Playoff Glimpse? Celtics Beat Knicks In Regular Season Finale
BOSTON (AP) — Avery Bradley scored a career-high 20 points as Boston’s “B” team beat the Knicks’ second string 112-102 on Wednesday night in a regular-season finale both teams used to rest their starters, instead of as a tuneup for their first-round playoff matchup.
Glen “Big Baby” Davis had 17 points and eight rebounds, and Sasha Pavlovic added a season-high 19 points as the Celtics snapped a two-game losing streak despite resting their starters for the second straight game.
Amare Stoudemire played 20 minutes and scored 14 points for New York, which will return to Boston to open the Eastern Conference postseason on Sunday night.
