Knicks fall to Boston, lose second preseason game
- Updated: October 23, 2015
The New York Knicks played the preseason finale in Boston and end it with a loss, wrapping it up at 4 and 2. Jose Calderon stepped up from the first quarter scoring 8 of his total of 17 points. Robin Lopez helped building the momentum but the Celtics overcame in the second quarter and after a 22-6 run, New York was already down by 19.
Arron Afflalo went on a 4/6 shooting from the field, nailing 10 points but left the court with a left hamstring early in the third quarter and not returned on the floor.
#Knicks say Arron Afflalo is out with a tight left hamstring. He missed two weeks earlier in the preseason with a left hamstring injury.

Kristaps Porzingis was quick to get in foul trouble with three in the first five minutes but returned later on the court and finished with 8 points and 8 rebounds.
Although struggling for the most of the last quarter and losing 99-85, the Knicks showed fun to watch basketball in these six pre games. The season is about to start in just 4 games and New York will open in Milwaukee.
