In close preseason game, Phil Pressey and Chris Babb provided a lot of excitement as the New York Knicks edged the Boston Celtics 103-102 on Wednesday night. Pressey was the Celtics' leading scorer with 13 points in 28 minutes, and Chris Babb scored four 3-pointers that helped the Celtics overcome a large deficit in the 4th quarter. Chris Babb doesn't even have a profile on NBA.com, and on the NBA's mobile site he is simply listed in the box score as a blank space with a period after it. I'm not joking, see the screenshot (to the right) from my phone. Hopefully he will earn a spot on the the Celtics' roster after his performance tonight.
