Knicks avoid season sweep with win over Celtics at MSG

NEW YORK (NBA.com exclusive) -- Danilo Gallinari didn't call his game-winning jumper off the window, but he'll take it nonetheless.

With the Knicks trailing the Celtics by one point and 36.8 seconds remaining, Gallinari drained a basket that caromed off the backboard and through the net for an apparent 3-pointer, triggering a roar of approval from the fans.

After a review by the officials, it was called a 2-point basket, giving the Knicks a one-point lead. David Lee added a lean-in layup with 7.3 seconds left and the Celtics failed to get a shot off on their last possession as the Knicks downed Boston, 104-101, before a Madison Square Garden crowd of 19,763 that included John McEnroe, Charles Oakley and Bernard King.

"When I shot it, I thought it was a little bit long but not that long, but I'll take it," said Gallinari, who poured in a career-high 31 points on 10-of-15 shooting as the Knicks (28-49) beat the Celtics (48-29) for the first time in four tries this season.

Gallinari scored 19 points in the third quarter when the Knicks outscored the Celtics 33-26 to go ahead 86-78, but he played just over four minutes in the fourth quarter, when Boston outscored New York, 23-8.

"The bank shot that Gallinari hit was the Basketball Gods punishing us for not having great focus," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "You can see their intensity. I just thought that we absolutely deserved that. I would have liked to win, but when you play with that kind of focus, you lose basketball games."

The Knicks rebounded from a 1-4 West Coast road swing and won despite dressing just nine players. Tracy McGrady (sore left knee) and Al Harrington (left ankle) were both injured.

After Gallinari's window shot, the Celtics called a timeout to set up a play but Chris Duhon (eight assists) intercepted a Paul Pierce pass underneath Boston's basket.

Duhon took the ball upcourt and fed Lee in the post for layup that extended the lead to 104-101.

After a 20-second timeout, Boston had one more chance to tie the game but Rajon Rondo held the ball too long on the wing before finally passing it to Rasheed Wallace on the top of the arc. Wallace fired up a meaningless 3-pointer but time had already expired.

Five Celtics scored in double-figures, led by Ray Allen's 17 points. Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins added 14 apiece.

"They wanted it more than we did," said Celtics guard Nate Robinson, who was dealt by the Knicks at the trading deadline and finished with five points in his Garden return.

Robinson was dealt because he and Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni clashed. Now in Boston, Robinson sat out the Celtics last game against Cleveland Sunday.

Of his return, Robinson, the three-time NBA Slam Dunk contest winner said: "It's always good to play in the Garden...it's the Mecca. Unfortunately, we didn't get the win but we just have to look forward to our next game."

While Robinson is now part of the Knicks' past, 7-footer Earl Barron is very much a part of their present...and possibly their future.

Making his first NBA start in two years, Barron started at center, allowing Lee to slide to the power forward position, and delivered 17 points and a career-high 18 rebounds.

Lee added a double-double of 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Sergio Rodriguez (14 points) and Toney Douglas (10 points, four assists) both played well off the bench for the Knicks.

But it was Barron who was the newest sensation. After stints in Turkey, the Philippines and with four NBA D-League outfits, he went 8-of-13 from the field, flashing a nice 15-foot jumper.

He also grabbed eight offensive boards as the Knicks dominated, 15-5, on the offensive glass.

"I've been in the D-League this whole year," said Barron, who signed with the Knicks Friday and confessed he didn't even know the Celtics were on the schedule until a couple of days ago.

"I've been waiting for the opportunity, just trying to take advantage while I can. It's great. They are a tough team, one of the best teams in the league. Beating them undermanned, shorthanded, whatever you want to call it. We pulled it out, everybody stepped up, gave it their all and we got the win."

Barron instantly impressed head coach Mike D'Antoni and his teammates.

"It's great," D'Antoni said. "He gives us that length and athleticism we need inside. Obviously, he's making open jump shots and his rotations are good. He's a smart player and good guy. He just fills a lot of needs and he's playing extremely well. Hopefully, he can keep it going."
