Thomas scores 18, Celtics hold off Knicks for 96-92 win

NEW YORK (AP) The Boston Celtics are making a playoff push - and they came to the right place to keep things rolling Friday night.

Even if they had to sweat this one out a bit.

Isaiah Thomas scored 18 points, Jae Crowder added 17 points and nine rebounds, and five Celtics scored in double figures as Boston held off a late rally by the New York Knicks to win 96-92.
