In possibly their worst game of the season the Celtics were blown out Tuesday night by the Knicks in New York City, 114-88. The C's are now 15-32 on the year and have the fourth worst record in all of the NBA.
The Celtics were down by 35 at one point in the third quarter, which matched their largest deficit of the season. The Knicks led 31-15 after the first quarter and never looked back. Jeff Green led the C's with 14 points in the loss.
New York was led by Carmelo Anthony's game-high 24 points and also had five players reach double-figures in points.
The C's will be back in action Wednesday (7:30 p.m., CSNNE) back home when they host the 76ers.
What they'll be saying: It was an ugly night for the Celtics, who shot just 39 percent from the field and turned the ball over 17 times while allowing the Knicks to shoot 54 percent from the floor. Rajon Rondo had just seven points and four turnovers in 27 minutes of action.
