Celtics get big stop from Allen, hold off Knicks


By Couper Moorhead, for NBA.com

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- The talk before the Boston Celtics' 110-106 victory over the New York Knicks was of the trade the two teams had completed just days prior, exchanging Nate Robinson for Bill Walker, an injured J.R. Giddens and fan favorite Eddie House.

The talk, among media and fans, was so strong -- following a pre-game press conference introducing Robinson to the media -- in fact that it appeared as though there were only two or three players that actually mattered. Alas, the storylines didn't pan out as the three healthy players combined for 15 points and 7-for-19 shooting, their greatest impact coming from a pair of standing ovations for those coming and going.

The game itself was a strange affair in which the Celtics looked as confident and energetic as they have since 2010 began and yet couldn't defend against an average Knicks offense.

"We couldn't get a stop tonight," Kevin Garnett said. "David Lee on the pick and pop, that was the hardest thing for us."

Lee had his way with Boston, dropping 28 points and 15 boards as he took advantage of consistently late defensive rotations. Even the play of the game, for the Celtics, spawned from slow help defense.

With 48.9 seconds remaining and the Celtics leading by three, the Knicks, swiftly moving the ball as they did for much of the night, found Wilson Chandler streaking to the basket. A Celtics player was supposed to be there to take a charge, but the defense was over-rotated. The crowd groaned, expecting the lead to shrink to one, but then came Ray Allen soaring across the lane, he of the 0.3 blocks per game average, to swipe Chandler's attempt away as the shot clock expired.

"That's unexpected," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "But that was great. He just said he was a step late, so he had to try and make a play on the ball."

The block was the highlight but Allen's 24-point, smooth-shooting night was a confirmation that he had shed whatever weight that had him mired in a slump for most of the year. Since the NBA trade deadline passed last Thursday, Allen is scoring 23 points per game, shooting exactly 9-for-14 in all three contests.

"I think since all the [trade] talk and everything sort of died down, it certainly tends to be a lot more relaxed," Garnett said. "At this point Ray Allen is letting a lot of things come to him."

"I never really worried about it because I couldn't. My job was where it was right here," Allen said.

Boston handed the Knicks one last opportunity with a turnover from Marquis Daniels, who otherwise made a seamless transition to the starting lineup with 14 points in place of Paul Pierce. Though the ensuing play was designed to get House a three in the corner, the Knicks still put the ball in Tracy McGrady's (eight assists) hands off the inbounds. The three fell short and the game was Boston's.

"I'm still just trying to get my timing and rhythm back," McGrady said. "Even when I took that shot I really wasn't that confident taking it. Guys I'm playing against, they have almost a full season on me. I'm still trying to play my way into shape."

The other newcomers to these two teams were just trying to play their way into fresh roles. For House, who essentially has the same duty of catching and shooting wherever he lands, being on the visitor's bench was, as he said, no big deal. But the loss was.

"It's hard, just losing," House said. "That's the hard thing. I'm not used to losing. I haven't been on a losing team in quite a long time."

For Robinson, who hasn't won more than 33 games in a season since entering the league in 2005-06, the opposite was true. As Rivers -- who admitted he didn't know how to use Robinson's skills yet -- experimented with some lineups featuring both Rajon Rondo and Robinson, the new guy looked like exactly what he is: someone trying to find their way.

"Today, he was going too fast," Rivers said. "But he's fast, and you have to figure out how to use it."
