Notebook: Celtics 92, Knicks 86


Adam Zagoria, for NBA.com
Posted Wed May 01, 2013 10:32 PM - Updated Wed May 01, 2013 10:32 PM

THE FACTS: Five Celtics scored in double figures as Boston staved off elimination by beating the Knicks 92-86 in Game 5 of their series at Madison Square Garden.

Kevin Garnett led the way with 16 points and 18 rebounds. Jeff Green scored 18 points, Brandon Bass and Jason Terry had 17 apiece and Paul Pierce added 16 points.

Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith went a combined 11-for-38 for the Knicks, who have lost two straight games after taking a 3-0 lead in the series.

Anthony suffered a fourth-quarter shoulder injury after Garnett appeared to pull his arm and he finished with 22 points on 8-for-24 shooting. Knicks coach Mike Woodson said he was "fine" afterward.

Smith had 14 points on 3-for-14. Raymond Felton added 21 points for the Knicks.

Game 6 is set for Friday night in Boston, with a potential Game 7 slated for Sunday afternoon at the Garden.

Unable to close this series out at home, the Knicks are still seeking their first playoff series win since 2000.

QUOTABLE: "[The pressure] is on us still and them maybe but it's definitely on us still. It's another Game 7 for us. Every game since we've been down 3-0 has been Game 7 for us and that's the way we've been viewing it instead of thinking of it as a 3-0 game. You want to win the Game 7's and we're looking at each one of these as Game 7's, so it's still a ton of pressure on us. We're playing a really good basketball team and we know that."
-- Celtics coach Doc Rivers

THE STAT: The Celtics beat the Knicks at their own game, going 11-for-22 from the arc (50 percent), while the Knicks went 5-for-22 (23 percent). Anthony went 0-for-5 from the arc.

TURNING POINT: After the Knicks began the game on an 11-0 run, Boston outscored them 20-11 to close the quarter and 45-28 to end the half en route to a 45-29 halftime lead. Bass had 11 points at the break and Garnett had 10 points and nine rebounds. The Celtics then outscored the Knicks 24-21 in the third quarter to go up 69-60 after three.

QUOTABLE II: "Nobody said it was going to be easy but now it's a series. We had an opportunity tonight to close it and we didn't get it done. At the end of the day I still say we control our destiny and there's a lot of basketball left to be played."
-- Mike Woodson

HOT: Jason Terry followed his 18-point performance in Game 4 by scoring 17 off the bench in Game 5. He has now outscored Smith 35-14 in the last two games.

NOT: After saying the Knicks would've swept the series had he not been suspended in Game 4, Smith went 3-for-14 for 14 points in Game 5. He went 0-for-5 for three points in the first half and missed his first 10 shots of the game.

QUOTABLE III: "We were due. We're not a bad 3-point shooting team. I kept telling our guys, when you get 'em, take 'em...I just kept telling them to, Let it fly.'"
-- Doc Rivers

NOTABLE: Woodson reiterated that Amar'e Stoudemire (right knee debridement) could potentially play in the second round. "If we can get through this series tonight we have some days to practice with him and it gives him an opportunity to get some contact and then we'll evaluate it and see if he can play," Woodson said.

NOTABLE II: Garnett appeared to pull Anthony's arm early in the fourth period and Anthony walked to the bench in pain as the crowd was hushed. Moments later, Anthony returned to the game.

QUOTABLE IV: "It was a struggle for him pretty much the whole game."
-- Mike Woodson on Smith

QUOTABLE V: "I think we expect it to be a grind-out game, it's going to be a tough game, a great game to be a part of. We just can't wait for it."
-- Celtics' Brandon Bass on Game 6

QUOTABLE VI: "I'm a streaky shooter. If I hit one or two I get in my rhythm, and that's how my teammates want me to play."
-- J.R. Smith

INSIDE THE ARENA: Woody Allen, Jason Sudeikis, Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Stiller, Kevin Bacon, Katie Couric, Patrick Ewing and Timothy B. Schmidt sat courtside.

UP NEXT: Game 6, Friday @ Boston, 7 p.m. ET. Game 7, Sunday @ New York, 1 p.m. ET (if necessary).
