Playing in their first home playoff game since 2004, the Knicks couldn't get the job done, losing to the Celtics 113-96.
The loss dropped New York into a 3-0 hole in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
Amar'e Stoudemire struggled throughout the night, clearly hobbled by a back injury sustained in Game 2. Carmelo Anthony also failed to replicate his Game 2 performance, finishing with just 15 points.
Ray Allen (32 points) and Paul Pierce (38 points) led the way for Boston.
