Celtics-Knicks notebook

THE FACTS: Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo both posted double-doubles as the Celtics fended off a fourth-quarter rally to sweep the Knicks, 101-89, at Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony scored a game-high 32 points on 10 of 24 shooting and added nine rebounds.

QUOTABLE: "What you saw tonight was a microcosm of our season where we're playing well, we're playing well and we go away from it at times. But fortunately we got it back in time."
-- Boston head coach Doc Rivers on the Knicks fourth-quarter run that cut a 23-point second-half deficit to four points.

THE STAT: Amar'e Stoudemire rested and received treatment all of Saturday, took Advil before the game and said his back felt much improved. Yet he managed just one basket in the first half and shot 5-of-20 to finish with 19 points and 12 rebounds. After going for 28 points in Game 1, Stoudemire scored four points in Game 2 and seven in Game 3.

TURNING POINT: After the Knicks trimmed a 17-point halftime lead to 84-80, Paul Pierce (13 points) and Rondo scored back-to-back buckets to push the lead to 88-80 and the Knicks never got the lead back under five points.

QUOTABLE II: "Amar'e started the year out the way he ended it. He's all heart. He just gave it all. He's just been unbelievable all year as a leader and as a person. I would think with him and Carmelo going forward, the Knicks are in good shape."
-- New York head coach Mike D'Antoni.

HOT: Rajon Rondo put up 21 points and 12 assists to once again key the Celtics offense. That followed a 15-point, 20-assist, 11-rebound triple double in Game 3 and a 30-point outburst in Game 2.

NOT: After averaging 9.7 points in the regular season, Landry Fields concluded his dismal playoff performance by going 0-for-3 with 1 point. For the series, he was 3-for-15 with seven points.

NOTABLE: The Knicks have now lost nine straight playoff games dating to 2001. They have not won a postseason game since April 29, 2001, and haven't captured a home playoff game since April 22, 2001.

QUOTABLE III: "They're going to be good. I think Mike's one of the best coaches in this game. The addition of Carmelo was a huge addition for them. And they're just going to be able to keep building. You gotta be able to get pieces first. Having Stoudemire and Carmelo, those are two great pieces to have and they're just going to keep adding. As long as everyone stays patient with them, it will work out."
-- Rivers on the Knicks.

QUOTABLE IV: "If we was 100 percent there's no telling...it might've gone a longer series. But I guess we'll never know."
-- Amar'e Stoudemire

INSIDE THE ARENA: Kemba Walker, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Zach Galifianakis, Walt Frazier, Larry Johnson, Charles Oakley, Spike Lee and Woody Allen were all courtside.

UP NEXT: The Celtics await the winner of the Miami-Philadelphia series. The Heat lead 3-1.
