Knicks-Celtics notebook

THE FACTS: Kevin Garnett drilled a go-ahead hook shot with 12 seconds remaining as the Boston Celtics overcame a 42-point night from Carmelo Anthony to sneak by the shorthanded New York Knicks 96-93 at the TD Garden. The victory gave Boston a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo led the Celtics with a postseason career-high 30 points, and Paul Pierce scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half of the win. Anthony tied his postseason career high with his 42 points to go along with a game-high 17 rebounds, leading a valiant effort for the Knicks who fought until the end despite playing without Amar'e Stoudemire (back spasms) in the second half.

QUOTABLE: "We won the game. That's all we got out of that. They had no Stoudemire, no [Chauncey] Billups ... They played hard. We were lucky to win."
-- Boston coach Doc Rivers

THE STAT: Anthony scored 13 straight points for the Knicks over a seven-minute stretch overlapping the third and fourth quarter. The outburst came in the midst of a 15-2 run for New York. Boston spent the majority of the rest of the game double-teaming Anthony.

TURNING POINT: New York had one last chance to take the lead after Garnett's hook, down one with the ball and 12 seconds on the clock. The Celtics forced the ball out of Anthony's hands with a double team on the wing, and the small forward passed out of the pressure to an open Jared Jeffries. Garnett quickly rotated to Jeffries and picked off an attempted pass by the power forward, while managing to call timeout for his team.

QUOTABLE II: "The Celtics didn't do anything special, they won two games on their home court. Now it's our turn to do the same thing."
-- Anthony

HOT: Anthony -- The Knicks' newest All-Star scored 26 of his game-high 42 points in the second half, all without fellow starters Stoudemire and Billups, who sat out the game with a sprained left knee. The former Nugget also made 10-of-11 free throws and dished out six assists in a strong bounce-back performance from Game 1.

NOT: Bill Walker -- The reserve small forward brought energy to the floor with eight rebounds for the Knicks, but couldn't buy a bucket against his former team. Walker missed all 11 of his attempts and managed to score just two points in 32 minutes of action.

INSIDE THE ARENA: Director Spike Lee wore a Knicks jersey while rooting on his favorite team from courtside at TD Garden.

QUOTABLE III: "Going down the stretch, just looking at it, I probably have never been more proud of a team and how they battled the circumstances, how hard they played and how tough they played. [We were] mentally tough and gave ourselves a chance to win. We just didn't quite do it."
-- New York coach Mike D'Antoni

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Ray Allen made all four of his three-point attempts on the evening on his way to a balanced line of 18 points, four rebounds, two assists, and three steals. The 35-year-old has been scorching from deep in the first two games of the series, going 7-for-9 from downtown.

ROOKIE WATCH: Knicks guard Landry Fields had the first four points of his postseason career, but spent most of Game 2 watching from the sideline. For the second straight game, Fields played just five minutes in the second half.

NOTABLE: The Knicks had a considerable advantage on the glass on both ends of the floor, outrebounding Boston 53-37 overall. New York also grabbed 20 offensive boards, which led to a crucial 24 second-chance points. The extra opportunities kept New York in the game, despite shooting just 35.6 percent as a team. ... Boston had 16 fast breaks, while also limiting the Knicks to a mere four points in transition. ... New York had just 12 assists. ... Jermaine O'Neal left the game in the first quarter to receive treatment on a sprained left wrist. He returned to the game in the second half for the C's and finished with two points and three rebounds in 20 minutes. ... Stoudemire told reporters after the game his back spasms flared up during pregame warmups, before becoming unbearable to play through in the second quarter. He was optimistic about his chances to play in Game 3 in New York. ... Boston's bench struggled for the second straight game, making just 33 percent (5-for-15) of their shots, while chipping in with only 14 points overall combined.

UP NEXT: Game 3, Friday 7 p.m. ET @ New York.
