Carmelo Anthony Trip Dub Leads Knicks Past Celtics

35-12-10, that’s exactly what Carmelo Anthony delivered against the Boston Celtics tonight propelling the Knicks to a 118-110 win.

The New York Knicks just faced the Miami Heat the other night and losing a close game, they sure didn’t want to lose to the red-hot Celtics tonight.

Anthony once again led the way and played like the superstar he’s being paid for with a stunning triple-double, but it wasn’t all Melo this time. J.R. Smith and Steve Novak both poured in 25 points that negated Paul Pierce’s season-high 43, hitting 15/20 combined three-pointers.

The Knicks prevented Boston from clinching the Atlantic title tonight and threw a barrage of 14 three-pointers resulting to 72 points just in the first-half!

Tyson Chandler went toe-to-toe with a rejuvenated Kevin Garnett with 20 points while Rajon Rondo continues his double-digit assist streak with 13 assists.

Boston was once again without sharp-shooting Ray Allen as well as Mickael Pietrus.

New York lead Boston throughout the game particularly after the first half with their offensive barrage but Boston cut it down to 6 with 3 minutes left in the game. Then it was a dog-fight until the end.

Novak hit two dagger threes that put the Celtics away for good.
