Knicks trip against Celtics at MSG, drop 2-2

Joakim Noah made his debut for the Knicks last night against the Celtics. Introduced as “Hailing from Hell’s Kitchen” instead of “University of Florida”, Noah special requested this form of introduction as an early 90’s avid Knicks fan. He played 19 minutes finishing with 5 points, 4 rebounds and one assist.

“Hell yeah I asked for that. It’s really special, it is my hometown, I remember coming to games in this building when I was a kid. I was really nervous at first. It was a real special moment for them to say my name and be introduced in the Garden and say Hell’s Kitchen.’’

The Knicks were behind the Celtics for most part of the game, with two short leads in the first half of the game while Boston controlled the game throughout the whole second half.

Down by 17 deep in the 3rd quarter New York attempted a comeback, narrowing the gap at just one point in the fourth but couldn’t carry the tempo and dropped the game to their rivals 119-107.

Kristaps Porzingis played 15 minutes, scored 9 points and left the court with an sore left groing at halftime. Porzingis said he’ll miss Sunday’s open practice but hopes to return on Wednesday to play the Celtics again, in Boston.

On to the next one. #NYKvsBOS

Carmelo Anthony dropped 15 points while Sasha Vujacic alongside Justin Holiday contributed with 13 buckets each.
