The New York Knicks arrived wearing all black to Wednesday's playoffs game 5 in order to signify the Boston Celtics' funeral, but the Celtics came out victorious and the series will return to Boston for a game 6 on Friday.
Jeff Green was the leading scorer for the Celtics with 18 points (including a pair of clutch 3 pointers in the 4th quarter). 4 other players aside from Green scored double figures including Brandon Bass and Jason Terry with 17 points each, and Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce each scored 16.
After the game, Jordan Crawford had some interesting words for Carmelo Anthony (believed to be "that motherf#@ker f#cked your wife" - click here for video) and the Celtics and Knicks players had to be broken up. We will see how this affects Melo and the Knicks in game 6 and if they come out thirsty for blood.
Highlights above, box score below.
