Despite Carmelo Anthony’s inefficient scoring, the New YorkKnicks quickly took a 3-0 lead against the Boston Celtics. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry were all past 35 and Rajon Rondo was out for the season with an ACL tear.

The team was led by the recently acquired Jeff Green but the team just simply did not have enough to beat the Knicks roster. This turned out to be the end of the line for Boston.

Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were traded after this season to the Brooklyn Nets, leaving Rajon Rondo as the sole player left from the 2008 championship team.

The Knicks looked like they had an opportunity to sweep the Celtics when they went up 3-0.

The Celtics began to rally in Game 4 and went on to win 2 straight before the Knicks finished the series in Game 6.

While it took a little longer than expected, the Knicks headed to the next round to face the Indiana Pacers.
