The Celtics have reached a lot of low points already on the young season but Wednesday night likely takes the cake. The Knicks led by as many as 26 points in the first half before holding off a late Boston rally for a 117-109 win behind the play of Trey Burke (29 points, 11 assists) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (21 points). 

The boo birds were out in full force during the second quarter as the C’s opened up 0-of-10 from 3-point range and looked listless against a Knicks team that had piled up six straight losses, including a defeat in New York on Tuesday.
