Knicks Snap Skid with Win Over Boston

Knicks Snap Skid with Win Over Boston

Steve Russell/Toronto Star via Getty Images(BOSTON, Mass.) -- The New York Knicks finally snapped a 10-game losing streak on Friday night, defeating the Boston Celtics 101-95 on the road. It was the first win for New York (5-20) since beating Philadelphia back on Nov. 22 at Madison Square Garden.

"It's always hard when you're climbing uphill, then you get that one game like today. It's kind of like relief," Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony said. "It gives you a chance to feel what winning a basketball game is like."

Anthony cause some headlines, before leading his team with 22 points, when rumors swirled that the forward would be willing to waive his no-trade clause if the right situation presented itself. The 30-year-old told reporters before the game that those were just rumors. Anthony shot 9-for-20 in the win, pulling down five rebounds and blocking three shots.

New York opened the game shooting well, holding a 26-19 lead after the first quarter, while their defense helped set the tone. The Knicks held Boston (7-14) to just 7-of-22 from three-point land and forced 17 total turnovers.

The win snapped the longest losing streak for the Knicks since 2005-06 when they also dropped 10 in a row.

Smart Carted Off in Celtics Win

Smart Carted Off in Celtics Win

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Celtics guard Marcus Smart was carted off the court Friday night after injuring his left ankle in the fourth quarter of Boston's 101-98 win over Indiana.

The rookie appeared to step on the Pacers Lavoy Allen and immediately went to the floor, clutching his left ankle. Team doctors rushed to his side before calling for a stretcher. His leg was immobilized and he was carted off the court, giving a thumbs up as he departed.

"It was really scary and then, obviously, he was writhing in pain, so that makes it even more scary," coach Brad Stevens said. "We're hoping it's a sprain, but we don't know that. So obviously a great deal of concern for him, No. 1. And hopefully he can get back sooner rather than later because he's really playing great basketball."

Smart was the 6th overall pick by the Celtics in this year's NBA draft and was averaging 7.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in the first four games of the season. Five players scored in double figures for Boston who improved to 2-3 while the Pacers dropped to 1-5 on the young season.
