Michael Beasley scored 32 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, and the New York Knicks held off the Boston Celtics 102-93 on Thursday.
Beasley’s heroics offset an ice-cold shooting night from Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis, who finished with one point and 0-of-11 from the field.
“Just wasn’t in rhythm,” Porzingis said. “Early on the game just didn’t come to me. I tried to make some passes and I think I did the right thing a lot of times, but I just missed a few of my shots and then was out of the game.”
Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 32 points, but went 12-of-27 shooting. The Celtics played without starter Jaylen Brown, out with Achilles tendon soreness.
