New York falls to Boston 109-98

The New York Knicks had an early 20-point lead, but collapsed in the fourth quarter and lost to the Boston Celtics, 109-98. Boston outscored New York, 29-15, in the final quarter, after trailing from 7:37 in the first quarter to 11:17 in the fourth quarter.

Knicks rookie Chris Copeland led all scorers with 34 points, shooting 11-of-18 from the floor and 3-4 from behind the three-point line. Shooting guard James White chipped in 16 points and forced five steals, while Pablo Prigioni collected 15 points and nine assists. Jeff Green led Boston with 25 points and six rebounds, while Jason Terry went 4-6 from beyond the arc and scored 22 points.

Mike Woodson and Doc Rivers opted to rest most of their veteran players.

Woodson chose to rest most of his regular guards as well, as Jason Kidd, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Ronnie Brewer all did not play. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were the notable Celtics to not suit up, along with Brandon Bass and Avery Bradley.

Knicks 108, Wizards 101: NYK Win Preseason Opener

Did the New York Knicks re-hire Mike D'Antoni?

It's only preseason, and at that, game number one of the preseason, but the Knicks shot the lights out from distance, defeating the Washington Wizards by a 108-101 score. Carmelo Anthony had 17 points on 4-of-9 shooting and grabbed five rebounds, but it was the Knicks' bench that provided most of the scoring. Steve Novak picked up right where he left off - in the regular season at least - as last year's league leader in 3-point percentage knocked down all of his seven three point attempts, finishing with a game high 21 points. The Knicks' likely sixth man, J.R. Smith, went 8-of-11 from the field for 20 points, and 35-year-old Argentinean rookie Pablo Prigioni had 14 points.

Many of the Knicks' new faces made their first appearances in orange and blue, including Jason Kidd who had four points and four assists while logging 23 minutes. Raymond Felton, back for a second stint with New York, started and led the team with eight assists. Another once-former-now-current Knick, veteran Kurt Thomas, earned the start in place of the injured Amare Stoudemire, who is nursing a knee injury.

The big knock on the Knicks as the season draws closer is their age and injury potential. Aside from Stoudemire, the Knicks' backup frontcourt was also out due to physical ailments, including Marcus Camby and the newly signed but not yet in shape Rasheed Wallace.

The Wizards, who were without point guard John Wall and center Nene, were led by Jordan Crawford's 17 points. Rookie Bradley Beal, who the Wizards selected with the third overall pick in this past eyar's draft, had 15 points off the bench in his first professional game.
