BOSTON — Carmelo Anthony and his teammates wanted to sweep the Celtics on Sunday afternoon at TD Garden, but instead they will head home with a split of the two games here.
All things considered, the Knicks can’t be too unhappy about leaving Beantown with a 3-1 series lead.
After all, they can now win their first playoff series in 13 years on the Madison Square Garden floor Wednesday night in Game 5.
“We look forward to bringing this game back home to the Garden on Wednesday and the Garden will be rocking Wednesday,” Anthony said after going for 36 points on 10-for-35 shooting in the 97-90 OT loss. “We’ll be prepared for that.”
