New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) – The New York Knicks may want to consider
boycotting future Sunday noon tip-offs.

Jordan Crawford led six Boston players in double figures with 23 points and
the Celtics pounded the Knicks, 114-73, at Madison Square Garden.

Jared Sullinger scored 21 points and Brandon Bass and Jeff Green both supplied
16 points for Boston, which got off to a quick start and cruised to its third
straight win. Avery Bradley added a double-double of 13 points and 10

Carmelo Anthony had 19 points to pace the Knicks, who were undone by a
horrific first quarter in which they were outscored 34-11.

New York, which had won two straight on the heels of a nine-game slide, were
sluggish in a 120-89 beatdown by visiting San Antonio on November 10, another
Sunday contest that started at noon.
