Research Notes

  • The Knicks won by 14 points in Game 3, their fourth largest margin of victory in a road playoff game in the last 30 seasons and largest since 1999. The last time the Knicks beat the Celtics by more than 14 points in a playoff game in Boston was in 1973, when they won 94-78.

  • The Knicks have scored under 100 points in each of their last 43 postseason games dating back to June 1999. From Elias: That is the longest streak of its kind in NBA playoff history and it's longer than any regular season streak in the shot clock era (since 1954-55). Their last 100-point game in the playoffs came in Game 5 of the 1999 Eastern Conference Finals against the Pacers.
