Knicks Routed By Celtics
The Boston Celtics posted the most lopsided victory of the season in the NBA against the New York Knicks 114-73 on Sunday.
Jordan Crawford had 23 points for Boston who dominated play for the entire game. Jared Sullinger added 21.
The Celtics led by 27 at the half and by 36 by the end of the third quarter. The Knicks were booed off the court at the final buzzer.
The 41 point margin of defeat is the largest in the NBA so far this season and the lowest point for the collapsing Knicks on the year.
"I'm not happy about how we played. And shouldn't nobody in that locker room, or our fans, be happy about what they saw tonight," Knicks head coach Mike Woodson said. "I wish I could explain it. I didn't see this coming in terms of how we played."
New York falls to 5-14 on the year and head to Cleveland on Tuesday for a matchup with the Cavaliers.
