got a quick start and took a 3-0 lead in the contest. It would be the most significant benefit that Boston could have in the game. After then, the Knicks were able to put an end to the Celtics’ momentum. New York had an early lead of more than ten points after holding their opponent to 15 points in the first quarter. They could extend that lead to as much as 20 points by the middle of the second quarter and keep the Celtics at bay until the game’s conclusion.
The Knicks just destroyed the Celtics for the whole game. As things went so badly for Boston, a visibly furious Jayson Tatum was removed from the game late in the fourth quarter. This effectively ended any hope the Celtics had of stealing the victory from the Cavaliers.
Julius Randle and Immanuel Quickley led the way for the Knicks with 23 points each to lead the six other Knicks who scored in double digits. Jalen Brunson contributed 17 points, while Josh Hart, who came off the bench, scored 12 points. The Knicks were able to stifle the high-powered offense of the Celtics, holding them to just 44 percent shooting from the field and 21.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc.
The Celtics entered Madison Square Arena as their respective division’s top team in the NBA. After another defeat at the hands of the Knicks, they are dethroned from the top position in the rankings and replaced by the Milwaukee Bucks. With their sixth consecutive victory, the New York Knicks are strengthening their position as a playoff team and moving closer to clinching a spot.
What he had to say
Since it has been so long since the Knicks have been this good, most basketball fans have forgotten what the atmosphere is like inside Madison Square Garden when the fans are getting into it.
Tracy Morgan, an avid New York Knicks fan, has a single phrase to describe the atmosphere inside The Garden when the team is on a winning streak.
This must have been the stadium vibe when the Knicks dominated the Celtics earlier today.
The “award” for Big-time baller is often given to Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid whenever the team competes. Yet, not today. Jimmy Butler was the one who had the most significant impact in today’s game, even though the big man for the Sixers scored 27 points, which was the most of any player.
Butler came close to recording a triple-double by scoring 23 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and dishing out nine assists. He gave the team all he had today to guide them to a decisive victory…
In most cases, a jump shot or a drive on a direct line to the basket will result in a clutch basket. When the going gets tough, and a lot is riding on the outcome, players often become risk-conservative and resort to strategies they know will work.
But not Butler at all. He conjured up a bucket out of thin air since he couldn’t get a good shot off the hoop. Because of this, people often refer to him as Jimmy Buckets.
