BOSTON (AP) - The Celtics finally got their offense rolling to avoid a sweep by the Knicks. Now Boston will try to keep it going.
The first-round playoff series resumes Wednesday night with Game 5 in New York after Boston won 97-90 in overtime at home Sunday. The Celtics scored more than 80 points for the first time in the series and outscored the Knicks 13-6 in overtime. Jason Terry had Boston's last nine points.
The Celtics made 45 percent of their shots after averaging just under 40 throughout the first three games. The Knicks had their own shooting woes, notably Carmelo Anthony. He made just 10 of 35 shots and missed all seven 3-point attempts.
But no NBA team has won a series after losing the first three games.
