- Celtics 110, Knicks 101: This one didn't go as poorly as least season's 104-59 debacle in late November. But it didn't go well enough. The Knicks managed to cut a 15-point deficit to four, but that happens a lot in the NBA. But Jamal Crawford can't score three points in 25 minutes and expect to be on the winning side. Zach Randolph had 18, but that was on 5-of-15 shooting. Wilson Chandler probably had the best game, dumping in 23. Don't forget that Kevin Garnett didn't play.
- Cavaliers 102, Nets 86: LeBron James put on a show, scoring 31 points. Maybe he'll be wearing a Nets uniform in 2010. Devin Harris had 23 points and four assists, but he also had five turnovers. New Jersey actually led this game at the half, but the Cavs outscored the Nets by 15 in the third quarter.
