New York Teams

Young Yankees lefty Justus Sheffield was impressive in his first inning of work, striking out two en route to retiring the side 1-2-3. He featured a few 96 mph fastballs and a sharp 88 mph slider for his strikeout pitch. His second inning went a little differently. A leadoff walk, a hit batter and a two-run Maikel Franco homer put an end to Sheffield's day. After an early 4-0 lead, the deficit in the fourth was cut to 4-3.

Michele Roberts, the head of the NBPA, wished Joakim Noah a happy birthday on Twitter and wrote, "WE HAVE YOUR BACK." If the Knicks & Noah don't part ways by March 1, it will be interesting to see if/how Roberts & the NBPA respond. The group has said it's closely monitoring Noah's situation with the Knicks.

Reggie Jackson on his one piece of advice for Giancarlo Stanton playing in New York: "Play good." Reggie, on the expectations surrounding Stanton: "Expectations are as big as his salary. So there are no surprises. I don't think he'll be surprised. It would be different if he didn't have a big toolbox."

This was a perfect loss for the tanking Knicks. Young players like Emmanuel Mudiay, Trey Burke and Frank Ntilikina got plenty of minutes (all played at least 24) and the Knicks competed for most of the night but ended up with a loss.

Kyrie Irving led the Celtics with 31 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in a 121-112 win over the Knicks. Jaylen Brown added 24 points on 10-for-17 shooting. Trey Burke led New York with 26 points on 10-of-19 shooting.
