Jared Sullinger scored 14 points, with most of them coming in the fourth quarter, but the Celtics lost to the Knicks, 98-95 in overtime. Sullinger had a chance to give the C's the lead late in regulation, but he made just one of two free throws with 20 seconds left.
The Celtics led for most of the game, but New York relied on a veteran lineup that included Jason Kidd and Steve Novak down the stretch against the C's lineup of rookies. The Knicks were without several key players including Amar'e Stoudemire, JR Smith, Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace.
Jeff Green added 12 points and 4 rebounds of the bench in 28 minutes and Paul Pierce also had 12 and four. Rajon Rondo scored 9 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and had 4 assists and no turnovers, while remaining perfect from the free throw line in the preseason. Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 23 points and Tyson Chandler added 16 for the Knicks.

Five years ago, the Red Sox nearly confronted the same horrible two-word counterfactual inquiry that will haunt the 2012 Washington Nationals all offseason: What if?
What if the Nationals hadn’t shut down Stephen Strasburg? What if the dominating right-hander had been the Game 1 and Game 5 starter (relegating Gio Gonzalez to a Game 2 outing)? Or, even if on a restricted workload, could he have come in and impacted the end of a game as David Price did in 2008, when, as a rookie, he closed out the Rays’ Game 7 win in the ALCS against the Sox?
Would Washington have won its first playoff series since 1924? Would Strasburg have avoided the meltdown that Gonzalez endured in a 36-pitch fifth inning on Friday that set in motion the Cardinals...
