NEW YORK CITY ( It was undoubtedly a sad Wednesday night for all the New York Knicks fans after the New York Knicks lost out to the Boston Celtics in their home ground at the Madison Square Garden, New York. Both the teams had given a tough competition to each other and the New York Knicks were not far away from victory only if Boston Celtics’s Paul Pierce had not marred their efforts at the last moment. Amare Stoudemire’s from New York Knicks was seen shooting up an amazing performance last night. However, the Celtics emerged victorious with a score of 118-116.

According to basketball experts, it was an exciting game last night and both the teams played well giving out their best performance. With a mere 0.4 second left for the game to end, Paul Pierce came up with a jumper that resulted in a tie-breaker. Unfortunately as a result of this, rival Amare Stoudemire’s three pointer at the buzzer could not result in much help for the New York Knicks. It gave way to the Celtics who then were able to gain a victory over the Knicks beating them on their home ground. Had the New York Knicks won the game last night, it would have turned out to a straight eight back to back win for them. Alas their hopes were dashed owing to the last minute tie breaker from the Celtics.

Last night’s win has resulted in a straight 11th victory for the Boston Celtics. All thanks to their star player Paul Pierce who went on to score 32 points for his team. On the other hand, Amare Stoudemire had 39 points which was an addition to his record.
