NEW YORK – – RJ Barrett banked in a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the New York Knicks 108-105 comeback victory over the Boston Celtics on Thursday night. The Knicks didn’t lead until there were just over two minutes left. “We need some leadership. Somebody that can calm us down and not get rattled when everything starts to go a little south. I think it snowballs between our guys.”
Robert Williams’ tip-in with 1:16 left in the first half gave the Celtics their final 24-point lead before the Knicks ended the quarter on an 8-0 run to pull to 63-47.
After Tatum’s three-point play and Mitchell Robinson’s dunk, Quickley’s floater gave the Knicks a 103-101 lead with 44 seconds remaining.
