Knicks-Celtics notebook

THE FACTS: Ray Allen hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 11 seconds remaining, as the Boston Celtics survived a frantic finish to defeat the New York Knicks 87-85 and take a 1-0 series lead. Allen scored 18 of his team-high 24 points during the second half of the win, as Boston fought back from a 12-point halftime deficit for the gritty comeback victory. The Knicks had a chance to respond in the final seconds, but Carmelo Anthony missed a 3-point attempt as time expired. Amar'e Stoudemire was the bright spot for New York in the defeat, as he showed no lingering effects from his sprained ankle while pouring in a game-high 28 points along with 11 rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "It's a play that has so many options, and tonight I was just the option. If I could think of every shot I hit to win a game in a Celtic uniform, Paul [Pierce] has probably been the guy who has passed it to me every time."
-Allen on the game-winning sequence.

THE STAT: On an off-shooting night, Boston hit the offensive glass uncharacteristically hard. The C's grabbed 15 offensive rebounds overall, a season-high mark for them this year during a contest. The extra opportunities led to 19 crucial second-chance points.

TURNING POINT: Before Allen's clutch trey, the Knicks had a chance to put the game away with the ball and a two-point lead with 20 seconds remaining. As Anthony battled with Pierce for position on the wing though, he was whistled for an offensive foul, which opened the door for Boston on their ensuing possession.

QUOTABLE II: "I just thought defensively we joined the playoffs in the second half."
-Boston coach Doc Rivers

HOT: Stoudemire -- The All-Star power forward lived up to expectations in his first playoff game in the Eastern Conference. Stoudemire scored 12 of New York's 21 points in the final frame, going six-of-seven from the field to keep the Knicks in the game late.

NOT: Anthony -- New York's prized midseason pick-up struggled mightily in the second half against Boston's vaunted defense. The former Nugget missed 10 of his 11 shots after halftime, and tallied just three of his 15 points over the final 24 minutes, as the Knicks could only muster 34 second-half points overall.

QUOTABLE III: "We knew that coming into this series, it's been like this every game between these teams this year. We did play extremely hard but we have to find a way to win down the stretch."
-Stoudemire

GOOD MOVE: With six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Rivers decided to bring in Jermaine O'Neal in place of Glen Davis to close out the game at the center position. Davis had earned the majority of the crunch-time minutes during the regular season for the Celtics, but O'Neal's stellar effort on both ends of the floor (12 points, five blocks) proved to be extremely valuable for Boston down the stretch.

INSIDE THE ARENA: New England Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick took in the playoff showdown from courtside seats at the TD Garden.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Rajon Rondo -- The Celtics' point guard flirted with a triple-double after bouncing back from a subpar first half. Rondo finished with 10 points, nine rebounds and nine assists overall and just one turnover in 43 minutes of action.

ROOKIE WATCH: Landry Fields -- The Stanford product had a tough time of it in his postseason debut, going scoreless from the field and grabbing just one rebound in 19 minutes.

NOTABLE: Chauncey Billups suffered a sprained left knee on a drive to the basket with under a minute remaining in the game. The point guard did not return to the contest, and was "unsure" whether he would be able to suit up Game 2 Tuesday night. The Knicks shot just 32.6 percent (14-of-43) in the second half. Kevin Garnett missed the majority of his shots (5-of-14) but still chipped in with a double-double of 15 points and 13 rebounds. New York's bench outscored Boston's by a 23-8 margin. The Celtics limited the Knicks, who are one of the best transition teams in the league, to just two fast break points. Defense in that facet of the game was one of Rivers' key points of emphasis during the pregame. Shaquille O'Neal did not play for Boston due to a strained right calf. Rivers said there was an outside chance Shaq could play in Game 2, but it wasn't likely. Despite O'Neal absence in the middle, Boston still outrebounded New York 44-34 overall. Jared Jeffries had nine rebounds in just 18 minutes off the bench for the Knicks.

UP NEXT: Game 2, Tuesday 7:00 P.M. @ Boston.
