For the first time in a regular-season game in the Big Three era a Celtic scored more than 40 points, but Paul Pierce's 43 points Tuesday night in New York weren't enough as the Celtics lost 118-110 after a deluge of Knicks 3-pointers. The Knicks made 19-of-32 from behind the arc as Steve Novak buried eight 3-pointers and J.R. Smith hit seven. Carmelo Anthony also recorded a triple-double with 35 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Rajon Rondo extended his streak of double-digit assist games to 23 with a 13-point, 13-assist effort.
The Knicks scored 40 points in the second quarter and set NBA records for most 3-pointers in a quarter (11) and in a half (14). Smith made his first five 3's and went 7-for-9 in the first half while Novak went 4-for-6. Behind Smith and Novak, the Knicks bench outscored Boston's 39-0 in the first half and led by as many as 20 points.

The Rangers lit up Jon Lester for seven runs and eight hits over just two-plus innings, matching the shortest start of his career, as the defending American League champs obliterated the Red Sox, 18-3, Tuesday night at Fenway Park. After winning their first three at home, the Red Sox have dropped two straight in falling to 4-7 on the season. The Rangers hit six home runs -- all well over 400 feet -- including one by Josh Hamilton of nearly 500 feet that landed in the vicinity of the Ted Williams seat in right field off beleagured reliever Mark Melancon. The Rangers pounded 21 hits in the offensive explosion.
Lester was spotted to a 2-0 lead after one inning when Dustin Pedroia launched his third homer of the season into the second row of Monster seats, with Mike Aviles aboard. Aviles, Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez led off the game with three consecutive hits against Colby Lewis. He allowed just three hits after that over the next six innings in...

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said before Tuesday's game that he has no idea if there will be a negative carryover from his public comments about Kevin Youkilis on WHDH-TV Sunday. After giving Youkilis the day off on Monday to rest his sore groin, Valentine returned Youkilis to starting lineup on Tuesday, batting him fifth and playing third base.
"No way to know," Valentine said. "I hope not."
Valentine questioned Youkilis' emotional state of mind in the interview on Sunday before ending the conversation by saying everyone will eventually see the usual good production from the third baseman. Youkilis requested and received a meeting with Valentine before Monday's game and Dustin Pedroia cleared the air in another meeting with the manager, after he objected with the way he publicly called out Youkilis.
