Boston
New York

[NEW YORK] — The New York Knicks played host to the Boston Celtics last night but don't think that the home cooking gave them any sort of advantage. The 94-110 loss has the Knicks and their fans cringing as they brace for their next opportunity to redeem themselves. The loss bumps New York's record down to 29-48 on the season, while the victory gives Boston a 50-27 total on the year. Disappointing from the opening tip, the Knicks did little to convince anyone that they deserved anything more than a big fat L in this one. Suffice it to say, they'll have plenty to talk about over the next few days.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Isaiah Thomas's 19 points, 2 rebounds, 6 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 24 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Most importantly, the Celtics managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Thomas keeps producing at this rate and Boston keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though New York didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Courtney Lee did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 16 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Knicks can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though New York wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Washington Wizards. The Celtics, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Atlanta Hawks.
