Celtics-Knicks notebook


By Adam Zagoria, for NBA.com
Posted Friday April 22, 2011 10:58PM

THE FACTS: Facing an injury-riddled Knicks team, the Celtics rolled to a 113-96 victory in Game 3 at Madison Square Garden and now lead the series 3-0. Paul Pierce paced the Celtics with 38 points, Ray Allen added 32 and Rajon Rondo posted a triple-double of 15 points, a franchise-record 20 assists and 11 rebounds. No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit.

QUOTABLE: "When he gets in a rhythm it allows all of us to get into a rhythm, even the coaches, because we see the game through him."
-- Boston head coach Doc Rivers on Rondo.

THE STAT: Playing with back spasms that have limited his movement since before Game 2, Amar'e Stoudemire started but looked stiff and awkward in posting seven points on 2-of-8 shooting. Chauncey Billups was inactive for the Knicks with a strained tendon in his left knee; he hasn't played since the final minute of Game 1.

TURNING POINT: The Knicks trailed just 52-44 at the break, but were outscored 34-19 in the third period as Boston put the game away and silenced the first playoff crowd at Madison Square Garden since 2004. Allen (10 points) and Pierce (8) combined for 18 points in the period, while Carmelo Anthony (3) and Stoudemire (2) managed only five. One game removed from his 42-point, 17-rebound performance, Anthony finished Game 3 with 15 points on 4 of 16 shooting.

QUOTABLE II: "It's tough. The guy's been on a bed for two days...his heart is in the right place. And he gave us everything he got. His body's a little bit dead. But he'll be ready to go on Sunday."
-- Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni on Stoudemire

HOT: After going for 30 points and seven assists in Game 2, Rondo again dissected the Knicks' defense and set a new franchise mark for assists. The Knicks simply had no answer for the speedy point guard.

NOT: Knicks rookie Landry Fields, once one of the brightest lights in the rookie class, continues to fade. He shot just 1 of 5 for two points after failing to score in Game 1 and managing four points in Game 2. D'Antoni said he would "ponder the question" about what to do with Fields going forward.

NOTABLE: The Knicks were swept in their last postseason appearance against the Nets in 2004. They have not won a playoff game since April 29, 2001.

QUOTABLE III: "It's tough, man, knowing that Amar'e's not 100 percent and Chauncey's not 100 percent. We're just trying to find our way on the fly right now. That's a tough situation. That would be making excuses if I sat here and say they beat us because we're not at 100 percent. I don't want to use that as an excuse."
-- Anthony

INSIDE THE ARENA: Spike Lee, Diddy, Larry Johnson, Steve Lavin and Justin Tuck were courtside.

UP NEXT: Game 4 Sunday @ MSG, 3:30 p.m.
