National Basketball Association Game Capsules
(Sunday, December 8th)
Final Score: Boston 114, New York 73
New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Knicks may want to consider boycotting future Sunday noon tip-offs. Jordan Crawford led six Boston players in double figures with 23 points and the Celtics pounded the Knicks, 114-73, at Madison Square Garden. Jared Sullinger scored 21 points and Brandon Bass and Jeff Green both supplied 16 points for Boston, which got off to a quick start and cruised to its third straight win. Avery Bradley added a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds. Carmelo Anthony had 19 points to pace the Knicks, who were undone by a horrific first quarter in which they were outscored 34-11. New York, which had won two straight on the heels of a nine-game slide, were sluggish in a 120-89 beatdown by visiting San Antonio on November 10, another Sunday contest that started at noon.
